Most people think that bravery means being fearless. But here's the thing--nobody is fearless. Fear is part of our biology, and we are all thriving even though we are inherently afraid. Here at The Brave Ones, we believe that being brave means being terrified to do something, but doing it anyway. Each week, we invite a brave person onto our podcast to tell their story. With each brave story, our hope is that our listeners will see how possible it is to be brave and realize how they are already brave themselves.
Olivia McLeod has been interested in the conversations that move us for a long time, so she wanted to start one here. When she isn't doing the things she's terrified to do, she's reading memoirs and listening to other people's podcasts.
