Episode 19: A Confidence Boost

We're back after some technical glitches with a chinwag about confidence. Do you have any? We sure don't. In this episode, we talk about social anxiety, feeling a huge lack of confidence in our careers, friendships and life in general, and how we manage it.

[LIVE] Episode 18: Fulfilment

Our first LIVE episode, recorded in front of 60 super sound guests at the Workmans Club in Dublin on October 19th, 2018

In this day and age, when you’re being #influenced left, right, and centre, it’s harder than ever to find what truly makes you fulfilled. We’ll talk about the idea of “living your best life” (cringe), struggling to find a passion and the societal pressure of having to “have it all” to be a successful human.

Of course, we’ll have our fellow Bray-head, mate and singer/musician/activist/giant ride, Karen Cowley from Wyvern Lingo joining in on the convo too. PS. If you don’t know them, check them out HERE - they’re really very good.

Episode 17: Life After A Death

The subject of 'Death' is one of the last taboos. No one likes to think about their or their loved one's mortality. But it's something we are all touched by at some point in our lives. 

We recently got a message from a listener telling us about her tragic experience of her boyfriend passing away, and how she is struggling to feel normal again after the loss. 

Instead of including this in an 'Agony Aunt' style banty episode, we thought it warranted a full discussion.

We talk about our own losses, grief and living life after a death.

Episode 15: Let’s Talk About Stress, Baby

Work, money, relationships... what makes you stressed?!

We all know that stress can contribute to serious mental and physical health problems. So why don't we seem to be doing much about it?

We open up about what makes us the most stressed, and how we deal (or not deal) with it!

Episode 14: Boozin’

Off the back of two boozy weeks for Jane & Ro, we chat about the gargle! 

We put our drinking habits under the microscope and talk about why we drink, how it affects our moods, peer pressure and our worst drunk stories .

It’s not all doom and gloom though, we all drink for a reason and sometimes having a few casuals can be deadly.

Episode 13: Why is Social Media So Toxic?

Social media has literally changed the game. It has altered the way we interact with the world, and while there are huge benefits to this instant connection - there's also a massive amount of drawbacks to social media and the internet as a whole.

All of a sudden there are 10,000 more ways to be rejected and feel bad about yourself than there was before...that can't be good for our brains, right?!

In this episode, we talk about the pitfalls of social media, influencer bullshit and open up about our not-so-cool Insta-habits (we're total offenders of cringey captions). 

Tune in!

Episode 12: Friendships Are Hard

Keeping your school or childhood friends until adulthood is hard, and making new mates when you're a grown-up is even harder! We deep dive into friendship dynamics and our experiences with losing friends (whether by growing apart, moving abroad or full-blown betrayal) and talk about how we can approach trying to make new ones as we near 30 - it's a minefield, lads! 

This and loads more rants on the latest episode. 

 

OH, BY THE WAY...

Unlike many other Irish podcasts, we have no brand sponsorship or affiliations with media outlets. We rely on word of mouth to get the podcast out there and pay all overheads out of our own pockets.

Episode 11: Imposter Syndrome

Do you always make excuses for your success or feel like a fraud?

"Ah sure, I just got lucky...", "they're gonna realise I'm shite at my job any day now, and I'll probably be fired" or "My BF/GF probably just settled for me."

You, my friend, might have Imposter Syndrome. Don't worry though, so do we! We chat about our experiences with Imposter Syndrome, how it affects us and how we try to get over it or make it work for us.
