Not Overthinking is a weekly podcast about life, happiness, and the human condition.

It's us two brothers, Ali and Taimur Abdaal, occasionally joined by guests, talking about things to help us think, do, and be better. Things like social interaction, lifestyle design, mental models- things that are hard to examine, but important to explore. And hopefully, things that make for a fun and interesting chat every week.

We'd love for you to join us 😀
