Christina Cauterucci is a staff writer at Slate Magazine, editor of Where the Girls Go - a blog, and host of two Slate podcasts.
This month, Christina admits to creating a quarantine bubble, and she talks with Bryan and Rumaan about why she felt comfortable joining her friends in this way and why our community seems better-equipped than others to figure out how to make such micro-communities work.
