Podcast

Exercise Physiologist, Women's Health Specialist and University Lecturer Unna Goldsworthy is back and this time we discuss the challenge of giving and receiving feedback in a constructive, productive and empowering way (easier said than done), tailoring communication to suit the individual, how our thinking and perspectives change over time, the power of instinct and intuition when dealing with others, giving without expecting anything in return, helping others see (and tap into) their potential and lots more.

Sometimes I'm like a podcasting version of a Labrador puppy. All over the place. Trying to explore everything all at once. So many things to do (and chew on), so little time. My intention going into this totally unscripted and mostly unplanned solo episode, was to talk about the futility and potential harm of arguing. Not the healthy intellectual, respectful kind of debate but rather, the unhealthy, emotional screaming at each other (type of) exchange. Well, I did that, but I also went off on seventeen different tangents and got quite deep and philosophical towards the end. Somebody asked me yesterday if I'm scared of running out of things to talk about on the show. I told them, I'm scared of not having enough time to scratch the surface. Enjoy.

Patrick is back talking all things tech, human optimisation, virtual reality, the Beatles 'new' Al assisted song, why we should start recharging batteries used in the home, how China is stopping its drivers from falling asleep at the wheel (it's weird), how 'Caspering' is replacing ghosting (don't ask) and lots more. Enjoy.

There was a moment in this episode when the entire conversation came to an abrupt standstill because Patrick revealed something the world didn't need to know. I was literally left to fill dead air because he and Tiff lost their collective shit and left me hanging. Nonetheless, we didn't edit it out and it's definitely one of the funnier moments in TYP history. If you want to see the actual video footage, you can find it on my Insta. Apart from that shenanigans, we spoke about why EV's (electric vehicles) may not be the saviour we imagined, the potential therapeutic benefits for kids with ADHD using old-school typewriters, diesel generators powering electric charging stations in the outback (not even joking), a new fibre that can optionally cool or heat the wearer, a new treatment for hoarders, dating apps and ghosting, self-flying air-taxis (zero chance I'm getting in that), the one time Patrick kissed a girl and lots more.

I probably don’t need explain what this episode is about, so… enjoy!

If you want to create better interactions, and interpersonal outcomes with others (friends, family, strangers), I think you will enjoy this chat. How do we create meaningful connection with an audience of 1 or a 100? How do we share our thoughts, ideas and messages in a way which resonates with the person or persons with whom we're trying to connect? What does 'reading the room' mean? What is a 'warm audience'? And a cold one? Can we 'warm up' a cold audience? In this episode, Tiff and I discuss the myriad of variables that influence the quality (and outcomes) of our communication experiences. We also talk about the propensity we humans have to hate being wrong. Especially when our identity is intertwined with a certain idea, belief or practice. Enjoy.

In this brief solo episode, I discuss the (bad) idea of trying to change people. Good intentions don't always equal good outcomes, especially when the person you're trying to change hasn't sought your advice, feedback, input or help. In fact, in many cases, trying to coerce (guilt, threaten, leverage) a person to change will create more disconnection than connection, and more resentment than compliance. I've encouraged, supported and educated lots of people, but l've never changed anyone. If they did change for the better, they did the work, not me.

I hope my mum doesn't listen to this episode. Like, reaaaally, hope. Wait till you discover what tellydildonics are. And why people are 'marrying' robots. And how someone is Perth can use technology to give someone in Sydney (or New York) an orgasm. Again, don't listen Mary. Or Ron. People have long told machines what to do by pushing buttons. Now, with advances in technology, machines are pushing our buttons. In 'Artificial Intimacy' (my guest's book), evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks takes us from the origins of human behaviour to the latest in artificially intelligent technologies, providing a fresh and original view of the very near future of human relationships. Sex dollbots, digital lovers, virtual friends and algorithmic matchmakers help us manage our feelings in a world of cognitive overload. Apps can sense when users are falling in love, when they are fighting, and when they are likely to break up. These machines, the 'artificial intimacies', already learn how to exploit human social needs. And they are getting better and faster at what they do. So how will humanity's future unfold as our ancient, evolved minds and old-fashioned cultures collide with twenty-first-century technology?

In 1,300 episodes, we’ve never had a conversation about respect. Not sure why, because it’s something we all want and value (nobody wants to be disrespected). I want it. So do you. But what are the variables, factors and determinants? Well, here are my thoughts on the thing we all want. Enjoy

On some level we all want to be different, do different and create different. Change is a multi-dimensional process (psychological, emotional, physical, practical) and in this mini workshop I do a deep dive on the very present challenge of creating (and sustaining) positive change in our lives.

In this freestyle chat with Tiff, we talk about the reason behind our goals (the 'why' behind our 'what'), the peaks and troughs of my academic journey, whether it's a good or bad idea to niche in business, destination-disappointment (why we're not always happy or content when we achieve our goals), the challenge of building rapport, changing careers later in life, how our social group shapes our thinking and behaviour and lots more. Enjoy.
