 #565 The Neurology Of Consciousness | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:54:05

To be honest, this was a much broader conversation than the title suggests. Professor Steven Laureys is a Medical Doctor, Author, Neurologist and Meditation Master, who hangs out with the Dalai Lama and is recognised worldwide as a leading clinician and researcher in the field of the Neurology of Consciousness. If that sounds over-the-top academically (and boring), don't panic; it's fascinating and so is he. He even took me through a two-minute (ish) meditation mid-show and apparently, I'm no monk! It never ceases to amaze me how down-to-earth, kind and humble some of my brilliant guests are, and Steven was no exception. After we finished recording, the world-renowned academic, told me to "let him know if I needed any help or advice with my PhD research." Amazing. Enjoy.

 #564 Carparks, Comfy Beds and Compassion | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:01:34

Norm McGillivray's dad was a successful business man who had a severe stroke in his early thirties and subsequently lost his marriage, business and financial security, became homeless and sadly, died at 42 living on the streets of London. This experience (and others) inspired Norm to create Beddown, whose aim is to take spaces that are commonly used and busy during the day (like massive carparks) but at night are left empty and then to repurpose those spaces into pop-up overnight accommodation, ensuring that the homeless (those sleeping rough) can sleep in a warm and comfortable bed. Those who sleep rough are always fearful of being attacked and/or robbed and by providing a safe and secure place to get a good night's rest, Beddown help restore health, dignity and respect for their guests. I love this concept and I love Norm.

 #563 Tony Doherty Un-F*cking-Filtered | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:33

And yes, I recognise the irony of having an asterisk in this title. WARNING: if you're easily offended, this might not be the episode for you. It's fair to say, there wasn't a lot of filtering (or editing) happening. But if you're okay with all that, you might fucking love it. Tony Doherty is a Mate who wears his heart on his sleeve, pulls no punches, walks his talk and fights passionately for the industry he loves. He's a main-stream media regular and is often the lone voice of reason in a sea of misinformation and confusion about all-things fitness, working out and gyms (health clubs, PT studios). Like me, he's imperfect, rough around the edges and can ruffle feathers but what he is, is real. There's no show. No persona. No bullshit. If he likes you, you'll know and if he doesn't, you'll know. But underneath it all, is a bloke who cares deeply, thinks deeply and gives freely. This was a catch-up chat to see where he's at with his business, life, future plans and his own personal challenges. I loved it. Enjoy. @tonydohertyoz

 #562 Pandemic Psychology | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:09

I tend to steer clear of too much pandemic talk on TYP (there's enough elsewhere) but as I was chatting with my friend Jacqui Louder (a Psychologist chatting daily to people with Covid challenges), I thought we'd see how people are travelling mentally and emotionally (from her perspective) in the chaos. Fear not, we keep it relatively light and amusing because nobody needs another depressing Covid conversation. Enjoy.

 #561 Finding Your Flugelbinder (Part 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:38:05

This was an awesome chat with my ex-business partner, Tara Jarrett, about all things career, self-belief, self-sabotage, creativity, problem-solving, business development, understanding the needs of others (clients, customers, colleagues, friends), overcoming self-doubt, treading water in a job we hate and turning an idea in our head into a reality in the physical world (business, service, career, product, program). *FYI, Flugelbinder: a fictitious word from the movie 'Cocktail' referring to ordinary things (objects, ideas) that can turn their inventors into millionaires. atpilates.studio

 #560 Finding Your Flugelbinder (Part 1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:52:06

This was an awesome chat with my ex-business partner, Tara Jarrett, about all things career, self-belief, self-sabotage, creativity, problem-solving, business development, understanding the needs of others (clients, customers, colleagues, friends), overcoming self-doubt, treading water in a job we hate and turning an idea in our head into a reality in the physical world (business, service, career, product, program). *FYI, Flugelbinder: a fictitious word from the movie 'Cocktail' referring to ordinary things (objects, ideas) that can turn their inventors into millionaires. atpilates.studio

 #559 Is Motivation Over-rated? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:30:45

In this episode of TYP, Mark LeBusque and I discuss the science of creating lasting change. Along the way, we explore the roles of motivation, commitment, self-control, self-awareness, discipline, mindset, habits, rules and rituals. Enjoy. The Simply Practically Human Podcast

