Braving the Wilderness


Episode description

When we leave our comfort zones, something happens. If we agree to take on something impossible, we are changed by it. Meet Dyan deNapoli, otherwise known as “The Penguin Lady,” and hear her story about the Treasure oil spill, the biggest challenge she's ever faced, and how it changed her life. Dyan takes us back to the icy shelf of Antarctica to a field of penguins. How does your life connect to Antarctica and penguins?

Samantha relates her reading of Brené Brown's Braving the Wilderness to this experience. Original theme music by Gabriel Corindia. Field recordings: Carol Devine. Follow us on Twitter @ThisIsOurPod and buy our Podcast Listening Guide
