This podcast is about sharing ideas, insights, research and experiences around emotion in the workplace. Since I decided to start the podcast I wanted to get this guest on the series. She is the co-author of one of my most thumbed book (details below) and someone I have interacted with on Twitter for a while. How we interact is a fascinating thing to me and in this episode on Everyday Talk we get into:

    Does emotion shape talk or does talk shape emotion? Pragmatic Markers - how speakers indicate things to each other, e.g. turn taking Politeness rules - the ways we adapt communication to be considerate of others The floor - what you have when speaking News announcements - when people share new in talk Face - parts of yout identity that you negotiate in interaction Turn taking - how conversation passes from one to another Repairs - when you fix misunderstandings in talk Deception - how we can deceive in talk Stance - the ways people involved in interaction indicate their thoughts and feelings on things
