Sudden Empathy, Too Much Empathy, and A Lack of Empathy

Today's show features empathy--having too much or too little, or what happens when it's switched on very suddenly. Aline Sandouk, Marc Toral, Amy Young, and Kaci McCleary discuss an autistic man whose ability to sense the feelings of others is activated suddenly; why ignoring what others think might help you win at life; and how incorrect beliefs about the biology of black people can lead you to misinterpret their pain just when they need you most. Plus a listener's plight gives us an opportunity to empathize with the lack of Short Coat Podcast episodes for her to listen to...and provide a solution. The post Sudden Empathy, Too Much Empathy, and A Lack of Empathy appeared first on The Short Coat Podcast.
