We're thinking about race and friendship on the show this week. Yesterday, we brought you stories about the moments when race became a flashpoint in your friendships. And today, we're excited to share a partner episode from NPR's Code Switch podcast—it includes expert perspectives on why our friend groups tend to be made up of people who look like us, and advice for their listeners about the uncomfortable racial dynamics they’ve encountered in their own friendships.
If you missed our episode featuring your stories about the moments race became a flashpoint in a friendship—and what happened next—head over to deathsexmoney.org/friendship. While you're there, take our survey to think more closely about how race plays into your own friendships, and learn how your responses compare to national averages.
