I’ve started appearing on some podcasts! If you’d like to have me on yours, for an interview or an exploratory dialogue, hit me up on twitter (preferred) or via email (address here).
The Lightfoot Podcast with Joe Lightfoot
Today I spoke (and sang) with the marvellous Malcolm Ocean, we delved deeply into his emerging notion of the Non Naive Trust Dance and explored how breaking the taboo of speaking about the loss of trust can be a key component in community cultivation.
Reach Truth Podcast with Tasshin Fogleman
Tasshin speaks with Malcolm Ocean (@Malcolm_Ocean) about recording conversations, his friendship with Eric Chisholm, and the Non-Naive Trust Dance.
Curious Humans with Jonny Miller
In which my Twitter friend Malcolm and I nerd out on esoteric topics ranging from the art of asking questions to the barely known ideas contained in ‘Perceptual Control Theory’ have shifted his outlook on life and how it relates to his idea of ‘dream mashups’.
Drinking with Visionaries with Trace Brady
Life is too short to live on someone else’s terms, but before we can live on our own terms, we have to create, define, and communicate those terms.
Ari in the Air with Ari Delashmutt
Malcolm Ocean is a fellow Game B thinker – a title that we address right off the bat in this episode. We get into some really nice things – how much energy is in the differences in our perspectives, how that energy, if left unorganized can destroy shit, how our differences in perspectives can and do give us another dimension of depth in our relationships and how this is what it is to become a superorganism.
Malcolm is a really great conversation partner and we uncovered beautiful things in this talk.
A Becoming Creature with @BecomingCritter
In this information-packed episode Malcolm Ocean and I dissect The Divided Brain. We discuss the interplay between communication, self-coercion, and the roles of the left and right hemispheres.
Malcolm answers questions like:
• What is at the core of good conversation?
• Is pursuit of productivity fundamentally ego-driven?
• Is anxiety and self-coercion useful, and if so how?
• How do you think we can we best attend to what our experiences are telling us about how we should orient ourselves?
• Should we understand the conscious mind as fundamentally passive?
The Deep Dive podcast with Eyal Shay
What makes a conversation good? Malcolm and I dived deep to highlight the mechanics, prerequisites, and conditions that make conversations flowing and able to solve problems for participants. Factors mentioned in the episode include creativity, openness, empathy, logic, agreement, conflict, and many more. This conversation about Conversation is aimed at giving you tools and ideas that will help you live well and, ultimately, make our species better at problem-solving.
