The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Guest host Patrick Sweeney, the Fear Guru, answers the questions: are you hardwired to respond to threats with a fight, flight or freeze reaction? How does that survival instinct affect your decision-making and happiness? In this introductory episode, you’ll find out what the amygdala (a MIG da la) is and how it impacts our life. You’ll also find out if we a courage center to counter-act that fear center and if so how we can access it. This is the first in a series of four mini Spartan Up podcast episodes exploring fear.
