We can't stop talking about the enneagram, so we made a podcast to get it all out of our system.

    3: CONTENTMENT FEELS SUSPICIOUS!!!!

    3: CONTENTMENT FEELS SUSPICIOUS!!!!

    This week, we're joined by the author of The Enneagram of Discernment, and the co-host of Fathoms: An Enneagram Podcast, Drew Moser! He's an enneagram 3, which means he's always struggling just to BE COOL MAN and enjoy his accomplishments, or even the accomplishments of others. We talked about what he's like in stress, and then we get down to business. 
    The business? Well, it's all over the place this episode, guys and gals. There are lows and highs. We process a recent enneagram-world-scandal which honestly isn't funny at all, and then we take a hard left turn into a segment where we make some hard decisions about weddings, videogames, and candy. This stuff is important. 
    Finally, we run down the not-at-all-timely 9 reasons each number would get canceled. Listen, you're not going to like yours okay. It's going to keep you up at night. Don't say we didn't warn you.

    6: I PREDICTED EVERY TERRIBLE THING!!!!

    6: I PREDICTED EVERY TERRIBLE THING!!!!

    This week, we talk to Nick Rynerson, stalwart 6 on the enneagram. He is Richard’s boss, the Chief Creative Officer at Useful Group, and host of the podcast Burn After Listening, where he ponders music. (Subscribe here)
    Look, it can be hard being a 6. Are you phobic, or counterphobic? Both? We ask Nick the same question and get to the bottom of what fear looks like in someone who’s ready for almost every disaster known to man. Financial decline, worldwide pandemic, civil unrest, freaking aliens, Nick is ready for it all. Just don’t tell him his musical hero died. He’s not ready for that. Even if they’re freakin 66 years old.

    Black Lives Matter.

    Black Lives Matter.

    We don't have much to say beyond that in this moment, but here are some podcasts and books that do:
    Podcasts:

    Sounds of Justice

    Truth’s Table

    Pass the Mic

    1619

    Code Switch

    United We Pray


    Books:

    The Color of Compromise - Jemar Tisby

    The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness - Michelle Alexander


    Finally, we recognize that our audience may not all be on the same page regarding these issues. If that is the case for you, we sincerely recommend starting here: White Fragility: Why it's so hard for white people to talk about racism. The print version is sold out, but the Kindle version has INFINITE COPIES available.

    No Chill Coronagram: The "Bleep You Enneathought Spectacular!!"

    No Chill Coronagram: The "Bleep You Enneathought Spectacular!!"

    In these uncertain times, the last thing we need is some do-gooder newsletter telling us how to feel or what to do. That’s why we’re aiming all our firepower at the Enneathought Bot who won’t leave us the bleep alone for just one bleeping day!!
    If you’re not familiar with the Enneathought, imagine getting a fortune cookie fortune sent straight to your email inbox every day, only it knew you well enough to make you feel like crap, and also doesn't read the room AT ALL. 
    With the help of Fun Sexy Bible Time’s Casey Haas (an Enneagram 5!), we bring some of the worst Enneathoughts to the table and tear them to shreds.

    8: I HAVE THE CONFIDENCE OF A MEDIOCRE WHITE MAN!!!!

    8: I HAVE THE CONFIDENCE OF A MEDIOCRE WHITE MAN!!!!

    It’s about that time! Yep, it’s time for an enneagram 8 to dispel all the myths about 8s in one fell swoop, and single-handedly set us straight! And somehow, we felt good about it!

    Let’s be honest, sometimes the enneagram can be so white. Karen González, a writer, speaker, and immigrant advocate tells us why the enneagram seems so dominated by the majority culture, and that leads to a whole wild conversation about nature/nurture/sexism/racism/existentialism just kidding about that last one.
    Karen González just does stuff! She was exactly what we need right now.
    BUT ALSO: 8’s in stress can be paranoid, secretive, and fearful! It’s a whole thing! Find out more.
    OH, AND: What enneathoughts make Karen FURIOUS?
    PLUS THIS: We type The Good Place characters! This was inevitable.

I’m a fan

I have no idea why it works, but it does. I’m usually not a fan of making jokes about something so important, but I actually love the lightheartedness you bring to the subject. Please keep making episodes and come have a live show in Nashville. No way you’re guessing my type from this.

Awesome Show!

To the person reading this review:

This podcast in particular isn’t full of ennea-experts or Christian focused coaches like you might be used to listening to (unless you already listen to the “Millenneagram” Podcast or something similar 🤷🏾‍♂️) but, if you’re looking for a good laugh, a new fun and “no chill” perspective of the enneagram, or ran out of enneagram stuff to help soothe your enneagram interests (like I did) this podcast may be for you.

If you’re new to the enneagram:

This podcast may not be the best place to start if you’re a beginner because they don’t get into the fundamental or deep enneagram stuff but, it’s still a great resource and an intriguing podcast to listen to. Truly, I can say that from every video I watched, book read, or podcasts listened to I always get a new fresh and diverse perspective and learn so much more about the enneagram. I’ve learned that the enneagram can really help with understanding more about you for growth/healing and others as well. So good luck and make sure you come back when you’ve learned a little more. It’s also great if you can get your friends and family into it too!

To the hosts:

Hello Bethany and Richard! At first I wasn’t so sure about the enneagram but, for the past 6 months or so, I’ve started working on learning more and more about the enneagram - I’ve watched YouTube videos, read books, and listened to a lot podcasts (Seriously I’ve lost count of how many “help!” 😂) but I’m still not sure about my type. I think I’ve narrowed it down some but I thought maybe you guys could help me? Also sorry if this was too long I wanted to give a good review and also enough info about me.

Thank you for making this podcast! :)
