Favorite podcast on creativity!

The podcast provides great content bridging the framework of design thinking from IDEO and real business applications from entrepreneurs and innovators from all over the world. It has changed my way of thinking around business building. It’s so much rewarding to learn about creativity and value adding for communities and society, meanwhile building a great business out of it. Recommend everyone who’s aspired to create a business to listen!

OK but some of the guests are annoying

Getting tired of some know-it-all guests talking pedantically in a slow and measured way as if we’re all five year old idiots. Just talk normally. Thank You.

practical tips for work

On several of these episodes I find myself taking notes and learning things to try out at work.

Also like how they often answer questions about how to advance new ideas/change things up.
