Mindful Communication Podcast episode #44 - Your Friends Are Lying to You On Facebook (And I Can Prove It)

The title of this episode may seem dramatic, but I assure you it is entirely accurate. So much of our language is shrouded with cultural nuances, that we're not even aware of how we communicate in a way that is inauthentic and ineffective.
