#039 – Let’s Do Compassion Better

Hear a talk I did at a Unitarian Universalist church about compassion and why sometimes people have such a gross lack of it, and a discussion between me, and my friends Ari and Jamie about some ways that we’ve failed, and some ways we’re working on getting better at showing compassion.
