BARTALK #26: Apologies & Atonement

Release Date: Monday, 21 February, 2022
Listen HERE.

We are all taught that apologies are important to resolve conflicts. Apologies have an important function in our society- in personal relationships, between governments and citizens, corporations and consumers, celebrities and adoring fans. 

But so often people are criticized for making bad apologies. In this BARTALK, we wonder: what makes a good apology? What are models of seeking atonement for your actions? What does justice look like for historical wrongdoings? What does it take to accept an apology?
