On the heels of the series with Wanda Holland Greene about forgiveness, agency, self awareness and finding common ground, Kelly takes a list of lingering questions to world class psychologist, Dacher Keltner at UC Berkeley, and asks him everything she ever wanted to know about why we do the weird things we do. And the answers are fantastic.
Forgiveness may be the most advanced intellectual and emotional move we make as humans. It is a complete override of our innate nature to categorize friend and foe. Along with thought leader Wanda Holland Greene, Kelly brings to life three unforgettable stories of forgiveness from around the world.
Self awareness involves understanding how our behavior affects others. It is fundamental for any functioning society and relationship. Wanda Holland Greene and Kelly talk about body language, tone of voice, word choice, the terrible tendency to let ourselves off the hook and learning to listen to people who give us the straight truth.
Thanks to an election where many states came down to razor thin margins, we may have a renewed sense of our agency as voters. But what about agency over our emotions, our bodies, our relationships and careers? Educator and thought leader, Wanda Holland Greene, brings everything she's learned from her time at Columbia to her years leading The Hamlin School as she and Kelly work through what acts of agency are always available to us.
Renowned educator Wanda Holland Greene joins Kelly on election day to dig into finding common ground with absolutely anyone, even people we think we hate. They discuss the transformative power of discovering the many things we all share.
Annie Jean Baptiste in the Head of Product Inclusion at Google where she spends her time thinking about the products we use very day and how who's at the meeting determines what gets discussed, designed and built. Annie and Kelly wonder about confirmation bias, who we're drawn to, both at work and in our personal lives, and how our lizard brain keeps luring us into fight or flight responses that limit our growth and potential.
Dani Shapiro is the author of 9 books and the host of Family Secrets. She is curious about the things we hide from each other and the consequences of keeping secrets. Dani and Kelly consider the courage to know more about our DNA, our government and what's in our kids' texts, our air and our food.
Nadia Bolz Weber is known for calling a spade a spade in three bestselling memoirs and on her podcast, The Confessional. She is stand up comic turned Lutheran minister who refuses to oversimplify, engage in cheap positivity or humlebrag. Nadia and Kelly wonder together about the things we do in the name of consistency and how to make the call about what to let go of and what to never give up on.
Kelly and Kate Bowler dive into that phrase so often offered up to explain bad stuff: "everything happens for a reason." Kate is a divinity professor at Duke University and the bestselling author of three books.  She has a beloved podcast called Everything Happens.  At a time when so much feels unexplainable, Kate and Kelly wonder if this phrase offers actual comfort or does just the opposite. In this poignant and, strangely, also often hilarious, conversation, Kelly and Kate discuss the difference between finding meaning and making meaning, a life skill we'd all be well served to develop.
