Rank #1: The Beginning of Infinity, Explanations That Transform the World, David Deutsch

Podcast cover
Read more
The Beginning of Infinity, Explanations That Transform the World, David Deutsch,

A bold and all-embracing exploration of the nature and progress of knowledge from one of today's great thinkers. 

Throughout history, mankind has struggled to understand life's mysteries, from the mundane to the seemingly miraculous.

Our guest is a multiple award-winning pioneer in the field of quantum computation and argues that explanations have a fundamental place in the universe. They have unlimited scope and power to cause change, and the quest to improve them is the basic regulating principle not only of science but of all successful human endeavour.

This stream of ever improving explanations has infinite reach. We are subject only to the laws of physics, and they impose no upper boundary to what we can eventually understand, control, and achieve.

He applies that worldview to a wide range of issues and unsolved problems, from creativity and free will to the origin and future of the human species.

We welcome David Deutsch, Fellow of the Royal Society, a pioneer in quantum computing, visiting Professor of physics at the Centre for Quantum Computation at Oxford University, multiple TED Talker, optimist and author of The Beginning of Infinity,  Explanations That Transform the World.

We discuss:

What David calls good explanations.
Error as unavoidable in the growth of knowledge.
Fallibilism
Education
Creativity
Artificial Intelligence
The misconception that knowledge needs authority to be genuine or reliable
All scientific theories are testable conjectures
Every explanation begins with conjecture
The growth of knowledge consists of correcting misconceptions in our theories
The Principle of Mediocrity
The Spaceship Earth metaphor
We touch very lightly on the Multiverse

Podcast cover
Read more
Experience is the new battlefield. Satisfaction is not enough anymore. Customer experience is the main driver of future loyalty and will turn your customers into raving fans.

Our guest is Chief Xperience Officer (CXO) and Managing Partner at Solutions Unlimited. He is the author of the wonderful book Start Reverse. In this must-listen chat,

Andre tells us about the philosophy of starting in reverse, of flipping marketing on its head to become “customering”. Customering means starting with the customer every touchpoint of your brand. Andre tells us this means empowering your people and including them as main vehicles to the customer.

We talk experience economy, in-store experience, business as theatre, leaders as directors and workers as cast members.

We chat about the purpose economy, including how we must have our own personal purpose to align with that of an organisation.

Andre tells us about EPIC leadership, reverse leadership, game-changing brands, game-changer principles and thinking in 5D. This is an awesome interview.

"There are no markets; there are only customers! Therefore, we must stop marketing in all of its manifestations. Think reverse and start customering.”

Rank #3: The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth - Amy C. Edmondson

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode offers practical guidance for teams and organisations who are serious about success in the modern economy. With so much riding on innovation, creativity, and spark, it is essential to attract and retain quality talent—but what good does this talent do if no one is able to speak their mind? The traditional culture of "fitting in" and "going along" spells doom in the knowledge economy. Success requires a continuous influx of new ideas, new challenges, and critical thought, and the interpersonal climate must not suppress, silence, ridicule or intimidate. Not every idea is good, and yes there are stupid questions, and yes dissent can slow things down, but talking through these things is an essential part of the creative process. People must be allowed to voice half-finished thoughts, ask questions from left field, and brainstorm out loud; it creates a culture in which a minor flub or momentary lapse is no big deal, and where actual mistakes are owned and corrected, and where the next left-field idea could be the next big thing. Today we explore a culture of psychological safety and provide a blueprint for bringing it to life. We explore the link between psychological safety and high performance Create a culture where it's "safe" to express ideas, ask questions, and admit mistakes nurture the level of engagement and candour required in today's knowledge economy How can we fertilise creativity, clarify goals, achieve accountability, redefine leadership, and much more. Psychological safety helps bring about this most critical transformation. We welcome the author The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth and the mother of the concept of Psychological safety, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Amy C.

Rank #6: The Yes Brain Child: More Resilient, Independent and Creative Kids with Dr Tina Payne Bryson

Podcast cover
Read more
“Every single child has an inner spark–a combination of a unique temperament and various experiences–and we want to fan that flame to help kids become happy, healthy, and internally driven to be the ‘best them’ they can become.” - Dr Tina Payne Bryson and Dr Dan Siegel

Children can often act out or shut down when faced with a setback or a tricky issue like homework, food or screen time. Our guest calls the ‘No Brain’ response. But you can help develop the ability to cope, solve their own problems and thrive by nurturing the ‘Yes Brain’.

