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.

Working out how to cheat is an interesting thought experiment, even if it just helps you clarify what game you’re trying to win. We talked about different places people cheat — games, school, life, business, politics — and who ends up paying in different situations.

London is a great and terrible city. If you want money, or you have money, it offers possibilities available nowhere else. But it’s a cynical place. Should Michael break up with it like Ivanka did 10 years ago?

It’s an episode about the climate, not just the weather! How will climate change affect our environment, work life, home life and music?

We had to look it up, but we wanted to talk about how anxiety works in all its forms - unfocused, focused, momentary or lifelong. We decided it’s useful when you can do something about it but less so when you can’t. (We’re not talking about anything chronic!). Streamed Live on https://twitch.tv/michaelforrest, Friday 25th June 2021 Sorry the record…
 
“Fail Fast” say business people. But “failure” can be a nebulous concept. Sometimes it’s not clear whether you should keep going or pivot to something else, and that perception can get tangled with our own identity. We also talk about children’s books.

Is winning the lottery all it’s cracked up to be? Not necessarily, not that either of us has ever won it. But it’s nice to think about how life would be different if money was no object, so let’s give it a go.

We’ve all found the need for a bit of emotional resilience as the pandemic has turned out lives upside down, not to mention polarisation on social media and whatever is going on in our personal lives. It’s important to maintain healthy boundaries between ourselves and others, and between our sense of self and our emotional reactions. Streamed Live …
 
Our animal brains tend to be suspicious of anything that looks out of place or unusual. We have to train ourselves not to see people who are different as a threat. Most weirdos are behaving in the service of their own values so it’s not really our problem if you don’t immediately understand. We want to normalise new behaviours where think we can do…
 
When you can’t find the “cancel subscription” button or the button that doesn’t add an unwanted extra to your bill, or you’re confused by double-negatives and weird questions, you might be encountering a “Dark Pattern”. It’s probably by design. Dark Patterns make lots of money for some very big businesses, but they betray a pretty galling lack of r…
 
Jeff Bezos’ 2020 Letter to Shareholders is a slick piece of writing, espousing everything that is ostensibly brilliant about Amazon. But there’s some stuff in there that we wanted to pick apart and examine based on our own particular values.

There was a whole thing this week about Basecamp’s “No politics talk at work” and we felt we had something to add to the conversation. Because if politics is just “stuff that makes you uncomfortable to talk about and means you might have to change something to feel better” then that’s not okay. Streamed Live on https://twitch.tv/michaelforrest, Fri…
 
It’s a slimy-feeling way to think about things so we’re doing it so you don’t have to. We talked about how to recognise our different types of capital and then use this to be braver in the world.

Capital isn’t just money or property, it can come in other forms such as Human Capital, Social Capital or Reputational Capital. We discuss our experiences in the light of an interesting blog post on the subject, and talk about ways to work a day job can help you develop more things to take with you. Also, we spend a long time swearing about a pries…
 
Dominic Cummings wanted to set up a thing to invent the next internet and then BRITAIN WOULD BE RICH. We respond to his appearance before MPs in Downing Street on the 17th March and think perhaps he hasn’t thought it through.

It’s been a year since this pandemic took hold. We talk about our experiences, what’s changed for better or worse, different approaches to medicine in different places, and how well or badly different people have dealt with the situation as it has evolved. ---- Stuff we made ---- Try Donegood https://donegood.app Get Michael’s Apps https://goodtohe…
 
A tangled web of conversation covering rewards (intrinsic or extrinsic), awards, celebration (public or private), measurement, competition and gratification (instant or delayed).

We talked about leverage in terms laid out in this blog post “The Michael Scott Theory of Social Class”. Where leverage just basically means power. We talk about powerful people and why we’re not as powerful as we could be if we could become better sociopaths.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
