Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous

By Emily Ann Peterson

A podcast and community for creatives looking for an extra dose of bravery to get out there and do what they're called to do. Together we expose the threads of heroism behind the stories and people we love most. Singer/songwriter, teaching artist, and creative entrepreneur, Emily Ann Peterson, hosts guests who have stories of brave battles, creative solutions, courageous failures, dream-crushing constraints, knee-knocking fears, and innovative genius. Every week features the authors, musicians, artists, business owners, and other professionals who courageously pour themselves into their work. Every guest will flaunt the obstacles battled and the bravery required for their quiet victories and loud failures. Every episode holds conversations that unclothe the fears befriended (or banished) along our stories of bravery, quiet heroism, and all-out gutsy-ness. Some episodes will open the (sometimes) Pandora's box of constraints and dream-crushing realities. Perhaps by listening to others search for and find their bravery, we will all find our own. For that is what we need most: to know we are not alone.
