This week’s episode is all about Tony! First off, he’s now fully vaccinated! Wei-Shen calls him out for previously bragging that he doesn’t get reactions to vaccines. Tony also had his first in-person interview at the very-loved White Horse Tavern in Downtown Manhattan. We discuss his issues with anxiety and how he has dealt with it so far. 

Then, they discuss how things will start to change when people start to go back to offices. There will be new anxieties that people have to deal with. How do firms manage that without alienating their workforce? How do they encourage their people to overcome their anxieties instead of shrinking away from things that make them uncomfortable?

The key, we think, is also in showing empathy, even when we don’t fully understand the why or how.
