Always interesting, always thought provoking

I started out with ‘the secret life of CEOs’ through recommendation, and have been hooked ever since

Why remove older episodes?

I really wish they would restore the back catalogue; I can’t think of any good reason not to have them here.

They’re available in another app and on the podcast website, but neither of these work with our smart speakers. First world problems indeed!
