Episode 30 brought to you by mostly going through the motions of processing my father's recent passing which brought up a lot of curious thoughts around my being adopted by him and what that actually now means. It's a touch more solemn than usual, but them's the breaks.

Good morrow! Fair listeners...it's been a while. A few months in fact, since the last episode. Life in the land of Shiggi got tough and I decided I needed to take some time away from basically everything and look after myself for a bit. That all worked out great as you discover in this super short 15min episode. The biggest takeaway is a short summary of a January challenge I did and had people do a few years ago that had you follow 3 basic mantras for a whole month:1. Speak no bullsh*t2. Eat no bullsh*t3. Move your body (just a little bit)Super simple, but a far easier and encouraging way to get yourself through the year than most. Get stuck in - let me know what you thought.

Once again, I thought I didn't have much to say - and once again the day before I found I was thinking about a multitude of things. This was helped by taking over Ex TeamGB climbing member Louis Parkinson's Instagram page for a day. I shared 4 long posts covering thoughts about rock climbing (whilst Black) which you can find as a collected article here: Contemplating Climbing whilst BlackThe second part, I wax lyrical about the spectrum of full-time work versus being self-employed and how it's ok to flip from one to another and back again if you want.If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

I think I just about had nothing to say this morning, but dragging my butt to online Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class spurred this episode's content into existence! So, settle in and let's discuss why Mel Robbins' 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 method is absolute gold. How the importance of the previous "100 Sessions" comes into the spotlight in the depths of a pandemic. And experience how one's train of thought can completely crap out, if you haven't fed yourself properly. The two podcasts I guested on recently are from Dennis Ball on his YouTube Channel (there are 3 parts!) and The Liminal PodcastIf you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

It's a Wednesday! And my brain...poor thing, needs a gym or something! Anyway, it's been a curious old week including conversations with old school friends which ended up in a self-schooling around Anti-Racism and really looking at what you do to be happy...not having happiness, genuinely BEING happy...Mine definitely includes a bit of Jamiroquai
Happy Solstice! Once again, this episode came up out of the blue, orange, yellow, red, green, purple...well, it's certainly rainbow-powered. Carrying on in the fashion of wanting to at least help one person understand a little bit more about themselves or some aspect of the world (and maybe feel a little bit less crazy) - this episode surfs the surface of my journey into more "New Age" experiences. Kambo and Iboga are probably not part of your everyday conversations, but they were certainly key ceremonies I took part in and helped me understand myself a little bit more...If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

Hark, another 2 weeks have gone by. And you know what? That's OK. I took a week off of social media (sorta) and it lay the way to many insights, ideas and planned action going forwards. "Implicit bias" was the phrase of the week and it spurred on some fun moments to recall from my university days and issues I had with my mother. Whilst we can't fully delete our internal bias - it helps to put a mirror up to it sometimes. So join me! In this little adventure down today's rabbit hole.

I didn't want to record today's podcast....but in a lighter er, light...who knows what's going to rock up in the next 7 or so days? The killing of yet another black man in the US by way of a brutal blood choke under a crooked police officer's knee has sparked global outrage, in the midst of a pandemic. To be quiet now would be foolish, so I share some thoughts and ideas. A few parts of this episode I'd have redone but they're done on the spot and from the hip.

Has it been 2 weeks? Really? I guess the subject of time is fitting. Come jump into a quick episode that gives you a snap of what's going on in my head, why it's been two weeks and a timely email from the past sent to the future via the wonderful world of www.futureme.org  If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

Well, well, well. Would you look at that? It's a Wednesday AND happens to fall on the 1 year anniversary of my mother killing herself. So I'm shooting from the hip and just reviewing what I went through, feelings and thoughts as time went on and maybe even how I'm trying to accept my new reality and start walking forwards in my own wake. It's a chunky one coming in at just over an hour, which was unintentional. I could have recorded it, but I'd be doing anyone who needs it a disservice
Holy potato, folks! It's an episode out on a Wednesday at 6pm UK time! I joke, I have no concept of time right now...but what I do have is a concept of existence of some kind. Still on lockdown in the UK. The industries that I thrive in won't be seeing the end of this any time soon so I've allowed full on introversion and questions to do their thang. Which has resulted in some fun discoveries, and a few baby steps forwards. www.enterthedroid.com being one of them (if you know, you know)...If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

