Changed the way I work

I didn't expect this to be one of my favorite podcasts, but it is. Interesting, authentic, and funny. Dan and George share theories about learning, leadership, personal development, and organizational culture based on their experiences leading a digital product agency, Crema. A mix of discussions and interviews with their team and thought leaders who have influenced them, this podcast has changed the way I work and approach projects, both personally and professionally. It's not just for people in the digital product world -- it appeals to anyone interested in personal development and leadership. Everyone with a job who is tired of things being done "because that's they way we've always done it" will appreciate their forward-thinking insights.
