EP. 147 — Empathy

The Professor Blastoff gang starts off with some light-hearted stories this week about meditation, Ben Kingsley, and weird sex pills. Then, guest Leslie Spann joins to discuss how empathy can affect daily life and normal interactions for extremely empathetic people. They go down a darker path that weaves through death, forgiveness, resentment, David and Goliath, old age, and whether it’s weird to eat alone in a restaurant.
