    Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 4 Episode 10 of People Soup.

    P-Soupers – thanks for tuning in –this week it’s what you’ve been waiting for - the second part of my chat with psychologist, author and academic - Dr Nic Hooper

    In Part 2 of our chat we delve into the process of writing a book, who knew that choosing the title and strapline was so important? Nic also choses a song or songs to announce the arrival of his book and there are a couple of cracking takeaways - one for students, one for parents.

    This chat was recorded on a special day in June - a significant day for the Hoopers and the evolution of this book - you’ll find out more at the end.

    Thanks for Asking

    Thanks for Asking

    Season 4 Episode 7

    Hi P-Soupers, thanks for tuning in – this week it’s another cup-a-soup called Thanks for Asking. I want to build upon last week’s episode - GETTING CURIOUS - where I suggested one way we could ask colleagues about their experience of work - so in this episode - I’m going to answer that very same question based upon my personal experience.

    My suggested conversation openers were:

    “I’m curious how you experience this workplace, would you be willing to share?”

    OR

    “What’s it like to be you in this workplace?”

    Getting Curious

    Getting Curious

    Season 4 Episode 6

    P-Soupers – thanks for tuning in –this week it’s another cup a soup with me called 'Getting Curious' - I want to build upon last week’s episode - perspectacles - and really consider how we can get curious about how other people experience the workplace. As I said in perspectacles - we’re can’t hear each other’s internal soundtracks - we don’t know our colleagues work song - and I’m going to draw upon evidence from psychologist, Sarah Bonner and an organisation called Blueprint for All.

Chris Winson ,

Really helpful

Building into a really helpful and good series of insightful and helpful podcasts. While based on work environments the practices, examples and suggestions are applicable to all of life. Just the right length and well structured. Keep them coming Ross.

May 2021 update - this is now officially my favourite podcast! It’s grown into something that continues to nourish, inform and at times brought tears. It’s introduced me to people and their wonderful work, and provided a memorial to a friend that I can listen to whenever need to. Ross - huge respect for all you do.

Mark_Oliver ,

Highly recommended!

Over the last few months People Soup has become one of my favourite podcasts.

Ross McIntosh brings a warmth and charm to every episode that makes ACT and Contextual Behavioural Science both accessible and compelling; his interviews are delightful, wonder-filled conversations, and his think-pieces take you by the hand and say “this is how my mind works, does yours work this way too?” And reassuringly, the answer is always “yes!”

JaneBM ,

Great podcast!

Absolutely fantastic podcast. If your interested in workplace psychology or fancy improving your own mental well being, then this is a great place to learn. Ross’s relaxed and funny approach makes listening very easy. Keep up the great work! Cheers, Guy
