Netflix Is Bringing Brené Brown To Its Streaming Service And Her Announcement Is Thrilling

Brené Brown is a social scientist, a professor at the University of Houston and one of the most-viewed Ted Talk speakers. Netflix has recognized the widespread potential of Brown’s ‘power of vulnerability’ and will be hosting an hour-long special in April this year.


“I’m breaking some boundaries over at Netflix,” Brené made the thrillful announcement over on Instagram.

She’s perhaps most famous for her TEDTalks video back in 2011, as it accumulated over 9 million views on YouTube.

“Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love.”
