But if you can provoke some better listening that would be a goal for a show like this. To look at someone in an extreme situation, and talk about it, and through that recognize something you can translate to your normal life.

Well, it is to early to tell but I know that I am going read the book again and will be activating a Hulu account soon.
In the meantime, listen when others are talking!
