The Occupational Philosophers

A not so serious business podcast to spark imagination, creativity and curiosity

The Occupational Philosophers

What’s the show about?

Would you like to fulfill your potential to be the curious, creative, and imaginative star that you are, or would like to be? You already know in your bones that you are a creative beast, but maybe you just don't quite know how to unleash it – perhaps it’s an ignored talent in writing, leading innovation at work or simply underwater basket weaving.

Every fortnight, John, a mild-mannered, middle-aged British man with a love of curiosity and philosophy, and a slightly louder, middle-aged Australian surfer man, artist and published author on creativity chat with guests drawn from many walks of life who have woven creativity, curiosity and play into their everyday lives - and thrived personally and professionally in the process.

So, if you would like to listen to a “not so serious business podcast” and would like some thoughts, tools, and tips on staying curious, creative and asking those really great questions (and leading a most interesting life in the process) then this is the podcast you have been waiting for all your life. Well, maybe not all your life, but for a while…

And why a ‘not so serious business’ podcast’? Whilst your business (and ours) is a serious business, we felt that after the year of 2020 there is enough seriousness in the world without us adding any more. And we have tried it (being serious) and it just didn’t work.

- Sally Banks

"These boys are pure genius, particularly John, as he always seems to have something funny and insightful to say. Simon has a funny accent."
