    Ep #33 - Why do people decide to leave their hometowns?

    With all of us finally settled in Toronto, this is an interesting one - why do we move away from our homes? Today we discuss the reasons to move, as well as the challenges faced on moving and why we still look forward to moving, with our guest Chelsey Chao (IG: @chelsey_chao). We also try to define what makes a home - the place or the people? #podcast #podcasters #podcastlife #canada #toronto #losangeles #hometown #family #friends

    Ep #32 - Why is emotional intelligence more important than IQ?

    Entering our MBA's, we have all heard of the IQ vs EQ debate - which is more important? Today, along with our guest Deepika Jain (IG: @i.deepikajain), we talk about what exactly is Emotional Intelligence, and how it is sometimes more important than having knowledge or IQ. We also discuss the effect of EQ on decision-making, handling stress, and happiness. #podcast #podcastlife #podcasters #canada #toronto #losangeles #la #iq #eq #intelligencequotient #emotionalquotient

    Ep #31 - Why do we think of others the most when they’re gone?

    Missing someone is natural - whether it's a friend who has moved across the world, or an ex who you aren't in touch with, or a family member who has passed away - but have you ever wondered why we miss people only after they're gone? Today we have Sameen Alam (IG: @sameen711) sharing his experiences of missing people, experiences and even things - and we also discuss how to avoid this sense of loss when we do feel that way. #podcast #podcastlife #missing #relationships #love #family #friends

    Ep #30 - Why do we choose success over happiness?

    Ep #30 - Why do we choose success over happiness?

    Is it easy to define what happiness is? Or what success is? Both are subjective and both are ever changing - yet, which is the more important one? Today, we have Rrahul (IG: @rrahultopiwala) with us to discuss why do people choose success over happiness. We talk about what happiness means to us - whether it is standup comedy or design or travel - and if we could prioritize these over our careers. We also talk about how a life chasing happiness would look like - both the good and bad sides of it. #podcast #podcastlife #happiness #success

    Ep #29 - Why do we crave social validation?

    Ep #29 - Why do we crave social validation?

    Why does receiving praise or a compliment feel so good, especially in a group setting? Have you ever wondered why we seek social validation and acceptance? In today's episode, we are joined by Arpitha Mohan (IG: @arpithamohan) and we share stories of when we altered our behaviour to be more social validation/acceptance seeking. We dive deep into our reasons for such behaviour and discuss what society would be like if everyone stopped caring about validation. Last but not least, do we need to seek social acceptance with our actions?
