Show Notes

Shame. It’s a powerful tool for socialization and the main strategy culture uses to keep us in its little box. In this episode of Bewildered, Marty and Ro dissect the ways we can be shamed and how we can move away from that into what feels true for ourselves.

They share Brené Brown’s spot-on definition of what shame is and dive into the science of why we feel compelled to change our behavior whenever we are shamed. (Hint: It’s all about the amygdala, folks.)

We all have those areas in life where we’re vulnerable to shame, but we also have areas where we can never be shamed. Marty and Ro talk about some of theirs—as well as the powerful turning point in Martha’s life where she absolutely refused to be shamed.

Listen in to this illuminating episode for insights and exercises to help you stand up to the shaming Greek chorus of the culture (or the one in your own head), return to your wild truth, and become unshamable.

Also in this episode: 

  • Marty’s “literally true” gas theory
  • Ro’s cupholder apocalypse