Drawing on her successful work with thousands of parents and children from all backgrounds, our guest provides the advice, tools and activities to help parents and children of all ages.

This is what the ‘Yes Brain’ approach looks like in action:

*A 5-year-old boy thinks about his first day at school and says, ‘I’m nervous but I’ll give it a try.’
*An 8-year-old girl says, ‘I’d like to join the football team, even though none of my friends like football.’
*A 14-year-old boy looks at a test he’s earned a D- for and says, ‘That’s not the mark I wanted but it’s not the end of the world. I’ll ask the teacher how I can improve.’

I would like to add to all that a Yes Brain is what we need in business environments today. A mind open to possibility and with the ability to control emotion and recognise when fear is a blocker. So please do listen to this show as a parent, a corporate innovator, change-maker or out of pure curiosity.

We welcome the author of “The Yes Brain Child: Help Your Child be More Resilient, Independent and Creative”, Dr Tina Payne Bryson, thank you

We discuss:
Yes and No brains
The Prefrontal Cortex
Neuroplasticity
Social and Emotional Intelligence
Response Techniques
Empathy
Attuned Communication
Self Regulation
Overcoming Fear
Building Resilience
Intuition and Morality
Integration
Tolerating Discomfort
Perspective
Simple tools to help activate the Yes Brain

Rank #7: EP 123: Finding Time to Lead Seven Practices to Unleash Outrageous Potential with Leslie Peters

Podcast cover
Read more
The world is full of leaders, from newly minted entrepreneurs to highly paid CEOs. There are nearly a quarter million CEOs in America alone. But according to a Gallup report, only one in ten people possess the talent that’s required of a CEO. If 90% of people lack innate management skills, how CEOs succeed?

CEOs can build incredible cultures, grow companies, and enhance the bottom line. But without the right guidance, they can just as easily burn out, cause cultures to stagnate, and lead their organisations to ruin.

Drawing from twenty-plus years of working side by side with today’s top leaders, Leadership expert and author of Finding Time to Lead, Leslie Peters pulls back the leadership curtain to reveal the shifts, practices, and tools that move leaders past the status quo.

We explore:
Why “having all the answers” ultimately sabotages success
How to recognise if busy-ness is, in fact, a sign of anxiety or discomfort
Why there’s no such thing as a perfectly crafted corporate message
How the lack of a counter-narrative can bring a CEO down
How to lead change in a way that brings people along
Three great shifts as leader:
From doing to being
From knowing to understanding
From reacting to responding

Jeff Kreisler is the co-Author of the awesome "Dollars And Sense: How We Misthink Money and How To Spend Smarter" with Dan Ariely.

In a world where people are talking about crypto and digital currencies, we look at the real psychology of money and why and how we spend it.

Jeff Kreisler and Dan Ariely brilliantly give us some great pointers on how we can avoid the many pitfalls and psychological traps behind our spending habits and behaviours.

Money is the top reason for divorce, the number one cause of stress for people and we are demonstrably worse at all kinds of problem-solving when we have money problems on our minds. Money has changed the human condition as much as any other advance—as much as the printing press, the wheel, electricity, and al the tech advances we are now seeing

We look at several of the biases and forces at play behind our financial choices and lack thereof, we discuss the following: Opportunity cost neglect and Alternatives We absolutely must, consciously or not, consider opportunity costs every time we use money.
We should consider the alternatives we are giving up by choosing to spend money now.

The endowment effect, The Ikea effect, Loss Aversion Emotional Accounting; Anchoring Gateway Drugs Virtual Ownership Retirement savings Fairness and effort, Anchoring, Payments, Frictionless. Painless. Thoughtless, The pain of paying, Language and how it affects what we pay.

Rank #10: The Polymath: Unlocking the Power of Human Versatility with author Waqās Ahmed

Podcast cover
Read more
Do you feel restricted by your career or profession?

Do you feel you are not doing what you would really like to do?

Are you good at many things, but feel you cannot do them for fear of appearing odd or going against the grain?

You may just be a Polymath and that is a major gift!

Every human is born with multifarious potential.

Why, then, do parents, schools and employers insist that we restrict our many talents and interests; that we 'specialise' in just one?

We've been sold a myth, that to 'specialise' is the only way to pursue truth, identity, or even a livelihood. Yet specialisation is nothing but an outdated system that fosters ignorance, exploitation and disillusionment and thwarts creativity, opportunity and progress.

