508: Connecting from afar

Bart and John are socially distancing, like most of America. What does that mean for our all-important human connections?

Bart emphasizes the importance of listening to each other, reaching out, asking how people are doing and genuinely hearing the answer, and more.

The reason this podcast exists, even in trying economic times, is because some people support it monthly at Patreon.com/HumanizeMe. Please consider supporting us there for the cost of a cup of coffee once a month and get extra content for it. That amount won’t likely matter much to you, even now, but it will mean everything to us! (Includes access to the monthly bonus podcast, ‘Why It Matters’, where we discuss the show and read listener feedback, and the ‘Campolo Sessions‘, long-form conversations between Bart and his dad Tony Campolo.)

Humanize Me is hosted by Bart Campolo and is produced by John Wright at JuxMedia.com.
