🎙️ New Episode Alert: Exploring the Promising Path of the Dignity Index
A promising new idea for our society
I hope this email finds you well. Today, I’m excited to share a thought-provoking episode of the Outrage Overload podcast that takes a look at a promising new idea aimed at reshaping our political discourse.
In an era where political conversations have often been marked by divisiveness and hostility, we take a closer look at an innovative approach – the Dignity Index. Join us as we explore how this groundbreaking concept is beginning to change the way we engage in political discourse.
In this episode, we reflect on the call for civility that echoed through political corridors several years ago, juxtaposed with the present-day reality of heated and polarized discussions. Tami Pyfer, a leading voice in the quest for a more dignified discourse, discusses how the Dignity Index has emerged as a beacon of hope in a landscape of escalating outrage.
Discover how this index is reshaping the way we approach politics. Learn how it encourages politicians and individuals alike to choose their words more carefully, fostering healthy debate and raising the level of discourse. We also explore the early results from a recent pilot project, providing valuable insights into the potential impact of this promising new idea on our society.
But what's truly remarkable is how the Dignity Index, initially seen as a tool for assessing others, has evolved into a mirror that reflects our own behavior. Our discussion touches upon this intriguing phenomenon known as "The Mirror Effect," where individuals who initially used the index to judge others found themselves using it as a self-reflective tool.
If you're passionate about science, politics, and exploring fresh perspectives on improving the way we communicate about the issues that matter most, this episode is a must-listen. It's an opportunity to glimpse into a brighter future where respectful conversations drive progress, all while looking inwards to refine our own discourse.
Tune in now on the Outrage Overload podcast and join us on a journey towards exploring the exciting potential of the Dignity Index.
Thank you for being a part of our community, and I look forward to hearing your feedback on this insightful episode.

It’s everything the Outrage Overload podcast is not. It’s not edited. It’s not scripted. It’s lightly researched. There’s no sophisticated podcast studio equipment. It’s almost always over an hour long. It’s David and Lisa talking about this week in outrage, what was in the news, in the memes, and maybe finding some backstory with a humorous (at least to us) twist.
