When was the last time you changed your mind? If you’re anything like the rest of the population, probably not very recently. Stephanie Lepp’s podcast, Reckonings, explores why that is; through interviews with people who have gone through transformative changes, she’s found a list of commonalities begin to emerge.
Our worldviews, Stephanie explains, are intimately tied up with our identities: everything from the way we talk and dress to the communities we’re exposed to. Changing one belief seems to require a shift in the entire ecosystem. Those who have successfully broken free? They recognize that believing in A doesn’t necessitate believing in B and C: we can pick and choose based on an internal moral compass.
We’re thrilled to end season two with Stephanie. At Breakthrough, we’re eager to stray from a mindset that’s hostile toward mistakes and mind flips. We strive to create more spaces for growth, for critical self-reflection, and we hope this podcast takes one step toward that more nurturing culture. As always, let us know what you’re thinking (we’re @TheBTI on Twitter) and who you hope to hear in season three. We’ll be back soon.
