Does Empathy have Limits? (15:48) C. Daryl Cameron, Ph.D.  an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and a research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute, at Penn State University. Empathy is the ability we have to understand and share feelings with each other. But is empathy outdated and overhyped in today’s world? Is empathy problematic, limited, and bias in an ethical way? Daryl Cameron shares some answers to these hard questions. Broken but Not Worthless (1:06:51) Life is hard. There is no getting around it, but for some reason it makes us feel better when we learn we aren’t the only ones struggling. One prime example of this is our guest Kristina Kuzmic, a free-lance writer and blogger. Kristina has an in-your-face perspective on issues of parenting and life in general. In fact, you may have seen Kristina recently on your Facebook feed, or on any one of a number of internet, radio or TV outlets. She has become a Youtube sensation with her “mom-centric” videos about raising children and juggling all of life’s challenges, with over 300 million views across media outlets and websites worldwide. Kristina shares with us more about her experiences with depression. Caitlin Thomas - Famous Moms (1:32:07) Recently we celebrated Mother’s Day. The day we all get-together and thank our moms for doing everything that they have done for us. I don’t think it’s ever enough to just say it out loud, but it still makes me happy to know that we have a day that is completely dedicated to women and all of the sacrifices that they make. Producer Caitlin Thomas shares the info. Religion and Porn Addiction (1:54:31) Brian Willoughby, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the School of Family Life at Brigham Young University.
