Every month is a good month to treat each other with kindness, but hopefully the holidays inspire a little extra kindness in all of us, right?
So in this episode, we celebrate the season by highlighting some of the kindness shared on Reddit, often in r/HumansBeingBros. "Bro" in this case is gender-neutral, of course.
