Every week two friends search for meaning in life and show off a bit. Sometimes we know a lot about our topic and sometimes we work out how little we know. We always try and have fun. You might laugh, get a bit angry, a bit sad sometimes, agree, disagree, nod, shout at us. That sort of thing. Michael made all our music. Have a listen. Tell your friends. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We discuss a BBC News article that dismisses on company's attempt paying people the same as an inevitable failure and try to keep the subject open for discussion. Some thoughts arising: We could pay according to hours-worked and acknowledge that those with the most responsibility are essentially at work 24 hours a day There is plenty of scope for f…
 
Post-T***p, Brexit, what can we start doing to move forward, globally and personally.

Stories are fundamental to human existence. We talk about the different ways they can be told, from written language to films and data visualisations.

With T***p gone, it’s time to “broaden the periscope”* and start using those brain cycles that he kept hijacking for something good instead. *Definitely a saying that people say.

Remember those three days while we were waiting for the US election votes to be counted? We recorded this episode in the middle of that, so you can listen. For nostalgia! We did talk about things that weren’t contingent on the outcome too. Try Donegood https://donegood.app Get Michael’s Apps https://goodtohear.co.uk Restaurants Brighton: https://re…
 
It's our last episode before the US election result is known so we're sharing some of the many reasons the US needs to dump Trump.

When you spend all day with a ticking clock in your peripheral vision, you become very conscious of time. This week we discuss our subjective sense of time, past and future, anxieties and dreams. We also talk about the scientific meaning of time in terms of entropy and the reason life exists. In all this, we keep bringing up Michael's new app Doneg…

What's the best way to come up with ideas? How do we choose which idea to pursue? Should we be protective of our ideas or should we tell everyone? What's the difference between an idea and the actual thing it ends up becoming? Why do we fall in love with ideas?

Michael tracks a lot of different metrics. Like weight, work, mood and exercise. Ivanka uses the occasional tracking gadget. This week we get into the subject of the quantified self - why we do it, whether we do it, how to keep it up, what to do when it drops off, what we do with the data. Michael's made a few apps in this area - Happiness, Changes…
 
Charity seems like a good thing until it is expected to solve the problems created by the dwindling Welfare State. Covid has created a situation where more people need charity and fewer people are able to contribute. It would be nice if more people contributed their professional skills to charities instead of just wanting to hand out cups of tea. W…
 
In this week's episode of the "Things that Michael is Worried About" podcast, we talk about expanding and achieving our potential. We hate the idea of wasting potential but it turns out it's never possible to use it all. ---- This Week's Links ---- [1] Free Book Tracking Happiness and Why It Works - https://goodtohear.co.uk/free [2] Restaurants Bri…
 
This week we talked about burnout. Running out of steam. Exhaustion. Getting hives. We share some experiences of being overworked and how we do a better job these days of managing our energy levels, commitments and boundaries for a better work/life balance. Hopefully.

Why is fame so appealing? Why are famous people so fascinating? We tell some celebrity stories so that’s exciting, right? But why? We conclude that we should treat our friends the way we’d treat famous people. (Famous people we like, that is.) ---- This Week's Links ---- [1] Ivanka’s Trump tweet - https://twitter.com/ivanka/status/82128679649136230…
 
Michael had a good week releasing a new feature in his changes app with a video and wanted to talk about his weird feelings around the response. Ivanka offers some therapy as we discuss the nature of change, the ways we struggle to make changes, the perils of pursuing happiness. It's more about developing resilience than becoming permanently happy.…
 
Some Coronavirus talk. Some mask talk. Some talk of personal responsibility vs state or institutional responsibility.

Ignorant leaders commit us to stupid plans because experts are too paralysed by their own depth of knowledge to speak up. This week we talk about Expertise Paralysis in different disciplines. We offer ideas for communicating important ideas before it's too late. ---- Free Book Tracking Happiness and Why It Works https://goodtohear.co.uk/free Bright…
 
We talked about Fairphone (this is not an advert!) and how much different tech companies and communities are doing to fix supply change and ethical problems. When open-source libraries are changing their websites in support of #BlackLivesMatter we could all probably be doing more. Free Book Tracking Happiness and Why It Works https://goodtohear.co.…
 
With the shops opening in the UK and Capitalism starting to ramp back up, we wanted to stop and talk about whether we need something other than rampant overconsumption to feel good. Fjaka is a Dalmatian concept describing a sublime state of relaxation where one wants for nothing. We could all probably learn something from these Dalmatians Free Book…
 
This week on Michael & Ivanka's Gardening Podcast we discuss carrots and rosemary. But then we talk about ways in which efficiency isn't always a good thing. Particularly in the lead-up to a pandemic. Free Book Tracking Happiness and Why It Works https://goodtohear.co.uk/free Restaurants Brighton: https://restaurantsbrighton.co.uk/food-gifts-sussex…
 
All too often, the term "virtue signalling" is tossed out to dismiss statements made in good faith by people as they become aware of the breadth of possible experiences beyond their own privileged outlook. Public expressions of a commitment to inclusive values shouldn't be dismissed without evidence of hypocrisy. Unfortunately, accusations of "virt…
 
Donald Trump thinks Twitter is suppressing his free speech because they put a little blue exclamation mark on a couple of his lies. We talk about some of the challenges designing systemic solutions to the proliferation of misinformation on social networks. Whilst swearing.

It seems that nations that value human life over GDP have done a better job of protecting their citizens throughout this pandemic. That's the seed of this week's chat.

Sometimes we want control. Sometimes we'd rather someone else was in charge. Sometimes the person we're relying on to be in control isn't doing a very good job.

What is science, really? How can we tell what's a conspiracy theory and what is a peer-reviewed study? And what about if we've just got some ideas that we want our scientific advisors to "try out"? Is there anything we should know before we ask stupid questions on the television and subsequently have to pretend we were being "sarcastic"? Michael's …

Coronavirus shines a light on all the problems of Conservative thinking and shows us why it's so important to have a state that protects everybody. How will this pandemic change things?

Conservatives think that jobs are the answer to every problem, regardless of how rewarding or well-paid they are. We dissect the video game that is corporate job titles and think about which types of we think should exist and which shouldn't. We decide that if only we all got paid the same, it might be nice to do a few months as a cleaner! ---- Thi…

Dom Cummings says he wants to "transform Britain into a 'meritocratic technopolis'". He's now worked his way into a position where he can implement his ideas via the blank slate of our new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

Continuing our discussion of "what is wrong with the left", this week we turn our attention to "Cancel Culture" and the phenomenon of publicly shaming people on Twitter. Contrapoints just released a good, long video on "Canceling" which Michael watched the day before recording. Perhaps if people were a bit more polite and considerate online, things…
