The Self Help Podcast

Business >

The Self Help Podcast is a weekly podcast from Live in the Present. Featuring 2 out of the 3 members of our team (we’re working on Rie) it is, at it’s core, two lovely chaps discussing interesting things. The show is presented by Edward Lamb, our resident designer, day dreamer and tech loving geek. Ed’s sidekick is Sean Orford, a man who has spent a large chunk of his life talking to people and helping them overcome obstacles both large and small. A fully qualified psychotherapist, Sean has been there and bought the t-shirt. Put these two great minds together and you have 20-30 minutes of (we hope) interesting debate, discussion and rumination on a set topic. Ultimately, our goal with The Self Help Podcast is to give you, our dear listeners, a better understanding of the strange and marvellous world in which we live. Not only that, but we want to help you to understand you that bit better as well. You may not always hear what you want to hear. Our conversation may sometimes pick up on some of the more complex forms of human behaviour but hey, it’s a jungle out there.
