For 12 years, Frank Warren has been mailed over 1 million secrets on postcards from people on every continent. His website, PostSecret.com has led him to become the most trusted listener of secrets in the world. Frank joins Neil and Gabby in The Truth Barrel to share the lessons he has learned about the secrets that people keep, what they reveal about us, and whether or not it’s true that we’re as sick as our secrets.
In this episode, you’ll learn…
- How Frank saved the life of someone on the verge of suicide.
- What is a secret, when should you reveal it, and how it will help you and others.
- How to overcome the shame of revealing a personal secret or confession.
- Why the safest places might be the least comfortable places to share your secrets.
- The best way for parents to learn their children’s private lives and whether they should.
- The qualities you need to receive someone else’s secrets.
- How Neil gets his interview subjects to open up so much.
- And the most common secret Frank has read out of 1 million secrets (you’ll never guess).
Frank has granted us permission to share here on the blog the collection of secrets he brought into The Truth Barrel.
And these are the unmarked steel containers that Frank uses to transport secrets from PostSecret event to PostSecret event around the world. He said, “transporting people’s secrets in just a folder or floating in a backpack would be disrespectful.”
