3.15 - Season 3 Finale: 5 Most Durable Moments
Hello, and welcome to the season 3 Bri Books finale!
That’s right. 15 episodes later, season 3 is done and dusted. We’ve recorded 43 (!!!) episodes of this podcast since the beginning, and I’m so grateful to have earned your attention.
Here’s a look at the top 5 most “durable” moments from Bri Books season 3. These are the moments that made me go, “Mmph!” while recoding, and the ones that made me smile ear-to-ear while I listened back after putting each episode out into the world.
What made the moment durable: Shauna’s disclosure on how her first job post-college helped her exit the “student’ mentality, and enter the “student-learner” mindset.
#4: Wesley Lowery on humanizing the protestor in “They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice Movement.”
What made the moment durable: Wesley’s book was one of the most enduring pieces of writing I’ve read to date. Wesley’s commentary on humanizing the symbolism encapsulated in protest was a KEY component to me understanding how protest operates as a form of public service. Also, I can’t wait to read “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” by Patrisse Kahn-Cullors and Asha Bandele.
What made the moment durable: Paulana guest-curated an episode about the book "Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence" by Daniel Goleman, where we discussed how to cultivate the muscle of focus. Hint: Lots of reps required.
#2: Hiwote Getaneh suggests “Designing Your Life"
What made the moment durable: Host of "Depth & Candor" podcast Hiwote Getaneh stressed the book’s message that your life can be successful in many ways—your only job is the choose the direction you want to go in, and go in that direction with no stress about the things you’re leaving behind.
#1: Tiffany Dufu on her book “Drop The Ball,” and releasing yourself from internal pressures
What made the moment durable: ”What makes this moment the most durable is Tiffany’s insistence that what matters is knowing the pressures you’re putting on yourself, and the ones you’re allowing others to put on you.
