Here are the notes for episode #32 of Naked Humanity.

Loneliness: Mother Teresa once said that it was the great disease of the West. Was she right? Today experimental psychologist Dr. Eiluned Pearce discusses the one pain we all know: the pain of being lonely. Dr Pearce and Stefani discuss the origins of loneliness, why and how singing became an important antidote to loneliness, the unique loneliness of the modern world, and what we might be able to do to fix it all.
