YOUR FRIEND is a show about authentic connections in the age of social media. The premise is simple - two friends forgo emojis, likes and shares to have a one-on-one conversation where nothing is off limits. From rants, obsessions and fears to traumatic life experiences, regrets and goals, host Dane Reade phones a different friend each week to have an honest, thought provoking discussion that might just bring them closer. Technology has allowed humans to interact more than ever before but, to paraphrase Albert Einstein, have we lost our humanity along the way? Have our friendships suffered? YOUR FRIEND sets out to see what happens when someone reaches out, opens up and engages in an authentic way. We’re all connected so we might as well talk.

Original and Engaging!
I absolutely love the idea of this podcast! What a way for people to just connect and for us to hear what other people in the world are thinking and feeling. We're all connected somehow, so why not listen, learn, and engage? I think other people's stories, especially real everyday people, can help others in so many ways we may not know or think of. This podcast is a great way to reach anyone and everyone! If anything, consider yourself overhearing gossip, so grab popcorn, and enjoy 🙊
Dane really knows how to do a podcast! Give it a listen.
It’s like MTV’s Unplugged series, where they removed technology and electric instruments to give you the rawness of an acoustic set. Just bare conversation, unhampered by technology.
