On this morning’s edition of the Daily Hope Check-in Facebook Live video, I shared my seven favourite podcasts – hosts and guests that have in equal parts uplifted me, inspired me, educated me and humbled me. In these uncertain times, especially when most of our media and conversations are overrun with coronavirus and COVID-19, let these be your escape into something different.
Something more positive.
Something for your future.
And something to enrich your present while you ride out this storm.
Brene Brown’s Unlocking Us
DESCRIPTION FROM APPLE PODCAST: 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.
