Voices in the Dark
Weekly
 
At Voices in the Dark we bring you powerful, mind- and soul-expanding conversations about real life psychology, philosophy, psychedelics, spirituality, social dynamics and much more. We’re a podcast, a blog, and a community of likeminded individuals who want to become the best versions of themselves. We’re dedicated to never stop Learning How To Human. Our mission is to entertain, provoke, inform, and make you question everything you think you know. Have you ever been on the wrong end of 'of ...

We're filled with sexual energy, and it's down to us to harness this force and use it to transform our creative and business efforts into 'genius'-level achievements! At least, that's what Napoleon Hill tells us... but it becomes increasingly clear over the course of the chapter that he may have had a pretty hefty sex-drive and potentially shap ...…
 
What would you do if your physiotherapist's hands started wandering? Would you even know howto say 'stop'? Could you be sure something sexual was actually taking place before it was too late? And what if it wassexual and you wished it hadn't happened afterwards? This happened to Jon not so long ago. He's still not sure what to think about it. T ...…
 
This week's foray into the world of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich is all about the subtle art of making decisions. Procrastination is the destroyer of so many dreams, but how can we successfully combat it? What makes a 'good decision', anyway, and how can we prime ourselves to make them on the regular? The stakes are higher than they migh ...…
 
It's 2019 and that means it's time for our annual catch-up and reflection episode as we contemplate how the year's gone, what we achieved, what we didn't, and where we see the podcast (and our lives) going in the future! This is the first episode we've recorded since Jon moved to Thailand, so Andrea grills him on what life is actually like half ...…
 
When it comes to self-help, everyone loves a good old fashioned list, and Napoleon Hill, as the man who practically invented the genre, has got plenty of them. But this list is particularly important. Here he delves into the most common causes of failure in life – the things which cheat us of our true potential. You'll recognise many items on t ...…
 
The second instalment of our still-not-quite-entitled catch-up series in which Jon and Andrea discuss everything that's been hitting their radars over the past week. This week, we trash gender studies, take a deep dive into what makes movies great, and Andrea tries to explain how he ended up at a major international event at which Nigerian lead ...…
 
What makes a good leader? What makes a bad one? We certainly know the difference when we have to work for them, but do we really know what it takes to cultivate and sustain respect? In this episode of our series dissecting Napoleon Hill's perennial classic, Think and Grow Rich, we delve into the crucial differences between power and influence, ...…
 
With Jon moving to Thailand in the next few weeks, we've decided to start a new regular series where we catch up, share our experiences and dig deep into the cool and weird ideas and situations we've been encountering. You, dear listeners, have repeatedly asked us to share more of what we get up to in life and in the making of the show, so here ...…
 
We've been talking about Napoleon Hill's wildly popular self-help book, Think and Grow Rich, for the past few weeks, but whatever we make of the text itself, the question remains: Does this stuff actually work? So this week we've got a treat for you – our guest, the brilliant poet and writer JJ Bitters, tells us exactly what happened to him whe ...…
 
This week we explore Napoleon Hill's theories about using the power of the imagination in order to Think and Grow Rich. Without an active, well-oiled imagination, we don't dream big, we don't make plans, and therefore we never take action. But, this being Napoleon Hill, he takes things to the next level very quickly. In short, Napoleon thinks w ...…
 
This week we tackle two chapters from Napoleon Hill's perennial bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, which focus on the importance of (you guessed it) auto-suggestion, but also on the importance of the right kind of knowledge. We need knowledge to achieve anything, but Napoleon insists that we don't waste time on any knowledge which can't be direct ...…
 
Napoleon Hill, author of the mega-seller Think and Grow Rich, believes that the single biggest thing holding you back in life is a lack of self-confidence. Thankfully, he's provided us with the tools to overcome the problem... Or has he? In this episode, we try to understand what Hill means by having 'faith' – is this an irrational belief in yo ...…
 
To keep the podcast going, we need your support! Please consider making a pledge on Patreon to help us meet our target to ensure we can continue delivering high quality conversations about Learning How To Human – thank you! Napoleon Hill, legendary author of Think and Grow Rich, thinks that all thought has a tendency to manifest itself in reali ...…
 
In Part 2 of Think and Grow Rich, we find Napoleon Hill riding the knife-edge between profound insight and total lunacy. He tells us that, in order to achieve anything, we need a burning Desire, clearly worked out, and then repeated to ourselves every morning when we get up, and every evening before we go to bed. Now, while it's certainly impor ...…
 
Time for something new here at Voices in the Dark. By popular demand, we're going to dissect the original self-help classic, Think and Grow Richby Napoleon Hill. This baby has sold over 100 million copies and shows no sign of slowing down. More importantly, it's the backbone of allself-help and personal development books. Scratch the surface of ...…
 
This is a special episode of the podcast where we take stock, see where we're at, and think about where we're going to take the show next. We've both been hitting some hard times, personally and professionally, so making the show has been a challenge. In this episode, we open up about some of the shit we've been dealing with, and reflect on wha ...…
 
