Episode 1: "Sucks to be you" - Empathy, and why it's excellent
Updated: Nov 23, 2021
COMING 23 NOVEMBER 2021!
It's quite hard to think about what empathy is sometimes. Or why it's useful.
Luckily, Brene Brown has thought about this for us:
"Empathy fuels connection. Sympathy drives disconnection."

“It's not the survival of the fittest - it's survival of the kindest.”
Have you ever received the message that being kind is weak? Think a-bloody-again. Empathy is written into us and the way we interact with each other. Being able to empathise with people is an enormous strength, and really improves your communication skills.
In this episode, Hannah and Lizzie talk about what empathy is, why it's not the same as agreeing with people, and how we can cultivate more of it.
