In ep.36, The Occupational Philosophers explore the idea of tensions. Mmmm, what does the mean? 

Que music….”Tensions here, tensions there, tensions everywhere, yeah, yeah, yeah…”  Whilst this lyric may never win a grammy (but lets not put boundaries on what’s possible), tensions are everywhere


  • Working harder to achieve success v.s taking that little bit of extra time off to look after yourself 
  • The tension of breathing in v.s breathing out. Both are essential and one is not more important than the other – or are they? 
  • The tension of being a man child vs. not doing things that will break your ankle
  • The tension between John and Simon. John thinks Simon is an idiot bogan from Australia and Simon thinks John is and old posh grey head. 

So, tensions are everywhere and there is a real excitement in managing and navigating this. 

We hope you enjoy the show AND we hope you join us for another great year of a not-so-serious business podcast. 

And as The Occupational Philosophers always say: stay curious, make stuff, play more, have fun and date life. 

FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process.
