Unlocking Us with Brené Brown


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.

    Can not wait for a well rounded podcast. Never heard of you but loved your trailer. Bring it on girl!!!!
  • Akky726
    Thank you!
    Courage over comfort became my mantra in 2019 - and allowed me the permission to lean into and abide by my core values AND your parenting coaching about “winning is just jumping off the block” was right on time to help me coach my son during his (our) first swim meet! Thank you for being YOU! Looking forward to the podcast!

    Brené marry me!!!
    Haha, jk. But I totally would in a parallel universe! Thanks to you and your books I survived the biggest challenge of my life: Loving who I am, a gay man that was terribly devoted his religion. My life’s been very odd, very incredible and courageous.
  • renokels

    Thank you for being brave!
    Brené, thank you for answering the call to courage! Your commitment to this work is infectious, thank you for walking me home. I look forward to hearing more courageous conversations. Keep shinning your light.
  • KJ FL
    Shame cannot hold on to being spoken!
    Words to live by, cry by, and grow by. Brene is the kind of woman that when her feet hit the floor each morning SHAME says: Oh crap she’s up! Embrace the fear! You are changing my world.

    I can't unhear it...
    I'm excited about this podcast, but ever since my teen pointed out the super high pitched whistle sound that some people/microphones make when saying anything with 'S', I can't ignore it. So I hope Brené's people will read this and get what I *think* he called a 'pop filter', or I might not be able to enjoy all her content!

  • Brittany Blomsterberg
    So grateful for you!
    I absolutely love you, your heart, your vulnerability, your courage, your authenticity, your radiance, your humor, and simply the way you have embraced yourself wholly in your journey! It inspires me to do the same and to have the courage to stand alone to truly belong— still a work in progress, but you have been a guiding light! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can’t wait for this <3
  • SassEgirl
    It will be worth the wait!

  • Gigi in Zim
    This is what the world needs. My only complaint is that e have to wait until March. 2020 is looking so good.
  • Bobbie OB
    Can’t wait!!!!! Wednesday’s are going to be so much more than “hump day”.
    If you think “self help” isn’t for you, but want to recover from shame, judgement, and find a way to relate to your true self and others.. Berne is your person!
  • Wholeheartedmess
    I absolutely love Brene Brown. “Strong back, soft front, wild heart.” The words I now live by.

    nobody better than Brené
    In these massively transformative time, the twenties of the century, there is no one better than BB to brave the wilderness and build empathetic courage with, nobody better to help us say to ourselves, yes it’s scary but we can risk being open and staying human.
