    Join Lawrence and I this week as we discuss a recent hot topic worth spending a few minutes tackling: toxic positivity. What is it? Why do people do it? Why is it unhelpful?

    Fairweather Allies?

    Join us in this week's conversation as we discuss the reality of post-Covid life, and the 'return to normal' that is starting to roll back a lot of well-intended efforts around diversity.

Lawrence and I tackle what being an ally really needs to look like in our 'new normal,' and possibly on-coming recession.

But what happens when our behavior when we are angry begins to cost us too much? Is it possible to manage our own anger? Is it possible to help someone else with theirs? Join me and Lawrence as we talk about all the versions -- work, family and ourselves.