Following a series of exchanges with the world's greatest historians, futurists, philosophers and scientists, Waqas Ahmed has weaved together a narrative of history and a vision for the future that seeks to disrupt this prevailing system of unwarranted 'hyper-specialisation.'

In The Polymath, Waqas shows us that there is another way of thinking and being. Through an approach that is both philosophical and practical, he sets out a cognitive journey towards reclaiming your innate polymathic state. Going further, he proposes nothing less than a cultural revolution in our education and professional structures, whereby everyone is encouraged to express themselves in multiple ways and fulfil their many-sided potential. Not only does this enhance individual fulfilment, but in doing so, facilitates a conscious and creative society that is both highly motivated and well equipped to address the complexity of 21st-century challenges.

We discuss:
What is a Polymath?
How did we get to this age of specialisation?
Polymaths through time
Polymathy as a gift
Polymaths in an age of Artificial Intelligence
Educational Reform
Workplace Reform
Social Reform
A cognitive Revolution?

Rank #12: EP 110: The Truth about Consumers and the Psychology of Shopping - Consumer.ology with Philip Graves

Podcast cover
Read more
If we depend on market research to dictate business decisions, today's guest explains how this is a big mistake. Market research cannot predict buying decisions because it focuses on the conscious mind, like most of our daily decisions in life and business. we make them unconsciously.

With corporate risk aversion at an all-time high, it’s no surprise that marketing professionals increasingly reach for market research to support their strategies. Then, if products and marketing campaigns fail, they blame the research.

While this episode is invaluable for all business owners and marketers – it will equally help us understand any customer better, but also understand ourselves.
Today’s guest has had no hesitation in calling out a multi-billion dollar industry for its frailties and suggesting a better way. We welcome consumer behaviour expert and author of the best-seller ‘Consumerology: The Truth about Consumers and the Psychology of Shopping’, Philip Graves

We talk:
Focus groups versus real life situations
Why Asking Is Fruitless
Brand Fails such as New Coke and The Post Office rebranding as Consignia
How brands like Red Bull succeeded in face of bad focus group research
Simplification and Stickiness
The misattributing of consultancy spend
The importance of the entrepreneurial gut feeling
The importance of Social proof
The biases that sway our decisions
The AFECT Model Analysis (of behavioural data) Frame (of mind) “Environment”  “Covert study” “Timeframe”

Rank #13: Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem by Shifting Creative Mindsets with Michael Roberto

Podcast cover
Read more
“A common trend we see is that experts in a field can become dogmatic and close-minded over time and they simply lose some of the intellectual curiosity that they had at the outset of their careers. And because they fail to question certain assumptions that they've made historically they aren’t listening to those new voices.” - Michael Roberto

Today’s episode is an exploration of the creative process and how organisations can clear the way for innovation. 
In many organisations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. 

Managers and executives often reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. 
Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. 

In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. 
Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework.

Rank #14: Master Your Mind: Counterintuitive Strategies to Refocus Your Runaway Brain with Roger Seip

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s episode offers a bit of perspective and a lot of insight for anyone seeking long-term success.
Success in business is spelled M-O-R-E: better results, faster growth, more revenue, greater efficiency.
Do more. Make more. Achieve more.
And do it now. Eventually, ambition turns to stress, then to frenzy, then to emptiness as once-ambitious workers endlessly trudge the hamster wheel chasing the next promotion.
While top-level performance is the holy grail of business at all levels, there is another, much better way to achieve it: slow down.
Yes, you read that right--S-L-O-W. This is your permission to jump off of the hamster wheel.

Slowing down is not a luxury, it is a necessity. A frenetic brain simply doesn't perform at optimal levels. By maintaining a snail's pace, you actually achieve better results--at rocket speed--because you're firing on all cylinders. You'll think of new things, approach old problems from new perspectives, and breathe a breath of fresh air into everything you do. This book shows you how to achieve this state of steady, sustainable fire, and how to get further by crawling than you ever did while attempting to fly.

Learn how slowing down can lead to better, faster results
Achieve optimal performance thought patterns
Enhance your creativity and effectiveness
Build energy, revenue, and good health in a self-sustaining way

You know you're capable of more, but the stress is eating away at your body, your brain, and your soul. Relax, take a deep breath, and buckle down. Clear your mind, and then put it to work. Stop juggling and start doing. Master Your Mind shows you how to supercharge your trajectory by taking it S-L-O-W.

