Have you ever experienced the chills of fear, the adrenaline rush, a pounding heartbeat? We all have, in this episode, let’s dissect fear. We talk about how fear works as a keen sense of intuition, warning us of dangers and urging caution.

We navigate through the thin line that separates bravery from foolishness, drawing inspiration from the incredible Alex Honnold, the renowned free climber who uses fear as a tool, not an obstacle. But it’s not just about reckless daredevils – we also explore how fear informs decisions in the ordinary, everyday aspects of life. For instance, how the responsibility of parenthood can shape our risk-taking abilities.

We also take a fascinating detour to discuss the impact of internet culture on real-world human behavior, and how respect can be commanded through a healthy dose of fear. We’ll also talk through the role of mantras like ‘check yourself before you wreck yourself’, and how the shift from stress to “stoke” can morph fear into excitement.
