How to run towards the danger with Sarah Polley
How can we confront our own toughest life experiences? And is it wise to do so? In her new book, Run Towards The Danger, filmmaker, writer and activist Sarah Polley examines her own scariest life experiences.
In this episode, Sarah and I talk about how telling your stories may change your relationships, the radical transformation of motherhood, and having support in place before diving into your past. There’s some heavy stuff in this episode but it’s not without laughs.
