This episode of The Walk Away Podcast discusses the difference between courage and bravado through the lens of a quote from the movie Glass Onion. Stephen and Riley argue that true courage involves demonstrating wisdom, temperance, and discipline when faced with difficult situations, while bravado often involves speaking recklessly without considering whether one's words are true or good.
