Ethan Watters

Host Marcia Franklin talks with author Ethan Watters. Watters, who was still unmarried in his thirties, decided to write an article about the phenomenon of singles forming their own familial groups, which he termed "Urban Tribes." The response was so overwhelming that he turned the article into a book by the same name. Watters talks with Franklin about the benefits and pitfalls of these social groups.
