Episode 5 — The Bystander Effect
w/ Inder & Ish
Not to make this episode too heavy, but lets chat moral responsibility for a minute. Ever find yourself witnessing something that makes you stop in your tracks? Or really shakes you to your core so much so that you can't get it out of your head for days? You replay it in your mind and play out the different ways you could or should have reacted/acted/intervened. Yet, it wasn't your place. Or at least, you convince yourself that.
In this episode, we chat about The Bystander Effect — We share with you the research based evidence that supports/founded the phenomenon of the bystander effect, Inder and Ish share some of their stories of when they were observers of uncomfortable experiences and we discuss how to counter the way our minds have been wired to react in these sorts of situations.
Please note — this episode contains stories of the sensitive nature and may not be for the faint hearted.
