Episode 146: The Hurtful and The Critical
4 days ago
In living our lives and putting our experiences, creations and selves into the world, we also draw attention for various types of scrutiny and critique. While it's certainly valuable to have feedback - ideally constructively so - many people take an aggressive or hostile tone under the guise of criticism. This week we're joined by Amy Young to explore the distinctions between "the critical" and "the hurtful". How might typical human tendencies presume input to be negative when that may not be intended? How could we avoid the discomfort that many of us associate with criticism by proactively seeking it out? Are there certain figures or relationships which permit criticism more openly or with lower potential for conflict than others?

an OK show!
Technical Ability: Competent
Structure: none, really - just discussing a topic.
Hosts: Meh. Interesting people, but basically share the same viewpoint. Show tends to be the two hosts echoing each others' thoughts. Needs an opposing host (a woman? a conservative?) to be truly engaging.
