Monocycle: Episode 9, Vulnerability
On vulnerability and the self in progress

Often when you’re given advice, that wisdom is provided reflectively: I’ve been through a journey, I’m out of a journey, and here are the findings. And that’s great — the model makes sense, but isn’t there some value, too, in learning from experience while said experience is in motion?
This week’s episode tackles vulnerability using the shadow of infertility and the subsequent numbing mechanisms we assume to survive as a cheap literary device.
I would apologize in advance for the abundant use of several dim words, but I’m trying to stop being so self-deprecating. So take a listen and then let’s chat.
