    Werner and Jonathan sat down earlier last week to catch-up and discuss the current state of the world and how it is impacting them. They didn't realize at that point the flood gate they were opening.

    #63 Big rig driver

    What will happen if you did a podcast a day for 366 days? Finding Frequency is a one man's journey to dial back into life to see the extraordinary in the ordinary one day at a time.  This is episode #63, Big rig driver, and a salute to an uncle who died earlier this year. I could not be with my family during this time and created this episode for him.

    Rest in peace sir.

    Werner Puchert is a South African ex-pat living in Warsaw Poland.

    How to (re)design your life

    How to (re)design your life

    Do you feel constantly having too many things that you absolutely have to do? We feel you... So many of us could fill their entire time awake only with tasks, whether they are professional, personal, or from hobbies. The paradox of that condition is that it gets in the way of actually achieving any of those tasks. Not only because of analysis-paralysis but also because it leads us to spend a considerable amount of time balancing our focus between them all. And unfortunately, we end up disappointing ourselves by comparing what we did versus what we wanted to do. It is to talk about this subject that Werner and Jonathan joined forces this week.

    How to read without forgetting key concepts

    How to read without forgetting key concepts

    What is not to like about reading? What other media can engulf you in the wilderness of Alaska or the mind of a world leader at a critical moment of history, all from any place you would find fit for it. However, at a time when it's never been easier to have access to written content, it's also particularly difficult to commit to long-form reading due to distractions and the lack of habits. The Internet has predisposed to fast-food reading, making long-form more difficult to digest or even ingest.

    How are you doing?

    How are you doing?

    The world has been upside-down for some months now as COVID-19 is transfigurating whole communities and creating a dreadful sense of fear in our collective psyche. So, in that context, what could happen in the mind of two solo-entrepreneurs at the dawn of the most important sanitary crisis of the past century?

    Hey there, how are you doing? It's the question that Werner and Jonathan ask each other after a few were both were amending their own lives and businesses. This is what this episode is about, an episode about love and goals, about work and friends.

Very creative and inspirational

I loved Marina’s episode! Her stories were very inspirational. It is great to see someone being the pioneer in a field that no one really knows about. Future of businesses is about being more connected and more kind and service design is really the way to get there. Such a great podcast. Thank you

Another perspective on the world of Design and Product

This podcast aims to be a way for designers and product people to share their outlook on their craft. The twist resides in the fact that a lot of the interviewees are coming from countries and backgrounds we are less used to. A great way to broaden your horizon.
