KINDNESS: December 2021 podcast playlist

Podcast Brunch Club listening list: Kindness podcast playlist. Like book club, but for podcasts.

It’s that time of year when gratitude and thinking of others is top of mind, so we thought a playlist all about Kindness would be a nice way to end the year. Not to mention the fact that we simply need more kindness in the world these days. As we’ll hear on this playlist, kindness doesn’t have to be a grand gesture; it can be as simple as offering a hug or teaching someone a cool card trick.

  2. What prevents people from acting more kindly toward one another?
  3. Do you think that understanding the science behind the health and happiness boosts that we get from being kind will incentivize people to behave kindly or is it simply a personality trait?
