Episode 284 - 'Survivor Guilt' Coping When Your Team is Gone...
We are so excited at TaPod to have one of the brilliant global minds, Dr Margie Warrell back on our podcast! Last time Margie spoke to us about Imposter Syndrome and this time we focus on Survivor Guilt. With all the lay-offs in our industry what about those left behind? The why me questions… We discuss all of this with Margie. Not only that we ask the really tough questions relating to her recent visit the Whitehouse (hobnobbing with Albo & Joe), like… ‘What’s the toilet like?’
It’s a fascinating chat and we are very thankful to Margie for sharing her thoughts with us.
A big shout out to refapp for supporting us this month.

Episode 281 - Overcoming the Mistake of a Lifetime... And How TA Teams can get Involved.
In one of our most raw and revealing episodes ever, TaPod speaks with Stu Holmes Founder of The Green Collar. Fresh off his presentation at ATC2023, Stu has spent time in prison himself for armed robbery and we look at how it affected him both inside and upon his release. Stu spends his days now dedicated to helping people who have been in jail get a second chance… and find a bridge back to employment.
In an environment where many industries just can’t find talent there is a ready-made workforce here to consider.
Stu’s story is compelling and is a lesson in how anyone’s life can go off the rails… it’s what you do next that counts.
Thanks so much to RefApp for your continued support in bringing TaPod to you.

Episode 279 - Nothing Holds Any Value Unless You Make Change... with Dom Price from Atlassian
Once in a while we sit down with someone that completely blows us away and on TaPod this week that’s exactly what happened! We caught up with Dom Price from Atlassian at the HR and L&D Innovation Techfest. Dom is a Work Futurist and TED Speaker and quite simply we could listen to him all day. But in Dom’s own words nothing he says holds any value unless you take action. So bolt in for the next 40 minutes, turn the mirror on yourself, ‘remove stuff’ and make change… Dom makes it easy.
Lauren also admits to being 50% bogan Australian… she was probably being a little conservative.
