Send us a message - we'd love to hear from you

Lies and omissions damage trust. That might sound painfully obvious, and you may think, “I never hide information, and I certainly don’t lie.” In reality, we have all likely been in situations where we don’t feel comfortable sharing everything we know, so we make a quick decision to keep quiet without considering possible consequences. Ila and Charles talk about what leads us to lie or withhold information (spoiler alert: reasons include unexamined assumptions, high pressure, and unclear expectations), and how we can build greater trust in our relationships with intention and practice.

We want to thank the team that continues to support us in producing, editing and sharing our work. Jonah Smith for the heartfelt intro music you hear at the beginning of each podcast. We LOVE it. Hillary Rideout for writing descriptions, designing covers and helping us share our work on social media. Chad Penner for his superpower editing work to take our recordings from bumpy and glitchy to smooth and easy to listen to episodes for you to enjoy. From our hearts, we are so thankful for this team and the support they provide us.