Podcast cover

From rogues to role models: Be More Pirate reveals the radical strategies of Golden Age pirates, and updates them into clear solutions for making your mark on the 21st Century.

Be More Pirate draws parallels between the strategy and innovation of legends like Henry Morgan with modern-day rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala and Blockchain, and reveals how to apply their tactics to life and work today.

Social entrepreneur and author Sam Conniff Allende shares the parallels and the principles we can draw to make a difference in our world today for the generations of tomorrow.

Sam shares the 5 key principles practised by pirates, which we can use today:
Rebel - stand up to status quo
Rewrite - bend and rewrite rules
Reorganise - collaborate to achieve scale
Redistribute - fairness, share power
Retell - weaponise your story to establish and spread their legacy

Sam leaves us with the profound message of C.S. Lewis “Good and evil increase at compound interest. That’s why the little decisions we make every day are of infinite importance. the smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may go on to victories you never dreamed of”.

The End of Mental Illness with Dr. Daniel Amen

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s episode introduces New hope for those suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, addictions, PTSD, ADHD and more.

Though incidence of these conditions is skyrocketing, for the past four decades standard treatment hasn’t much changed, and success rates in treating them have barely improved, either. Meanwhile, the stigma of the “mental illness” label―damaging and devastating on its own―can often prevent sufferers from getting the help they need.

Today’s guest is an innovator in his field, a Brain specialist and bestselling author who is on the forefront of a new movement within medicine and related disciplines that aims to change all that. Today we will draw on the latest findings of neuroscience to challenge an outdated psychiatric paradigm. It will help us all take control and improve the health of our own brains, minimising or reversing conditions that may prevent us from living a full and emotionally healthy life.

The End of Mental Illness will help us discover:
Why labelling someone as having a “mental illness” is not only inaccurate but harmful
Why standard treatment may not have helped you or a loved one―and why diagnosing and treating you based on your symptoms alone so often misses the true cause of those symptoms and results in poor outcomes
At least 100 simple things you can do yourself to heal your brain and prevent or reverse the problems that are making you feel sad, mad, or bad
How to identify your “brain type” and what you can do to optimise your particular type
Where to find the kind of health provider who understands and uses the new paradigm of brain health

It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Daniel Amen, multiple bestselling author, changemaker and author of “The End of Mental Illness: How Neuroscience Is Transforming Psychiatry and Helping Prevent or Reverse Mood and Anxiety Disorders, ADHD, Addictions, PTSD, Psychosis, Personality Disorders, and More”.

Zest: How to Squeeze the Max out of Life with author Andy Cope

Podcast cover
Read more
'ZEST' equates to zing, enthusiasm, energy, gusto, eagerness, zeal and fervour.
It also suggests a tang, a sharpness. It's the opposite of bland.
Today’s book called ZEST is not just a book on personal development. There are an awful lot of those.
Zest is a catalyst, a spark that ignites your remembering of what makes you, in a word, you.
It drives you to rethink, rejuvenate and reinvent. It also contains a touch of the revolutions.

Have you, as a grown-up, fallen into the trap of becoming a Groan-up?
You know you should try to make the best of things, but oftentimes you don't know what your "best" is anymore.
It's strange.
You used to know. What happened?
Was it the years of social conformity?
There is a whole beige generation out there - a generation that has lost its identity and forgotten who they once were - buried under the crushing, stifling facades of adulthood.
If only there was a way to unearth your passions, recover the zest for life you once had. Maybe there is.

Zest is a wake-up call for you to explore the formative moments that define your life. It challenges you to believe that your best days are still ahead, to search your soul, to shake things up and bask in the warmth of glorious individuality.

Today’s episode will help us:
Explore the pivotal, defining moments in your life
Examine both the good and bad experiences that define you
Reconnect to the essence of who you are Embrace your quirks, qualities and peculiarities
Determine to be the person you always wanted to be Zest is your permission to play, your licence to wreak the right kind of havoc.

Moreover, it's not about pretending to be someone you're not, it's about squeezing every last drop out of who you already are.