As psychedelics increasingly hit the mainstream, we need to educate ourselves about their risks as well as their incredible potential for healing and growth. While the headlines keep on coming about psychedelics boosting creativity and 'curing' depression, there's far less accessible information available about the care and precautions involved ...…
 
These days, everyone's claiming to be 'a little bit OCD', but the popularisation of the term has been at the cost of understanding the condition. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a spectrum which isn't simply about having fanatical cleaning habits and lining up your bathroom paraphernalia in height-order. OCD can be immensely challenging and ou ...…
 
After ten years of blood, sweat and tears, Jon's book has finally emerged into the world! It hit the Amazon Bestseller lists on launch day and has been receiving excellent reviews. This week, we put Jon in the hot seat to talk about it. In the shadow of the Gulag, Soviet citizens were still cracking jokes. They had to. Drawing on diaries, inter ...…
 
For all the tales coursing through the veins of the internet about life-changing experiences brought on by a cup of Ayahuasca or a drop of LSD, something absolutely crucial is getting lost. The hardest part, in fact: Integration. Coming back from the jungle or back from some astral realm doesn't add up to much if you have to turn over everythin ...…
 
Open relationships. We've all heard about them. But how do they work? Would one be right for you? And how can you even broach the subject with your partner? And then, if you get into one, do you need to set rules? Can they change? Do you need to ask for permission beforehand, or take video footage to share with your partner afterwards? It gets ...…
 
Why do flame wars happen? Why are so many people on the Left shutting down free speech through no-platforming? Do Social Justice Warriors even know what they're trying to do? How can we have conversations with people we don't like without it degenerating into an emotional bloodbath? This week, we try to answer all these questions and more as we ...…
 
The devil is in the detail... and that's the problem. This week is about not becoming obsessed with detail at the expense of actually doing or creating something yourself. It's about not trying to control things by over-planning and over-preparing, lest you want to spend your whole life getting 'ready' to live. Drawing on the horrifically-named ...…
 
Consent. We intuitively think it should be simple – 'yes or no?' – but the Me Too movement and the maelstrom of Hollywood abuse scandals show us just how naive that idea is. So we need to talk about it. This episode we explore what consent is, how it works, and when it all gets confusing, strange, and scary. This is a very challenging subject t ...…
 
Centuries before the arrival of social media and rolling news channels, people were still chasing happiness and still finding themselves miserable as a result. Seneca picks apart the issue, pre-empting 21st century psychological and sociological studies, and his words of wisdom have a lot to teach us about how to actually enjoyour lives. Lucili ...…
 
Is there anything more immediately disturbing than hearing that someone's been talking about you behind your back? Whatdid they say? Whydid they say it? But wait... why do we care so much any of this? This episode is all about gossip and reputation; if you should care what other people say about you; and whether keeping some things secret from ...…
 
This week it's all about power, corruption, jealousy and pride! Do the things you own end up owning you, or, despite everything Seneca tells us, are there some things which should always be saved if your house burns down? But before all that, Lucilius has been hanging out with another philosopher and Seneca isn't pleased about it. This new dude ...…
 
It's time to get spiritual this week as Stoicism starts to merge almost imperceptibly with an even more ancient philosophy: Buddhism. This is Letter 41: 'On the God within Us', and it not only draws us into the realm of motivation and growth, but also how we fundamentally value and think about ourselves. The Buddha taught that we all have 'Budd ...…
 
This week Seneca's on the war path about oral. Communication, that is. Frustrated by Lucilius's admiration for a gabbling philosopher, Seneca lays out how to speak well and speak effectively in public and to others. This rapidly brings up a bunch of issues we face every day: how do we convince other people? How can we speak with ease and style? ...…
 
This week Seneca's got a thing or two to say about over-indulgence and ending up controlled by our vices. Drawing from Letter 39, 'On Noble Aspirations', we explore how to indulge without losing control; the value of moderation (but only in moderation); and whether it's really possible to become desensitised to anything. First off, it seems Luc ...…
 
Everyone's heard about open relationships, but what does it really mean to be in one? Just mentioning the concept can provoke intense debates, but because it touches on so many fears, insecurities and assumptions, those debates often leave us with bruised egos and little understanding. So we decided to invite someone really special to talk with ...…
 
Here at Voices in the Dark we're doing our best at Learning How To Human, but sometimes we – like everyone else – face some stumbling blocks. This is a special episode where we share some recent (and dramatic) hiccups along the road for both of us. Each of us took a trip recently. Jon went to stay in a cabin in the woods in the middle of nowher ...…
 
Drawing on Letter 38 from Seneca ('On Quiet Conversation'), this episode digs into the immense value of real, face-to-face conversation for all aspects of our lives. Emails and texts can be great, but sitting down in person changes the game, whether it's a massive business deal, or a chance to (re)connect with another person. It's almost a medi ...…
 