Episode (c) 19. What a time to be alive....I think we're all going to have COVID-19 fatigue soon, what with every single conversation hovering or swimming in the hot topic of the pandemic currently sweeping our little planet. I've been in self-isolation for 10 days and I'm not coping so well, if you listen to this podcast you can hear the cogs in my brain start stalling towards the end...observing our own behaviours is rather hilarious when it comes to solitary confinement.If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

2020 has been a little bit rough, eh? Well...thankfully earlier this week I got a little bit of fire back in my heart thanks to Stephen Fry (he doesn't know, but thank you for being you!) and we're carrying on with the lovely whimsical off-the-cuff style podcasts I started with. Dive in to hear why this happened, how things are going to move going forward and some big...quite frankly SCARY AF news...that you'll be the first to know (when you know) If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

Breaking into 2020

Breaking into 2020

Ew. We're back. I took a break because I felt like it. This is me gently easing myself back into this gloriously hot bath of podcasting about ridiculous things. I may sound like I've eaten a frog. I promise it's not permanent. It's short and sweet this week, back into the full swing of things next week! There are 4 books to go for Season 2....let me know what you want to hear or talk about for the next few seasons.If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

A repeat author?! Why, yes. Alain De Botton - The Architecture of Happiness (The Secret Art of Furnishing Your Life) had to feature as it helped shape a pivotal point in my 20's just after getting out of the drain-hole of clinical depression and being inspired to look at the world of Architecture. Of course, there is a story or two intermingled with the ideations and lamentations of why Architecture even "is" - albeit very lightly. I'm no scholarly psychologist or philosopher, so don't expect anything ground breaking. But if you hate pebble dashing as much as I do and find New Builds in the UK reprehensible at best, come have a listen!If you want to see a bit of my podcast live or just reach out and have a natter, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

Episode 5 of the book season. Today's got a bit emotional! Unintentionally but when you're talking about a book you read to understand your dad and how life must have been for him in a concentration camp, it's going to happen. Understandably the episode is shorter, but you definitely need to have a listen to see why. If you want to see a bit of my podcast live, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

A beautiful segue from the last episode, where we looked at Seth Godin writing about the Lizard Brain. One of his sources comes in the form of Steven Pressfield's The War of Art. The accessibility and simplicity of this book covering what he calls The Resistance, should be read by everyone. Period. ....I'd end my description there, but there's a touch of radical honesty, a story of calamity and a reason why I hate gyms that includes hamsters.

Oh Snap! It's a sexy segue into another book episode. This time it involves anti-squatting, Evian water deliveries, working for the government and why all of that mess in my life boils down to the very existence of Seth Godin's Linchpin. I got a bit carried away with the stories (why else are we here, though?!) and pull out the one bit of the book that really blew my mind, made me uncomfortable and got my candy ass to go do the work! If you're finding life a bit sludgy right now, I implore you to read this book.

Straight into Season 2 Episode 2 (or episode 12 of this whole damn thing, because we're going for that full 100-episodes before I can stop!) and this book fundamentally changed my life course. A touch dramatic? Maybe - but it's the truth... Tim Ferriss' The 4-Hour Workweek is probably a book many of you have read, maybe even some of you are a bit of a fan (I know I am) so the words I share will be no surprise to you but the stories around them are fun and different - what relevance does my being naked have in any of this? Well, you gotta listen, obviously.If you want to see a bit of my podcast live, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.

It's a new season! (or episode 11, if you're that way inclined). For the next 10 episodes, I shallow dive (we'll be here for months if I went in deep, lol) into 10 books off my shelf that helped shape, inspire and create the Shiggi you hear and know today. We start off with what I lovingly term a "brief introduction to Philosophy for dummies" - mostly because I keep on returning to it year after year. So, join me as I skim through the topcoat of existential paint that is philosophy.If you want to see a bit of my podcast live, come say hi on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ShiggimusYou can find this podcast elsewhere:Getting Shiggi With...Podcast Available at:1.
