Do you also think we are being bullied?

Hi everyone, 

So I’ve decided, after MUCH thinking that I want to do the most difficult and worthwhile thing I can think of – that is to do my podcast on a full time basis.  If you like my content and want to support me financially, please head here for a subscription, or please shout me a once off coffee or two https://www.buymeacoffee.com/insearchoflife

I can do a whole episode on how difficult it was for me to work out how and if I should even ask people for money – I’ll spare you the complicate intricacies of my beautiful mind (at least that part of it) in this episode.

In this episode I talk about bullying, both on a micro and macro level.  The content is challenging, but I have found that it’s easy for me to be a keyboard warrior on Facebook and much more difficult to create a meaningful podcast, so I decided to go with the difficult option instead.

I hope you enjoy it and find value in it.  If you want to support me, but want me to change anything before you part with your hard earned money, please let me know because you are now my customer as well as a listener 🙂

2: Another Conversation on Black Lives Matter interview with KT Teev

I had the great pleasure of having a very good discussion with Kendrick from KT Teev (www.ktteev.com).

We agreed on a bunch of things for example defunding the police is a bad idea as well as denouncing the riots currently happening across the US.

We also disagreed about many things.  While we disagreed, I genuinely appreciated the fact that KT made himself available for discourse.

I really enjoyed the conversation with KT tremendously and we will be doing a follow up in a few months time, the reason for which becomes clear at the end of the podcast.

KT – thank you again for being on my show, I actually feel like we’ve become friends, this is to the fact that we spoke openly and honestly about how we see things.

I wish only for the best for you and your community and I’m looking forward very much to our next round of discourse in the future.

11. If you listen to one conversation on Black Lives Matter this year – make sure it’s this one Part 2

Hi everyone   I had the great pleasure of having Zack and Brandon from “say what needs saying” on my show.   The conversation lasted for over 3 hours, I’ve split it into a 2 hour episode, at which point Zack had to leave and the second part between Brandon and myself.   The most amazing thing about this conversation is the open mindedness with which we all approached the conversation and our willingness to be honest with each other.   This episode is long, but I feel it’s a very special one and I hope you all enjoy it.   I’m also accepting “coffee money” now for my podcasts. If you would like to shout me a coffee in return for hurting your ears, I would genuinely appreciate it.       https://www.buymeacoffee.com/insearchoflife

Hi everyone

Non controversial message

It’s been a while since my last podcast.  Given all the recent chaos in the US and the international attention that racism has received, I felt it would be an injustice if a minority group white South African born male was to be left out.

In this message I question the validity of all the current racial injustices, but more importantly I really aim to explain why the situation is being exacerbated and I aim offer up a solution.

One of the major reasons for dusting off my mic is because of Ozzyman reviews, who I think is a great comedian, but I think he missed the mark on his black lives matter podcast. 

I hope many people will hear the message, but when you listen to it closely it you’ll see it doesn’t pick sides and doesn’t blame racism or black people, so neither side will get enraged and hit share.

9: Interview with David Essel – author, counselor and recovering alcoholic

I am crazy busy moving to Germany, hence why I missed last week’s episode.

But this week I am back to taunt your ears.

Have you ever thought of starting a business but not quite sure what?

This week I interviewed David Essel, he really well known in the Counselling and life coach area.  Apologies, the sound quality on my side wasn’t the best, I’m still learning to be better at the sound component 🙂

David shares a tonne of interesting information around getting sober and all of his personal struggles.

David is super honest and upfront about having sold products for many years that he now says simply does not work.  I thought this level of honesty is quite something.

Toward the end of the episode I start asking him whether/how I should look to use my podcast as a source of income.

Part of my hidden personal agenda with these podcasts were to start earning a living due to the fear of moving to Germany and potentially struggling in the job market there.  I always find more difficult ways of trying to move forward rather than take the simple ones.

The more I think about it, the more I think it’s best to stick to trying to help just one person who might need to hear about the fact that life is hard.  But that’s an episode for another day.  

Hope you enjoy this one 🙂

8: Is it the Patriarch, corruption or just me?

So after I did the Satireday Special (embarrassingly) I kinda almost wished there is an actual patriarchy.

I mean, I fit into the supposed qualification and wouldn’t it be good if there was an older protecter type of brother who just sticks his hand out and says – here you go.  

But it’s not how life works.  We have to take on as much responsibility as we can bear.  The more we take on (and here’s the kicker, responsibility isn’t one dimensional) the better the chance of success.  It’s a bit like lotto though, just because you have a ticket doesn’t mean you’ll win.  But the more you take on the better the chance that you’ll have success.  Nothing in life is guaranteed.  

There will always be SOME corruption in the world, simply because humans aren’t perfect, nor is the universe.

It’s what you do with that, that makes the difference.

Anyway, I’m rambling on so much, you don’t need to listen to the podcast anymore.

I hope you enjoy the episode 🙂
