    Ross on the Maintain the Design Podcast - Part 1

    Season 3 Episode 43

    P-Soupers – thanks for tuning in – this week the tables are turned – and it’s me in the hot-seat for the Maintain the Design podcast.

    People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun to nourish your mind to flourish at work.

    So this episode is a bit different – you’ll hear me being interviewed by Thato Mathebula and G-Man, from the Maintain the Design podcast based in Johannesburg. The guys were kind enough to send me their edit of the interview and I've made it into a two parter for the P-Soupers. The questions they asked gave me a great workout on a Sunday morning in January.

    In Part 1- we talk about my work and the science that underpins it, some of the issues I work on, how I manage my own behaviour and I have a go a giving some advice to the younger generation.

    I was really chuffed to be asked by the guys – their podcast is about creative culture and lifestyle in various industries and niches, such as business, art, music and fashion. They say “Not being limited in our topics of conversation is our vibe!” I really like their approach and the range of their exploration. Their recent guests have included the rappers Flow Jones Jr and Jay Hood, a pioneer in South African dance and urban, culture Mernoly Simba and pro league athlete and trainer Chris Rauben

    Ann Parkinson - Part 2

    Ann Parkinson - Part 2

    Season 3 Episode 42

    P-Soupers, thanks for tuning in! This week, it’s part two of my chat with physiotherapist, coach and author, Ann Parkinson.

    In this part of the conversation we dive into Ann’s book, "Dancing Through Life: A guide to living well". We explore the golden thread of compassion that runs through it, chat about the frameworks Ann developed to support the reader, talk about the connection between body and mind and reflect that many people are sitting and working in different environments right now, like the kitchen table or even their bed.

    Reviews are in for Part 1 on my chat with Ann. I think Shelly Prosko from Canada summed it up beautifully. She said on twitter

    "Wonderful episode – such a lovely interview - Ann you are filled with insight, compassion and wisdom."

    Dr Eric Goodman - Part 1

    Season 3 Episode 38

    Hi P-Soupers - this week it's part one of my chat with psychologist, author and anxiety specialist, Dr Eric Goodman.

    You'll hear how Eric developed his career in psychology after his experience of an unfulfilling management role. He shares the evolution of his approach to his specialism – anxiety, OCD, persistent worry, fears and phobias – which amongst other things combines cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, exposure therapy and compassion focussed therapy. We also have a fascinating chat about his use of virtual reality. The conversation leads us up to a glimpse of his book –- Your Anxiety Beast and You: A Compassionate Guide to Living in an Increasingly Anxious World – which we’ll delve into much more in part 2.

Can't get enough!

Ross' bass tones are a complete joy to listen to, and on top of that the content is over the top. Whether you are a professional psychologist, coach, mentor, or someone who just loves personal growth, you can't miss a single episode of this podcast. It will give you ideas on how to make you and your practice better, and keep you on the right path towards reaching the values that you want to. No knowledge of ACT or psychology? No problem! Ross and his guests make it so that everyone can understand while engaging the professional audience at the same time. Not enough words for how much I recommend this podcast. - Cord @vegancoachpraha

Quirky, fun, helpful

I’ve only recently discovered this podcast but it’s been a regular companion on my daily commute ever since. Ross’s style is open, fun, and genuine. He makes potentially heady material practical, accessible, and entertaining. It’s been helpful for me personally and professionally. I often steal ideas from the show in the work with my clients...and I only steal good stuff! 😁

PodReviewz ,

Highly Recommend!!!

This podcast is the perfect mix of knowledge & experience, theory & personal anecdotes, and research & practice. Each episode is thought out without feeling scripted, but packed full of content in short and easy to listen to podcasts. Ross McIntosh is very insightful and knowledgeable, and fun to listen to! I highly recommend it to all!
