Listen to Good & Decent's reflection on the importance of listening emphasized by a community initiative helping people to feel heard.

Listening isn't free — it costs time, attention, and effort. But what if you could get genuine listening for free? In this episode of Good and Decent, Senior Video Producer Josh Long shares a story about a listening project called Sidewalk Talk where people offer to sit down and listen to you with no strings attached.  

We listen to the interview of Aimee Rozen, who is a therapist and one of the listeners in this project. Stay tuned to the end for a special announcement about new things coming with Grotto Podcasts!
