Episode 035: Colour Blindness and Pink Elephants

Episode Notes

I am colour blind. I don’t have the necessary red cones and in this episode I talk about my experience of being colour blind and how to affects me. From my early days of colouring in the sky purple and painting elephants in pink to my general feebleness as a cricketer there are several ways colour blindness has had an impact. And my career in bomb disposal never got off the ground… I cover the basics of the condition, how it is inherited, how it changes how I see blood, and the neat little Jedi mind trick I’ve realised I can now do.

Episode 034: Autumn Update and Reflection


Episode Notes

I have an update this week on my own activities and it’s a bit of a chance to reflect on some interesting episodes over the past few weeks. Episodes looking at the benefits of physical activity on mental health, suicide, Parkrun and the concept of ‘Zettelkasten’ have had a real impact for me. I also talk about the research paper on kinesiology that I promised to cover in this week’s Journal of Blokeology newsletter.
