Turns out Tom Noske is kind-of a big deal. Well, he's definitely on the way. Let's go with, big-ish. He's a content creator, commercial filmmaker, endurance athlete, storyteller, entrepreneur, and inspiration for over half a million online followers. He's also a good bloke and I loved meeting him. Among other things, we spoke about problem-solving (one of life's most important skills), creating a brand and online presence, understand the mind and needs of a customer, the psychology of spending and perceived value, navigating life with dyslexia, how he earned over $250,000(AU) last month, training for an Ironman, being hyper-focused, being authentic in a sea of fakes and pretenders, building confidence and competence, and much more.

Enjoy. You'll love him.

Rita Crundwell is the former Comptroller (accounting officer) and Treasurer of Dixon, Illinois (population 15,000), who from 1983 to 2012 committed, what is believed to be the largest municipal fraud in U.S. history, embezzling nearly $90 million (AUS). On this episode of TYP David and I (okay, mainly him) unpack this fascinating story about the poster-girl for Psychopathy. Did I mention $90 f***ing million, while working for the local council!

In this (very) freestyle conversation with our resident Nerd, we chat about the potential reality of a cashless and cardless society; one where body parts are scanned in order to pay for goods and services. We also discuss companies which film us while we shop, why volunteering into our 'senior' years is life-extending and good for our overall health, Elon Musk's re-naming of Twitter (to 'X'), while Bunnings employs a disproportionate number of older workers, how Al might help us lose weight and Patrick bangs on about drones for way longer than necessary (lol).

Enjoy.

