Three Words Podcast
A bite-sized podcast about choices.
Write 'Em Up
What if submitting a formal report was not an act of cowardice but of courage, not an act of retaliation but of reconciliation? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Justin Brown encourage us to lean into difficult conversations and offer an alternative for when we fail to speak up.
Love The Earth
Environmental justice is about so much more than pandas and pollution. This week, Martha Chandran-Dickerson joins Dr. Michael Brown as she broadens our vision and deepens our understanding of the connection between daily decisions, climate change, and vulnerable communities.
Compassion Changes Everything
How do we respond to the fear and frustration at the intersection of the personal and political? Prompted by the Supreme Court’s draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Dr. Michael Brown and Amy Seiffert share how a commitment to compassion in the face of complexity can deepen our connection to others.
Honor Your Commitments
Each and every one of us have made a promise that we couldn't keep. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dan Costello offer their insights on how to do what we say we will do and how to honorably call it quits.
Stop Chasing Happiness
Positive feelings and emotions are nice, but they shouldn’t be our greatest goal in life. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and counselor Steve Rieske count the cost of a life devoted to pursuing the wrong thing.
Be The Hero
We are a culture obsessed with heroes, so it is all the more devastating that heroes are so hard to find. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and activist Anthony King reflect on the shared characteristics of the world’s most courageous individuals.
Live With Intention
Life is far too short to live on accident. This week, corporate executive Dan Costello shares his insights about Dr. Michael Brown’s favorite word.
Controlling Isn't Caring
Some of the most difficult people to love are those who are most controlling, and this is why controlling people so often feel unloved. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and clinical counselor Steve Rieske discuss tense relationships, hostile workplaces, and unsafe households.
Start A Journal
Emotions and devotions, prayers and gratitude, food and fitness… the possibilities are endless! This week, Dr. Michael Brown and business executive Dan Costello contemplate their shared conviction that keeping a journal is for everyone.
Nobody Notices Normal
By definition, most of us will live average lives… but it doesn’t have to be that way. This week, Dr. Michael Brown contemplates how he would look with a ‘man bun’ as Dr. Tyler Schwanz inspires us all to live exceptional and extraordinary lives.
Accept The Consequences
Feeling tired lately? Crippled by debt? Did you fail yet another test? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Nick Gillispie reiterate the power of our choices when we find ourselves stuck, stale, or struggling.
Verdicts Don't Heal
“Guilty on all three counts.” The conviction of Derek Chauvin created a complex mix of emotions for communities who have been collectively holding their breaths since last May. This week, Dr. Michael Brown and racial justice activist Anthony King reflect on the legacy of George Floyd and consider how much more work is required before justice becomes a reality.
