LISTEN: A conversation with Brené Brown

This week our podcast is with Brené Brown, the popular TED speaker and author who studies emotions like courage, shame and vulnerability. Her newest book is Rising Strong, which explores how we get ourselves past falls and setbacks to emerge stronger on the other side. In this podcast, she shares advice on how to do that, as well as how to stop comparing ourselves against others, how to break our cycles of negative thinking and why regrets can be constructive.
