Four high-achieving students redefine what it means to be successful beyond the books.

Traditionally, a wooden spoon is given to the person who comes last in a race. Instead of lingering on the failure of coming last, that same wooden spoon can be put to work and become something useful.

The Wooden Spoon is a podcast about success, but more importantly, what success really looks like after you finish school and take on the real world. It's no longer defined by a grade - it's about living a successful life that is unique to you.

Improved My Mindset

I loved the first episode of this podcast! I was rejected from my 10th university this morning and this one hit me hard as it makes it double figures but the whole discussion about rejection and failure really helped to settle me about the whole experience. I can’t wait to listen to the other episodes but so far so good well done!

Enjoyed but...

A lovely podcast breaking down typical student issues. I enjoy the unique experiences shared by all individuals, and more importantly how they are valuable to those individuals.

But, what frustrates me is that their is a fair portion of the podcast that is spent on just complimenting one another. It happens every podcast and it become exhausting to listen to and, to some extent disingenuous. It's nice to appreciate one another's personalities, but sometimes it occurs to much. Ideally, I would enjoy a bit of small talk before we settle down into the conversation at hand.

I've enjoyed the relevant topics so far, and hope to continue listening. This is just constructive criticism.

Wanted to love it but didn’t.

I enjoy watching their videos, so I thought this podcast was going to be great. However it fell short of my expectations. The four of them don’t really work well together. I would rather see a podcast between just Eve and Jack, as I feel like they are more comfortable speaking to each other and have a better dynamic. Eve and Jack are better suited to the discussions due to being a graduate and a second year university student, so it means they have more life experience and knowledge about what university life is like. As a first year Ruby really doesn’t and Jade hasn’t even been to university, so really cannot speak about the subject yet. Ruby is not a good fit due to coming across as only wanting to show how smart she is by showing off about how many books she has read and how many quotes she knows. This is off putting and does not add to the discussions. Jade is too preachy and comes off as if she thinks that everything in life is so airy fairy when it really is not. The discussions and topics were also a bit superficial and nothing new or original was really covered by the podcast. I think that this first season should be its last, as only a change in format and presenters could justify it gaining another season.
