In this episode, Katie and Berin talk about empathy. They discuss the way culture can promote or discourage having compassion for other people. Thoughts are shared about how a lack of empathy is sometimes a failure of critical thinking, by not understanding how helping others is beneficial to one’s self. Also, a brief interlude about elephants.

(After finding and watching the elephant video again I realize that a lot of what I said in the podcast is completely wrong. They aren’t wild and they human wasn’t a stranger. But it’s still an awesome video that demonstrates that elephants have more empathy than some humans. -b.)
