    Mister Neighbor has something great in store for you this week, once he’s changed into some comfortable shoes. All he has to do is walk out of frame and suddenly you’re somewhere new. You hope Mister Neighbor takes you to the factory to show you how the machines put together your favorite things, but it could be anywhere. Maybe you’re on a spaceship, traveling from port to port trying to broadside a merchant ship. Maybe you’re still falling down that infinite pit of blackness you find you return to in quiet moments. Maybe you’re on hold forever with technical support. When you tell your mom about Mister Neighbor, she looks concerned, and tells you that’s not his name.

  4. #176: The Vanishing Neighbor

    In the past 20 years, there’s been all kinds of research about declining community life in America. Participation in PTAs, civic clubs, even bowling leagues is on the decline, and Americans don’t really know who their neighbors are anymore. My guest today argues that what we’re seeing is a transformation in how people organize themselves socially. Why people are doing this, and how it affects our society, is what author Marc Dunkelman ("The Vanishing Neighbor") and I talk about.
