A podcast with some friends asking the right questions, one episode at a time. The idea is simple: we talk about the hard questions, casually.

We believe that friends usually have all the answers in their anecdotes and banter. All it takes is a question. All it takes is asking. So, let's ask my friends.

This moment is never easy, but well, this very meta episode is an honest, unplanned commentary and discussion on the challenges for this season which has now come to an end. We did not want to end it abruptly, so this is a proper sendoff, and like any good series, there is a soft cliffhanger in case we decide to come back for the third one. You know what they say, the third one's the charm and all. In this one, we talk about where we are currently, how this journey has been, and why we feel this is the best place to end it. Thank you for your support so far! Thank you for tuning in every week! If you're still curious, the shownotes are on the website. If you think we did a good job with this season, you can still support us on Thank you again, and we'll probably see you in the next one!  --- Send in a voice message:
Our lives and technology are so intertwined today that this is really a no-brainer to talk about. You're mostly going to listen to this episode on a phone or a tablet. There may be a smart speaker in the scene, too. We don't know, but what we do know is how we use technology, and what we think about it overall. In this wild episode, we talk about tech, how we make buying decisions, how we use it, and most of all, how we look at it all. You can use that nifty phone to support us on, or you can check the shownotes on We hope you like this one!  --- Send in a voice message:
Has it ever happened to you when someone mentioned a cool, new activity, you remembered how you used to do it, and now it is just a "thing that I used to do"? It surely has happened to us, and in this episode, that is what we talk about. Things that once were our favourite things to do but now have just become fond memories. We talk about football, table tennis, sports, in general, Counter-Strike, board games, painting and making art, and so much more. We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane, and we urge you to send us what you miss doing. We'd love to talk about it! As always, the shownotes are on, and you can buy us a coffee to make sure this podcast does not become a thing we used to do. --- Send in a voice message:
At the end of the day, everyone wants to have some fun, but what's fun for us may not be fun for you. That's exactly where we go today: what is your idea of fun? We talk about conversation, walking, doing anything that brings you joy, how fun is necessary and how we make the most menial tasks fun. All in all, a fun episode, innit? Let us know what you think of this one on Instagram. Shownotes on the website, and you can always buy us a coffee (please!). --- Send in a voice message:
How Do You Make Time?

How Do You Make Time?


Productivity, habits, balance are all different words that lead to the single bottom line: time management and the art of making time. In this episode, we talk about how we make time, how we think about time, and in general, how we balance the triad of have, want and for others. We also talk about how environment plays a huge role in how well you manage time. Without wasting any more time here, why don't you dive into it? If you like it, and if it was worth your time, please feel free to support us by buying us a coffee! Shownotes are on the --- Send in a voice message:
All of us have a voice within ourselves. When used right, self-talk can be a fantastic comrade and motivator. When left to its own devices, it can be a terrible master. In this episode, which is the first ever episode that comes from the suggestion of a listener, we talk about how we talk to ourselves. We dive into the tone each of us uses, how it helps us, and the little hacks we've picked up and developed over the years. You can help us by buying us a coffee at As always, shownotes on --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode, we reflect over how over the past few months, we've become much happier with our lives, days and the general direction of things. Mainly, however, we've talked about the issues that pop up once happiness arrives and how to get past them. We talk about guilt, imagined troubles, embracing the simpler things, knowing it will end at some point and so much more. We'll let you be the judge of the rest. Let's hope you're happy with this slightly different episode. As always, shownotes are on and you can help us by buying us a coffee at --- Send in a voice message:
Rejections are dime a dozen. At least, that's where we stand. Or are we somehow at the brunt of more rejections than most people? We don't know but we know how we deal with them, and in this episode, that's what we talk about. We talk about our opposing perspectives, our agreements, our histories with rejections and more. We also share why we think it's overall a good thing and if there's something that should be normalized, it's rejections. Find shownotes on and support us at --- Send in a voice message:
While we often talk about ideas, we figured we rarely talk about ourselves in the most personal sense of it. So, we decided, what better way to meet in the middle than talk about our days as we live them currently? Here's a slightly different episode where we describe what we do, some of why we do it and how it helps us. We talk about waking up in the morning and why we feel early mornings are worth it, we talk about working late at night, and also how we balance things. And since no one is perfect, we also talk about the things we are trying to improve. We hope you like this one, and if you do, don't forget to buy us a coffee.

To be proactive is to plan ahead. At least, that is where we begin this episode and we take you through a little conversation about the ins and outs of planning, about where we falter, about why planning ahead works and how far can we see. All in all, this is an episode we are extremely proud of. It also happens to be the episode prompt that was decided five minutes before recording.

