The UnGrind

“Don’t judge the judgement”  Jason and Joey are joined by special guest [Shane Walkland] as they tackle the subject of honesty.  Why are we afraid to be honest 100% of the time? Is it fear? Kindness? Self preservation? The theme of the show broadens to judgement, as Shane advises our hosts not to project shame onto their own thought processes. Instead of judging ourselves for judging, we should instead work on guiding our thought processes to compassion.  Never afraid to take on the big questions, Joey rounds up today’s chat by asking his guests whether society as a...

"You can't hustle your way to joy." - Jason Harmon  The world clearly wants Joey to talk about meditation - so let's talk about meditation. He confesses he's fallen out of the habit and a lot of people are asking him about it, just as Jason reports having a valuable experience with the '49 breaths' method.  This sparks a wider discussion about slipping out of positive routines, whether abstaining from alcohol, eating healthily or exercising. Both agree this is a perfectly human thing to do - the important thing being to learn your lesson from your most recent failure and apply it to...

Take a breathe. Pause for thought. Let it go. Today's chat starts with Jason recounting a recent experience of being stuck in a snow ditch while driving - and how he has learned to not waste his energy on being angry about the things we can't control. Joey similarly invokes the example of a woman who left him an expletive centred voicemail at 2am, highlighting the importance of letting things go.  The conversation moves on to unconsciousness - the things we all do without realising it - and the value in taking a pause, whether in conversation or whilst reflecting on ourselves. Jason...

“That which looks like prison to you looks like safety to him” - Michael Singer Jason joins Joey while donning a sparkling red cowboy hat, which sparks the conversation: would you wear such an item to an important business meeting?‘Of course not,’ comes Jason’s predictable reply, as the pair discuss the boundaries of our comfort zone - or, to use Michael Singer’s analogy, the cage that simultaneously provides security and prevents self-exploration. Moving on to broader discussions of our internal monologue, Jason reveals how he has learned to internalise bad behaviours which would...

The UnGrind

Joey confesses business is slow - but unlike similar times in the past, he's not going to let that be a reason for high anxiety. As per his new life philosophy, he is simply going to allow it to happen. The conversation moves onto anxiety in general, and how we need to learn to relax - not being busy does not have to mean feeling anxious. After distracting themselves with a tangent about military cadences, Jason and Joey conclude their chat by emphasising the importance of being present in a conversation. As per Jason Harmon's new t-shirt design: "Whoever you are, be there".

The UnGrind

"Our past and future selves rob our present selves of happiness when we allow ourselves to be derailed by negative thoughts" - Ken Honda Today’s theme is being present in the moment. Joey and Jason discuss at length the problems caused by concerning yourself with regrets of the past, or anxieties about the future, instead of tackling the here and now. Both our hosts discuss their own struggles with their internal monologue: Joey confesses that he’s found himself slipping into former bad habits of being anxious about finances, while Jason opens up about his struggles over the past year...

Are We Rotten to the Core? show art Are We Rotten to the Core?

The UnGrind

Is the human race rotten to the core? Are we capable of committing a selfless act? How can we be judgmental of others when we all make mistakes? Jason and Joey get deep and philosophical in today’s Ungrind, questioning man’s capacity for good via stops at an episode of Friends, a transaction at Buffalo Wild Wings, and the evil thoughts of Mother Teresa.

The UnGrind

Joey and Jason return for a brand new series: The Ungrind. They discuss how we should all strive to remove ‘the mask’ that conceals our vulnerabilities - that is, once Jason has removed the mask he is literally wearing for the show’s introduction. Having discussed the mask as a metaphor for the exhausting nature of putting on a front, the pair debate the importance of dress and appearance, and how they link to notions of professionalism. While Jason argues for sticking by societal norms, Joey pushes his argument that having to wear a suit and tie is a ‘brule’ (bullshit rule) that...
