Hi, everyone, I'm Bernie Brown. Welcome to the Unlocking US podcast. 12 years ago, I bought a used microphone. I hooked it up to my laptop and recorded a podcast on empathy and shame. It was very DIY from my kitchen table, but I fell in love with podcasting. It was intimate, raw and most importantly, it gave me a way to connect directly with you. Well, here it is a dozen years later and I'm coming back with unlocking us.
I've given a lot of thought to how I want to spend this next decade. And one thing I know for sure is that I want to have more meaningful conversations, conversations that help us unlock the deeply human part of who we are. Together, we can explore ideas, stories, experiences, research, books, films, music, anything that reflects the universal experiences of being human from the bravest moments to the most broken hearted. Some episodes of the new podcast will be conversations with the people who are teaching me, challenging me, confusing me, and maybe even ticking me off a little bit.
Some days I'll just talk directly to you about what I'm learning and how it's changing the way I think and show up. We'll also have a way for you to send me questions for ask me anything episodes. And at some point I'm going to hit the road and do some live shows to. Episodes of Unlocking US will drop every Wednesday, you can find me wherever you normally listen to your podcast. Here's the thing. I want to live, love, parent and lead with more courage and more heart.
And that requires conversations that help us learn, grow and challenge what we think we know about ourselves, about each other and about this world. You can subscribe now, invite your friends. And I really cannot wait to have these conversations with you.
