This podcast is blowing my mind. I had heard some of these ideas before but never framed exactly like this. Suddenly I have a better idea how to respond to people I disagree with online and in real life. It gives me a sense of empowerment and understanding, and markedly decreases my anger and frustration.

I learn so much each time I listen
