What podcasts should I listen to? Here’s everything with Graeme Smith from THISISGRAEME
The Good and Evil of Power – With Nathan and friends from Barbarian Rhetoric
I’ve been on Nathan’s podcast several times now as a guest, and this time I was very fortunate to be joined by new friends and old to discuss the nature of power.
Power is intoxicating and in the show, we dig into different kinds of power including financial, political and raw animal power. What is power and how does it affect us? Can we harness power for good or does it always corrupt?
The Uncommon World of Graeme Smith – With Chance Lunceford on the UnCommon Podcast
Chance and I have been good friends for a couple of years now on Twitter and other platforms. It was great to get together with him the other day and have live conversation about interesting things.
Chance, AKA @TheUncommonist on Twitter recently murdered his old podcast and it was a privilege and a pleasure to be his first guest on the newly resurrected show in this next evolution.
Chance is an engaging podcast host and always asks the best questions. In our wide-ranging conversations we cover aspects of New Zealand including Māori culture, values and worldview, creation and creativity as well as the importance of family.
The Path of Perfection – With Brother Fury from the HOOAFURY Podcast
Fury and I have known each other for a little while now and once upon a time even made a song together, but recently we had our first opportunity to spend some time talking face to face.
We discuss what it means to be well-rounded (and if that’s even possible) and delve into obsessions, frustrations and perfection as well as why it’s good to take a deep dive down the rabbit hole from time to time, how to create a life of deep work, and touch on photography, music, COVID, New Zealand, books, Japan, making your own booze and more.
Kiwi Adventure – With Nathan from Barbarian Rhetoric, Damon Whitten and Mark
Three Kiwis and an American walk into a bar… uh… a podcast. Join Nathan, Damon, Mark and me for an excellent conversation about New Zealand.
The discussion includes our various adventures such as surviving the massive Christchurch earthquake and cultural comparisons between the US and NZ. Find out why and how Americans are different to New Zealanders.
Mathematics and Muscles – with Nathan from Barbarian Rhetoric and Damon Whitten
Nathan from Barbarian Rhetoric sits down with Damon Whitten and me to discuss how people learn in different ways and at different speeds. We dive down a few different rabbit holes including the idea of “agency” and why you need to develop it before getting on to Damon’s new book about how to get strong, fast.
Damon is a powerlifter with a PhD in maths education… that means he’s one of the few academics you can probably trust.
Is It All Speculative? – with Nathan from Barbarian Rhetoric and Neovictorian
Nathan from Barbarian Rhetoric negotiates multiple timezones to bring together author, Neovictorian and me to discuss Neo’s books Sanity and Reality and a variety of topics from scientology to writing sex scenes in literature, surgical assassination and Te Kereru by fellow author SG Smith. This was a fun an engaging conversation with two men I admire.
Why You Need to Have a Hobby – Morning Brew with Hunter Drew Episode 50
Hunter Drew AKA Zac Small braves a storm and poor internet connectivity to dissect reasons why you need to have a hobby with myself and Nate from Barbarian Rhetoric. We get into some of the reasons why I started doing leatherwork and got interested in craft and craftsmanship.
This podcast ties into my book on Craftsmanship and 50 minute masterclass on the same. Hunter/Zac drills down into how having a hobby can help a man deal with stress and change.
Discussing Memerology with Professor Dr Becky
What is a meme? How do you meme? What is memerology? I sit down with rising star and memerologist, Professor Dr Becky to discuss. If you have questions about memerology you need to talk to the expert and there’s no one more expertly qualified than Professor Dr Becky. Yes, a memerologist really is a thing.
