Thu, 15 Jul 2021

[Esther Perel Slim.jpg](https://open.spotify.com/show/6kAsbP8pxwaU2kPibKTuHE) Esther Perel is a psychotherapist and New York Times bestseller. Esther joins the Armchair Expert to talk about how social boundaries were affected during the Covid-19 pandemic, how helping people during this time helped her feel less anxious herself, and her thoughts on how people re-entered society after the lockdown ended. Esther explains the difference between fidelity, exclusivity, and loyalty when it comes to romantic relationships, how confirmation bias plays a role in how you deal with people you live with, and that you should be thankful more often to loved ones for things they do for you. Esther, Dax, and Monica play Esther’s new card game, Where Should We Begin - A Game of Stories.
