Episode 204: Val Walker

Val Walker is an author and former social worker. After experiencing a severe bout of isolation in the wake of a chronic disease, she set out to write a book about what it’s like to not be sure who will actually show up for you. Her book, 400 Friends and No One To Call, details the need for a real community, not just a pile of friends on Facebook or LinkedIn.
