With this hugely terrifying statistic hanging over our heads, why is no one focussing on the big problems? Poorly aligned Artificial General Intelligence, Biotechnology and other risks are significantly more dangerous than global warming or the 2020 election but get paid far less lip service.

#191 - Alcohol, Friend Or Foe?
01:20:06

This episode was originally recorded on Ben's show Ben Coomber Radio.

I enjoyed this discussion about alcohol and drinking habits so much, I figured I'd put it on Modern Wisdom too. Lots more talking by me on this one, which you might enjoy.

As bars & pubs reopen after lockdown, it's a crucial time to remind yourself of being intentional & deliberate with your drinking. Rather than restarting a weekend warrior lifestyle, now could be a great opportunity to reset your routine & habits around alcohol. Enjoy this discussion, big thanks to Ben for letting me use the episode.

Kyle Eschenroeder is a marketer and a writer.

You do not want to live a life that you regret at the end of it. But working out what you WANT to want is a topic no one ever talks about.

When you follow your default desires, you're much more likely to find yourself at a place in life that you didn't really want to be, or mean to get to. Today, we learn how to step into our programming and actively design our direction in life. I love this topic.

01:03:06

Charlotte Fox Weber is the Head of Psychotherapy at The School Of Life.

Therapy is a term that comes with a lot of baggage. It's seen as a last ditch measure, a solution that is only needed by someone in a dire situation to "fix" a problem.

But what even is therapy and what does it do? Should it only be used by the people who are at the end of their tether? Who is it for? And why is it so stigmatised?
