Inspiration Point: Killer Empathy

26 Aug

Something to listen to if you’ve got a moment.  Yes, the story about ‘the killer’ is interesting but what is more moving, human and interesting is the effect following this story had on the researcher and how it affected him. Truly powerful…brought a tear to my eye!

'Sometimes being a good scientist requires putting aside your emotions. But what happens when objectivity 
 isn't enough to make sense of a seemingly senseless act of violence? In this short, Jad and Robert talk to an entomologist about the risks, and the rewards, of trying to see the world through someone else's eyes. '
