Exploring the way we relate, date, and communicate. What does it mean to be a human being in the 21st Century? Grab a cup of tea (or wine) and join us as we explore relationships, friendships, family, workplaces, societies, sex, and our relationships with nature, technology, and ourselves. We'll look through several lenses - psychology, sociology, maybe even physics or biology - and invite experts on social connection (in other words, pretty much anybody who has interacted with other people in their lives).

Can "broken" parents raise happy children?  - with Ameé Quiriconi, One Broken Mom
How were you shaped by your parents or caregivers? What affect do we have on our children? And how do we raise healthy, happy children when we ourselves feel 'broken'?We explore what it means to be 'broken', how seemingly small things in our childhoods can contribute towards our trauma (and we all have trauma in some form), how we can use our adverse experiences to our strength instead of letting them hold us back, and how we can still raise children even when we are still a healing 'work in progress'. Join us for a frank discussion on what it means to be a parent who is still trying to deal with their own sh*t.
