Let's K12 Better
Let's Talk About... Supercooperators
Show Notes

What can we learn about communication, from trees? Lots! In this episode, we discuss Dr. Suzanne Simard’s groundbreaking research on forests, the New York Times article “The Social Life of Trees” and the ways in which parents can raise children to see others as potential supercooperators rather than competitors.  Maybe the trees tell us that the secrets to our survival are found below the surface in our need to connect with each other.
