You may get the impression that shame is always a bad thing. That’s not exactly right. Dr. Gregg TenElshof, author of the new book For Shame: Rediscovering the Virtues of a Maligned Emotion, discusses the nuances of bad shame and good shame with the Mere Fidelity crew. When should we feel shame? For what should we feel shame? How does the body and appearance relate to shame? Listen in! (The +1 on this one is particularly good.)
