[GeekyCast] Are You Empathic?

It's been a light day and I've put my creative writing efforts on hold in favor of reading all these books I've been buying and finally getting around to posting reviews about them. Just this week I've talked about Train Man and Interworld, both pretty good books.

Today I wanted to discuss empathy and whether or not it's real and such. I've been thinking a lot about this subject in recent days and am now wanting to get the ideas of concepts from you, the readers and listeners to see if we can't generate a genuine discussion.

What do you think? Do empathic people exist? Are you one of them?
