Episode 8 - Managing the madness

"Paralysingly overwhelmed and underachieving" - the narrative a lot of us adopt. Our inability to keep up with our lifestyles is often interpreted as inadequacy. Episode 8 discusses how to ease our task loads, manage the madness and find those pursuits which we can afford to speed up on and those that we need to slow down.

Hosted by Yunus Skeete with guest speakers Ilham Said and Patrick Sullivan.

Episode 7 - Career Development

The next and logest chapter for many. For that reason it is often a paralysing decision to make. Episode 7 discusses how we are seeking to push back against a force that can leave us feeling powerless to change the trajectory we currently find ourselves on.

Hosted by Yunus Skeete with guest speakers Finn Morgan and Dardan Ratkoceri.

Episode 6 - Support Networks

As strong as we make ourselves, we will always face something we pale in comparison to. We will always need to lean on the support of others. Despite focusing so much on self-dependency, we neglect focussing on bolstering the strength of our support networks for the rocky days that may be just around the corner. From the perspective of a vulnerable overly self-resilient, Episode 6 is hosted by Yunus Skeete with guest speakers Yannick Yalipende and Montague Rhodes.

Episode 5 - Progressive Extremism/The Snowball Effect

Hosted by Yunus Skeete with guest speakers Tom Purves and Philip Mokuolu.
