Grateful for this

I am just starting coursework in IOP (coming from engineering and wanting to learn how I can help my organization do better for its people). I have been getting discouraged by the dehumanizing tone of IOP, and am seeing that it does often seem to be pro-management and not necessarily pro-worker.

I heard the host acknowledge this reality and also say that it shouldn’t be something we aspire to, and I just really appreciate that! I’m going to stick it out a bit longer (and listen to more of this podcast!) to see whether this toolset is what I’m looking for. Thank you!

Finalllyyyy!

I’ve been on the hunt for a good podcast and this one is gold. The podcast has relevant information for today’s students as well as is consistent in uploads which is something I can’t say about other many psychology podcasts.

Good info- background music is very distracting

The information in this podcast is interesting and useful, but it’s almost hard to listen to due to the distracting and loud background music that is added to the interviews. It’s completely unnecessary and just takes away from the information.
