Stories Are the Key to Building Empathy
You’ve probably experienced this phenomenon yourself at some point in time.
1: You don’t care about someone, something, or you have a pre-conceived notion of how you should feel about someone or something.
2: You hear, read, or watch a story about that someone or something.
3: You have a newfound respect, understanding, and empathy for that someone or something.

I love listening to this podcast and I receive AJ’s emails. However, I really find the podcast too long. How about the speakers synthesizing their message and making it more succinct?
