    Dating Apps, Part 2

    Dating Apps, Part 2

    To say that dating apps are the same as meeting someone in real life is bollocks according to the 2 LADS. We learned that last week in the first part of their discussion on online dating. So go back and have a listen to that now if you missed it. Then come settle in for the second part of the discussion where Leggy gets into his personal experience with dating apps, Daniel recounts a few more adventures from his own online dating days and the LADS continue to work through why they believe dating apps are all taste and no substance, like having a big mac over a quinoa bowl.

    (01:52) - The ritual of meeting people IRL - “That process is a needed and necessary part of intimacy.”

    (13:38) - Women and dating apps - “Women now, I think they'd rather you meet them on the app.”
    (15:18) - Daniel’s dating app shenanigans - “I knew it was getting bad.”
    (17:05) - Keys to the kingdom - “If you could hand that to anyone, they would want it initially, and then they would go, ‘I don't want this anymore.’”
    (19:53) - Addiction based - “These people that are making these apps are very very smart. And it's all built into the system for you to pay to get the hit, to get the dopamine hit, to get more likes, get more appreciation. All from the comfort of your fucking armchair.”
    (23:04) - Autonomizing our humanity - “We're outsourcing the ability to be intimate.”
    (24:15) - We need our own village - “You need your own village, a small amount of people that can hold you accountable.”

    Dating Apps, Part 1

    Dating Apps, Part 1

    In the first part of another 2-part discussion, the 2 LADS go a little lighter with the topic of dating apps, including Daniel’s experiences with them and why he says they felt more powerful than drugs. Daniel also explains what the terms somatic and corpsing mean while Leggy talks about being impulsive and how he feels about meditation. Come back next week when the lads continue the discussion, getting into Leggy’s experiences with online dating along with a few more dating app shenanigans from Daniel.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (03:02) - Corpsing explained - “I am a notorious corpser.”
    (12:57) - On somatics - “It's wild how much your mind is so sneaky, you know? And actually your body, it always tells you the truth.”
    (17:50) - Things that are ‘woo woo’ - “We have a tendency as human beings to make up narratives if we can't explain something. It's like the placebo effect, right? Very often we can make things up in our heads and empirical data often allows you to make much clearer decisions.”
    (18:47) - Music as a metaphor for how we look at the world - “You can either go to a concert and spend a lot of time listening to cat guts being drawn against horse hair creating vibrations, or you can go and listen to a violin play a beautiful concerto. And both are true.”
    (21:39) - Leggy’s patterns in relationships - “If it's just you in a room, then you're a genius, you know? Because there's no potential pushback.”
    (32:55) - Bonus Question for Patrons - “Where are your limitations in a relationship? How do they come up and how do they manifest?”
    (35:01) - Daniel on dating apps - “Dating apps essentially remove the discomfort of that rite of passage, accountability and putting yourself out there.”
    (46:12) - The objectification and projection that dating apps proliferate - “You can't possibly read the energy of a person when you're just looking at pictures.”
    (47:31) - The unlimited access that dating apps offer - “It's like an all-you-can-eat buffet. There's no value to it because you've paid $2.99 and now you can just eat whatever you want.”

    Judgement, Part 2

    Judgement, Part 2

    In the second part of Daniel and Leggy’s discussion on judgement, the 2 LADS conclude that judgement can be a dead end in any relationship, then they talk through ways to recognize when and why we are judging a situation in order to find a healthier and more productive pathway forward. They also explain why they believe it’s important to investigate where our own judgment comes from and recognize that we all have the capacity to do the things we’re judging. Daniel sums up his thoughts saying, “You’re always a foot away from the ditch.” And Leggy offers some closing advice: “Keep checking yourself before you’re wrecking yourself, brothers and sisters.”

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:50) - The danger with judgement - “All I can distill it down to is trying to be more discerning with what judgment is all about.”
    (08:51) - Judgement vs. Accountability - “I think judgment just stops. Once it has come down, that's where it ends. Whereas accountability is more ongoing.”
    (09:42) - The Big Ugly and projecting - “It's pretty rare where you can just find a human that hasn't got any Skeletons in the closet.”
    (14:10) - The real power of non-judgement - “I want to be a person that you can come to with anything.”
    (18:00) - Baggage and wounds - “We've all got this problem, which is life is fucking painful and really ruinous. And we all are trying to figure out the best strategies and some people's strategies are more socially acceptable.”
    (22:22) - The relationship between judgement and control - “We put all these things up that make us think we're in control of the universe. Then a fucking hurricane comes and your whole house blows up.”
    (24:31) - Insecurity begets judgement - “Really secure people, they're really interesting in how they deal with the world. I've always admired that they don't have that judgment.”
    (30:20) - Self judgment and the judgment paradox - “There is an element of like your judgment doesn't matter, but then it also does to keep you in society a little bit.”
    (34:36) - Judgment needs to be looked at more closely - “You’ve just got to keep investigating it and keep accessing your humanity in order to understand that you are the same as everybody else and you also have the capacity to do those things.”

