University of Texas-Austin President Greg Fenves scored big points when the McCombs School of Business landed its newest visiting professor, internationally acclaimed author and speaker Brené Brown.

On Sunday, Brown was interviewed on vulnerability and courage by Bill Whitaker on "60 Minutes." The clip featured a cruise near the Hula Hut on Lake Austin in a boat captained by Brown's husband Steve Alley.


"We are neuro-biologically hardwired to be in connection with other people," said Brown, who has a huge social media following and a new podcast called "Unlocking Us." She launched the podcast in mid-March as the coronavirus epidemic took hold.

"I'm not sure about you," said Brown, "but this is my first effing global pandemic."

Mine too, and I've been around a couple decades longer than Brown.

Feeling vulnerable in Austin! Still working with Brené on the courage part.
