"I’m always pulled toward anything that helps me figure out how to live a meaningful and substantive life." – Maria Popova

What does real friendship look like? How can something written a thousand years ago help us to navigate our lives in the 21st century? 

On this week's Think Again, host Jason Gots speaks with Maria Popova, the creator, writer, and editor of Brain Pickings, a labor of love that  has grown into a massive web media presence -- a blog, newsletter, twitter feed and more that shares timeless wisdom from authors past and present about how to live a meaningful life. 

Maria reads the poem Possibilities by Nobel Laureate Wislawa Szymborska, which, along with three surprise interview clips with William ShatnerHoward Gardner, and Jon Kabat-Zinn sparks a far-ranging and revealing conversation on friendship, modern anxiety, and so much more.
