Dr. Brad Blanton is a world-renowned American psychotherapist, and the author of the self-help classic Radical Honesty.

Radical Honesty by Brad Blanton is one of the most impactful, occasionally jarring, and important books I’ve read over the past few years.

Dr. Blanton’s central message is that dishonesty, ranging from “white lies” to major omissions, is the cause of most of our psychological problems, and almost all of society’s problems. Brad stresses the incredible liberation of being more honest with yourself and the people around you, resulting in better relationships, a better career, and an all-around happier, more peaceful life.

Brad is an interviewer’s dream

–a man publicly committed to “radical honesty.”

In this podcast Brad and I talk about sex and jealousy, drugs, the humble origins of Radical Honesty, the challenge of co-habiting and intimate relationships (open and otherwise), his involvement in the anti-Vietnam War movement, the lessons he learned working in a mental institution, his run for the Senate as a left-leaning independent in a red state, his many decades working as a psychotherapist, and much more. Brad Blanton was just as much of a straight-shooter, not to mention funny and engaging as I anticipated.

It’s important to stress that “Radical Honesty” is a nuanced philosophy and practice. If you’d like more information about Brad and his work, please sign up for his free mini-course at radicalhonesty.com.

    • Brad’s TEDx talk, “How to get over shit and be happy”

    • I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with
      your site. It looks like some of the written text within your content
      are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let
      me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be
      a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.

      An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your web page.

      I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this. https://catchthemes.com/support-forum/users/buyviews/

      Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
