Cara Eckhardt, PhD (my BFF! part 2) on friendship and Red Hots
Play • 35 min

Cara Eckhardt, PhD is my BFF. In part 2 of my conversation with her, Cara and I talk about our own 20-year friendship, how we have stayed close after so many years, the impact that celebrating each other's lives has helped us strengthen our connection, how adults form friendships generally, and how to not lose yourself after becoming a parent. There is also talk Flamenco singing, Sesame Street and Disney villains, my awful experience on the placebo in an allergy medicine RCT,  and our epi-style Fyre Fest.

The audio clips of Cara singing flamenco include fast-paced Tanguillos (a classic form of flamenco from Cadiz, Spain), slow and lovely Guajiras (an example of “ida y vuelta” flamenco showing a style that flowed to Cuba and came back to Spain with Cuban influences), as well as a cover of the song, “Naita,” a modern pop song with Flamenco influences about social disparities by the Spanish group, Ojos de Brujos.
