We all have those close friendships that survive over time, despite the fact that we live half a world apart. And now—with most of us living under lockdown for the foreseeable future—all of our friendships are long-distance now. Is there a secret ingredient to making those relationships last and deepen over time?

What are the best strategies for keeping friendships close in spite of the distance? We get some insight from two friends of the show, Stefania and Katharine over at This Life Explains it All podcast. Then we weigh in with our own thoughts on the subject—especially keeping in mind that Tiffany and Katy have kept their friendship alive and strong despite living thousands of miles apart for nearly 25 years.
