Understanding Fear What are you so afraid of? And why? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll move beyond the trivial "gotcha" scares of Halloween to talk about what's happening in our brains when we're fearful. How do our fears change throughout our lives? We used to tremble at the monster in the closet. Now it might be fear of flying, the dreaded pink slip, the prospect of illness, or outliving your savings. The science, psychology and management of fear... Monday at 9 on 90.3.
