    What It Means To Be An Earthling

    What It Means To Be An Earthling

    Today we have an astronaut on the show. I could probably just stop there, but Nicole Stott, did not stop there. Not only is she an astronaut, she is also an aquanaut, the founder of a non-profit, and as a cherry on top: she is the first person to paint in space. We talk with her about all of that and how going to space changes what it means to be from earth.

    Black Employees Matter

    Welcome to project Rework, where we’re re-think the way we think about work, by uncovering biases and digging into cutting edge research. Today, we talk with Dr. Angelica Leigh Ph.D. about her academic paper titled Black Employees Matter. Her research helps illuminate the at-work realities of people of color, especially during tragic and unjust events like the murder of George Floyd.

Must listen!

Incredibly informative, interesting, and inspiring. Helpful for work - but more importantly life outside of it! Each episode is clearly carefully and thoughtfully crafted.

Need of the hour

Excellent podcasts. I enjoyed listening to each one of them. Very resourceful and the discussions involves unique topics and things that are not well discussed in books, or any seminars. I find these podcasts interesting becoz of the following reasons
1. They are true from the heart.
2. Very courageous in discussing delicate topics.
3. Carry a pattern of explaining the problem and what each one of these experts did to handle such situations.

Found it very interesting and looking forward for more innovative and interesting thoughts to come.
