Empathy and Eyebrows
Between her time as a radio host, television figure, and social media personality, Danni Starr has never been afraid of sharing her opinion. In this book, she takes you on a whirlwind tour of her own life and beyond, with plenty of personal perspective and #BlackGirlMagic to go around.
From her struggles with workplace discrimination to the wild Rumspringa of her post-divorce months, from postpartum depression to the joys of friendship, Danni tells her story with honesty, humor, and moxie to spare. Despite its lows, life has given her plenty of joys—good friends, an empathetic gift, lovely daughters, and a great pair of eyebrows. They’re unorthodox weapons to be sure, but with them she’s faced down everything that’s been thrown at her and forged a wicked set of survival skills in the process!
Danni StarR Podcast
Storytelling is such an amazing thing. I love to make people laugh or feel by telling stories. Stories connect us because we all have a story to tell. Our stories may not always be the same but when we share our truth, it gives others permission to do the same. Story telling is healing, it’s empowering, it’s necessary.
I want to talk about things. Real things. Things that matter. Relationships, connections, mental health, parenthood, addiction, infidelity, self- awareness, self- destruction, forgiveness, positivity, protecting your energy.
Who do you want to be? What do you fear? Are you over love? When is the last time you cried and why? Do You feel bad for hurting someone? Can we talk about all the things? In a social media world we are losing the art of human connection. Can we talk? Talk about things that make you feel? What makes you angry? What makes you happy? When’s the last time you scream laughed so hard that real tears fell from your eyes? WHAT. INSPIRES. YOU. Lets talk about that. Real Conversations. Real People. Real Connections. The Empathy and Eyebrows Podcast with Danni Starr.
See Me/Hear Me
I started in radio at the age of 19 in Minneapolis Minnesota. After working in every day part (middays, overnights, afternoons etc.) I worked my way up to doing mornings with the Tony Fly Morning Show.
I spent 8 years in the Minneapolis market. After almost a decade in the Twin Cities, I headed to Washington DC. I’ve been in the DMV for almost 5 years now and it’s become my second home.
Currently you can hear me weekly as host of the Empathy and Eyebrows podcast. You can also catch me breaking news and giving you tips, tricks and what’s trending on the TLC network as host of TLCme Now.
Media has been a huge part of my life. In fact, I have spent my entire adult life on the air. I know that media will continue to be a big part of who I am but I am also excited for my new journey. I am marrying my two passions – entertainment and mental health advocacy – and have joined the This is My Brave team as assistant Program Manager. I am beyond excited for this journey and can’t wait to share it with you.

I met my friend at Starbuck’s. I started rattling my thoughts off. They didn’t even seem that coherent. I was talking very fast, not unlike me, but as I was talking I was also searching. Searching for it to make sense. Prior to meeting up with her I had spent the past few hours really […]
This isn’t really easy to talk about, but it’s necessary. Maybe it will help someone who is hurting feel like they are not alone. Maybe it will help someone who loves someone who struggles with mental illness be a better ally. Maybe I just need to put it into writing so I protect myself. A […]
I’ve heard that time heals everything. And when people say it, I bet they WANT to believe it. The idea of feeling pain forever doesn’t sound appealing at all. Nobody’s signing up for that. Hurt shifts, bends, lays dormant and subsides, but does it really ever go away? I don’t think about my grandpa every […]
I hope you read this in its entirety. I hope you read it with an open mind and heart. I hope you try to see another perspective than your own. I hope you feel things, things that inspire you, empower you and maybe even enrage you… because these are the feelings we need to feel […]
I’ve talked about my mental health struggles for years, but this is one of those stories that I haven’t told in great detail and now, it’s time. A few years ago after the birth of my youngest daughter, postpartum anxiety had its way with me. Intrusive thoughts were rampant in my mind and my body […]