David Gillespie wandered back into TYP Central and this time we chatted about work-life balance, universal basic income, the pros and cons of retirement, means testing, eliminating poverty and the government printing money to offset debt!
This episode with money expert Jason Cunningham was not what either of us expected it to be. It was much better. As much as possible (and is practical) I try not to plan the conversations I have with guests but I guess we both thought we’d talk primarily about money, business, career, etc. We didn’t. What transpired was a deep and philosophical about dealing with hard sh*t (which he has been for the last few years), coming out the other side, the lessons we learn along the way and how we change in the middle of it. Enjoy.
Kate Save took her business idea onto Shark Tank (the TV show), found herself a high-profile Business Partner and Coach (Janine Allis) and when the show aired, things went totally crazy in both good and bad ways. Kate is a high-performer who keeps finding a way to succeed. She is an Entrepreneur, Exercise Physiologist, Dietician, Founder and CEO of ‘Be Fit Food’ and in this episode we talk about the numerous peaks, troughs, triumphs, disasters and near misses that have been part of her personal and professional journey over the years. From a somewhat underwhelming and almost-catastrophic beginning in business, Kate and her team are now a multi award-winners, with her products sold in over a thousand outlets around Australia. This is a chat about growing something from the ground-up. Turning a plan into an outcome, a thing in your head into a thing in the world and building a multi-million dollar company in a highly-competitive market. Enjoy.
On day four, we dive into the stuff (our stuff) that needs to be identified, acknowledged, addressed and factored in (the good and bad stuff) if we really want to do different, think different, create different and be different in the new year. Reflecting on current habits, patterns, behaviours, mindsets and outcomes is a crucial part of the learning, growing and doing-better process. 
Samuel Johnson (OAM) is an Actor (TV, film and stage), Gold Logie winner, regular Aussie bloke, co-creator of the charity ‘Love Your Sister’ and money-raising machine, who (to this point in time) has raised more than thirteen millions dollars for cancer research. Mid-way through 2021, Sam was hit by a car, breaking his skull (including his face), fracturing bones in his neck and suffering a significant brain injury. To say his life has an been interesting journey, is an understatement. This conversation went far and wide and I think you’ll enjoy it. I loved it (the chat) and him. Even if he’s not Samuel L. Jackson (in-show joke).
Work for yourself or work for them? It’s a question many of us ask over the course of our working lives. I asked it early on and realised that employee-dom (not a word) wasn’t for me. It’s not bad (of course), just not optimal for me. Subsequently, I’ve been the boss of me for thirty-three years, employed hundreds of people, made a million f*ck-ups, had a million breakdowns and breakthroughs, re-invented myself numerous times, learned lots, forgotten lots, made money, lost money but most of all, I’ve enjoyed (and grown through) all of it. Even the sh*t. Building a business, brand, product and/or service is something people have been asking me about for decades. This podcast is a conversation about that.
This is an interesting chat about the ever-present challenge of businesses wanting to make money, do some good in the world (for the planet and people) and let’s be honest, protect (or enhance) their brand along the way. It’s also about purpose and value driven people building commercial organisations with a primary focus of creating positive and sustainable impact in the world. I’m gonna be honest, until this conversation I didn’t totally understand what social enterprise looked like in practice or in the commercial landscape. In 2013, Kim founded ‘Thankful’, a social enterprise supported by more than 20 years of scientific research. Under her guidance, Thankful’s innovative model merges philanthropy and business to create a positive, sustainable, and scalable impact. She is committed to unifying influencers, thought leaders, brands and organisations to create the most significant impact for communities in Australia and beyond. Enjoy.
This was a fun chat with a fun lady who knows a vast amount about wealth creation and management talking with a bloke who is financially inept. It’s not that I don’t care about money, it’s just that it’s not really an area of expertise or mastery. Being as I own a business, I should probably care more and pay more attention. Vanessa Stoykov is on a mission to help Australians get real about money and she rocked up to TYP full of cheek, energy and some very sound financial advice and yes, I listened. Her new book ‘The Five Conversations About Money That Will Radically Change Your Life’ is now available for pre-order (blatant plug). Enjoy.
Videographer, Creator, Podcaster, Adopted Son (I have a few) and one of my favourite peeps to do coffee and chat with, Tommy Jackett is back at TYP. This chat follows no particular path or direction but nonetheless, there’s a little something in it for everyone. A conversational smorgasbord, of sorts. We chatted about how often I’m asked to be a ‘pseudo-dad’ (often), meeting people you’ve never met who know you well (because of the podcast), love jobs vs. money jobs, hustle culture, inappropriate laughter, imposter syndrome, anti-goals, the way we label things (for better or worse), the science of podcasting (I know it seems like unplanned, chaotic bullshit), excellence and obsession, creating connection, creating a demand for what you do, perceived value and lots more. Enjoy.

Patrick and Tor are back talking about tech that can make our lives better and sometimes, worse. This time we speak about why touch screens in cars are way more dangerous and distracting than old-fashioned knobs and buttons (to do the same jobs), technology helping people with dementia, companies integrating batteries into the actual frames of their electric cars, Elon Musk getting fat shamed, how our brain responds under fMRI when we think about the different people in our lives, power-saving mode on my (your) phone (apparently I need to use it), the things that chew up phone battery and for some reason, we talk about the very non-tech topic of intermittent fasting. Enjoy.

Patrick and Tor are back and this time we chat about the happiness-money correlation, needing stuff vs. wanting stuff, how we waste money on subscriptions (and how not to), the results of Patrick’s road test on his cheap ($39.95) ‘smart watch’ (spoiler alert.. I was very surprised), the de-extinction of animals (Tasmanian Tiger anyone?), poverty in Australia (how the poverty line is determined), banning phones in schools, the death of point-and-shoot cameras and lots more. Enjoy.
Tommy slid by TYP Central and we chatted about having ‘relationships’ with people we’ve never met (like podcast hosts), how friendships change as we age, blokes being increasingly vulnerable, rejection therapy (it’s a thing), confidence vs. cockiness, Tommy trying to give away free money to strangers, the misuse of the word ‘literally’, procrastination, the horrible sound of our own voice and lots more. Enjoy.