    Judgement, Part 1

    Judgement, Part 1

    The 2 LADS start this 2-parter off with a discussion on the never-ending stress of pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone while Leggy checks in at a 2 and a 9. Then Daniel and Leggy dive into a deeper discussion on judgment and whether it’s helpful, relevant or even necessary in modern society. The 2 LADS also talk about what makes Leggy act like a lizard, judgement loops, narcissists and sociopaths. And as is becoming a bit of a pattern, Leggy judges Daniel’s mic etiquette. So stick around and then stay tuned for Part 2 out next week with more on the topic of judgement.
    Also in this episode, the 2 LADS introduce the question they will discuss in a bonus episode for their Patrons: What thing are they neglecting most in their lives right now.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:40) - The Check In - “I'm a 9. Actually, this is weird because I'm a 9, but then I'm also sometimes a 2.”
    (21:27) - Bonus Question for Patrons - “What area of your life are you most neglecting right now?”
    (24:05) - Why Daniel is angry - “We wanted to do judgment because I’m feeling a lot of judgment, and therefore I'm judging.”
    (26:28) - Judgment is narcissistic - “I wrote, ‘I don't have anything to prove to you.’ And it felt like such a relief.”
    (31:57) - Leggy’s thoughts on where morals come from - “I don't think you're born good. I think you are born to try to stay alive.”
    (36:54) - Is judgement appropriate any longer? - “We're not investigating that judgement. We're just going, ‘That person is a bad person for doing that.’”
    (41:26) - Leveling up from judgment - “You're human. You're going to have a reaction. I think that maybe it's about commitment to come back to reassess things as you've calmed down.”

    Addiction, Part 2

    Addiction, Part 2

    In this second part of the 2 LADS’ discussion on addiction, Leggy goes deeper into his own journey with drugs and alcohol, from working out why he couldn’t walk away from drugs in his teens and twenties to how he thinks about addiction now and what has helped him move past it. The 2 LADS also talk about the role pain and trauma play in addiction and the pattern of seeking short-term relief over truly facing trauma and healing the pain that comes from it. Daniel also talks about finding balance and what he thinks we should all be doing to move forward as a society that holds space for people struggling with addiction. Join the discussion now for all that and more.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:50) - The relationship between pleasure and pain - “They are located in the same part of your brain, so the amount of pleasure that you feel is directly proportional to the pain.”
    (03:58) - Striving for balance - “If you let me into the candy store, I'm going to eat all of it.”
    (07:09) - Leggy’s journey with addiction - “When I first took speed when I was 16, why was it that I spent three days awake doing speed and all my mates went home?”
    (17:31) - Addiction is a symptom of trauma - “You have to feel the pain in order to heal the wound, and so the addiction part, the thing that's shutting down the pain, is selling you out of the healing.”
    (23:12) - Getting past addiction - “When you're on the rock bottom, you know everybody don't like you. A lot of people are not trusting you. You probably own people money. You've let people down. Everyone's sick of you, right? You go into an AA room and they welcome you in and they treat you like a human.”
    (30:42) - On self protection - “It's about commitment. To know that you can commit to something and give it your all and not hedge your bets because the hedging of the bets is part of a fear of the failure.”
    (34:04) - Connection is a path to healing - “The tribe we're trying to evolve as will only get better with knowledge of self-love. And the addictions that we're all in will only be healed by vulnerability, honesty and transparency.”
    (36:20) - It’s easier to stay where you’re at and not grow - “It really is hard. And every time we go through a layer, there is another layer. It's ongoing.”
    (37:13) - Addiction affects everything - “Everything that we do, there's this addiction thing attached to it. How does addiction affect love? How does addiction affect my career? How does my addiction affect my health and fitness?”

    Addiction, Part 1

    Addiction, Part 1

    In the first of another two-parter, Leggy and Daniel go hard, vulnerable and honest about another not-so-small topic: addiction. There’s a lot to cover so Leggy’s story will have to wait until Part 2 (out next week!), but first, in this extended first half, the 2 LADS discuss Daniel’s thoughts on addiction, from believing everybody’s an addict to how he came to recognize it in himself and begin to work through it. The 2 LADS also discuss comfort zones, being young and ruthless, training for a triathlon and the surprising silver lining to struggling with extreme addiction. Settle in because tackling the topic of addiction is going to take a while.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:47) - The Check In - “When you hug Leggy, you feel worse. It's like hugging a bag of hammers.”
    (04:41) - Thriving vs. being in survival mode - “I've always been in a state of making it up on the fly and I don't know what it is to be living or what it is to take care of myself.”
    (12:29) - Leggy’s comfort zone - “I think I’ve honestly jeopardized my career over the years because I always would rather be in my comfort zone.”
    (20:31) - Failure knocking the lads down a peg - “I was ruthless. I had no experience so I was just like, ‘I'm the shit.’ I was just the biggest narcissist in the world.”
    (26:57) - Daniel’s definition of addiction - “Addiction is not necessarily the pursuit of a high, it's more the escape of pain.”
    (28:32) - Daniel’s story of facing addiction - “For me, drugs and sex became a way of just feeling something different for a little while and it felt ‘in control.’”
    (35:10) - Daniel’s want to be impressive - “My biggest struggle my whole life is that I'm so fucking desperate to be respected.”
    (43:21) - Combating addiction with community - “God knows where I'd be if I didn't have you lads.”
    (46:17) - Leggy asks Daniel if he’s an addict - “I think everybody's an addict.”
    (53:18) - Addiction forces self reflection - “God help you if you're in the middle zone where it doesn't show up as that bad that you have to look at it. And that happens to a lot of people, and it's like what do you do then?”
