Safe Space Radio
About This Show
Safe Space Radio is a live show for courageous conversation about difficult subjects. I conduct half hour interviews with people who have struggled with painful, often stigmatized challenges, and gone on to generously offer their stories as a gift to others. These stories not only offer hope and resources but invite people to feel less alone, less ashamed and more understood.

We begin a new season of the show with some of the best episodes from the early days of Safe Space Radio. We'll be updating them with new commentary, bonus segments and occasional follow-up conversations. Today we revisit my 2010 interview with psychiatrist Aaron Lazare about the impact of shame and humiliation, and how to repair the damage they cause. Then, a new conversation with a current medical student about how shame can complicate the relationship between doctors and patients, and what can be done to reduce it.
