Denworth speaking at a TED talk

Friends are the family we choose, but what drives those bonds? Biology, psychology and evolution are important under pinings to our relationships. On The Point, we talk with science journalist Lydia Denworth about her research into friendships and whether social media is changing the nature of our relationships. Denworth’s latest book is Friendship- The Evolution, Biology and Extraordinary Power of Life’s Fundamental Bond.
