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.

deeply important

this is easily my favorite podcast. I skip past the repetitive bits right to the meat—when there is meat on that bone it’s good. Keep rollin’, Seth!

I listened to Startup School in a rental car two years ago in freezing Milwaukee while I visited my girlfriend at the time. I had ambition but no mentors or guideposts to steer me. Seth was exactly that because I spent that whole day with my journal a pen in various coffee shops while I took all my ideas to task.

Those ideas got to become a business. That then was accepted into a prominent accelerator locally. I was added to some positions as an entrepreneurial advisor to two major universities.

I owe Seth a lot. Sometimes, sadly, I’d get bored of his metered and dulcet tone. But when times are tough and I need inspiration or to have the know how for perspiration this has been a great source. Listen to this if you are looking for a how.

The topics are wide ranging but with creativity and thoughtful delivery you can apply those to anything in life. Think deeply about what is said, take what you believe into consideration, and go make a ruckus.

Thank you to his team and to Seth

Thoughtful

I would be more inclined to download and listen if an actual description was added. I used to listen to every episode until they became political. Now I jealously guard my listening time and would appreciate a description of the episode.
