  • We're back into our weekly schedule and in this episode, after diving into why Taimur has signed up to do a triathlon and why Ali suddenly wants a dog, we discuss thoughts on autonomy sparked by an interesting article by Simon Sarris which describes why agency is the most precious resource. Enjoy :)

  • In this episode of the podcast, after Ali explains the revelations he’s had about his business, we take a trip down memory lane. Following a family trip to the area where we grew up, we reflect on our emotional experience of revisiting the sites of our early childhood as well as the memories we have of that time. From lying on the floor to kiss chase to running away from home, we each seem to have certain moments that stand out from those early years. We talk about why certain experiences seem to lodge themselves firmly in our memory and the different factors that could affect which memories we keep and those we forget.

    We’ll try to get back into the groove of publishing every week moving forward. Enjoy.

  • After a short sabbatical from recording, we’re back once again. In this episode, we catch up with what’s been going on in our lives over the past few weeks before discussing why certain tweets end up becoming more contentious than intended and how identities can be revealed through how people respond to certain tweets. We also debate some of Taimur's recent book suggestions which Ali has found to be surprisingly good.

  • After a few weeks away, we’re back with another episode that dives into Ali’s dating life and explores more theories and ideas around children and parenting.

    We first discuss the etiquettes and expectations of texting on dating apps and what’s considered a ‘normal’ amount of interaction before asking someone out for a coffee or a meal. We then shift gears and move onto exploring Taimur’s theories around intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as well as the ideas from Unconditional Parenting – a book by Alfie Kohn that Taimur has been reading over the past couple of weeks.

    It’s another wide-ranging episode but we hope you enjoy listening.

  • This week we’re joined by returning guest to the podcast, Lucia, to talk about her charity work. We discuss her reasons for starting her charity, LEEP, her experiences since it was formed and the impact that it’s had. We talk about what motivates us to pursue different causes and where we can have the most impact and then finally, at the end of the podcast, Taimur takes a very important pledge. Enjoy :)

  • After a couple of weeks away, we’re back with updates on what we’ve been up to since our last recorded episode. From Taimur’s live rendition of Brown Eyed Girl to Ali’s discovery of WeWork to a conversation on the value of business coaches, we cover a lot of ground in this typically wide-ranging episode.

  • This week we’ve got another in-betweenisode because our diaries didn’t match up for us to record a podcast so we’re releasing an interview that Ali recently did with journalist, author and podcaster Anna Codrea-Rado. Anna worked for VICE and the Guardian before going freelance 4 years ago and her articles now appear in the New York Times, the Guardian, BBC, Wired, the Atlantic, Vice, and loads of others. She’s just released her first book entitled “You’re the Business: How to build a successful career when you strike out alone” which focusses on working for yourself and offers insights she’s learnt since she went freelance in 2017. Ali spoke with her about the world of work, careers, the challenges she faced going alone and how she hopes the book can help those who want to follow a similar path. It’s a really interesting discussion because Ali and Anna both made similar decisions in terms of starting their own businesses but obviously in very different sectors so I hope you find this interesting. We’ll be back with a full episode next week.

  • In this short episode, we continue our recent discussions around how kids are treated in society. We talk about a recent post by Duncan Sabien which raises four main points about how we treat, or should treat, children and talk about how it relates to our own experience as kids. After a brief update about Ali’s latest gaming troubles, we bring the episode to an early end. We’ll be back with a longer episode next week.

  • After a week away, we’re back with a typically wide-ranging episode. Our discussion ranges from toxic productivity to mindsets around competition and competitiveness to how we should frame the abstract nature of work that we ‘have’ to do. Ali’s also looking for a name for his new stationary brand so if you have any suggestions then please send them in. Thank you for listening and please leave us a review if you can. Enjoy.

  • Hey everyone - another bit of an 'in-between'-isode this week. In this episode, Ali talks to Brandon Sanderson - his favourite author of all time. Brandon is a best-selling author who has written books that have sold millions of copies including the incredible fantasy books, Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive. He also wrote the final 3 books of The Wheel of Time series. Brandon's output is legendary - he writes books almost faster than we can read them, and he teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. In this wide-ranging discussion, they not only discuss writing but also talk about finding your passion, creating enjoyment, business decisions and why Brandon wanted to work night shifts at a hotel when he was first starting out on his writing journey. Enjoy.

  • In this episode, we look back over the past two years of recording this podcast. We discuss why we think it’s lasted so long, reflect on how the podcast has changed over the two years since we began recording in March 2019 and finally consider whether we should think more about our target audience and we try to break down why people listen.

Joey's an expert at 'spreadsheetising' all aspects of his life, including health, relationships and careers to have the biggest impact on the world. Our wide-ranging conversation discusses the extent to which we can (or should) quantify our lives, and Ali gets a lot of dating advice as well. Enjoy

  • In this episode, we begin by talking about Ali’s theory for what makes for a good blog post or YouTube video before a tweet from none other than Agnes Callard about introverts sends us down a path debating introversion, extroversion and signalling.

  • In this episode, we talk about earnestness and sincerity when posting on social media. We discuss Ali’s decision to start writing online, why it feels different posting a blog post as opposed to publishing a YouTube video and how we each want to come across on Twitter. We also delve a little into Ali’s dating life and how we each deal with people reaching out to us.

  • Hey everyone - a bit of an 'in-between'-isode this week. In this episode, Ali talks to Justin Kan a renowned internet entrepreneur, investor and founder and the co-founder of Twitch, the video game streaming platform. He's also helped found a number of other platforms including Socialcam, a mobile app for sharing video and is an active angel investor and mentor for many startups. They chat through a whole variety of things in this wide ranging discussion, we hope you enjoy it. We'll both be back next week :)

  • In this episode, we break down our feelings over the outpouring of nice comments that viewers kindly left on YouTube on our last episode. We touch on the difference between pity, sympathy and ‘feeling sorry’ for someone. Taimur feels strongly about this, Ali less so. We explore these feelings. (Apologies for the slight issue with the audio).

  • In this episode, we discuss The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt, which explores questions of morality. We take a look at the three principles about morality that form the basis of the book and why people have different understandings of right and wrong. We also briefly talk about Ali’s concerns and struggles with his YouTube channel.

  • This week we talk about the phenomenon of 'social media grifting' - trying to build an audience online through deliberate tactics. Most people think it's cringe, but we try to figure out whether it's objectionable. We also workshop Ali's book proposal.
