Tis the season... for socializing! Warning: This episode will change the conversation game at your next family gathering, office party and every ugly sweater party in between! Paula sits down with bestselling author, popular speaker (over 50M views on her YouTube tutorials) and self-described "recovering awkward person," Vanessa Van Edwards, for one awesomely helpful conversation. Today, as founder of Science of People (https://www.scienceofpeople.com/ ), Vanessa found a way to turn her fascination with people into a calling to help others. In this episode you'll learn the small swaps to keep your conversations off autopilot, ways to optimize both the areas where you are your best self and your most awkward self, and how to ask the right questions to unlock the connection you've been craving.

While at the network, Faris reported on everything from politics, news and entertainment to sports and faith, interviewing the likes of Hillary Clinton, Sean Spicer, Joe Biden, Tiger Woods, Reece Witherspoon, to the casts of "Star Wars" and "Avengers".

Faris graduated from Cedarville University ('97). She is a wife, mom, and dedicated follower of Jesus who bases her life and podcast on the foundational principals of Christianity, to love God and love people. She and her husband John reside in South Carolina with their three children.
