This One’s for the Lonely

Ekemini Uwan joins to discuss the difference between solitude and loneliness — how we can lean into being alone and also seek meaningful connection.

New York City may be jam packed with people, but it’s also been referred to as “The Lonely City.” In this episode, Katelyn and Roxy talk about living alone — the good, the bad and the ugly cries.

Ekemini Uwan joins to discuss the difference between solitude and loneliness — how we can lean into being alone and also seek meaningful connection.

And a fan favorite returns to the show to PREACH!
