This episode might be somewhat confronting for some but like it or not, death is an inevitability (obviously) and Nikki Morrison and I do our best to be sensitive and compassionate as we navigate this fascinating insight into her incredible work as a Pastoral Carer and End of Life Doula. Nikki is also an Exercise Scientist, Registered Nurse, Oncology Specialist and Earth Angel. It's not often I interview someone who genuinely lives their life in the service of others, but she is that person.

This was a fun chat with one of my 'old athletes". I had the pleasure of working with Nathan Burke when I was at St. Kilda Football Club for a few years. And of his 3 Best & Fairest Awards, 4 x All-Australian Teams, St. Kilda Team of the Century, 323 games and Australian Hall of Fame induction, I contributed exactly zero to his success but nonetheless, it was an absolute pleasure working with him. This is a casual chat with Burkey about life in and outside of sport. Enjoy. *TYP Triva: Nathan was our first ever guest.

The Team Geek is back talking all-things tech, life and human optimisation. Along the way we discuss adaptive eye glasses which have adjustable lenses, meaning the magnification can be changed instantly. We also talk about how Tiff and Patrick wasted money on a high-performance toothbrush that turned out to be low-performance junk. Grounding mats, Patrick's addiction to Op Shops, Zoom fatigue, the world's (new) fastest passenger jet, recycled leather, humans settling on other planets, the way some primary-aged kids are having their brain activity tracked during classes and lots more!

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.

What's your life telling you? What are your results saying? What's working and what's not? Are you a conscious driver (of your life) or are you an unconscious passenger? For most of my adult years, my life has been an ongoing experiment.

Sure, it sounds like a cheesey, bullsh*tty title but it's an accurate representation. This dude is a modern-day warrior, with a mindset that can only be developed in the middle of extreme adversity, discomfort and pressure. Nick Lavery is an active-duty member of The United States Army Special Forces. Commonly known as Green Berets, the Special Forces perform critical missions including direct action, counterinsurgency, foreign internal defence, special reconnaissance, and unconventional warfare. Although Nick sustained life-threatening injuries in combat, resulting in an above-the-knee amputation of his leg, he not only remained in the Army, he returned to his Special Forces Detachment and continues conducting combat operations to this day. I genuinely loved chatting with Nick and hope you enjoy the conversation too.

This episode will probably ruffle a few feathers, challenge a few beliefs, inspire a few people, confuse a few people, give hope to some, and maybe arouse some curiosity. For those of us with pre-existing thoughts, beliefs and ideas (you and me), it can be difficult to consider information, concepts and stories which don't fit in to our model of the world and how we think things work. Nonetheless, I did my best to open my mind, overcome my programming and conditioned thinking, be fully present and to respectfully and curiously consider what Dr. Eben Alexander had to share. He definitely challenged some of my thinking but to be honest, much of what he had to share resonated strongly with me. I enjoyed this chat and it left me with much to ponder. *Bio: Academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander III, whose career includes decades as a physician and associate professor at Harvard Medical School and revered teaching hospitals, was once staunchly committed to the materialist world view - the belief that the physical world is all that exists. His scientific belief system was altered by his 2008 transcendental near-death experience (NDE), an odyssey into another realm during a week-long coma. Despite a bleak medical prognosis, Dr. Alexander awoke to make an inexplicable return to full health. His medical case and recovery were validated in the peer-reviewed 'Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease'. Since his NDE, Dr. Alexander has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with quantum physics, cosmology and the philosophy of mind. Dr. Alexander speaks around the world to educate about the role that consciousness plays in wellness, healing and recovery.

Like the myriad of philosophers, psychologists, stoics, gurus, researchers and deep thinkers who have preceded him, Derek Sivers has been observing, analysing and explaining human thinking, human doing and human being, for years. He is an out-of-the-box thinker, and I loved our conversation. Derek is (and has been) a successful musician, entrepreneur, creative, author, speaker and philanthropist. Interestingly, these days Derek gives away pretty much everything he earns. Enjoy. *His best-selling book is called ‘How to Live: 27 conflicting answers and one weird conclusion.’
