In this episode we cover:
- Why a book about climbing the corporate ladder gets the spotlight on a show about grief
- How little kid Errol’s delayed root canal influenced adult Errol’s entire career
- Can we get behind the headlines and really understand the actual humans behind the crisis in healthcare access? (hint: yes, but it involves activating certain brain centers)
- Building the equitable world from the ground up: Errol’s work in Haiti
- Why making healthcare more accessible will prevent more grief (when it’s avoidable), and reduce suffering (when it’s unavoidable)
- Navigating racism in the corporate world
