Fun and insightful podcast about critical business challenge

Really enjoying this podcast. Love the topic of how to collaborate in a modern business setting. The overview of the challenges and potential solutions is critical for companies to understand today. Great guests with interesting stories and really enjoy the chemistry between guest and host. Also, the 30 sec cultural references in the beginning make it a fun mini-guessing game each episode.
