Empathy Gap Podcast


Empathy Gap Podcast – Introduction

Dear America,

We have a problem.

Our failure to empathize is a key part of most social problems— crime, violence, racism, child abuse, and inequity, to name just a few.

Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another

This podcast is about relearning the art of listening and understanding. Not to agree but to hear a different perspective than our own.

Just because I disagree with you doesn’t mean I need to hate you.

In doing so, we are practicing the art of empathy. One conversation at a time. To better understand what makes us who we are.


This is the Empathy Gap Podcast series.
