Humankind Special: Listeners
Humankind Special / PRX/Humankind

Airs Sunday, August 2, 202, at 7 p.m. In a time of polarization, the simple practice of listening to another can feel like a lost art. There’s a kind of mystery in sitting calmly, patiently, attentively and tuning into someone else’s personal story – their experience and life journey. In this new Humankind special presented by David Freudberg in association with WGBH/Boston, we hear the reflective insights of people who listen for a living: physicians, counselors and clergy.
