17 episodes

Hosts Francesca Levy and Rebecca Greenfield navigate the productivity industry by way of their own experiences. In each episode, one of the two becomes a human guinea pig as she tries to solve a specific work-related problem. Using the advice of so-called productivity experts, the duo tackles obstacles like ineffective to-do lists, overflowing inboxes and unruly meetings. Self-improvement is, by some estimates, a $10 billion sector, but can any of the productivity hacks these experts preach actually improve Francesca and Rebecca's work lives? Follow along with their attempts, insights and missteps, and maybe find a solution that will work for you.

    Introducing: Breakthrough

    Introducing: Breakthrough

    On Breakthrough, a new series from the Prognosis podcast, we explore how the pandemic is changing our understanding of healthcare and medicine. We start with an examination of long Covid, a mysterious new illness that has stumped doctors attempting to treat symptoms that last for months and potentially years. It has changed the way hospitals work and forced healthcare officials to prepare for the next pandemic. Covid has also opened the door to revolutionary technology: messenger RNA vaccines. It’s a technology that never could have been proven so quickly outside the crucible of that first pandemic year, 2020, and it holds big implications for the future of medicine. Breakthrough launches on Oct. 19. Subscribe today on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

    Introducing: Blood River, A New Podcast From Bloomberg

    Introducing: Blood River, A New Podcast From Bloomberg

    The killers of Berta Caceres had every reason to believe they’d get away with murder. More than 100 other environmental activists in Honduras had been killed in the previous five years, yet almost no one had been punished for the crimes. Bloomberg’s Blood River follows a four-year quest to find her killers – a twisting trail that leads into the country’s circles of power.
    Blood River premieres on July 27.

A shade below Gameplan

Love these gals and how they tackle common workplace issues that we all probably spend more energy at ignoring than doing our jobs. Was a huge fan of Gameplan. The experimental nature of this cast is a little kitschy, but still a podcast I’d recommend.

Irreparably Superficial and Uninteresting

The only thing these women seem to have mastered is missing the point.

Info great, voices awful

There is no need for uptalking or vocal fry in a podcast.
