Turning Kids Into Grown-Ups. Parenting is fraught with uncertainty, changing with each generation. This hour, TED speakers share ideas about raising kids and how — despite our best efforts — we're probably still doing it wrong. Guests include former Stanford dean Julie Lythcott-Haims, former firefighter Caroline Paul, author Peggy Orenstein, psychologist Dr. Aala El-Khani, and poet Sarah Kay.
Parenting Doesn't Matter (Or Not As Much As You Think). The multibillion-pound parenting industry tells us we can all shape our children to be joyful, resilient and successful. But what if it’s all bunk? Intelligence Squared are bringing together a panel of top geneticists and parenting experts to explore just how important parenting is.Arguing in favour of the motion are Robert Plomin, Psychologist and Professor of Behavioural Genetics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London; and Stuart Ritchie, Lecturer in the Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London.Arguing against the motion were Susan Pawlby, a developmental Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years of experience working with mothers and babies both in clinical and research contexts; and Ann Pleshette Murphy, a therapist, parenting counsellor and advocate for young children and their families.The debate was chaired by Xand van Tulleken, a medical doctor and broadcaster who has presented numerous shows for the BBC and Channel 4, often alongside his identical twin brother Chris.

#107: The Scariest Navy SEAL I've Ever Met...And What He Taught Me. Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. He rarely does interviews, if ever. But a few weeks ago, Jocko ended up staying at my house and we had a caffeinated mind meld. Here's some background... Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi--some of the toughest and sustained combat in the SEAL Teams since Vietnam. Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star. Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world. So why is Jocko opening up? Well, in part, we have mutual friends. Second, he is the co-author of an incredible new book — Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win -- which I've been loving. Trust me. Buy it. This is his first mainstream interview and one you won't want to miss. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at www.fourhourworkweek.com/podcast.

Rank #1: Tiny Houses. Pimped-out tiny houses have been popping up all over the country.The movement seems like a natural fit for Kiwis, harking back to our rural roots, but does that extend to urban settings?In the final Superfad episode, hosts Laura Walters and Katie Kenny move in to a tiny house on the prarie. They learn how its owner and builder pieced it together for a mere $8000. They also discuss the fad with a young Wellingtonian who is happily living, and working, in a shipping container by the sea. But even he admits its not all idyllic in tiny house living, so while political leaders are largely behind the craze it's unlikely we'll see the kinds of legal changes needed to make tiny houses a big part of the solution to New Zealand's housing crisis.Read more about the tiny house craze on the Superfad page on Stuff.And join the Superfad Facebook group to share your thoughts on this trend, and others.Katie and Laura are hosting Facebook live videos each Monday, where they will answer your questions, and take you behind the scenes.
Rank #2: Vaping. Jodi Green lost half her tongue to mouth cancer. It could have been worse if it wasn’t for e-cigarettes, she says.Green is one of the many evangelists for vaping - an alternative to dangerous tobacco cigarettes - who told us their stories for this episode of Superfad. People like Green are adamant vaping is already making a vital contribution to reducing the harm caused by addictive tobacco cigarettes.As vaping has become more a part of our communities, enthusiasts have formed their own groups, even running smoke-ring blowing contests (heard of the jellyfish?).But the medical community is equivocal. A review of evidence on e-cigarettes commissioned by Public Health England described vaping as “95 per cent less harmful [than smoking] and of negligible risk to bystanders”. But an inquiry by the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand said there’s a strong case for much heavier restrictions, citing studies showing the adverse effects of e-cigarettes on the lungs are immediate.For this episode, Superfad hosts Laura Walters and Katie Kenny go inside the vaping community, hearing their stories, learning the lingo and trying out the trend for themselves. They also hear from health experts worried about a lack of clarity on the impact of vaping and regulators grappling with what to do about it.

Rank #1: How location can give you a house that fits your lifestyle. Each week the NZ Herald and Newstalk ZB's Cooking The Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it's the newest episode of our OneRoof-partnered series, looking at how you can use location differently to get the house that works with your lifestyle. Hosted by Frances Cook.A house is a weird blend of a massive financial decision, and a massive lifestyle decision. So no wonder people get stressed when they're trying to find the right place for them. There are all sorts of things to weigh up to know if this is the right house for you and your circumstances. Do you want kids? Do you want to be close to your work, or do you want more space? Do you dream of planting a vege garden, or can you think of nothing worse than spending the weekend mowing lawns? If you weigh this up in the right way, the right house can both set you up financially, and increase your happiness in your day-to-day life. If it goes wrong, it can get ugly fast. For the latest Cooking the Books podcast, I talked to Bindi Norwell from REINZ and Ashley Church from OneRoof. We discussed the house lifestyle factors everyone should take into consideration, how small is too small, and whether you should consider buying in a less expensive city. If you have a question about this podcast, or question you'd like answered in the next one, come and talk to me about it.

Rank #2: Cooking the Books: The argument against maxing your KiwiSaver contributions. Each week the NZ Herald and Newstalk ZB's Cooking The Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it's the things you need to know before monetising a hobby. Hosted by Frances Cook.KiwiSaver is a wonderful scheme. You get free money from the Government and your employer, it automates your retirement savings, and it has plenty of options to let you do what's best for you and your money. It's safe to say, I heartily approve of KiwiSaver. But just because it's a good scheme, doesn't mean you're safe from messing it up. Many people will max out their KiwiSaver, happy in the knowledge that they're doing the best thing for their future. The issue is that putting three per cent of your income into KiwiSaver has a very different result from putting eight per cent into it. You get totally different benefits, and you arguably do better with three percent going in. Once that money is in, it's locked in, until you retire. So you want to be sure you're making the right choice, before padlocking your money away for decades.For the latest podcast I talked to David Boyle, currently at Mint Asset Management, and formerly from the Commission for Financial Capability, about KiwiSaver limits. We talked about where KiwiSaver gives the most reward, where it can hold you back, and better options for your money. For the interview, listen to the podcast.If you have a question about this podcast, or an idea for the next one, come and talk to me about it.I'm on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/FrancesCookJournalist/,Instagram here https://www.instagram.com/francescooknz/Twitter here https://twitter.com/FrancesCook.

Rank #2: 100NO 327: Conservative Courage – Resisting The Urge To Be Reckless. We have both had family members make some brave, bold decisions recently, and they are in the third act of life (aka they are not our children, but instead our parents). Both examples of this conservative courage are on the back of houses being sold – and tie in with our regular conversation on “loving where you live”. At some stages, not loving where you live but “hanging in there” can pay great dividends. Being Stoic over Snap Happy and resisting the urge to be reckless can be just as revered. Will this ever change? Or have the rules for successful living changed? Is being stoic and persevering something that we only get better at with age, or is it something we can learn and embody at any time? All of this and more on the latest edition of 100 Not Out.