We welcome, the Author of Zest: How to Squeeze the Max out of Life, Andy Cope

The Molecule of More: How Dopamine Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity with Daniel Z. Lieberman

Podcast cover
Read more
Why are we obsessed with the thing as we want - only to be bored when we get them? 
Why is addiction perfectly logical to an addict? 
Why does love change so quickly from passion to indifference? 
Why are some people, die-hard liberals and others hardcore conservatives? 
Why are we always hopeful for solutions even in the darkest times—and so good at figuring them out? 

The answer is found in a single chemical in your brain: dopamine.
Dopamine ensured the survival of early man.
Thousands of years later, it is the source of our most basic behavioUrs and cultural ideas—and progress itself. 

Dopamine is the chemical of desire that always asks for more—more stuff, more stimulation, more surprises.

In pursuit of these things, it is undeterred by emotion, fear, or morality.

We welcome the author of “The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity—and will Determine the Fate of the Human Race.” Daniel Z. Lieberman

Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human with Richard Wrangham

Podcast cover
Read more
Today's guest argues that it was cooking that caused the extraordinary transformation of our ancestors from apelike beings to Homo erectus.

At the heart of this episode lies an explosive new idea: the habit of eating cooked rather than raw food permitted the digestive tract to shrink and the human brain to grow, helped structure human society, and created the male-female division of labour. As our ancestors adapted to using fire, humans emerged as "the cooking apes”.

Covering everything from food-labelling to sexual division of labour to raw-food faddists, Catching Fire offers a startlingly original argument about how we came to be the social, intelligent, and sexual species we are today.

A fundamental question that every culture answers in a different way, but only science can truly decide and one today’s guest deeply explore is What made us human?

Our guest’s work proposes a new answer. He is a true changemaker, driven by curiosity and believes the transformative moment that gave rise to the genus Homo, one of the great transitions in the history of life, stemmed from the control of fire and the advent of cooked meals.

Fire was our first technology. Cooking increased the value of our food. It changed our bodies, our brains, our use of time, and our social lives. It made us into consumers of external energy and thereby created an organism with a new relationship to nature, dependent on fuel.

The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth - Amy C. Edmondson

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode offers practical guidance for teams and organisations who are serious about success in the modern economy. With so much riding on innovation, creativity, and spark, it is essential to attract and retain quality talent—but what good does this talent do if no one is able to speak their mind? The traditional culture of "fitting in" and "going along" spells doom in the knowledge economy. Success requires a continuous influx of new ideas, new challenges, and critical thought, and the interpersonal climate must not suppress, silence, ridicule or intimidate. Not every idea is good, and yes there are stupid questions, and yes dissent can slow things down, but talking through these things is an essential part of the creative process. People must be allowed to voice half-finished thoughts, ask questions from left field, and brainstorm out loud; it creates a culture in which a minor flub or momentary lapse is no big deal, and where actual mistakes are owned and corrected, and where the next left-field idea could be the next big thing. Today we explore a culture of psychological safety and provide a blueprint for bringing it to life. We explore the link between psychological safety and high performance Create a culture where it's "safe" to express ideas, ask questions, and admit mistakes nurture the level of engagement and candour required in today's knowledge economy How can we fertilise creativity, clarify goals, achieve accountability, redefine leadership, and much more. Psychological safety helps bring about this most critical transformation. We welcome the author The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth and the mother of the concept of Psychological safety, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Amy C.

Master Your Mind: Counterintuitive Strategies to Refocus Your Runaway Brain with Roger Seip

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s episode offers a bit of perspective and a lot of insight for anyone seeking long-term success.
Success in business is spelled M-O-R-E: better results, faster growth, more revenue, greater efficiency.
Do more. Make more. Achieve more.
And do it now. Eventually, ambition turns to stress, then to frenzy, then to emptiness as once-ambitious workers endlessly trudge the hamster wheel chasing the next promotion.
While top-level performance is the holy grail of business at all levels, there is another, much better way to achieve it: slow down.
Yes, you read that right--S-L-O-W. This is your permission to jump off of the hamster wheel.

Slowing down is not a luxury, it is a necessity. A frenetic brain simply doesn't perform at optimal levels. By maintaining a snail's pace, you actually achieve better results--at rocket speed--because you're firing on all cylinders. You'll think of new things, approach old problems from new perspectives, and breathe a breath of fresh air into everything you do. This book shows you how to achieve this state of steady, sustainable fire, and how to get further by crawling than you ever did while attempting to fly.

