After an emotional break up, our producer Sam Eagan discovers that his circle of friends has pretty much disappeared. Eager to prevent another weekend from going by with no plans, Sam sets out to find a best friend. In this episode, Sam and fellow producer Sophie Kazis answer the question that many of us fail to think about until we reach adulthood: how the hell do you make friends as a grown-up? And along the way, Sam begins to question what his approach to making friends actually reveals about himself. This episode was produced by Sophie Kazis and Sam Eagan.VICE News Reports is hosted by Arielle Duhaime-Ross and produced by Jesse Alejandro Cottrell, Sophie Kazis, Jen Kinney, Janice Llamoca, Julia Nutter, and Sayre Quevedo.
