    Glad to hear this episode.
    I’ve been told I always make the most inappropriate comments so this was a must listen for me.

    I don’t think I’m as insensitive as I used to be, but it is still helpful to know that one should refrain from trying to fix the situation by one’s choice of words or saying at least… you’re not in a worst situation.

    Sometimes I like addressing the elephant in the room… but I don’t know if that is always appreciated.
