    Attracting abundance in frightening times with Gabby Bernstein

    Gabby Bernstein is an author, motivational speaker and coach from New York - she’s written six NYT Best Selling books, and her seventh “Super Attractor” is out now. 


    I first met Gabby about nine years ago when we were both a part of the Summit conference scene in LA and Utah, and I’ve kept an eye on what she’s been working on since then. 


    She and I share a journey of sobriety, however what Gabby’s done with where her direction has taken her since is astonishing. 


    She’s found a way to empower people and share her lessons about bringing things into your life you’d rather have in your life into your life. 


    We have talked about manifesting on this show before, and Gabby is a weapons-grade manifestation machine. 


    The New York Times have called her a guru for the next generation - she may be that but she’s also someone who’s got a lot to say to help you get where you want to be. 


    She’s in Australia right now, there’s a seminar in Sydney this weekend on Feb 2nd in Darling Harbour you can get more intel at gabbybernstein.com


    Can’t wait for you to hear this. 


    Let her know you heard her here.

    The Question of Australia Day with Stan Grant

    The Question of Australia Day with Stan Grant

    Stan Grant is an Australian television news and political journalist. He is currently the ABC's indigenous and international affairs analyst, and professor of global affairs at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia.


    He’s written a number of books, two which absolutely stand out are Talking to My Country, and his latest book Australia Day.


    You see Stan is an Aboriginal First Nation Australian man.
    His father was an elder of the Wiradjuri people - a country that stretches across central NSW - from Wagga Wagga and Leeton to West Wyalong, Parkes, Dubbo, Forbes, Cootamundra, Cowra and Young among other places.


    Stan has spent much of his career abroad - covering conflict, has witnessed the unimaginable horrors of war, and has lived for years in countries far from his own.


    These days, Stan is back.
    And he’s written a book called Australia Day.
    A book about not just about a difficult day in our community - the 26th of January, the day we as a nation celebrate Arthur Phillip planting a flag and declaring this country for England - for some it’s the day that Australia as we know it began. For others it’s the day that Australia as they knew it ended.


    It’s a complex thing to talk about.
    There’s a lot of emotion around what it is to be Australian, and the role of the legacy of colonialism on us all, Indigenous or otherwise - and where we go from here.


    It’s a hot-button topic.
    One that deserves a long conversation and a deep exploration.
    While you listen to this, try to consider what things would be like if it were you and your family affected by this situation.
    Try to see what it might be like or have been like for people in this country when the Europeans came.
    Do I have the answers? Absolutely not.
    But I know it starts with listening, seeing and empathy.
    I like to try and have an idea about what might make today better than yesterday.
    Here’s one…
    I mean we could simply declare Australia a republic, recognise Aboriginal Australians in the founding constitution of that republic and instead of January 26 we could pick a date in summer and call it “Independence Day!” But that’s just me.


    So let’s go.


    Come to my house and enjoy a cuppa and a conversation with a man that speaks as if he’s free styling poetry, Stan Grant. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Adapting to Climate Change with Jamie Simmonds

    Adapting to Climate Change with Jamie Simmonds

    Jamie Simmonds is the former Director of the Strengthening Grantham, which was the project to relocate the small Queensland town of Gratham following the statewide deadly floods in 2011.  The Grantham relocation is now regarded by industry and academics globally as the leading example of a managed retreat.


    What’s a managed retreat? It’s a policy of slowly moving people and property and communities away from parts of the country that will now be unsafe to live in. Be it because they keep burning down, keep flooding, or are just now underwater because of Sea Level Rise…


    In his role as director, Jamie successfully implemented an historic, Australian-first land swap process. Oversaw the creation, planning and construction of a new estate of 120 lots. Delivered the project in only 11 months, from the time of the flood event to seeing the first families moving into their new homes, a timeline that has yet to be replicated anywhere else in the world.


    Jamie’s work includes advising communities on how to adapt to climate change or natural disasters, but also advocates that community mental health support is made a top priority throughout the process of a relocation.


    Jamie is an American born Australian Citizen who is now based in Brisbane, Australia. Earlier this year he toured towns in the U.S. to view their relocation efforts and advise on how future efforts could be improved, an initiative that will continue as climate adaption continues to grow in urgency. Jamie has written a book about his work and it is going to be released in the first half of 2020.

Truly Better Than Yesterday

Who knew that the handsome man who hands out the roses could deliver such thought provoking, sometimes horrifying yet always with a glimmer of hope, inspiring interviews with humans from all aspects of this colourful world in which we live. I have enjoyed and gained knowledge with every interview and every check in and truly value the raw honesty in which Osher talks about his own mental anguish and how he deals with this on a daily basis. I feel listening to these podcasts can only help make me a kinder human to the world and to my fellow world inhabitants. Today really is better than yesterday. Thank you.

Now essential listening

I have been enjoying Osher’s podcast for years. He interviews amazing people, and is a very skilled interviewer. The conversations are inspiring, intelligent and authentic. I thank Osher for his openess on mental health. Whether you experience mental health struggles personally or you support friends and family with their struggles, he offers compassion and really useful advice and understanding for EVERYONE.

Lately, as Australia has unequivocally demonstrated the impact of global warming in the scale and devastation of the 2019/2020 fires, I have found myself feeling more anxious and depressed than ever about the future of this beautiful world. I have intentionally turned to Osher as I know he bring calm, hope, and lights the ways forward to help so many in these difficult times. He is now essential listening for me.

Osher - thanks Mate.

Thank you

Osher your podcasts are a balm to my hectic every day. I listen to them while I’m working out, and when I’m driving around my four feisty daughters all over the place. Thanks for keeping me company. I value your honesty, vulnerability and tenderness along with your calm and insightful nature. It’s medicinal.
