Ethical Non Monogamy & Sex Positivity with Sexpert Zachary Zane

Season 5, Ep. 5

If ever there was an educational episode on this podcast this one is it. Zachary breaks it all down for us, from the multiple labels in modern society to jealousy and safety within ethical non monogamous relationships. 


“If you look at the studies and stats, we are seeing more and more people who are interested in non monogamy or engaging in non monogamy in some form. We are also the gayest or queerest generation! More and more people identifying as gay bisexual, transgender, non binary than ever before.”


A Brooklyn-based columnist and activist, Zachary’s work focuses on sexuality, culture, and the LGBTQ community. You can read his popular sex advice column, “Sexplainit” at Men's Health, ” but his work has also been published in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, GQ, Cosmo, and many others.


To be honest, we felt pretty ignorant throughout most of this episode, but Zachary proved to be a patient teacher and a good laugh. After he brought us through the meaning of the various sexual identifying labels, we discussed his sex column, fetishes, his personal life and his backstory.


A truly open minded and open human being, we really enjoyed this conversation and hope it, too! 


Lots of Love 

Dave & Steve

The cheapest way to live to 100?

Season 7, Ep. 1
Welcome to this week's episode! You are in for a treat… we have done the work for you this week by taking some of the BEST bits from our community series and distilling them into one clear message!Utopia is achievable! You better believe it!This episode is packed with so much amazing information. It will leave you in deep thought - the good kind!Community has been the backbone of our lives and our business. We would not have succeeded without it. Investing in true friendships that nurture our souls, encourage us to be better versions of ourselves and be true to ourselves has always been important to us. We would not be the people we are today or have succeeded in anyway without our community.So we decide to dig deeper and invite guest speakers to our podcast who virtually specialise on the topic.However, what we didn’t expect is how much we would learn. We were amazed by our guests who took us on a much deeper journey than we expected, from explorers who have emersed themselves in indigenous tribes, searched far and wide for the longest living and healthiest people, mother earth herself imparting her wisdom, trailblazers who have taken action and created their own localised community… to journalists and the importance of talking to strangers!A fascinating subject we will forever be exploring. We hope you find this episode enlightening and with a yearning to learn more.Lots of Love,Dave & SteveProduced by Sara Fawsitt and Sean Cahill

How modern moving is ageing us - with Katy Bowman

Season 6, Ep. 30
“Movement is a giant circle of a diagram, it’s any time you change the shape of your body or even the tissues within your body. Exercise is a specific type of movement… you do it to a mode, or a specific time frame… I am just trying to get people to think differently as we are so sedentary culturally that to exercise every day seems like a tone of movement… but we really require a tremendous amount more than just 1 hour a day and it really needs to be distributed better throughout the day.”Why you might ask is this necessary?To be able to use our bodies in the future! To be physically fit enough to be able to do the tasks we do now in the future. “You have to water your garden so it continues to produce”, by continuously moving in different dynamic ways throughout the day “you nourish your tissues”.This week we had the pleasure of speaking to bio-mechanist Katy Bowman, bestselling author, speaker, and a leader in the Movement movement. Katy is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement.Katy’s eight books, include the groundbreaking Move Your DNA, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide. Bowman teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and human movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences. She has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities, sharing her “move more, move more body parts, move more for what you need” message. Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family.And to honour this weeks guest, Vivo have granted our listeners a 20% discount on their footwear! 25% of our muscles are from our ankles down, there are more nerve endings per square centimeter in the foot than any other part of the body, and yet we bind them and put a thick sole under them so they feel nothing.Vivo footwear is part of the solution!
