  • In this episode, we do our usual life update (Taim’s just been to Turkey, Ali’s had Laser Eye Surgery), followed by a discussion of ego, which somehow segues into a conversation about mind chatter, and aspects of spirituality. Enjoy xx

  • For the first time in the history of the podcast we have a six people on this episode - a new record for Not Overthinking. Given that we're on a group holiday in the Cotswolds, we discuss the purpose of group holidays, why they're different to socialising in everyday life as well as whether we should be doing work in these settings and how this might affect the experience of others in the group. Enjoy :)

  • After discussing why we've become consistently inconsistent in publishing episodes (sorry, not sorry), we spend the rest of this episode discussing the Enneagram - a model of the human psyche made up of nine interconnected personality types. Ali is fairly certain of his own type and so we move onto to trying to figure out which type best describes Taimur and ask how much can we really trust these types of test. Enjoy

  • 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 :)
