True Stories and Other Damage is an antidote to the social woes under which we all labor. Our discourse as intelligent humans does not fit into 180 characters. These long form conversations highlight our similarities, help us benefit from our differences and give us a path towards Kokua. Cross pollinating social networks helps expand our collective knowledge and expose everyone to new ideas and perspectives. Exposing oneself to different ideas and perspectives can only help us understand each other in a deeper and more meaningful way.
So enjoy your cardio workout, cleaning your house, your commute or wherever you listen to podcasts and check out stories and conversations from fellow humans around the world. Who knows, maybe one day we will sit down with you.