This next instalment in our Sex & Relationships Seriesis a stunning episode that brings us into dialogue with some of the most important, yet often-ignored, parts of the human condition. You might not've heard about Chemsex, but it's a growing epidemic that's not only destroying lives, but which also tells us a lotabout how we think, feel and t ...…
 
This week we riff on Seneca's Letter 47, 'On Allegiance to Virtue' – it's short, but richly rewarding to dig into. It's about how life can seem like a battle – an unfair one – that we never consciously agreed to, yet are thrust into the midst of. How can we change our experience of life into a glorious adventure rather than a horrible, Sisyphea ...…
 
This isn't the first timewe've crossed paths with Peter Sage, a world-renowned speaker, serial entrepreneur, author, and mentor... But to say that a lothas changed since our first meeting would probably win us a medal at the understatement olympics. Since we saw him last, Peter's life was turned upside-town when he became the only civil prisone ...…
 
Riffing on Letter 35 from Seneca ('On the Friendship of Kindred Minds'), this one takes us deep into the nature of human connections and how we can find true love and true friendship. Seneca's decided that Lucilius just isn't keeping up – he's not ready to become a true friend – an equal – of Seneca's, and Seneca is growing restless. He urges h ...…
 
Poet, writer, philosopher and artist JJ Bitters joins us this week midway through a tour through Europe and Africa. And he's just come out of the closet... OK, not thatcloset! JJ originally wanted to create art without ego, so he chose the pseudonym 'The Unknown' to keep is identity separate from his art. But can you survive and get the word ou ...…
 
What's wrong with being a Nice Guy? Isn't that what everyone wants in a partner? No, they don't. Nice Guys aren't nice. Nice guys are a problem – for themselves and for the people they want to seduce. Because Nice Guys aren't what you (or they) think they are. They're the people pleasers who never truly ask for or say what they need. They're th ...…
 
You know those people who can quote passages of Shakespeare, have read all the great novels, and who always seem to have an aphorism to hand? Well, fuck them. Having a moribund storehouse of other people's knowledge isn't the same as being smart, let alone creative. In Letter 33, Seneca doesn't want us to learn the Cliff Notes version of anythi ...…
 
This one's about staying the course, knowing how to recognise progress from how it feels, and the dangers of internalising other people’s narratives of what your life should be. In Letter 32 Seneca wants us to stay the course, rather than endlessly making fresh starts and chasing fads. As he puts it, 'We break up life into little bits and fritt ...…
 
After a successful Go Fund Me campaign, Jon raised enough money to spend an intensive weekend retreat with coach, speaker, author and emotional terrorist Philip McKernan. And he's still reeling from what happened. So what happened, and how's Jon doing today? It was an intimate event at a hotel in a tiny village. They spent most of it locked in ...…
 
This week: when and how to give advice; how people avoid seeing what's right in front of them; how to avoid getting overwhelmed in life; and what human connection and life are truly all about. Riffing on Letter 29 from Seneca, this episode is a corker. Advice is a dangerous game: when and how you give it can change your life. Don't waste energy ...…
 
Can psychedelics cure Autism? It's a question researchers are only beginning to ask, but VITD's own Dre has already run the experiments – on himself. Over the past few years, he's taken MDMA and LSD to help connect the parts of his brain that allow most people to understand others, feel their emotions, and make lasting connections. But before w ...…
 
Does travel broaden the mind, or are you simply running away from your problems? Can self-discovery happen on the road, or is it always a case of 'wherever you go, there you are'? This episode draws on Letter 28 ('On travel as a cure for discontent'), in which Seneca takes Lucilius to task for jumping around from place to place, trying to find ...…
 
Welcome to our new series on Sex & Relationships! VITD has long been about psychology, mental health, social dynamics and self-development, and these are all vital themes in the realms of sexuality and interpersonal connection. But usually most of us just don't talk about them. They're vital parts of the human experience, yet we tend to just fo ...…
 
These days Saud Juman is a clean-cut guy with a successful healthcare business dedicated to helping doctors and medical staff actually take care of themselves. But it wasn't always this way. Saud's journey has been one from darkness to light. Back when he was a college student, Saud fell into the underworld of Toronto club life, embroiled in a ...…
 
What's the difference between wisdom and experience; between faking it till you make it, or truly growing as a person; and why should you never try to claim you’re a master? Drawing on letter number 26, 'On Death and Dying', this one seems at first to be all about preparing for death and yet, beneath the surface, it's really all about embracing ...…
 
Everyone's obsessed with 'the hustle' these days – it seems like we're meant to be on duty promoting ourselves and pushing to the next level 24/7... But what does 'hustling' even mean? Are we meant to be glued to LinkedIn, trying to find that one magical connection that'll launch us into the stratosphere? Or diving into the world of SEO – optim ...…
 
How and when to help other people; whether we can really get anybody to change after a certain age; how to check we’re not also in need of correction (and whether we should calibrate that by looking at everyone else, or turning to our inner compass). Drawing from Letter 25, this one is all about timing, making change, and the hard work that alw ...…
