Courage Under the Stars with Michael Vieyra

Courage Under the Stars with Michael Vieyra

Vulnerable conversations with interesting people…in a darkened room. DESCRIPTION: We all tend to be a little more truthful in the dark. Vulnerable even. Think about the great talks you’ve had lying beneath the stars. Or even just sitting around the campfire. I’m looking for that kind of honesty from me and my guests as we chill in the dark. And I wont settle for any bullshit. …Unless it’s funny.
