Ross on the Maintain the Design Podcast - Part 1

Season 3 Episode 43

Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 3 Episode 43 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here. 

P _Soupers – thanks for tuning in – this week the tables are turned – and it’s me in the hotseat for the Maintain the Design podcast.

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun to nourish your mind to flourish at work.

So this episode is a bit different – you’ll hear me being interviewed by Thato Mathebula and G-Man, from the Maintain the Design podcast based in Johannesburg. The guys were kind enough to send me their edit of the interview and I've made it into a two parter for the P-Soupers. The  questions they asked gave me a great workout on a Sunday morning in January.

In Part 1- we talk about my work and the science that underpins it, some of the issues I work on, how I manage my own behaviour and I have a go a giving some advice to the younger generation.

I was really chuffed to be asked by the guys – their podcast is about creative culture and lifestyle in various industries and niches, such as business, art, music and fashion. They say “Not being limited in our topics of conversation is our vibe!” I really like their approach and the range of their exploration. Their recent guests have included the rappers Flow Jones Jr and Jay Hood, a pioneer in South African dance and urban, culture Mernoly Simba and pro league athlete and trainer Chris Raubenheimer where they discussed, amongst other things, the toxic elements of gym lifestyle.
