    #031 - How to avoid losing your sh*t in a divided world - w/ Mark Groves

    #031 - How to avoid losing your sh*t in a divided world - w/ Mark Groves

    Last week I went LIVE with a man I've come to know and truly adore - Human Connection Specialist, friend, and fellow advocate for free expression, Mark Groves - who is also known for being the man behind Create the love and for being the co-founder of the world's first social emotional network - Mined.

    We left no stone unturned in this fantastic conversation which you can also watch over on Instagram by clicking here.

    We covered the different layers of self-censorship, censorship on a wider scale (government overreach - and the psychology behind it), the importance of focusing on what you can control, how the past two years has revealed so much about human nature and our need to belong, the division we're seeing run rife in the West, the hope that exists amongst the f*ckery, & MORE.

    #030 - Why cancel culture thrives on you being a terrible communicator (let's talk solutions!)

    #030 - Why cancel culture thrives on you being a terrible communicator (let's talk solutions!)

    In this episode (originally recorded LIVE on IG), I covered: are you a more passive-aggressive communicator than you think?, why ASSERTIVE COMMUNICATORS are needed now more than ever, why communication is a missing piece in the cancel culture conversation, why  labelling everything as self-censorship isn’t helpful, how to know when you’re self-censoring vs using your social filter (good thing)…

    …why risking peoples perception of you has to become non-negotiable, what happens when people start to behave exactly like those they claim to oppose…

    …why a solutions focused approach to our collective disconnect is the way forward, why sharing online shouldn’t be the main point of undoing self-censorship, the gifts of being misunderstood…

    & SO MUCH MORE.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in self-improvement. Africa discusses a range of topics very eloquently and without coming across as judgemental in any way. I find there are always lots of insights to take away, even if the episode title doesn’t immediately resonate with me.

God bless you Africa for your honesty and courage. To open your heart and share your spirit with us so that we too can learn and evolve is inspiring. Thank you xxx

If you just listen to one podcast…

This is the podcast worth investing your time and attention into! Africa’s work intersects so many genres, but is far more grounded and applicable than any other title I could think to compare her with, whilst avoiding the stale “3 simple rules for [insert complex and highly nuanced topic that requires care and context]” format. Plus she’s so funny and her work is sprinkled with humour and good humoured thinking.
