What's Betwixt Us: Stories of Working While Human is a series of conversations about empathy at work, at work. It’s about diving into the messiness and the specificity of being human on the job—any job—and how empathy isn’t just a nice-sounding buzzword for company PR, it’s a rebellious act of remembering that we’re Human First, Everything Else After.

    Episode 035: The Good Burdens for Better Connections with Christina Crook

    In this episode of "What’s Betwixt Us," you’ll hear a conversation recorded on Instagram Live with author, speaker, and digital well-being expert Christina Crook. We chatted on launch day of her new book, Good Burdens: How to Live Joyfully in the Digital Age. Christina is also the author of The Joy of Missing Out and host of the JOMO(cast) podcast. All of her work focuses on how to balance and find joy in an overwhelming world.

We talk about the paradox of choice, the longterm value of making commitments, and daily practices that lead to more fulfilling relationships, especially with oneself.
