In each episode you’ll hear stories about unlikely friendships and surprising connections. And like all good stories, there are lessons in how to manage challenging situations and better understand your own relationships.

Episode 7: Parenting

May 24, 2017

Parenthood. It’s the mother (or father) of all relationships. On this episode of the Relate podcast, we’re exploring parenthood from a few different angles. You’ll hear about a tough-as-nails biker club in New York City that helps support moms and their newborn babies. There’s also a rather extreme example of parenting... from behind bars. And we get some hilarious perspectives on fatherhood and minivans from father and comedian James Breakwell.

Episode 5: Failure

April 26, 2017

You’ve heard it before: Failure is part of being human. What is not, perhaps, as widely discussed is the upside of failure—that our moments of imperfection can actually make us stronger. On episode five of Relate, you’ll hear the story of a man who hit rock bottom—he was homeless, an alcoholic—but somehow turned a single dime into a business empire. You’ll also get some useful tips on how to transform crash-and-burn experiences into stepping stones to success.

But embracing the unknown can lead to new perspectives. In this episode of Relate, you’ll hear from a man who was attacked by a white supremacist shortly after 9/11, which led him to find new meaning in his life... and in the life of his assailant.

Episode 2: Empathy

March 15, 2017

It seems like everyone’s talking about empathy these days. But what does it really mean to be empathetic? There's no app that tells you what's actually going on in another person's mind, but there are ways to connect to your friends and your family and your customers that will help you understand them better. In this episode, we’ll hear the story of how a treasure hunter's empathy brought two families together, and we’ll sit in on classes in empathy led by… babies.

Episode 1: The Kindness of Strangers

March 1, 2017

Everyone's got a story about that time you were stuck without money or a ride, and then some complete stranger comes along and saves the day. We're not talking about knights in shining armor here, just regular people who step up to help, even when there's nothing in it for them. In this episode, we explore the importance of connecting with people you don't know, those tricky situations where trust is the only thing you can rely on, and how we're all strangers—until we're not.
