Welcome to Uncommon Courage, the podcast, where we’ll be having the conversations we need to be having as members of the human collective. We are all being called upon to step up and lead – with kindness, big hearts and unshakable courage – because right now, we have an opportunity to redress what we got wrong in the past, as well as deal with the disruptions we face today, to create a better world for all. However, if we are completely truthful, the biggest challenge we face is believing we can do it – believing in our ability to create massive change. But everyone knows you can’t achieve anything significant without guts, determination, and of course, the courage to keep driving towards the goal, regardless of how hard the journey is! Uncommon Courage will feature global conversations determined to contribute to creating a better future for all life on earth. Ideas, solutions, arguments and laughs - it’ll all be part of the journey. It is time for that which is uncommon to become common.

    How I deal with the bleakness

    How I deal with the bleakness

    I’ve been a bit blue for a couple of months now. It’s really out of character for me, but I have a strategy I use to help myself break free. However, when you’re feeling like this – whether there’s an external cause or just the reality of the time we’re all going through – the most important thing is not to fight it. Sinking into the emotions, feeling them and when you’re ready, breaking free is the most important part. Getting stuck there is where the real damage is done. 
    However, the challenge is, we don’t live in a world that talks about feeling our emotions so much. We have to be positive all the time, right? But when we do this, it means we resist what we are feeling, and I know when I do this, it lasts longer. What you resist, persists! 
    I decided to do this, because I know many others are feeling this way right now, and I hope by attempting to share how I approach it, I can help others break free. Let me know what you think?
    And if you’re a pal and I’ve been unresponsive, just know it’s because of this. It’s hard to reach out and be social, when you know you’ve just got to go inside and get yourself sorted.

    The Know Show – theme: do we really have free will? with Andrew Bryant

    The Know Show – theme: do we really have free will? with Andrew Bryant

    Welcome to The Know Show. This week we’ll be joined by Andrew Bryant, a global executive leadership coach, advisor to C-Suite leaders, author and keynote speaker on self-leadership. The concept of free will has been discussed and challenged through the centuries. It’s at the heart of our religions, a central element in how our societies run, and it’s also critical in how our technology is (or isn’t) designed to ensure this idea is honored. But is it something we really have, or is it just an idea we hold onto, even if it is not true? We’re going deep. 
    The Know Show is a Livestream held every Friday, where Andrea T Edwards, Tim Wade and Joe Augustin review the news that’s getting everyone’s attention, as well as perhaps what requires our attention. We’ll talk about what it means to us, the world and we hope to inspire great conversations on the news that matters to all of us. 
    The Know Show is based on Andrea T Edwards Weekend Reads, which get published every Saturday on andreatedwards.com, and covers the climate crisis, Covid 19, topical moments in the world, global politics, business, social issues and passion/humor/history. Join us.

    Getting your mind right

    Getting your mind right

    With Ferenc Nyiro, The Little Bird House, Phuket, Thailand.
    Our mind is a curious thing and most accept our thoughts determine our reality – yes? But many continue to believe it’s outside of our control. Not forgetting, these last couple of years have been pretty intense on the thinking front!! 
    But we can control our thoughts. It requires a lot of introspection and laser focused attention on the thoughts that rattle around in our brain every day, and if we get good at it, we can change ourselves in deep and fundamental ways. We can break free of thought patterns that hold us back and we learn to take responsibility for our lives too.
    It’s a process, but boy is it liberating when you get good at watching your own thoughts. Assessing them, considering where they come from, and sometimes, you have no idea at all why you think certain ways. It’s only by being able to look at your thoughts objectively that you can start to see the patterns.
    When I recorded this podcast, I thought we were going to talk about surviving a pandemic as an artist, but when you speak with Ferenc, you never know where it will go and I’m happy we went in this direction. I love having chats with Ferenc and hope you enjoy it too. 
    If you’re interested in his art or his WTF pants, please do check out his social media accounts below. The painted fishermen pants are brilliant and perfect gifts.

    Welcome to The Know Show. This week Andrea Edwards and Joe Augustin will be joined by Marc Allen, Joanne Flinn, Robert Kirubi and Susanna Hasenoehrl The Sustainability Speaker, to discuss week two of Cop26.

    We’ll share our overall impressions and take-aways, whether the pathway to 1.5C is even remotely possible, as well as some of the key issues discussed, including adaptation, how women are disproportionately impacted by climate change, the science crucial to limiting the temperature rise to 1.5C, the mass market for zero-emission vehicles and 'green shipping corridors', what it all means to cities, regions and the built environment., and more. There is a LOT to consider.

    Are you worried about the impact of climate change on your kid's future?

    Are you worried about the impact of climate change on your kid's future?

    As parents, Steve and I talk a lot about the decisions we need to make today, from a climate emergency perspective, to ensure we can map out a secure future for our children - or as secure a future as is possible. In many ways, we’re lucky, because we have options to live in different parts of the world. The majority of humanity do not have these options, which is why it’s critical we act now to reduce the severity of the climate emergency. 
    We’re doing a terrible job with refugees now. How bad will it be when millions or billions of climate refugees turn up on our doorstep? We can not let that happen. 
    Every increase in temperature means an increase in impact on our children’s future lives, and while so much is unknown, and the outcomes uncertain, Steve and I are actively paying attention, so we can be prepared to make the right decisions for them. It’s definitely not about us. It’s all about them now. 
    So are you having the same conversations? Or perhaps it’s too confronting? When I first started having these conversations with Steve, it was definitely confronting for him. He wasn’t paying attention like I was, but as we’ve explored this more – especially in the last 12 months to two years - we are becoming more aligned on the need to make the right decisions now, to ensure they have the best chance in their future. This includes the skills they need to develop, how we speak to them about the climate emergency, and so much more. 
    We’d love to know if sharing this conversation with you is valuable, so please, drop me a line. You can find me @AndreaTEdwards or @UncommonCourage. Keen to talk and explore this topic more. I also know, that once you think about it from this point of view, you start to think about the climate emergency with a whole new lens. It gives you the impetus to act, because you do not want that for your children.
    The job needs to be done now, not when they’re old enough. We’ll be out of time if we wait for the kids to grow up, and that is absolutely out of the question for me. It’s our job to do, all of us.
