752: Kristen Ulmer- The Art of Fear

In this episode, Sal, Adam & Justin interview Kristen Ulmer, a former world champion big mountain downhill skier and author of The Art of Fear. Most people have been taught that fear is something to be overcome or conquered. Kristen lays out compelling reasons why, rather than taking an adversarial position with fear, that you should make “friends” with fear.
