Today’s Podcast Recommendation is Unlocking Us with Brené Brown.
I first heard about author Brené Brown when Karen and Georgia (My Favorite Murder) talked about her and her books (and TED talk). Then right when the pandemic hit, she put out a podcast. So of course, I needed to listen.
According to Wikipedia she: “is an American professor, lecturer, author, and podcast host. Brown holds the Huffington Foundation’s Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work and is a visiting professor in management at McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.”
She interviews some amazing people. I haven’t heard all the episodes, but the ones I have are really informative and insightful. She’s a good interviewer (though a little over the top fan-girling at times), but she asks good questions coming from a place of knowledge yet willingness to learn more.
The one with Joe Biden, if you voted for him you’ll feel better about your vote. If you didn’t, I think you’ll feel better about him winning.
I’d say you will learn something from each episode. Even on topics that you thought you knew.
I think many of us need to explore things that are outside our bubble because really our bubbles are bigger than we know, and it’s our responsibility as citizens of the world, to know as much as possible.
Maybe that’s just my opinion, but if we all take time to learn and care about others, the world would definitely be a better place.
Some of my favorite episodes:
with Joe Biden on Empathy, Unity, and Courage
with Laverne Cox on Transgender Representation, Advocacy + the Power of Love
with Ibram X. Kendi on How to be an Antiracist
