Radio Episode #755: What We Fear Part 2 (Playlist & Player)

We kicked off a short mini-series last week with a collection of alt-rock and punk tunes that dive into aspects of fear that you and I have struggled with. From social issues, to bullying to relationships, we pick up where we left off last time with a few select tunes from punk bands like Screeching Weasel (with “Cool Kids” illustrating a fear of exclusion and social anxiety), MxPx (with “Drowning” which paints a vivid picture of what it feels like to experience pain and rejection), Nirvana (whose classic “Been A Son” was before its time in confronting sexism and macho attitudes), and more.

Fear is a big subject that I’m going to keep talking about because it causes us so much pain and loss of opportunity to live a fruitful life. If you missed it, go grab this great post about overcoming fear. And sign up to grab my latest book that addresses this subject in detail while also helping you to overcome your worst fears and biggest obstacles. Talk soon!
