Eli Schwamm The Real Empathy
    Fei Wu

    Hey. Hello. How are you? This is a show for everyone else instead of going after top 1% of the world, we dedicate this podcast to celebrate the lives of the unsung heroes and self-made artists.

    People in a position of power use quote unquote empathy as a way to justify telling people who are suffering what they need. Yeah. Um, as opposed to actually listening to the people who are suffer. Uh, and hearing from them firsthand what they need and trying to work with them to figure out how to provide it.

    I've learned that I need to always hold the distance between me and other people and always hold this idea that I can't possibly understand what somebody else is experiencing and that the only. To take a stab at understanding is to really listen with an open mind and an open heart to what they're saying.

    It's really important, I think, in those interactions to approach the person at their level. Tell me what's, what's bothering you? Tell me what's going on, and I'll do my best to sort of bring you to the hospital, if that's what you need, or to, to provide the little amount of care that EMTs can provide on scene.

    Uh, the world is filled with people who are doing, who are passionate about things. For me at least, it's important for me to be consistent and to not, like, spend a bunch of money getting into some hobby and then drop the hobby. Sometime in the future, but I think it's also really okay for me to experience different things and dabble in different things.

    It's okay for me to get really into audio engineering for a few years and then pull back a little bit. Um, and I, I hope to continue for the rest of my life to have things that I'm committed to, like my career. And my family. Um, and then to also leave myself the space to explore and to try to find new things that I'll be

    committed to.

    Hi there. This is your host, FA w and you are listening to a brand new episode from Face World Podcast. Today's superhero is Eli Shroom. Okay, just kidding. Eli is also an unsung hero who has appeared on a much earlier episode of Face World episode 27. I actually couldn't believe this when I said it because that was more than a hundred episodes ago.

    Anyway, Eli opened that episode by introducing himself with a rap song that he wrote. He learned to produce music while he was still in high school and he was only 17 years old. In episode 27. He learned how to rap back then, held a near 4.0 gpa, volunteer at Samaritans in Boston for a few years, and even went back there to continue his work during college.

    That episode remains to be one of the most popular, most downloaded episodes of all time. Eli and I. Still can't believe that is true. So where has he been? Where is he now? This episode answers all the questions. So if you have been a fan of Eli, this is the episode for you. We talked about giving and receiving feedback, an area where Eli's paying close attention to and hopes to improve upon.
