Cadence13, a leading premium podcast company, today announced the launch of Unlocking Us—the podcast hosted by internationally renowned researcher and five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Brené Brown.
In the debut episode of the weekly podcast, initially slated to launch at South by SouthwestÒ (SXSWÒ), Brown reminds us of the emotional fortitude needed when tackling what she calls F*CKING First Times or FFTs, and offers a strategy for staying in tough first times versus tapping out and shutting down in the face of fear, discomfort, and vulnerability.
Unlocking Us launches today, March 20th, 2020, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.COM and everywhere podcasts are available. Listen to the first episode and subscribe to the series here: https://apple.co/unlockingus.
New episodes of Unlocking Us will be available on March 23, March 24, and March 25, 2020. Beginning April 1, 2020, new episodes will be available on Wednesdays. In addition, there will be Unlocking Us bonus episodes.
The Unlocking Us schedule includes:
- Friday, March 20th: Brené Brown on FFTs

“Launching this podcast with Cadence13 feels like a dream come true for me!” said Brown. “As someone who values conversation, curiosity, and connection – the Unlocking Us podcast is the motherlode.”
“We’ve all been so excited to launch Brené’s podcast, and it couldn’t be coming at a more important time for the world to hear,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13.
Unlocking Us will feature Brown in conversations that unlock the deeply human part of who we are, so we can live, love, parent, and lead with more courage and heart. Brown and her guests will unpack and explore the ideas, stories, experiences, books, films, and music that reflect the universal experiences of being human, from the bravest moments to the most brokenhearted.
Along with topic-based conversations with guests, the podcast series will also feature episodes with Brown teaching directly to the listeners, audience Q+A shows, and live events, all featuring the trademark mix of research, storytelling, and no BS style that has made Brown a cultural phenomenon.
Brown has one of the five most-viewed TED Talks in the world and recently premiered her first Netflix special to critical acclaim.
Brown’s work, studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, has struck a chord with millions of people globally and made her one of the most sought-after speakers in the world—working with everyone from Fortune 50 CEOs, military leaders, and elite athletes, to activists, creatives, and helping professionals.
