On this week's podcast, America's contributing writer Eve Tushnet joins hosts Matt Malone, S.J., and Kerry Weber. Following the publication of her feature article on the subject, Tushnet discusses the value of relationships that don't necessarily fall into traditional categories like marriage and religious life. Eric Sundrup, S.J. joins to offer an additional perspective.

When asked about the types of friendship people are longing for, Tushnet explained: "It's someone to come home to. When you really need a sense of home, you come home and there's a person who is there for you. That I think is a really basic human need. For some people that's someone they can sacrifice for, someone they can give to."
