The Bobby Jagdev Podcast

This podcast has changed the personal and professional trajectory of my life. I dive deep into various domains with social innovators from around the world. I do this to widen the aperture of my lens. Socially. Intellectually. Culturally. And Spiritually. Each and every conversational experience has changed me. The velocity of change has been rather unexpected. I’ve also made a bunch of new friends along the way. One mission. Emotionally engaged long-form conversation. For which there are no boundaries to the domains.

Tracks

21. A Confluence of Cultures with Dalbir Rattan
There is a sound synonymous with devotional practices and sub-continental symphonies. A vibration from a twin-drummed instrument where its tonal depth is built into the hands of the musician.The instrument is the Tabla. And its composition – encoded in the musician – is a lexicon of love.Meet Dalbir Rattan. A Jedi of the percussive and mystical. A musician, teacher and artist, devoted to a centuries-old classical order.Read more...

20. Audacious Ambition with Emma France
Ambitions are cultivated by a stream of audacious and consistent actions. Actions that propel us beyond, self-imposed limits. And accelerate us past the fringe of our imaginations.Personally; I fear nothing more than potential; untapped and ambition; undiscovered. And through this conversation, I’ve discovered that the attainment of what – once – may have seemed outlandishly impossible, is done so by nurturing an imaginative optimism. Meet corporate accountant turned ultra-endurance swimmer Emma France.Read more...

19. Soldier to Seeker with Gavin Watson
As humans we seek belonging above all else. In our professional, physical, emotional and spiritual relationships. We survive, we achieve and we love through belonging.Our relationships within these domains are seasonal. More nuanced than the output of a planet’s axial tilt. We can embark on a new professional season with little or no change to a physical one. And we are often unsure of when our seasons may change.John Lennon wrote in the song Beautiful Boy - “life is what happens to you, when your making other plans.” And sometimes an event, a decision, or simply “life happening” can project every domain where we seek belonging, into a new season. My guest on this episode of the podcast; (Sgt.) Gavin Watson was making other plans and life happened. Read more...

18. Going Nose To Tail On Food With Steve Guy
Cultures were forged by the food they consume and the ingredients that they once traded. Centuries of specialised crafts – which are still livelihoods – were developed around animal-based products. I’m becoming more aware of how the rapidly changing global narrative around meat consumption is unfairly denigrating cultural identities. Industrialisation and unethical animal-based farming practices have now been identified as a significant contributor to global warming. Our demand. Our overconsumption. And our distorted relationship with food is the root cause.Read more...

17. Drifting Between Liminal Communities with Rev. Jeff Grant
Meet Rev. Jeff Grant. Once a drifter. Now a traveller.  One who through suffering, pain and wreckage discovered a community. Hiding in the shadows. Under the abject shame of rejection.

His divinity – granted by the seminary – and protected by the state. Enables him to provide confidential counsel to those in need of crisis support. A crucial nexus for travellers that have just entered a liminal state. Read more...

16. Rejecting The Patriarchy With Vanessa Osage
Vanessa Osage is a journeywoman. On a voyage of remediation to mend a loophole in the schooling system. One that has concealed the historic sexual exploitation of children. And a governance model – that unfortunately – still fails to adequately protect and serve our most treasured assets. Our children. Vanessa is a sexuality educator, president of the Amends Project and founder of the Justice CORPS. As a sexuality educator, she operates on the fringes of sexual health. Her personal mandate is to pull this conversation out of the perimeter and into the mainstream. She does so by honouring this topic with the honesty and reverence it really deserves.Read more...

13. Sparking Connection Through Storytelling with Marsha Shandur
When we are attracted to those who are successful or inspire us. It’s their innate ability to tell a story. That’s the attribute that charms us and creates a spark. A spark is likely to catalyse a physical or emotional connection. And it’s from this connection that the storyteller can truly showcase their message, their brand and their goal. This is a conversation on how we best illuminate ourselves in the presence of others. Read more...

12. Bravery in the Face of Ethical Uncertainty with Olivia Gambelin
The human condition is a complex and unpredictable amalgamation of multiple intelligence characteristics.  Our ability to make effective decisions requires us to make linguistic, spatial, emotional and ethical judgements. Artificial Intelligence doesn’t yet cover everything we perceive to be intelligence.  Computer-based data models, assumptions, algorithms and even ethical frameworks are provided by humans. Containing the same intentional and unintentional bias as their creators.Read more...

11. Deconstructing a Difficult Conversation with Nicole Posner
Conflict is a regular occurrence in business, work and life. I often walk away from a difficult conversation and later kick myself when I realise what I should have said.  I like to believe that I’m a fairly empathetic individual. Many of the characteristics around empathy are key to effectively engaging in a difficult conversation. However, my version of empathy can often be heavily weighted around my emotions. That can be advantageous, but unbalanced emotions in a moment of conflict can be fuel to a fire. Read more...

A future without his wife, without his assets and without self-worth.Read more...

There is a solution and an accelerant in meeting global carbon to net-zero emission targets.
