About the show

Honest talk from a 1971-born Scotsman who got sober in 2005 and quit opioids in 2017. No holds barred - philosophy, spirituality, addiction, recovery, mental health, pressures of life, gratitude — these are all parts of my life that I talk about at length.

    One of the challenges I'm finding is that I'm gathering loads and loads of content, tagging it, filing it etc. but not actually getting to the editing and publishing. It's going to take a lot more tweaking till I get the balance right, but I do know that

    25 September 2019  |  26 mins 22 secs

    I ponied up for the subscription to OmniFocus as my project management app. I used it back in the v1 days and loved it. I'm not sure why I stopped really; I guess my life became manageable and predictable. That is no longer the case and I really do need a

    Coming out of a low depressive spell and suffering from a headache, so I took the last of my Co-codamol 30mgs. It doesn't make for the most compelling of content, but I figured I'd publish it anyway so I'm publishing my thoughts when I'm in all moods and

    One of the biggest challenges in becoming a freelance content creator is time management. To that end I'm trying out a couple of apps, including the mighty OmniFocus. That's probably what I'll stick with.

    10 September 2019  |  23 mins 9 secs

    Another day up the hill with the dogs, then home to prepare for going out to film Scott Nicol in Crofters. 
    I talk a bit about Trello, an app I'm looking at for productivity. The jury's still out. OmniFocus still might be the app I turn to, but it's not f
