by | Nov 25, 2018 | Digital Marketing

Podcasts. Changing the lives of people who can’t and/or won’t sit still.

Here is our round-up of top podcasts episodes we’ve listened to this month, covering business, start-ups, science, social entrepreneurialism and all-round inspiration from incredible people.




1. Heroine with Esther Perel on Masculinity, Power & Relationships at Work

In this episode, psychotherapist Esther Perel shares how to bring the relational intelligence from our romantic lives (concepts like trust, empathy, vulnerability, etc) into our most difficult, stressful work relationships and creative collaborations, especially in the context of patriarchy and the #MeToo movement.

The conversation explores how relationship dynamics and hierarchical structures are changing and will be messy until we’ve moved through this period of uncertainty.

2. How I Built This with Guy Raz – WeWork: Miguel McKelvey

Miguel McKelvey is the co-founder of WeWork. In this episode, he talks about the journey from a simple office share idea in Brooklyn back in 2007, to a $16 billion valuation a decade later.

What’s so great about this story is that a big brand like WeWork started with a few small first steps. And that’s all starting a business is, when you really break it down. This episode reminds you that anything is possible when there’s appetite for what you offer, and you just keep going.

3. The TED Interview: David Deutsch

If you’ve felt like the world (or certainly, humanity) is beyond hope lately, this podcast episode will inject some fresh optimism back.

The conversation explores David‘s theory that the potential reach of knowledge is infinite. They explore how knowledge first developed, why it sets us apart and what all of these heady concepts really mean for our present and future.

Thank you, Chris Anderson, for this 59 minutes of wonder. And for all the other episodes so far – equally worth a listen!

4. Ctrl Alt Delete with Emma Gannon – Scott Harrison & Joshua Coombes on How To Do Good

In this episode, Emma interviews Scott Harrison, Founder of Charity:Water and Joshua Coombes, Founder of #DoSomethingForNothing.

Both Scott and Joshua have created their own opportunities in social entrepreneurialism and come from humble backgrounds. This episode explores how they started, they work they do to bring cultural norms like water and grooming to serve marginalised communities, and how to make social entrepreneurialism sustainable for themselves and their families.

An inspiring listen!

5. How To Fail with Elizabeth Day: Otegha Uwagba

Author of Little Black Book and podcaster, Otegha Uwagba talks about her failure to get the first job she wanted, how she dealt with sexism at work and living with depression.

This episode is a great reminder of what goes on behind the surface for all of us, both as people and in business, and that we can all achieve great things in spite of (and more often, because of) the setbacks we experience.
