Researcher and #1 New York Times best-selling author Brené Brown unpacks and explores the ideas, stories, experiences, books, films, and music that reflect the universal experiences of being human, from the bravest moments to the most brokenhearted, in the enlightening podcast series, “Unlocking Us With Brené Brown”.

In this particular episode, Brené talks to Dr. Vivek Murthy, a physician and the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, about loneliness and the physical and emotional toll that social disconnection takes on us. They also discuss his new book, Together, and what it takes for each of us to tilt the world toward love and connection.

Dr. Murthy admits that traditional medicine doesn’t always address internal emotions, and gives advice on defeating loneliness:

“Relation is the foundation of dialogue.”
