187-Connecting to Joy and Pleasure

March 20, 2017

I'll be the first to admit I don't have a great relationship with joy. A conversation I had this week (up on Thursday) made me think long and hard about what it I actually want and hwere the roots of deep joy and pleasure come from.

186-The OA with Kim, Rachael, and Neil

March 17, 2017

What do you do when you find a Netflix show you love/hate/binge-watch over three days? You invite a bunch of people over to dissect every little detail of course! Kimberley, Rachael, and Neil join me to offer points of view on whether we think this show is brilliant, or just annoyingly vague.

184-Why Do Anything?

March 7, 2017

Today is a bit of an annual general meeting of the podcast, or a state of the union address? We're slightly shifting gears here at the podcast, or focusing a little bit. Nuanced conversation about life's big (and little) questions must prevail.

181-Justin Gaar-Filmmaker

February 24, 2017

What started out as a relatively simple phone call, sent filmmaker Justin Gaar on a three-year journey into the heart and mind of Christo Roppolo, a man who films UFOs. But a simple editing project soon became much more: a story of loneliness, heartbreak, belief, empathy and ultimately, of someone who is so unapologetically himself, he’s almost more unbelievable than the UFOs he films. But as Justin tells us, we’re just in the presence of one the great characters and loveable weirdos of our time.

You can watch 'The Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs' on Netflix

180-UFOs

February 20, 2017

Today on the show, I'm talking about a really sweet new documentary called 'The Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs,' which is a beautiful and somewhat tragic tale of the actual people who believe in conspiracy theories. Also, some guest updates!

179-Diana Helps Us Work Out the Heart Junk

February 17, 2017

A longstanding theme of this show has been trying to solve life's questions, mysteries, and troubles. But as my friend Diana suggests, maybe we're trying to solve life, which isn't possible. We talk about her background in psychology and counselling and how we can truly help ourselves.
