About This List

Podcast Brunch Club is like book club, but for podcasts. We have 70+ in-person chapters across 6 continents. Every month, we put together a thematic podcast playlist. The August 2020 theme is "Apologies." Join us: https://podcastbrunchclub.com/how-it-works/
  1. This two-episode special is based on a course that Dr. Harriet Lerner and I did together on her groundbreaking book, “Why Won’t You Apologize?: Healing Big Betrayals and Everyday Hurts.” You can expect authentic, hard conversations (and one helluva role play) about making mistakes, healing hurts, and being brave. Harriet is a friend, mentor, and teacher. Her work has shaped my career and made my life better. During a time of deep uncertainty and anxiety - when many of us have struggled to be our best selves all of the time - apologizing has never been more important. (
  2. We trace the journey of an apology, from Japan to the U.S., that got an unlikely broker. Along the way, she had to work out: what a sorry is, who it's for, and what makes it stick.
  3. When Soraya was in college, her favorite professor hired her to help research a book she was writing. But when she fell into a deep depression and dropped out of school, she abandoned both the book and the professor who’d shown her so much kindness. Now, with Jonathan’s help, Soraya wants to make things right—with a grand gesture. Credits Heavyweight is hosted and produced by Jonathan Goldstein.

  4. From the Digital Box Set: Over the lifetime of a company, mistakes happen. When those mistakes cause damage, it's appropriate for a brand to apologize. Yet, it rarely happens. This week, we look at the companies that chose to apologize. From O.B. Tampons, who apologized to their customers with a song, to Domino's Pizza, who was forced to apologize when employees made an embarrassing YouTube video, to Maple Leaf Foods, whose CEO apologized to the families of people who had died from contaminated food. If an apology is genuine and timely, sorry is definitely the smartest word. This is an archived episode that aired originally on May 19, 2012.
  5. Real apologies from real people, all across the globe. This episode's theme - kids.   Apologies come from England, Australia, Pakistan, China, USA, Philippines.   This intimate podcast might be the medium's most diverse show. It's certainly touching and often gobsmacking.   Audio direction and original score Brian Wallace, creator and host Brett de Hoedt. A Radio Hootville / Podcasts of Justice production.
  6. A discussion with Brett de Hoedt, the host and executive producer of The Hardest Word.
