Self Help Radio 070522: Kindness


Airing the night of the fourth of July, when grown-up children with their explody toys are deeply unkind to people with PTSD & to pets everywhere, this week's Self Help Radio sought to explore kindness with music & talk.  You can see the music played on the playlist below.  There were guests - one talked about kindness in the movies, another was voted The Kindest Person In America 2021, & a last one - more contrary - talked about his book Kindness Is Overrated. We talked about idioms. & we hoped to increase the amount of kindness in the world - at least on the radio - for a three hour period.

Inasmuch a radio could do such a thing. That's the thing about kindness - even if your kindness doesn't actually increase the overall kindness in the world, it's still kindness, which is something so rare & strange that it's just nice to see it - & do it - once in awhile.

So enjoy a show about kindness.  You're very kind to listen.  We'll kindly take our leave now.
