    What Happens After Tomorrow? (Taking The Leap)

    What Happens After Tomorrow? (Taking The Leap)

    It's the season finale! We recorded this entire season virtually, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, an election, and a coup. And while we set out to explore a wide array of 'Tomorrows' on this show, more often than not, we found ourselves connecting our guests' stories to the tumult of 'Today'. In this episode, we reflect on the courage it requires to anticipate 'Tomorrow' at all, as we travel back with Matt and Sally to 2001 in our opening sketch, and conclude once more in the near future. Tomorrow hasn't happened yet; it's ours to seize, to shape, and to make better and fairer than today. So, let's take a leap.

    Keeping The Faith In Tomorrow

    Keeping The Faith In Tomorrow

    On the eve of Joe Biden's inauguration, and two weeks after a 'mass delusional event' featured a mob of Trump supporters storming the U.S. Capitol, it's clear that whatever 'Tomorrow' brings, it will be powered by throngs of true believers--but what if the 'Tomorrow' you believe in is a lie? What if faith alone isn't enough? And do faith and truth have to be compatible? In this episode, Matt explores these questions of faith through sketches that look back to the Old Testament and ahead to summer 2021, and in conversation with John Lynn, co-founder and CEO of Cela, to discuss what faith is required to build an innovation ecosystem.

    Innovate Today, Plan For Tomorrow

    Innovate Today, Plan For Tomorrow

    How can big corporations innovate today while planning for tomorrow? After all, given their employers' legacies, rules and processes, corporate innovators are never able to start from scratch. In an episode that takes us from the SAAS rush of the mid-2000's to a post-COVID future, Matt relates the story of a (fictional) corporate innovator, Martha Witherspoon, and sits down to interview another (very real) innovator, Olivia O'Sullivan, Director of Corporate Innovation and Partnerships at Acceleprise.

HeyKQ ,

Engaging musical comedy!

Matt Hooper and his team do a great job of blending narrative storytelling with cool, interesting interviews about innovation and tech - and somehow make these disparate elements all feel like part of one story. A fun romp!
