Donald Trump 🤬
Ok you just do one on Donald J Trump!! He’s not even doing anything through the PANDEMIC He does not care about us PS BEST PODCAT :)
I really loved this show when it was Secrets of the Most Productive People. The new change doesn’t interest me, but I would’ve preferred a spin off show called The New Way We Work instead, and go back to the original topics for the original show. If you want a show similar to the pre-Covid format “How to Be Awesome at Your Job” is a good alternative. I’ll probably listen to old episodes now and again, but definitely unsubscribing and probably not tuning into the new episodes.
Better than the FC website, which seems to be leaning more toward politics, and not in a good way.
This podcast seems to stay on the topics of business and productivity instead of the seemingly 40% of Fast Company articles online that are about anti-capitalist Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE). I hope they stop with the politically correct authoritarian BS, because it’s not good for anyone’s business.
Keep Fast Company a business media outlet.
