Traci Badu is a student of neuroscience who reflects on her field of study in understanding trauma and emotions. In exploring resistance she invites listeners to think about what it means to be themselves and push back against the things that disallow that. The conversation explores the ways in which healing and identity connect, identities both imposed by others and those individually claimed. We talk about relearning how to feel emotions acknowledging what they inform about our experiences and the process of healing that it results in.
