Prologue: What’s More Than A Feeling?

More Than A Feeling

Apr 12 2022 • 35 mins

Before we dive deep into stories about fear, acceptance, jealousy, joy, shame and other big feelings, we have to get philosophical and ask: what are emotions anyway?

Host Saleem Reshamwala was always trying to figure this question out when he was growing up as a mashup kid: bouncing back and forth with his family between India, Japan and North Carolina. It turns out there are some hidden clues to be found in how we try to translate words for emotions from one language to another. And this opens up a new universe of possibilities for how we describe and relate to our feelings.

Featured in this episode are Dr. Ashley Ruba and Dr. Tim Lomas.
