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.

Godin being Godin

It’s kinda like you were Seth’s Uber driver on the way to the airport and he needed to get something off his chest or out of his head. It’s gold cause it’s Seth.

Go and make a rocket

This is an AMAZING podcast. I love Seth’s honesty and knowledge. He is my fav writers of all time. I used to translate his books before learning English because I couldn’t stop reading his work.

Remarkable & inspiring

I am late to the Akimbo party…but so glad I got here. Seth’s wit, wisdom, and war stories make the perfect blend to create an engaging podcast. The benefit of being late to the party is I’ve got hundreds of back episodes to binge! Enjoy this distinctive podcast created by a true expert.
