    The Woke Lab: Asking for Help When You’re Afraid (w/ Shelly Tygielski)

    The Woke Lab: Asking for Help When You’re Afraid (w/ Shelly Tygielski)

    Why is it so hard to ask for help when we need it? Can love really spread faster than fear? As the official death toll hit 100,000 in the USA from Covid-19, Shelly Tygeislki's Pandemic of Love matched 100,000 families in need with 100,000 everyday citizens who were ready to help. She teaches us the powerful concept of mutual aid, and our live Woke Lab guests experiment with the question: What is an area of life where you could benefit from asking for help, but haven't asked?
