Vox Media Podcast Network

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. Episode... more

  • Unlocking Us

    I have consumed all things Brene Brown since I was a young mom (my oldest now 28). However her episodes with Fr Richard Rohr really resonated and is haunting me. I have re-listened to it and read and re-read the transcripts! This morning I wrote down some of the lines that continue to play through my mind. Thank you for dissecting things into smaller units - so we can focus on big topics ! I love getting granualr and feeling like I’m contributing and LEARNING. Cheers, from Indiana
