Podcast

Dr Daniel Ellenberg is back at TYP and it's been too long. Nonetheless, we had a fun catch-up (which we've broken into two parts because we're both chatty AF) and we spoke about the science and psychology of being a bloke. Bloke-ology. Apparently, we don't all have our sh*t together. Who knew?
Shocker. Anyway, the good Doc and talk about our evolutionary need to be part of a tribe, the health benefits of care and connection, the risks of isolation and social exclusion, self-doubt vs. self-loathing, recognising our own programming and conditioning, being able to challenge our existing beliefs, the importance and value of understanding people who aren't like us and Daniel opens the vulnerability door and talks about his own issues with anxiety and depression. Enjoy.

People think I'm confident, and with some things, I am. With others, l'm not. Like many of you, self-doubt, crappy self-esteem and a lack of confidence have been reoccurring themes on Planet Craig. In some environments and with some tasks, l'm calm, confident and capable. But change the situation and I can easily be the over-thinking, self-doubting, self-sabotaging ex-fat kid from Latrobe Valley. In this solo episode, I talk about the challenge of building confidence and some of the tools and strategies that have proven to be effective for me. Enjoy.

Trying to manage my mind is often like trying to herd cognitive cats. Painful. Pointless. Hilarious. You? If you're like me, your mind can be a source of pain and pleasure, chaos and calm, fascination and boredom, focus and distraction, and that's all before breakfast. Your mind is 'You HQ’.. your operational headquarters. It is the platform from where you view, process, interpret and understand the world around you. In this freestyle solo episode, I discuss the ever-present challenge of trying to understand, manage and optimise the human mind. Enjoy.

Gillespo is back in, what can only be described a totally freestyle chat about fascinating things, and it never ceases to amaze me how much (seemingly) random sh*t he knows about so many things, including Prairie Voles (a kind of rodent), which according to him, are possibly the only animal in world capable of actual love (don't get mad at me, he said it - lol). Oh, we also chat about other equally random and fascinating stuff (religion, mirror neurons, trust, bullying, oxytocin and intuition). Enjoy.

Professor Srikumar Rao operates at the intersection of business, sociology, spirituality, psychology and philosophy and his mission is to help people increase their consciousness, effectiveness, self-awareness and joy. He is an international speaker, bestselling author, and one of the most popular MBA lecturers in America. His courses are among the highest rated at many of the world's top business schools, including Columbia University and The London Business School. The Prof and I chatted about the Matrix (we're living in one, but not the one you think), our self-created illusion, mental and emotional prisons, why identity doesn't matter, raising our consciousness and why the 'idea' of success (how l'll feel when I get there) and the reality of it (how I actually feel when I 'succeed') are rarely the same. Super interesting. Enjoy.

Jacqui Louder is one of Australia's most successful and respected Sport Psychologists, a good mate and my one-time co-host from my radio days. This was an interesting conversation, which began with a question around being alone in a crowd. Many of us have felt disconnected, irrelevant and isolated in a room full of people. If that's you, listen to this.

Dr. Scott Lyons is a recovering drama addict. And no, I'm not using that term as a metaphor or analogy. As a clinician, Scott describes himself (and many others) as having been (or still being) addicted to drama. Who knew it was a thing? Well, it is and this was a fascinating and different conversation that l'm sure will resonate with many. Who is Dr. Scott Lyons? He is a licensed holistic psychologist, educator and author of the book ‘Addicted to Drama: Healing Dependency on Crisis and Chaos in Yourself and Others.' Scott is a renowned body-based trauma expert, Doctor of Osteopathy Mind-Body Medicine specialist and has been featured in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, ForbesWomen, Fast Company, The Telegraph, The Guardian, INC., CNBC Make It, Fortune, Bustle, and Reader's Digest. And now, in what is clearly the pinnacle of his career, he drops by TYP Central to wax lyrical about the human condition. Enjoy.

This episode is part-teaching, part-coaching and part kick-in-the-arse (with love). Some people’s lives are in semi-regular free-fall because, no matter how much mess, mayhem or chaos happens in their world, it’s never their fault and the problem is always someone or something else. This chat is not about blame, self-loathing or criticism, it’s about self-awareness, personal power, accountability and living your best life. Enjoy.

This is a two-part conversation where Melissa asks me 12 questions, without forewarning of theme or topic. I hear them for the first time on the podcast. In this episode I answer (discuss) the following..  (1) Why do you say that your biggest problem is you? (2) Do you think you’re too hard on yourself? (3) When did you feel most inadequate? (4) Why do so many of us self-sabotage? (5) You grew up in religion, where are you now with all that? (6) Why do we desire external validation so much? Enjoy.

Josh Lenartowicz is a world-class Bodybuilder (2 x Mr. Olympia Competitor), Coach, Entrepreneur and Mate of mine who has been through some sh*t over the last few years. This was a fun catch up where we spoke about everything from bodybuilding, competition, diets that suck and standing on stage in budgie smugglers while being judged (literally) to dealing with pain, setbacks, self-doubt and uncertainty. Enjoy.

We all like to think we have no bias, that we’re totally objective, open-minded and would never discriminate. It makes us feel better about us. In fact, 90% of us think we’re more open-minded than the average person. Well, if you’re like me and have existing beliefs, ideas, values and ingrained attitudes (not bad things, by the way), then like me, you’re not quite the cognitive or emotional blank canvas you might like to be. Life’s much more comfortable (for a while) when we only pay attention to the stuff (ideas, information, philosophies, research, people) that reflects our own thinking (confirmation bias). And for people who love being comfortable and ‘right’ (all of us), bias makes complete ‘sense’. *Jessica Nordell is an award-winning author and science writer known for blending rigorous science with compassionate humanity. Her first book, ‘The End of Bias: A Beginning: The Science and Practice of Overcoming Unconscious Bias’ is the culmination of fifteen years of reporting and writing on the subject of bias and discrimination and how to solve it, for publications including the New York Times, the Atlantic, and the New Republic. Jessica is great in this chat and I'm sure she will resonate with you. Enjoy.
