    Seth Partnow On Metrics & Getting Better Every Day

    Seth Partnow On Metrics & Getting Better Every Day

    "You don't want to be asked a performance metric question, you want to be asked a performance question about those things that are actually your job"



    Seth Partnow covers the NBA and basketball analytics for The Athletic. He resides in Milwaukee and was formerly the Director of Basketball Research for the Milwaukee Bucks. He joins us to discuss how metrics can be leveraged to help us get better every day, why selecting the right metrics requires diversity, and the critical need for coaching to turn metrics into actual improvement. This was a unique and fantastic conversation filled with brilliant analogies to the analytics revolution in sports.

    Weekend Special: Explore The Space In Conversation

    "Trust the science, look after the people next to you, & work hard"



    In this special edition of Explore The Space, I sit down for a conversation with my dear friend and former babysitter Susie Rolander. Susie is a literacy specialist with a special skill set around on-line learning, and she is currently pursuing her doctorate in Leadership for Change. She is also a co-founder of Startover, which is a meeting place for experts and people seeking to make positive changes. I was fortunate to be Susie's guest on one of Startover's live shows. This was really fun.

Excellent and candid discussion on the first rollout of the vaccine. Critical information that gave me great food for thought while I discuss and help prepare my elderly mother for her vaccine in months to come. Very appreciated!

Refreshing and invigorating

High level candid discussions with leaders in the medical space, which is vast and incredibly diverse. Dr. Shapiro is an amazing host, and his conversations with his guests could be easily featured on NPR or any major platform. They're that great! Congratulations on 5 years! As a current resident, I'm excited to keep tuning in as you continue to celebrate the diversity of "the space".
