In this episode, Sam & Andy enter into the realm of self reflection. They begin by trying to nail down a definition before explaining their individual self reflection journeys. After debating what it is and its purpose, the skill development and habit formation component forms a major part of the discussion. This episode intends to provide useful advice for people struggling with their own reflective behaviours.

El Camino de Santiago
In this rather peculiar first episode of the new season, Sam and Andy discuss a recent voyage of Sam's, El Camino de Santiago. They cover its practical aspects, spiritual depth and the lasting impact of such a journey.
As usual, they manage to delve into tangent topics around living a good life and defining success for yourself.
The Philosophy of Leisure
In our least relevant episode, we explore what is leisure, its history and what is the purpose of it. As usual, we manage to get on to self-awareness, identity and everything else :)
Enjoy and join the discord if you fancy.
In this episode, Sam & Andy explore the concept of digital minimalism. What does it mean, how does our current relationship with technology look and how do we strike the right balance of use of technology.
In parts this turned more into a discussion around the negatives (and positives) of social media.

The Art of Learning
In this episode, we discuss the topic of how to approach learning - how to choose what to learn and then how to optimise the process of learning itself. As usual, the episode is coupled with our divergent discussion into related topics.
