We have our ideas about respect and we have not been shy about sharing them. We do, however, acknowledge that there are people who have better ideas than us. Courtney Macavinta is co-founder and CEO of The Respect Institute and has had a long list of accomplishments while helping the rest of us live in a more respectful society. We discuss the difficulty of defining respect, “respect basics”, presidential political respect (or lack thereof), and how the media has shown a loss of respect for the truth.
