The Arthur Brooks Show

Season 2, Episode 1: Romantic entrepreneurship

Taking a risk for love – this is ‘romantic entrepreneurship.’ And these days, there’s a lot less of it. Arthur talks about generational differences in romantic risk-taking, our preoccupation with emotional safety, and the benefits of taking risks with your heart, even when things don’t work out. Featuring conversations with Arthur’s wife Ester Munt-Brooks, Romel Nicholas, and San Diego State University psychology professor Jean Twenge.
