    Have you ever heard the Gutenberg Press and the Amazon Echo mentioned in the same breath before? In this episode, Bret Kinsella explains how they have more in common than you’d think. The invention of the printing press signalled the end of a purely oral tradition and now, centuries later, voice technology is bringing it back - and also tearing us away from our screens.
    As the founder, CEO and research director of Voicebot.ai, Bret’s considered a global authority and the go-to spokesperson on voice assistants and AI. He’s also the host of the Voicebot Podcast and editor of the Voice Insider newsletter. If you’re a brand, Bret wants to know whether you’re in voice - and if not, why not? He also provides a new perspective on privacy issues and explains how voice assistants might radically change the workplace of the near future.

    What does it mean to be happy at work? Is it enough to keep your customers happy and not worry about your workforce? Absolutely not, says Matt Phelan, and he’s got the data to prove it.
    Matt was previously a farmer, then he co-founded a global data and digital marketing agency, and is now Head of Global Happiness at The Happiness Index, the startup he co-founded. In this episode he makes the argument that keeping your staff’s happiness at the forefront in everything you do will benefit in countless ways - and could even make you more money. He’s passionate about understanding how people experience happiness, and advocates for using data to visualise the connection between employee happiness and customer happiness.

    Christian Schiester believes anyone can change their life. And he would know, having gone from a heavy drinker and 40-a-day smoker being told he wouldn’t live to see 30, to becoming one of the world’s great ultrarunners. Within two years of deciding to make a change he had completed the New York marathon and won his first Austrian half-marathon crown.
     
    In this episode we meet Christian at the Red Bull HQ in Fuschl, Austria, and hear how he’s ended up accomplishing incredible things like completing the Marathon des Sables - a gruelling six-day race across the Sahara Desert - and even winning the hardcore five-day Himalayan Run. He explains how recording his progress is absolutely crucial to keeping him going, and how he had to go to extremes in his running to make sure there was no option to back out and finish halfway.
