Matt has always wanted to do an episode about honesty — and after reading Judi Ketteler’s new book, ‘Would I Lie To You?’, it was clear that she was the person he needed to talk to about the subject. Listen as Judi and Matt dive deep into what it really means to live honestly, the lies we commonly tell and why we tell them (with personal examples from both Matt and Judi), what drives us to be dishonest in the first place, why we insist ‘honesty is the best policy’ even when we’re not honest ourselves (which makes the policy itself a lie!), why we are wired to feel shame when we‘ve been dishonest, how that shame sometimes makes us lie even more— and what the world might look like if we all understood how often we‘re not actually telling the truth. Basically, you (yes, you) are a liar whether you realize it or not, and you should listen to this episode to understand why— and what, if anything, can be done about it.
