This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...

Jaimal Yogis is the author of the book The Fear Project: What Our Most Primal Emotion Taught Me About Survival, Success, Surfing . . . and Love. In it he takes an experiential approach to getting over some of his own fears, by confronting them head on. He tells stories of swimming with sharks, forcing himself to do public presentations, and surfing giant waves. Along the way, he also spoke with researchers about the science behind our fears.
