Podcasts to keep you up to speed
— 2019 edition —
🎧 Yep, it's worth a listen!
Listening to podcasts has become an important part of my day-to-day commute and education. I’ve got to admit I’ve always loved spoken-word radio. There is a great wealth of high quality, free shows out there on pretty much any topic, no matter how specialist. You just need to find them.
I feel that entrepreneurship is now pushing boundaries of creativity mostly through technology. The role of design in business is now well defined and designers must be native in the business context in which they provide value.
Here, are some of my favourite podcasts:
Business and Start-Ups
Probably one of my all time favourites. Evan Davis’ 30 minute Radio 4 show discusses a range of business topics with three guests from various industries.
Our Devonshire square neighbours and fintech experts 11:FS are leading the way, in that today’s consultancy firms must be equally capable content producers - featured top on iTunes!
In Voice-America’s live show and podcast, Ron Baker and Ed Kless are analysing business in the knowledge economy. A must listen for consultants.
Guy Raz interviews the entrepreneurs behind business success stories.
Quite Academic, but a huge resource on business subjects across the spectrum..
Great resource for tech startup mechanics. A wealth of startup resources on their site too.
Interesting tech world insights by the venture capital firm in Silicon Valley, that backs bold entrepreneurs building the future through technology.
Great show with high profile interviews, explaining how companies deploy design.
Monocle magazine’s showcase of architecture and design.
Useful resources for designers and design businesses.
Fantastic programme by Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Outliers.
Learn the basics of modern economy and beyond in 9 minute lessons.
Another excellent show investigating political stories from a unique perspective.
Informative discussions on self improvement, psychology and social skills.
