I’ve started keeping track of the resources, tools, podcasts, and videos I assign clients every week in session with the hope they might be excellent tools for all of you as well. I’ll be posting my favorites every month this year so you can find them with ease.
If you have suggestions or recommendations for this list please send them to me- I always welcome more. Email them to email@example.com Thank you!
LISTEN IN: PODCASTS ON RELATIONSHIPS
I love listening to podcasts, and often reference them in session with clients. They’re a really easy way to learn about the science of relationships and often are a simple way to learn something new while driving, lawn mowing, or getting other things done. I wanted to share a few of my recent favorites and the most common episodes I send to the folks I work with.
INVISIBILIA - THE END OF EMPATHY
As you likely know, Invisibilia is a favorite podcast of mine. This episode handles understanding the perspective of another- even one who feels like an enemy and how we work to take each other’s perspectives into account. I will warn you, this was a really hard one for me to listen to- but I still highly recommend a listen.
INVISIBILIA - A VERY OFFENSIVE ROM-COM
Over the years I’ve heard many stories from clients about racial inequality and racism in their online dating experiences. This episode dives deeper into the experiences - specifically of Asian and Asian-American men in the online dating scene. It’s fascinating, and for some of you will be incredibly validating.
WATCH & LEARN: RED TABLE TALKS
If you’re not already watching, Jada Pinkett-Smith, her mother, and daughter host regular conversations on authenticity, personal growth, and relationships on Facebook called Red Table Talks.
As you can imagine, getting three strong women together for real talk makes for powerful conversations. In this episode, they invited my mentor, Esther Perel, to the table to discuss infidelity in relationships. I highly recommend watching.
