Darren and Dermot are two Irish housemates who want to get better at life. They know it's possible to thrive in their personal, social and professional lives, but they keep getting distracted by urgent tasks, social media and bright shiny objects. In this podcast they will commit to a monthly challenge to keep them focused throughout the year. Join them and you too could become a total legend at life.

Dermot is a software developer and psychotherapist, with a penchant for long words and malapropisms. When not absent-mindedly staring into the middle-distance, Dermot enjoys yoga, tennis and hand-picked botanicals. He is seeking a slower-paced life with more space to focus on the important things. Darren reckons that Dermot could be a millionaire if he cared at all about money.


Darren is the CEO of an Irish non-profit organisation. When not knee-deep in social innovation he loves meditation, surfing, football and flotation tanks. He dreams of living life at total ease - of being highly productive and successful in all the old-fashioned ways but thriving personally through it all. Dermot wonders how Darren gets through each day with such little attention to the detail of real life.