 #558 The First Self-Help Bloke (Ever) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:46:13

Mark LeBusque and I were back together for a yack (with Tiff) and we covered a fair bit of ground, including: • Public, Personal, Private & Secret You. • What 'authenticity' actually means (practically). • How to make 'comparison' a positive. • What makes someone an engaging speaker? • Stoicism: the original 'self-help'. • Socrates and 'self-awareness'. And lots more. Enjoy. The Simply Practically Human Podcast

 #557 Artificial Intelligence | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:09

Dr. Ayesha Khanna is the Co-Founder and CEO of ADDO AI, an artificial intelligence (AI) solutions firm and incubator. She has been a strategic advisor on artificial intelligence, smart cities and fintech to leading corporations and governments. Of course, you TYPers know that I'm no expert (massive understatement) when it comes to AI, technology (in general), machine learning or robotics but despite my ignorance and ineptitude, Ayesha and I had a great chat about the past, present and future of biology (humans) and technology. I even understood some of it! Enjoy.

 #556 Flearning (Learning Through Failure) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:19

Named one of AFR's 100 Women of Influence at just 26 years of age and Boss Magazine's Young Executive of The Year, Felicity Furey has led multi-million dollar engineering projects, founded several successful businesses, including WeAspire, Power of Engineering and Machinam and secured partnerships with Qantas, Toyota and Energy Australia. Felicity now works with high-performing teams to give leaders the skills they need to ignite new possibilities in Business, Education and STEM. Felicity is an Educator, Entrepreneur, Extrovert, Creator and Problem Solver with infectious energy, inspiration and curiosity and I loved our chat.

 #555 My Many F*ck-Ups | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:08:59

Here on TYP, I'm always banging on about creating an optimal (or improved) life, health state, business, career, relationship, outcome (etc.). Well, this time I kind-of reverse engineer the conversation by sharing the antithesis of a good to-do list; my numerous mistakes. Working in media (radio and TV), bouncing in pubs, writing books, opening the first PT studio, running multiple businesses, making shit up as I go, employing hundreds of people, going to University for the first time at thirty-six, four attempts at a podcast, getting fat, getting fit, getting fat-again, learning to be a leader, working through my own emotional bullshit, learning by doing, self-sabotage, self-doubt, succeeding, failing, peaks and troughs... its been an ongoing lesson. Enjoy.

 #554 The Fitness Interrogation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:52

I was just on 'The Australian Fitness Podcast' with Russell Jarrett who had a ridiculous idea; for me to answer 10 complex questions in 3 minutes (each), when every question could easily be a one-hour conversation. Like I said, ridiculous. So, what you'll hear in this episode is not individual advice, prescription or recommendation (never is) but rather, me sharing my thoughts, insights and feelings about the following questions: 1. Why do (some) people still feel intimidated by regular gyms and where are we getting it wrong? 2. Do Superfoods really exist? 3. The 6 best exercises for building muscle mass? 4. Supplements - overrated or underrated? 5. Is cardio going to damage my (muscle) gains? 6. How do I manage my nutrition? Why can't I seem to get it right? 7. If I'm 50+ years of age, how many times a week should I train and what should I do? 8. Machines vs. free weights. Which is best? 9. Should my teenager join a gym? 10. Does intermittent fasting work for all?

 #553 Relax Into The Mystery | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:16

I say I love my job so often, I worry that it might sound disingenuous but without the 'The You Project' as a conduit, the chances of me having a quality one on one chat with one of the world's most respected spiritual teachers (who lives 16,000 kms away), is zero. Elizabeth Lesser has worked with Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Ram Dass and the Dalai Lama, to name a few. She is a bestselling author whose books have been translated into twenty languages, she is the co-founder of The Omega Institute in New York and she was a total delight to talk with. Enjoy.

 #552 A New TYP Host (Part 2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:49:12

A new host... for a day or two. After 550 episodes, it's about time we got someone younger and prettier in the main chair. Tommy Jackett and I have been friends, colleagues and collaborators for more than a decade. Sadly for him, today's guest (and tomorrow's).. is me. It was fun (and weird) being introduced and interviewed on my own show but as always, we found a way to go deep down the philosophical 'what's-it-all-about' conversational rabbit hole. Enjoy. @tommyjackett
