Have you ever needed a companion to a dinner, symphony, or movie, but aren’t looking for a date?
Try the ‘strictly platonic’ section on craigslist! This week on How to Behave, Brian Keyser calls in from Montreal to talk about meeting a friend on craigslist to accompany him to a recent ‘Outstanding in the Field’ dinner. Today, Brian chats with co-host Hannah Howard, craigslist-frequenter Matt Mirapaul, and Brian’s new friend- Meg Bedard! Find out how Matt has made several friends via craigslist when he’s in a pinch for a partner for a cultural event. Hear why Meg responded to Brian’s listing, and the risks and concerns that many people have with meeting on the Internet. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Thanks to Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord for the theme music.

“The web enables connections that might not otherwise be made. This event proves that nice people can meet through a few lines of text on a webpage.” [24:00]
