  1. Should we be wary of so-called coaches?

    Coaches are no longer confined to the sporting world, now there are coaches for almost every aspect of our lives - divorce, retirement, career, intimacy, leadership, weight loss, finance… you name it, someone says they can coach you through it. But what makes someone a coach exactly? How can you be sure their advice is legitimate? It's unregulated and murky.

  3. Christos Tsiolkas: Barracuda

    Christos Tsiolkas has long been one of Australia’s most glittering literary treasures – and thanks to the success of his bestselling barbecue-stopper The Slap, he’s now a household name. In his sixth novel, Barracuda, Tsiolkas once again holds up a mirror to the deepest insecurities and most dearly held dreams of middle class Australia.

    Tsiolkas delivers a searing exploration of failure, and how to come back from it — on the back of his greatest literary success.

    Join our foremost chronicler of contemporary Melbourne for a typically tender and coruscating look at how we live now. In a wide-ranging conversation with Michael Williams, Tsiolkas addresses topics including class, writerly craft and - on the back of his Monthly cover essay about the asylum seeker issue – our collective capacity for compassion and social progress.

    Co-presented by the Wheeler Centre and Readings.

  4. London underground… literally - ABC Radio National

    London is a layer cake of history — and we're burrowing in deep. We're purely going to stay underground to reveal bigger stories about this storied capital.

    But the thing is, the further deep you go, the newer the city's subterranean structures get. It's archaeology in reverse.

  6. Consciousness and contemplation - The Philosopher’s Zone - ABC Radio National

    Consciousness is one of those phenomena that combine the everyday with the ineffable. We experience consciousness intimately, and yet in many ways it remains ungraspable. What is consciousness? Why do we have it? How can the physical stuff of the world give rise to something as mysterious as first-person experience? Philosophy, science and contemplative traditions have all struggled with these questions - and this week, we're talking about a new Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies that brings these disciplines together.

  7. Don’t chase happiness. Become antifragile | Tal Ben-Shahar | Big Think

    Don’t chase happiness. Become antifragile, with Tal Ben-Shahar Subscribe to Big Think on YouTube ►► https://www.youtube.com/c/bigthink Up next ►► The science of happiness, motivation, and meaning | Dan Ariely https://youtu.be/6yQiBT_W2VA

    Antifragility is the idea of putting pressure on a system, or human, the system or human actually grows bigger and stronger.

    Antifragile systems are all around us. One example of this is our muscular system. We go to the gym to lift weights. By doing so we are putting pressure on our system to help it grow stronger. The human body is an antifragile system.

    From a psychological perspective, antifragility comes in the form of PTG, or post-traumatic growth. After we experience a stressful event, we learn and grow to become more resilient.
