Only Human

Hosted by Mary Harris

Only Human is a show about health that we all can relate to. Because every body has a story.


Listen Up!

It’s not easy to improve our hearing. But everyone has the ability to become a better listener.

Only Human invites you to participate in a listening bootcamp week that starts November 16 (but you can start the challenges at any time). With guidance from a memory champion, a world-class mediator, actors and improv comics, we've got five challenges designed to help you sharpen your listening skills. Sign-up!

    Mastering the art of listening is also about mastering conversation. With help from the world of improv comedy, you'll learn how to take your listening skills to new heights. 
  • Listen Up! Day 4: Memorize This!

  • Listen Up! Day 3: Take a Breather

    So often we scramble to fill up silence in conversations. But the best listeners know when others just need to be heard.

    While we don't literally listen to body language, there's a lot of information you can get and communicate without words. Grab a partner and take a few minutes for a mirror game.