Are You Bored?

Are You Bored?


Let's talk boredom! In this episode, we talk about why we feel boredom is important, why every good thing comes out of boredom, why we feel the cheap ways to entertain ourselves like movies, streaming, Instagram need to be curbed a little. Overall, this episode has a strong opinion to it but we promise it's not boring. In any case, if you're bored enough to read this description, why not give it a listen? Shownotes are on and you can always make sure we don't get bored of doing this by incentivizing us with that coffee. --- Send in a voice message:
Aren't we all just stressed about stress? To be honest, there's so much to stress about, especially if you're in your twenties. In this episode, we talk about how we deal with stress, what works for us, what has helped us in the past, et al. We also touch upon personal responsibility, asking for help when needed and learning to accept we can't fix everything. All in all, we hope you'll take something away from this one.

What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading?


Everything needs a change of pace. In this episode, we simply talk about the books we are reading, what we love about them, what we learned in them and so on. We discuss Shoe Dog by Phil Knight, Wanting by Luke Burgis, The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa, and Think Again by Adam Grant. Feel free to share your book recommendations with us on The shownotes are on the website, and if you want us to keep doing this and help us buy more books, consider buying us a coffee here. --- Send in a voice message:
The trick to a happy life is how you manage change because change is going to come whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not, and whether you're ready or not. In this episode, we talk about how we deal and cope with change. We talk about the idea of a shiver, of making systems, of the smallest possible change and more. We hope we change your perspective on change to some degree. As always, shownotes on, and you can always buy us a coffee! --- Send in a voice message:
This is one of our most offbeat and open-ended episodes yet. In this one, we talk about wants and mimetic desire, from the ideas of René Girard, which we have been introduced to recently. In this conversation (which was interrupted thrice, actually), we talk about what we want from life, our picture of a perfect life, which parts of our lives don't come from influence and we leave you with an open-ended prompt: why do you want what you want?

Work is a doozy mainly because everyone likes working differently. A friend you start a podcast with may not be on the same page as you about communication. Your manager may not allow you enough freedom. Your company may have a lot of pencil pushers. All in all, everyone has a working style, and in this episode, we discuss precisely that: our working styles. We talk about what we enjoy and expect, what we hate, why our style works and why it may be a problem in some cases. There's lots of examples and plenty of value for the careful listener in this one. We hope you enjoy listening to it! For shownotes, go to, and if you like our work, consider buying us a coffee. --- Send in a voice message:
This very spontaneous episode starts a bit slower and speeds up along the way so bear with us! We're slowly trying to change the things we talk about on this podcast and this is a prime example of it! Let's just say we're making it more homely. Of course, with some self-improvement advice tucked in between. Speed is a dangerous drug or whatnot. If you don't jump, you remain stuck in the same place. Which one to pick, right? We've realised there's no one speed—we're always in transition. So, in this one, we talk about how (not where) we're coming from wherever we are, and how we are going forward! As always, the shownotes are on the and you can always buy us a coffee! --- Send in a voice message:
How To Stay Motivated?

How To Stay Motivated?


Remember that Shia Labeouf video? Yeah, we picture it sometimes too. Motivation is a tough sell, man, and it’s hard to do things regularly or every day. But we know a thing or two about it. In this episode, we share our philosophies around motivation. We’re all over the place which is a good thing for you—you get all perspectives and ideas in a neatly packed episode. Is that motivation enough to listen to this? As always, shownotes are on the website, we are always online on Instagram, and you can always keep us motivated by buying us a coffee. --- Send in a voice message:
Discipline, discipline, discipline. It's all we heard as kids. It's all we wish we had paid more attention to. Building habits, being more disciplined is definitely harder as an adult. Or so it seems. In this episode, we discuss our understand of living a discipline life. We also share what works for us, the tiny hacks that help us build it easily, some strong opinions included, this is an episode we did not even want to record, but recorded anyway. Talk about discipline. If you liked this conversation, feel free to share this or buy us a coffee. Also, as always, the shownotes are on the website. --- Send in a voice message:
To splurge or not to splurge? That is the question. In this episode, we dive into how we think about lifestyle and money. We share ideas and anecdotes, we talk about transparency with those in our lives, the upper limit of expenditure, and planning ahead of time. All that along with when it is okay to go wild with your finances. We had so much to say, the 15-minute limit had us grabbing onto so many ideas. If there's ever going to be a sequel episode, this would be the first one we talk about. As always, shownotes are on, you can always buy us a coffee to support us, and reach out on Instagram for more. We have started with neat episode takeaways and quotes recently which may add value to your feed! --- Send in a voice message:
