Description

I’ve spent over 20 years studying the emotions and experiences that bring meaning and purpose to our lives, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s this: We are hardwired for connection, and connecting requires courage, vulnerability, and conversation. I want this to be a podcast that’s real, unpolished, honest, and reflects both the magic and the messiness of what it means to be human. Episodes will include conversations with the people who are teaching me, challenging me, confusing me, or maybe even ticking me off a little. I'll also have direct conversations with you about what I’m learning from new research, and we'll do some episodes dedicated to answering your questions. We don’t have to do life alone. We were never meant to.

We have collectively hit weary. This is especially true for the brave folks on the front lines of this pandemic and for the people who love and support them. And, it’s also true for all of us. In this episode, I talk about strategies for falling apart, staying connected + kind, and giving ourselves permission to feel hard things.
Strap yourselves in! In this episode, I talk to my dear friend and sister Cheetah, Glennon – author of the New York Times #1 bestseller, Untamed. This is an honest conversation about walking away from the lifelong training that keeps us small, quiet, and afraid, and embracing our wild, brave hearts. Glennon is the author of two #1 New York times bestsellers – Untamed and Love Warrior. She’s the author of the New York Times bestseller, Carry On, Warrior, an activist, and the founder of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has revolutionized grassroots philanthropy – raising over $25 Million for women, families and children in crisis. She lives in Florida with her wife and three children.
Tarana is a good friend and one of my favorite people on earth. She has been working at the intersection of racial justice and gender equity for nearly three decades, and she started the “Me Too” Movement in 2006.  In 2017, when the #metoo hashtag went viral, Tarana emerged as a global leader in the evolving conversation around sexual violence. In this episode we talk about how her theory of “empowerment through empathy” is changing the way the world thinks and talks about sexual violence, consent, and social justice. AND, we also talk/cry/laugh about falling in love, running as fast as we can from love, and the perils of sharing a bathroom with the guys we love.

The first Unlocking Us podcast is here! Along with the excitement of sending this into the world, I’m feeling equal doses of fear, awkwardness, and vulnerability. In this episode I talk about my strategy for staying in tough first times versus tapping out and shutting down. When we get to the point that we only do things that we’re already good at doing, we stop growing. And truly living.

These are so wonderful - learning empathy for self and others, an invitation to connection that supercedes social distancing, and a spark of hope are all very much needed.... Thank you! 💜

This was SO SO powerful and uplifting!!! I am curious tho if you can recommend a book or author that speaks directly to men overcoming the ideals placed on THEM in this society. I have a Male friend who is trying to do that as well and we talk about it often. I will share this with him because I think he'll be able to see the connection, but just curious if there are things specifically directed to men in this arena? I am so grateful for you! Thank you!

Followed you and your work for past 10 years. Your incite and candid connection with us all has been a huge help in helping me in some immense life threatening challenges. Thank you for your persistent effort. Thank you is not enough. Thank you for baring your soul and then showing me how you pick your soul up, dust it off and still leave it bared and brave.

Brene this was very helpful! Totally relatable!! I liked how you spoke in such a linear, concise and relatable way to deal with FFT's. As a result, taking notes was easy to do. I look forward to your future interviews! And hearing the ADs you love!!! Thank you!

Great show. My son just saw Tarana speak at his college here in Minnesota. Tarana's explanation that 2 or 3 truths can exist simultaneousy gives a tool of words I can share with him that gives us a platform for having more meaningful discussion. I'm now following her on FB, Twitter & Instagram. #WithGratitude 💜 PS. Brene I was part of #OLCBreneBrown and often revisit my journal. Thank you! 🤗

Thank you for this at the exact moment I needed it. I've been keeping busy and just pushing aside my feelings during this fft pandemic for the sake of my family. You made me laugh and cry and feel ok about where I am in this process and let me know that I am not alone in my feelings.

Hi Brene!! I feel like I know you, thanks to your amazing gift of connection with stories. I'm so glad that you decided to start a podcast. Your work has helped me so much to address the blocks in my life (I too am not a fan of vulnerability). Way to conquer your FFT, I am totally here for it!
