In today’s episode, I shine a light on energy vampires – those people who draw energy from  draining us of ours.


My definition of an energy vampire is someone who, whether they know it or not, is invested in behaving in a way that is potentially parasitical to others.

I discuss when this is a useful term, and when it is not…and even if we should replace the phrase with a different one altogether.

I talk about…

When energy vampires’ version of generosity/pleasantness etc is just PR to take you off your guard.

What the parasite radar is

How this term gives the person you are referring to far too much power
