From Improv to Impact with Eran Thomson
Once upon a time, two ex-ad humans sat down to yarn about how creativity is an integral part of frothing and doing good stuff in the world.
Eran Thomson is a speaker, director, creative, social entrepreneur, not to mention improv aficionado, and the word prolific comes to mind, as he seems to take all of this in his stride.
This jam ranges around the place from heart-centred memories existing in tokens left behind, to laughter being not only the best medicine, but also the best strategy for thriving humans in business.
Eran is a max chiller among the many professions and we chat about the inspiration that comes from our own sporting adventures with good humans, to drawing inspo from extreme sports athletes and business focused mentors alike.
If you're interested in improv, or how to engage in dare I say it, serial entrepreneurship, then guess what - they go hand in hand.
Eran is a genuinely wholesome human, so regardless of your frothy intention for listening to this episode, i'm sure like me, you'll take away some banging insights.
And if you'd like to connect with Eran and his radness:
Owning emotion & frothing through isolation with Darren Bruce
One upon a time in Lockdown, two buddies decided to get together for a yarn about WTF was going on in the world and how we could come together to thrive in uncertain times...
Darren Bruce is a mindset aficionado, elite performance coach, emotion specialist and most certainly a frother. He guides everyone from SAS troops to business power-couples and entrepreneurs looking to tap into the root causes of why and how they show up in the world. Uncovering their true purpose and magic in the process.
In this frothy ep, we discuss:
• The importance of finding your SAS troupe for group flow
• Positivity/ froth for getting unstuck in times of isolation
• How magic can drop in for all of us - if we believe it can.
Personally I've gained so much from having Darren in my frothosphere and he's helped me through some tough times as well as explore maximising the positives in the good ones.
I'm sure you'll get as much of a buzz out of this episode as I did.

Composting your Life & Unicorn Cake with Sara Rickards
Once upon a time...
There was an interview that featured a worldly frother of the highest order.
Fuckgiver by name,
Fuckgiver by nature.
Sara Rickards is at the forefront of rogue radness and neo-activism.
Her previous life as a scientist and subsequent affinity with data has lead her through the nerd forest and into the hearts of all who get the privilege to hang with her.
Some would say it's no longer the data that she seeks, but the hearta.
Within this tale there is exploration of a call to arms (meaning more hugs) for how we can connect on a deeper level as humans,
What sacred currencies could emerge out of this current pickle,
How to sit in nature and ask big questions - like how to compost your life.
With something for all,
You'll find poetry with a double-ended dildo
and a deep-dive into poo as a vital sauce of life.
If unicorn cake is your jam or you've have been curious about how you can give more f***s, then this theatrical conversation is for you.
If you're easily offended or a boring can't, then carry on scrolling.
Lastly, if you desire to send a sacred scroll AKA letter to Sara please let me know and we can get it arranged.
And please leave reviews - good and insights for improvement - all welcome.
Buying back the rainforest with Dom Desmond
Once upon a time there was a podcast Recorded well over a year ago...
Long before the times of Covid,
A podcast like no other.
It brought forth a wise discussion between two longtime comrades who understood that Coke (both kinds) didn't buy happiness.
With the epiphany under the utility belt of life they vowed not to put more shit out into the world.
Their trade included such chapters as spray painting out the front of the actual Queen's house for disabled rights, saving endangered bird species' by hiding them in the worlds most popular game and teaching children to avoid the Brazilian drug war, the two amicably split way.
Dom would go on to found a business destined to buy back rainforests and keep the world's feet warm and frothy at the same time.
Listen on as they chuckle about their lives and mournfully mourn the death of one our planet's most famous activists.
The 'said' mournfulness is actually chuckle-worthy too as that very activist is yet to die.
Well played Dom and Benny. Well played.
And with that, we implore you to go 'forth' and change one letter.
Do it for the 'Froth'.
It's all we may have left...
The podcast, now with almost 2000 downloads on the sacred fruit tree and would very much appreciate an honest review.
Riding the Waves of Lyrical Activism with Billy Otto
Billy Otto is a musician, activist, waterman, poet and all-round great human.
Most recently he cowrote and performed the banger 'Can't take the Ocean out of me' in collaboration with Patagonia - proving to be a catalyst in the Fight for the Bite campaign.
Which we won!
Billy says he is an eternal learner and we discuss what it's like to be always hungry to sharpen the sword inside and outside the studio.
Some additional frothy topics we jam on:
• How to support independent artists through this tough period
• Why loving your craft wins above all else
• How to discover your frothy places in nature to super-charge your day.
I mention in the episode that I have Billy's songs in my head a lot. It's one thing for music to make you smile, but to have your buddy in your head who brings such light and legendariness to our existence on the planet.
Peaking with a grin from ear to ear. how's that for a not so hidden pun.
Through Billy, I discovered that a conversation can be a superpower if you set your day up around them.
And this episode is an example.
PS. Give it a try and let me know how you go.
Enjoy as much as I did and with a whole lot of heart, soul and rock n roll from the one and only - Billy Otto.
Information ecology and kindred communities with Matt Kendall
Matty Kendall is one of Australia's leading strategists and thinkers and I'm stoked to share the wisdom that I get access to most days of the week with you fine listeners.
He built his company Fromm after breaking away from the archaic advertising model with validation coming in the from of a viral blog post.
We centre this discussion on the topic of sense making and cultivating a healthy, thriving information ecology. And if that sounds like jibberish, Matty will walk you through it/ more like tap dance your way through the garden.
When we jam together we tend to build on each others insights and this chat is no different.
In this dive down the Information rabbit hole and discuss:
• The go-to sources for balanced info in unbalanced times
• Why the time is now to prototype that idea - and how
• Thy a Kindred community is what your world needs
One of Matt's core abilities is to turn the English language into poetry and I hope you find many golden nuggets in among the conversation.
We could speak for days. But here's a meaty hour.
It's also important to note that if you'd like to join our Rise Up program. Please check out https://www.reunion.earth/riseup-april
One last thing, we jam on parliament and how out-dated and childish the current setup is. While some of this has changed since recording, most of the comments still hold true. ;)
