    A Tribute to a Better Life

    A Tribute to a Better Life

    You can see a cover band version of The Beatles, but why isn't there a tribute version of theme parks? Or a tribute version of Formula 1, or art, or restaurants? After we pitch a tribute of everything, Alex plays havoc with the spacetime continuum to make it easier to work with Australia.

    Thank you so much Rhianne for sending us your business idea to make leather easier to wear!  'If you have a business problem, ad or idea you'd like us to discuss you can contact us using our Google Form: https://forms.gle/oNTu6FJ5gV91isRNA

    Elon Musk and the Atomic Priesthood

    Elon Musk and the Atomic Priesthood

    Elon has made it clear: no idea is bad enough to not be considered included in a future update to Twitter. We are more than happy to help speed up its death spiral by throwing more ideas into the mix. Tackling another type of melt-down, we discuss the Long-term nuclear waste warning message problem: how can you convince people to leave nuclear waste alone, forever.

    How to get a day off work

    How to get a day off work

    We are back with another episode recorded in Brewdog Waterloo's podcast recording studio! The restaurant Dishoom lets loyal customers roll dice to give you free food - can other companies apply this gambling concept to their own business? Then, Alex teaches everyone what a skinner box is, and how the future of everything will be based on them. On top of all this, this episode is unique: we have finally found a real-world business idea as outside-brained as this show. Let us introduce you to Outhorse Your Email!
