    e24/ Are you living in a parallel reality?

    e24/ Are you living in a parallel reality?

    Join us for our very first episode of the DECADE! We kick-off this year with some juicy and deep topics. Firstly, we look what the new next-generation consoles will have under the hood and why WE LOVE IT. Then we go beyond time and space, and look into parallel realities, dark matter and why we should see life as a series of micro lives instead of one big life. Also, Gerhard makes an exception and drinks a glass of whiskey on a Sunday morning. You do not want to miss this rare and monumental moment.

    As always, relax and tune in for some Futurish times with Pete and Gerhard 3

    e22/ The ONE question that will define your life

    In our latest episode we look into the saturation of subscription services, and what business models we think might dominate the future. We then take a look into our Futurish crystal ball and discuss some potential upcoming trends that not even Google Trends is aware of (just saying: Axe Throwing). Lastly, we discuss the one question that will define the rest of your life.

    e20/ Making Ideas Happen (or Getting Sh*t Done)

    e20/ Making Ideas Happen (or Getting Sh*t Done)

    For our 20th anniversary we decided to talk about how to make ideas happen and get sh*t done. For this we look into examples of companies, and successful creative professionals, who have cracked the balance between the novelty of an idea and execution. Because so often, innovation is overrated and what counts the most is actually great execution. So, what are you waiting for? Make your ideas happen!

    e19/ Growth, Growth, …Growth, or the Insanity of Today’s Market

    In this month’s episode we look into the craziness of the unsustainable and ego-driven growth culture of today’s companies. For this we look into the acquisition of tumblr and the book ‘Let my people go surfing’ as great examples of slow and sustainable growth. This and ramblings about whiskey subscription services and Pornhub as a workplace? What more could you ask for?