Learn how slowing down can lead to better, faster results
Achieve optimal performance thought patterns
Enhance your creativity and effectiveness
Build energy, revenue, and good health in a self-sustaining way

You know you're capable of more, but the stress is eating away at your body, your brain, and your soul. Relax, take a deep breath, and buckle down. Clear your mind, and then put it to work. Stop juggling and start doing. Master Your Mind shows you how to supercharge your trajectory by taking it S-L-O-W.

The Boomerang Principle: Inspire Lifetime Loyalty from Your Employees with Lee Caraher

Podcast cover
Read more
It is rare today for employees to stay with one organisation for the long tenures that were the norm before the Great Recession. In fact, "job hopping" is the new norm, especially for Millennials. So how can you create a culture where people will stay or return?

This episode shares how to leverage this fact rather than fear it. By engendering a lifetime of loyalty from former employees, leaders can see them "return" in the form of customers, partners, clients, advocates, contractors, and even returning employees.

This episode is a pragmatic answer to the outdated corporate mindset around employee turnover. Instead, it shifts the focus to creating lifetime loyalty from your alumni who will bring back business again and again.

We welcome author of “The Boomerang Principle: Inspire Lifetime Loyalty from Your Employees” Lee Caraher

“They’re dead to me.”
“I’m not going to spend all this time training them just to have them leave.”
“They’re job-hoppers who don’t know a good thing when they see it.”
“I’m on a constant training revolving door—as soon as someone’s trained up, they’re out, and I have to start all over again.”
“Why am I wasting my time? It’ll be faster if I do the work myself.”

These are sentiments you have heard many times from entrepreneurs, CEOs, managers, and supervisors when discussing those who are known as “Job Hoppers”.

We discuss:
Intergenerational Teams, organisations, and workplaces
Millennials, Gen X, Y, Z and Boomers
Purpose and Vision
The Boomerang Principle
How to leverage top talent
How to leave well
How to create an alumni of past employees

Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem by Shifting Creative Mindsets with Michael Roberto

Podcast cover
Read more
“A common trend we see is that experts in a field can become dogmatic and close-minded over time and they simply lose some of the intellectual curiosity that they had at the outset of their careers. And because they fail to question certain assumptions that they've made historically they aren’t listening to those new voices.” - Michael Roberto

Today’s episode is an exploration of the creative process and how organisations can clear the way for innovation. 
In many organisations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. 

Managers and executives often reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. 
Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. 

In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. 
Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework.

The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain with Iain McGilchrist

Podcast cover

This episode touches on a pioneering account that sets out to understand the structure of the human brain – the place where mind meets matter. Until recently, the left hemisphere of our brain has been seen as the ‘rational’ side, the superior partner to the right. But is this distinction true?
Drawing on a vast body of experimental research, our guest argues that while our left brain makes for a wonderful servant, it is a very poor master. As he shows, it is the right side, which is the more reliable and insightful. Without it, our world would be mechanistic – stripped of depth, colour, and value.

It's time to reclaim our lives. It's time to take control.

Lifescale is a journey of self-discovery and growth. It's about getting back into balance and remastering our destinies.
Author Brian Solis knows first-hand. He struggled with distraction and all of its ill-effects. To get his life back, he developed a set of techniques, exercises, and thought experiments designed to tame the chaos, and positively and productively navigate our day-to-day lives.

Ending Aging: Reversing Human Aging in Our Lifetime with Dr Aubrey de Grey

Podcast cover
Read more
Nearly all scientists who study the biology of aging agree that we will someday be able to substantially slow down the aging process.

Today’s guest is perhaps the most bullish of all such researchers and believes that the key biomedical technology required to eliminate aging-derived debilitation and death - is now within reach. In his book, he and his research assistant Michael Rae describe the details of this biotechnology.

They explain that the aging of the human body, just like the aging of man-made machines, results from an accumulation of various types of damage. As with man-made machines, this damage can periodically be repaired, leading to the indefinite extension of the machine’s fully functional lifetime, just as is routinely done with classic cars.

We already know what types of damage accumulate in the human body, and we are moving rapidly toward the comprehensive development of technologies to remove that damage. By demystifying aging and its postponement for the nonspecialist reader, our guest systematically dismantles the fatalist presumption that aging will forever defeat the efforts of medical science.

We welcome the author of Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime Dr Aubrey de Grey.

We discuss:

The Sens Mission to end age
The challenges of changing the age paradigm
Decoupling aging from age-related diseases
The 7 common age-related diseases
The 7 solutions to those diseases
