Just what I was looking for!
I am reading the book Unselfie and was trying to find a podcast on empathy to listen to with my 6th and 8th grader. Thank you for making this podcast! It provides such great insight into the lives of others. My son even said it was “very interesting” and put his phone down to listen to the teen parent episode.
My only suggestion is that the audio quality could be improved. Some episodes have an echo and are a bit difficult to listen to. Also, I would love more interviews of children or teens. Perhaps we could hear from someone that has been bullied, uses a wheelchair, has been in Juvenal Hall, has been a foster child, is homeschooled or has same sex parents. Just some suggestions. Thank you for your time and commitment to this podcast! ❤️
