Be More Pirate


New Year Special from the Crew

Be More Pirate is all about applied wisdom, so in this short new year special we have sourced some reflections from the network in the form of three questions:

  • What was your most pirate moment this year?
  • What rebellion would you most like to see in 2022?
  • What advice would you give to a new pirate?

Many thanks to the wonderful folk who sent in their thoughts: Deana Wildgoose, James Berg, Lefteris Heratakis, Kristin Joy-Davis, Mark Walmsley, Miguel Fernandez, Paul Ginsberg and Graeme Cooke

What matters is what we are able to act upon and every small stepping stone towards change is significant in its own way. Don't stop just because you don't think it's big enough, exciting enough or even 'pirate' enough. The journey is not linear, and everybody has a different starting point.

Happy New Year.

*Unbelievably, this is the first episode with no swearing*

The Uncertainty Experts

Season 2, Ep. 5
This week's episode is a bit different, as we steer away from pirates and rebellion and into Sam'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? In the 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 research undertaken 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 the documentary 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 website you can get a taste of some of the people you'll meet on this unusual journey, take the uncertainty test and get a feel for what it's all about. You can also of course purchase tickets to the show, which are discounted until the end of October. And of course, there's an even bigger discount for you pirates, just drop me a line, if you'd like to get the code.
