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.

My weird-but-loveable ‘brother from another mother’ is back after a break, and this time we talk about surviving the mess and mayhem, dealing with results we don't want, learning and growing though pain, letting go of the need to 'be right', becoming aware of our lack of awareness, the relationship between our expectations and our disappointment and plenty more. 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.

In this freestyle and rambling chat, Tiff and I talk about how we might optimise (or potentially, waste) our time, energy, genetics and resources, when it comes to the ever-present challenge of exercising effectively, efficiently and safely. Enjoy.

We like to think we're open-minded and objective because it makes us feel good about ourselves and of course, nobody wants to be seen as closed-minded, biased or unteachable. But in a world where we all have pre-existing beliefs, ideas, values, likes, dislikes, biases (yes, even you), preferences, programming, standards, perspectives and opinions, is it possible to be truly open-minded, even if we want to be?

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.

Trav Bell and I have shared similar journeys, beginning in the fitness world and ending up in the professional speaking space. Sure, he’s younger, better looking, more charismatic and more successful than me but other than that, peas in a fucking pod. This was fun.

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.

Dr. Scott Lyons believes I have what it takes to make it in Drag. As in, Drag Queen. I suspect there'll be some trimming, manicuring, waxing and tucking (don't picture that) before my debut but with his coaching and support, I believe I can pull it off. So to speak. Before Scott was a Psychologist, Author, Researcher and Doctor of Osteopathy (quite the combo), he performed professionally as a Drag Queen to pay his way through University (College). I love that story. This conversation went far and wide (clearly), but we did manage to have a serious and fascinating chat about the what, why, how and healing of trauma. I love my job and I love that I get the opportunity to listen, learn and laugh with brilliant, generous people like Scott.

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.’
