5. Dominant Stories with Jess Weiner

Dominant stories is a series of conversations that recovers and rewrites the stories we have been told about our bodies, our beauty, our creativity and our identities. For example, does your self-talk sound like, “I’m not good enough, pretty enough, or thin enough?” How about, “I can’t do this” or “I’m not worthy?” These are what the cultural expert and host Jess Weiner calls our Dominant Stories, the stories we tell about ourselves, whether they are true or not. This show stems from Weiner’s personal and professional mission to help people challenge the external and internal voices that hold them back from living the life they desire and deserve.
