About Us

Born of an epiphany with a couple of friends in a bar that no longer exists in a city I no longer live in, Critically Drinking is the combination of critical review and audits on business, pop culture, content, and concepts without the filters that sober minds cause us.As consumers of content, services, and products, we are all natural critics but are more often than not focused on what people are comfortable hearing rather than what we really think and feel about something.As in life, Critically Drinking is a mash-up. The musings of a scholar-practitioner doing their best to blend criticism with pop culture and human nature. Opinions shared on the podcast are those of the individual and as such are to be taken as no reflection on current or future employers and partners.We solemnly swear that we are up to no good...Introduction and closing music sounds are imported from FreeSound under a creative commons license.

Episode 23: Something I've been meaning to tell you

EToday's episode is all about creating clarity about what content in the media is doing to our consumption habits and how it makes us feel. First, I need to make a confession. I got busy. Now busy isn't an excuse for anything, but busy was quickly followed by being overwhelmed. The messages in the media and the content I was consuming became more and more hateful during the lead up to the US election last year. I was saddened to discover that friends and relatives were trolls and in some cases full of anger and venom and that was something that I just couldn't take. So... I went dark. From social media and content creation to recording and publishing episodes of this podcast, I chose silence. What I forgot during this time of hiding my head in the sand was that the only way to slow down the hate and ugly in the world is to dilute it with good. If we take in good, that is what we start to see in the world around us. Things like bias and hate can only grow if their messages outnumber t...

Episode 22- You'll Never Regret Having Done It

ELucy O’Connor is a lot of things, but more than anything she is human. Giving up a day job with an approved career path and a secure income is not a luxury that all of us can afford, but it’s exactly what she did. I know that running off to chase a dream is something that a lot of us fantasize about doing, but are afraid of the ramifications. Almost a year ago Lucy quit her 9-5 to chase her dream of working in a new field all the while documenting her story on her Monday Hustle website and associated social media accounts. Telling her story with honesty and humility is what has caused her to not only create a connection with her readers, it has helped her to create a space where reflections on victories can be celebrated right beside stories of the hard times. The creation of her public persona has actually served to bring her even closer to her family as she shares her feelings in real time with the world. Unfortunately, not every day has been fun. Being lonely, losing friends, a...

Episode 21- Oh Hey! Girls Drink Beer

EThe phrase madly in love with beer doesn't even begin to describe Ren Navarro. As one of the five founders of The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies, you would guess that she has been known to imbibe in fermented hops and barley from time to time, but she is so much more than just a gal who drinks beer. The Society is pretty focused on being a part of a fully inclusive environment and while they stand behind the ladies only until midnight rule it isn't a hard stop. "You identify as a woman, you like beer. Come on down". SOBDL is not just about beer either. They also are proud supporters of the Canadian Women's Foundation and as Ren puts it "Use their powers for good" by drinking beer and supporting the cause "how could you go wrong with that?" It's added up to a lot of support raising more than $10,000 for the charity since they started. "How is it that the beer industry says that women don't drink beer?" -Ren Navarro Telling us that her "inner artist likes the creation" of beer is jus...

Episode 20: The Gift Of Enthusiasm

EWhen you are introduced to Tesh Randall you are pretty sure that she is just another girl next door type who moved to a beach town, but then again we all know that first impressions are often wrong. Following a known path isn't what Tesh has done and she is quick to tell you that while she knows she might have missed out on some experiences she has no regrets about her unconventional route so far. Starting in childhood being home-schooled, she has certainly used a different map than most to reach success. Self publishing her first book at 19 and pushing on to create unconventional companies as opportunities present themselves Tesh and her partner are not wasting a minute. Leveraging every opportunity that comes their way has served to make her an enthusiastic supporter of other people's projects as much as her own, but admitting that "You can’t force your own enthusiasm and onto someone else", was the first step in realising that not everyone wants to be an entrepreneur.

Episode 19: Quiet Revolutions

ELoni Davis is more than just a professor. This passionate lady decided to return to grad school to complete her Ph.D even though she already had a busy consulting business in organisational design. Despite having all of the academic credentials one might need to be an expert, Loni has remained passionate about staying engaged in her own personal learning journey. She says of her classroom experience that "It feels sometimes like I’m in a live lab because I’m learning. I’m learning so much." It's this desire to be both instructor and student that make her an exciting professor to watch and learn from. "I think a revolution needs to be started, even if it’s a quiet revolution of academics experimenting....I’d like to see myself and others....take more risks" -Loni Davis Ph.D While quick to admit that there is a luxury to moving into professional academics with a successful consulting practice, Loni credits curiosity and a desire to generally face challenges as a member of the wor...

Episode 18- The First And Best Bit Of Advice

EWhen you talk to a guy like Will Dayble you think about his CV. You see a list of successful companies and imagine that the person you are about to chat with is going to be a poster boy for business school approaches. That is decidedly NOT the case. Yes, he (and his partner) have created a few really outstanding companies like The Fitzroy Academy which is revamping education and Squareweave which is doing digital ethically. Both businesses are blossoming under his leadership but it isn't his accomplishments that stand out when you speak with him. Instead, what you hear is a passionate guy with a pragmatic approach to problem solving. Truthfully, he is pretty hard not to like. Will advocates for doing socially responsible business with a profit first mindset. While he admits that "It’s a bit schizophrenic", that hasn't stopped him, and his bottom lines are proving that this is not the wrong answer. "Understanding that maybe there’s better definitions for doing good and making money...

Episode 17- More Than One Project In The Drawer

EWhen you trip across a talented lady like Kathryn Burnett you think of all of the things that she has done. After spending more than a decade in writing for television, Kathryn has produced and written plays, designed and facilitated workshops and much more. As an individual her writing and production credits are impressive, but when you add that to the list of people she has helped create something of their own, you discover a talent that goes beyond the page. When asked about how sharing opportunities might limit the chances she has to be successful in such a competitive industry she tells us that "the biggest competitor I have is myself". This universal truth in the creative landscape comes through even more clearly when she discusses how there are always going to be more writers than occasions for getting the work seen. It's this idea that motivates her to keep working on projects new and old as it is critical "to have more than one project in the drawer" as this will help to be...

Episode 16 If You Love It, It's Not Work

EOn what appears to be a life journey towards having tried her hand at everything, Deb Maybury proudly considers herself a Jack of all Trades. When asked how sometimes seemingly disconnected topics keep pushing her down new paths, she says "I’m following my skill sets, my interests, and what I love to do." When asked how she fits it all into her busy schedule, Deb tells us that priorities are critical to her success, and that sometimes something has to go in order for something new to come in. "It’s more about what I choose not to do I think." She talks candidly about how all of her passions are fuelled by her desire to never stop learning and tells us that "In order to be the best in anything you have to practice. And practice, and practice." No matter what though, we have to love what we do in order to discover mastery. "If you love it, it’s not work." Deb's desire to live a life "always being curious" has led her down a number of paths from taking on every sport she can, facili...

Telling us that about her own evolution cannot be unwound from the countries that she has lived in or the friends she has made is just the start of her story.
