A Rumor of Empathy on the Air, Lou Agosta to Host Radio Talk Show: Starting Wednesday April 8, 2015 at Noon CDT and Running for Twelve More Weeks on VoiceAmerica.com


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2015 -- Lou Agosta is on the air pursing a rumor of empathy in the community. Join Lou and his guests for an on the air conversation about expanding empathy in the community. Empathy is supposed to be like motherhood and apple-pie – everyone is in favor of it. Yet the resistance to empathy raises its head in the pressure to conform, comply, and not rock the boat in the face of emotional suffering, breakdowns in communication, cynicism and resignation. If empathy were so easy, there would be more of it in the world.

This show makes empathy less of a rumor and more of an expanded reality in the community. A rumor of empathy on the air is committed to providing a gracious and generous listening – empathy – in conversation with its guests and listeners. Listeners will join the host in chasing down and confirming or debunking an unsubstantiated report of empathy in the community and engaging in an on the air conversation in transforming human struggle and suffering into meaningful relationships, satisfying results and contribution to the community. When a person is really listened to empathically and heard in their struggle and effort, then something shifts – possibilities open up that were hidden in plain view. Action that makes a difference occurs so that empathy becomes less of a rumor and an expanded reality in your life and in the community. When all the philosophical arguments and psychological back-and-forth are over and done, in empathy, one is quite simply in the presence of another human being. Opportunity will be available to dial in with your questions and comments. Join Lou for an empowering conversation in which empathy is made present.
