    Episode 30 - A Stoic Execution

    Episode 30 - A Stoic Execution

    Episode 30 brought to you by mostly going through the motions of processing my father's recent passing which brought up a lot of curious thoughts around my being adopted by him and what that actually now means.

    It's a touch more solemn than usual, but them's the breaks.

    This was streamed/recorded live on my youtube channel: https://youtu.be/POd3zKF-Y24

    Episode 29 - Perfection is Death

    Episode 29 - Perfection is Death

    Good morrow! Fair listeners...it's been a while. A few months in fact, since the last episode. Life in the land of Shiggi got tough and I decided I needed to take some time away from basically everything and look after myself for a bit.

    That all worked out great as you discover in this super short 15min episode.

    The biggest takeaway is a short summary of a January challenge I did and had people do a few years ago that had you follow 3 basic mantras for a whole month:

    1. Speak no bullsh*t
    2. Eat no bullsh*t
    3. Move your body (just a little bit)

    Super simple, but a far easier and encouraging way to get yourself through the year than most.

    Get stuck in - let me know what you thought. New episodes are now up every Monday at 2pm GMT.

    Episode 28 - Climbing While Black + Your business is YOUR business

    Episode 28 - Climbing While Black + Your business is YOUR business

    Once again, I thought I didn't have much to say - and once again the day before I found I was thinking about a multitude of things. This was helped by taking over Ex TeamGB climbing member Louis Parkinson's Instagram page for a day. I shared 4 long posts covering thoughts about rock climbing (whilst Black) which you can find as a collected article here: Contemplating Climbing whilst Black
    The second part, I wax lyrical about the spectrum of full-time work versus being self-employed and how it's ok to flip from one to another and back again if you want.

    Episode 27 - Mel Robbins, 100 BJJ Sessions (Revisited) and Habits.

    Episode 27 - Mel Robbins, 100 BJJ Sessions (Revisited) and Habits.

    I think I just about had nothing to say this morning, but dragging my butt to online Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class spurred this episode's content into existence! So, settle in and let's discuss why Mel Robbins' 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 method is absolute gold. How the importance of the previous "100 Sessions" comes into the spotlight in the depths of a pandemic. And experience how one's train of thought can completely crap out, if you haven't fed yourself properly. 
    The two podcasts I guested on recently are from Dennis Ball on his YouTube Channel (there are 3 parts!) and The Liminal Podcast

    Episode 26 - "Anti-Racism" and "What do you do to be happy"

    Episode 26 - "Anti-Racism" and "What do you do to be happy"

    It's a Wednesday! And my brain...poor thing, needs a gym or something! Anyway, it's been a curious old week including conversations with old school friends which ended up in a self-schooling around Anti-Racism and really looking at what you do to be happy...not having happiness, genuinely BEING happy...

    Mine definitely includes a bit of Jamiroquai

    Episode 25 - A logical New Age Hippie (and her baby steps into the world)

    Episode 25 - A logical New Age Hippie (and her baby steps into the world)

    Happy Solstice! Once again, this episode came up out of the blue, orange, yellow, red, green, purple...well, it's certainly rainbow-powered. Carrying on in the fashion of wanting to at least help one person understand a little bit more about themselves or some aspect of the world (and maybe feel a little bit less crazy) - this episode surfs the surface of my journey into more "New Age" experiences. Kambo and Iboga are probably not part of your everyday conversations, but they were certainly key ceremonies I took part in and helped me understand myself a little bit more...
