The Podcast That Helps You Create Little Habits, For a Big Life. Formerly known as Straight & Curly / Poductivity.

Presented by Carly Jacobs

    A Practical Guide To Dying

    A Practical Guide To Dying

    Just a warning this episode is a touch on the heavy side. It’s about death, a subject we don’t often give much space too, particularly in Western Cultures. 

    This week I have guest Jackey Coyle, author of In The End, A Practical Guide to Dying on the show to talk about all things… well… death. 

    Jackey is a writer and researcher who wrote her beautiful book in collaboration with Fernlea, a palliative care facility. 

    In this episode, we talk about death, preparing for death and how to help loved ones in their final hours.

    Don’t forget that Jackey’s book is available on Booktopia - it’s called In The End, a Practical Guide for Dying - https://www.booktopia.com.au/in-the-end-jackey-coyle/ebook/9780645214611.html

    Let's Talk About Sex with Isiah McKimmie

    Let's Talk About Sex with Isiah McKimmie

    One thing I don’t talk about much in my work is sex. Not for any particular reason, it’s just not something that’s high on my list of priorities to research and form opinions on. However, I have lots of listeners who have asked about sex therapy so I’ve got Isiah McKimmie on the show to well, talk about sex! 

    She is ridiculously qualified, with a masters degree in Relational Psychotherapy, a masters degree in Science in Medicine(Sexual Counselling/Psychosexual and a Post-Graduate Diploma of Sexology just to name a few. She’s Australia’s most qualified relationship and intimacy specialist and in this episode she gives excellent advice on sex, couples therapy and how to get the intimacy you crave in life.

    I am absolutely delighted to have Amantha Imber of Inventium and How I Work podcast. If you’ve never listened to How I Work get it in your ears she has some mega high profile guests including Micheal Mosley, Abbi Jacobson from Broad City and other very amazing people.

    Self Improvement Bookclub - The 48 Laws of Power

    Self Improvement Bookclub - The 48 Laws of Power

    We chose this book because it has a weird controversial reputation. 

    It's kind of a guide for manipulating people but the author Robert Greene seems really legit and actually very smart so we are deeply confused. 

    Join us as we dissect this thoroughly strange, contradictory, quite alarming book.

    Why We Need To Stop Ignoring Quiet Resilience

    Why We Need To Stop Ignoring Quiet Resilience

    The inspiration for this episode came from a newsletter I sent a few weeks ago about quiet resilience. 

    I had so much feedback for an expansion of my thoughts so I put it all in a podcast for you! 

    I see you, I know this is hard. You're brilliant. x

Great podcast

I’ve been listening to Carly since the Straight and Curly podcast days, and as much as I miss Kelly, I’m still loving all of Carly’s tips and her convos with other Interesting people. The topics are always inspiring and thought-provoking. Thanks Carly!

I love Wednesdays!

I’ve started really looking forward to “catching up” with you on Wednesdays, both on the podcast and online. I love how relevant your podcast is to people in all different areas of life, from stay at home parents, professionals and entrepreneurs.
I loved the Rescue Remedy episode. It’s the salve for the soul we all needed.
