Akimbo is an ancient word, from the bend in the river or the bend in an archer's bow. It's become a symbol for strength, a posture of possibility, the idea that when we stand tall, arms bent, looking right at it, we can make a difference.
Akimbo's a podcast about our culture and about how we can change it. About seeing what's happening and choosing to do something.
The culture is real, but it can be changed. You can bend it.

Simples.

Seth gets straight to the point, explains things succinctly and helps give you a kick up the pants!

Brilliant.

Simply Seth

From the first book I read, I think I was captured—by Seth. His ability to bring ideas into focus through a lens that’s uniquely his own is a real gift. Yet he makes everything he considers entirely relatable. He manages to find obscure connections and references to things and explain them in way that seems entirely natural. Like you knew them all along.
You’ll find yourself unconsciously nodding in agreement like one of those rear-window toy dogs with it’s head on a spring.
Spelling binding, intelligent and always worth your time.
So excited to see what Akimbo will become.

Fiction Engine ,

Pure Seth Wisdom

This is just Seth doing what Seth does best, sharing marketing wisdom with that simplicity and clarity that only he can seem to must.
