Episode 6 - Samantha & Roman Krznaric / by Samantha Clarke

Can we show empathy in an increasingly tech driven world?

In this week's episode I explore this question and many more with Roman Krznaric. Roman is a social philosopher whose books, including Empathy, The Wonderbox and How to Find Fulfilling Work (one of my personal faves).  He is also the founder of the world’s first Empathy Museum and of the digital Empathy Library with curated lists of books and films to help you understand the science behind empathy and how you can take part in an 'Empathy revolution'. Having delivered talks and workshops in London prisons to Google’s headquarters in California, I ask him what it means to find fulfilling work, how we talk small steps to 'seize the day' in a considered way and in the changing physical and social landscape of work what is the role that empathy can play.
