More about the podcast

In the Flip Thinking Podcast Berthold Gunster talks to a new guest every week about his or her problem. This could be anything: fear of failure, a bipolar disorder, fear of public speaking, not speaking your mind, being too ambitious, weight struggles. Together they look for ways to make the problem feel lighter or disappear altogether.

They can do this in several ways. Sometimes they can simply solve the problem, but more often than not they’ll find that they have to let go of expectations or views they hold about themselves. At other times they can only observe the fact that there is a problem, without judging it. And in some cases, they can flip think the problem.
