Sarcasm was famously described by Oscar Wilde as the lowest form of wit, but the highest form of intelligence.

While the intention behind sarcasm might often be lighthearted, its effects can be more severe, especially if you’re in a position of authority over the recipient.

In MLP 089, we welcome back Lyle Benson, an Associate Professor from Macewan who visited the podcast in episodes MLP 082 and MLP 097.  He is here to explain to us why sarcasm is more hurtful than most of us realize and why we should strive to cut it out our discussions.
