    EP 233: Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? with Frans de Waal

    EP 233: Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? with Frans de Waal

    What separates your mind from the mind of an animal? Maybe you think it's your ability to design tools, your sense of self, or your grasp of past and future - all traits that have helped us define ourselves as the pre-eminent species on Earth. But in recent decades, claims of human superiority have been eroded by a revolution in the study of animal cognition.

    Take the way octopuses use coconut shells as tools, or how elephants can classify humans by age, gender, and language. Take Ayumu, the young male chimpanzee at Kyoto University who demonstrates his species' exceptional photographic memory.

    Based on research on a range of animals, including crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and, of course, chimpanzees and bonobos, our guest today explores the scope and depth of animal intelligence, revealing how we have grossly underestimated non-human brains. He overturns the view of animals as stimulus-response beings and opens our eyes to their complex and intricate minds.

    With astonishing stories of animal cognition, his work challenges everything you thought you knew about animal - and human - intelligence. We welcome author of Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?, Frans de Waal.

    EP 232: Total Rethink: Why Entrepreneurs Should Act Like Revolutionaries with David McCourt

    EP 232: Total Rethink: Why Entrepreneurs Should Act Like Revolutionaries with David McCourt

    Our guest today argues that everything is changing fast, apart from how we behave. Our ways of thinking and making decisions have changed little, with the traditional wisdom being that improvements are best done incrementally, just as big, established corporations will increase profits incrementally and governments will change laws incrementally.  But the problems we now need to solve require a revolution in thinking and behavior in order to avoid disaster. He lays out the reality of the dangerous situation we find ourselves in and suggests solutions that empower everyone, including business people, politicians, diplomats, and teachers, to repair the damage we have already done, and prepare for the dramatic changes to come. Over a 30-year period our guest founded and bought 20 companies in nine countries. He is an Emmy Award winner and author of the WSJ best-selling book: “Total Rethink: Why Entrepreneurs Should Act Like Revolutionaries” we welcome David McCourt to the show

    EP 231: The Mom Test with Rob Fitzpatrick

    EP 231: The Mom Test with Rob Fitzpatrick

    Rob Fitzpatrick is author of "The Mom Test, How to talk to customers & learn if your business is a good idea when everyone is lying to you" His book shows us how customer conversations go wrong and how we can do better. They say you shouldn't ask your mom whether your business is a good idea, because she loves you and will lie to you. This is technically true, but it misses the point. You shouldn't ask anyone if your business is a good idea. It's a bad question and & everyone will lie to you at least a little.

    As a matter of fact, it's not their responsibility to tell you the truth. It's your responsibility to find it and it's worth doing right.

    Talking to customers is one of the foundational skills of both Customer Development and Lean Startup. We all know we're supposed to do it, but nobody seems willing to admit that it's easy to screw up and hard to do right.

    Create the Future and the Innovation Handbook: Tactics for Disruptive Thinking, Jeremy Gutsche

    Create the Future and the Innovation Handbook: Tactics for Disruptive Thinking, Jeremy Gutsche

    We've reached a point in time when everyone wants innovation, but most people don't know how to actually attain it. It's not easy, which is why there are so many failed brands and companies. In our era of AI, rapid change, disruption, and possibility, there are so many great opportunities within our grasp. However, smart, successful people consistently miss out. Their capabilities are limited by seven traps, and they rely on and repeat past decisions. They miss out on the potential of what could have been. If we could remove these traps, what could we accomplish? How much more successful could we be? Today’s book teaches us how to think disruptively, providing specific steps to create real innovation and change. It combines our guests high energy provocative thinking with tactics that have been battle tested through projects with leading innovators like Disney, Starbucks, Amex, IBM, Adidas, Google, and NASA.

    CEO of Trendhunter and author "Create the Future + the Innovation Handbook: Tactics for Disruptive Thinking, Jeremy Gutsche"
