Spotify and Parcast have announced a partnership with New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown. On October 19, Brown’s new podcast Dare to Lead will premiere exclusively on Spotify. Then in January Brown’s podcast “Unlocking Us” will move over to Spotify as part of the new deal.
“Dare to Lead” will explore the four skill sets of courage that are the foundation of Brown’s bestselling book of the same name, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists and has become the ultimate courage-building playbook for leaders at all levels. The weekly series will feature conversations with change-catalysts, culture-shifters and more than a few troublemakers who are innovating, creating, and daring to lead.
Brown says she partnered with Spotify because she wanted a home for both podcasts. “And I wanted it to be a place that felt collaborative, creative, adventurous, and full of music – like my actual house, where you’d find guitar stands in every room and framed pictures of everyone from Willie Nelson and Aretha Franklin to Freddy Fender, Mick Jagger, and Angus Young hanging on my walls. It was also very important to me to build a podcast home where people could continue to listen for free.”
