Alexandra Petri on embracing your inner awkwardness
What do you do when you forget someone's name mid-introduction? Or wave at someone who wasn't waving at you? Alexandra Petri has a personal take on precisely these kinds of scenarios.
The Washington Post columnist joins Shad to discuss her new collection of essays, A Field Guide to Awkward Silences, and the benefits of embracing your blunder-prone side.
Petri (a.k.a Sister Gloria) also describes the time joined a new religion to avoid being rude, and why she thinks pop culture gets the awkward girl all wrong.
