Great stuff

I love the 7 step bullet proof problem solving process, and would love more of these type of episodes. It made me buy the book.

While some reviews appear not to like the vocabulary of the podcast, it has taught me a fair few words I did not know and would like to adopt.

Keep up the great work.

Far too US centric view

Some good topics and interesting research - but let down by presenters only really talking about the US… eg discussion on automation and AI from the “GLOBAL McKinsey institute” - talked literally only about the US market 😂.

I also bought the book after listening to the podcast.
