Carl Honoré

Season 2, Ep. 7

Carl Honoré, deemed the Godfather of the Slow Movement, has spent the last two decades writing, talking and supporting thousands of people to move against the tide of our fast paced consumerist world. An award winning writer, best selling author, TED speaker and broadcaster, Carl is now turning his disruptive thinking to a new topic: ageism. His latest book Bolder, unravels the unhelpful stereotypes we have about getting ageing and proves that it doesn't have to be that way. With humility and some brilliant storytelling, Carl is an expert dismantling norms and supporting people to change their behaviour.


A pirate we are pleased to know.

The Uncertainty Experts

Season 2, Ep. 5
This week's episode is a bit different, as we steer away from pirates and rebellion and intoSam's new project, The Uncertainty Experts: a three part interactive documentary that is scientifically proven to increase your tolerance to Uncertainty. And after the year we've had, what could possibly be more helpful?Inthe same vein as Be More Pirate, The Uncertainty Experts is full of stories. It's based on interviews with some remarkable people who have each found their way through deep uncertainty and developed strategies that can help you in turn. And, it's backed up with some robust researchundertaken by scientists at University College London that helps you to understand the brain science behind the narrative. In a nutshell, it's an edgy, experimental reframe of uncertainty as something not to fear or avoid but to embrace. In this episode of the podcast I chat to Sam and lift the lid on the process of putting thedocumentary together and explore some of the concepts that really stood out to me.The Uncertainty Experts airs on 9th November, if you go to the websiteuncertaintyexperts.comyou can get a taste of some of the people you'll meet on this unusualjourney, take the uncertainty test and get a feel for what it's all about.
