1. Alcoholism - As a man in recovery for . years or days . The only cure is abstinence . Lots of people shun the step program because most don’t want to face their own faults or their past . Some alcoholics drink everyday other simply have what we call an allergy to alcohol meaning , “it breaks me out in spots, Vegas , Atlantic City , mustang ranch , Dallas etc “ you get the point , we don’t drink everyday but when we do we pass the buzz stage and go straight to blackout . Now after years of work a program could I drink again, probably for a short time . The ironic thing with the last statement is alcoholism is the only disease that tells you , that you’re not sick , hence me thinking I could drink for a short time and be ok. That is a lie , no way I could drink and be ok. Through only finding the God of the Bible who I see as a power greater than myself was powerful enough to get me through the steps and start to live a contributing productive life . ( this is my experience and doesn’t reflect on everyone else )
2. Perspective Shift - The most valuable thing I receive from this podcast is perspective. Listening to all of the live guests share their experiences is eye opening. Some of the accounts, such as Captain Charlie Plum’s, are borderline unbelievable. If I am ever under the impression that I’m having a “bad day”, I remember what Captain Plum endured. It’s also good to know that actual superheroes exist. When I listened to John Stryker Meyer’s account of jumping out of a helicopter into a jungle canopy in Vietnam, I had to rewind the program to make sure that I heard it correctly. This madman bailed out of a chopper with no rope, to save others. No gun. No rope. He just landed on a tree and made his way down it. He definitely expanded the scope of Airborne. Most families in this country have veterans among them. My great-uncle, Sgt. John “Junior” Jones, was one of the special operations advisors that went down on Tiger Flight on March th . He was on the All Army rifle and pistol team. Junior was one of the most accurate marksman who ever lived. His deer hunting feats of marksmanship, in the mountains of Cache Valley, Utah, were the stuff of legends. Jocko, Echo Charles and their guests provide an invaluable service by sharing the selfless and extraordinary events of real human beings who have proudly served this country. These real-life accounts are now secured for future generations. Outstanding work gentleman. Sam Nelson
3. My go to podcast - I often find with so many options at my finger tips for entertainment I am often frozen with what to watch or listen to. I always come back to Jocko though. I’m not only entertained, but I feel like I’ve always learned and have grown even if just a little bit from listening to this podcast. Listen to this podcast. You won’t regret it.
4. Wish I Knew About This Podcast in ! - Discovered Jocko & Echo’s podcast only weeks ago. Now on episode . It will take me a year to get current(listening at . speed), but it is incredible. I do not want to skip any. This is “must listen to” for teens as well as our awesome, brave military, business owners, leaders,….I can’t think of anyone who should not listen to this. Start listening and “Get After It!”
5. Afghanistan —Episode - Thanks for your podcast and outstanding interviews. A note about your discussion in episode re; our disastrous exit from Afghanistan. Your guest rightly pointed out that the USG negotiated the end to the US presence (known as the Doha agreement) with the Taliban, without involvement of the Afghan government. Listeners not versed in this history should be aware that the Doha agreement was negotiated and signed off on in February by the Trump administration, before the election. Trump went on to announce a September departure date while he remained president, and the withdrawal was advanced by a month to August and executed by the Biden administration. It’s important that we, as a country, confront facts and acknowledge that the blame for this shameful policy disaster rests on both parties, both administrations, each inappropriately trying to win approval of a US public disinclined to continue a presence in Afghanistan. Sadly, many Americans no longer understand the importance of the United States remaining engaged, even in small numbers, in strategic areas of conflict like Afghanistan. In fact, the trend, sadly, is towards isolationism. Eventually we will all pay the price for this naïveté. Keep up the excellent podcast!
6. Reflection and opening new doors - Jocko's pod has fantastic subjects and content that have me reflecting on my past experiences while relating them to present day life. I really enjoy how blunt and simple these lessons are presented because it makes that reflection so easy. Also, thanks to EC for always asking questions.
7. Amazing - Jocko, not sure if you read these but was with RCT st marine division ….been listening to your podcast for past years and just want to thank you man! Amazing interviews and no commercials. I now but my boots and jeans from your company because want to support American brands. I also listen to Mike Drop and Shawn Ryan podcast but your breakdown of books qnd interviewing skills are unmatched. Used to like Rogan but for a more intellectual listen you are the go to! When I run out of podcasts I will go back and listen to old episodes. Not sure where you find the time but just wanted to say thank you!!!! Not only thank you for your service as a SEAL but thanks for continuing your service to this country with your podcast and American industries! God Bless Semper Fi!!!!
8. Episode - I’m often asked why I listen to so many podcast? I’ve often asked that myself. Do I like the noise in the background of my day? Do I like the entrainment value from each podcast? Am I edified by random pieces of information dropped, or from the POVs of the host(s)? Well, those questions were answered in full today with episode (Booker T. Washington). I listen for the episode like this episode. An episode that is not only entertaining, with great back and forth from the host but absolutely epically mind blowing. Which happens more often then not with the Jocko podcast line, there are several to choose from.
9. Civil War Excursions - This is one of the most useful podcast series I’ve ever listened to. I’ve toured Gettysburg and other battlefields, but this goes in to chronological order- how the leaders were thinking, decision-making process, logistics. High impact, thought-provoking. A must listen for any military leader.
10. Moments of Palpable Silence - As I understand it, one of the sins of broadcasting is “dead air” - any period of time where something isn’t being sent to the listener or viewer. Jocko edits none of it out. And some of the most powerful moments on this cast are when he allows the words being spoken or read to hang in the silence. To allow the listener a chance to absorb and contemplate what they just heard. And if you look at his lineup of guests and the gravity of subjects he chooses to address, it’s no wonder that those moments of silence carry so much weight. Thank you for your service, sir, and your continued service in bringing these people and their stories to your listeners.
Netflix vs. HBO. Nike vs. Adidas. Business is war. Sometimes the prize is your wallet or your attention. Sometimes, it’s just the fun of beating the other guy. The outcome of these battles shapes what we buy and how we live. Business Wars gives you the unauthorized, real story of what drives these companies and their leaders, inventors, investors and executives to new heights -- or to ruin. Hosted by David Brown, former anchor of Marketplace. From Wondery, the network behind Dirty John and A...

1. Great but… - Great pod, very interesting…but for the love of God if you’re going to continue putting in the “conversations” that you think people had, please get someone else to voice in addition to the narrator. Listening to his high pitch pretend voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.
2. Love the podcast but - Hi Business Wars Team! I love the podcast and have been loving. Excellent story telling and I always learn something new. I subscribed for Season because I love Disney and cannot wait but I keep getting an error message that says “something went wrong” when I try to access all the other episodes. I just paid for a subscription specifically to not wait and now I cannot access the content. It’s really frustrating and I am asking for someone to look into this? Thanks!
3. Recently updated list Hacking - I really enjoy both this podcast and how i built this, but the two podcasts are ALWAYS at the top of my long library list as being recently updated. For some time that deceived me into thinking there was a new episode. There was not. I understand the motivation behind whatever daily updates you put out in order to keep these podcasts at the top of everyones list and therefore get more listens (or perhaps the updates are completely innocuous), but youre ruining the whole point of the update list. Its quite frustrating. Also, in my case, i actually listen less because i rarely actually click on these podcasts anymore assuming there is not really a new episode.
4. good listening, factual. just a few omissions - i only listen to the series that look interesting and i have some knowledge of or experience with (tesla vs detroit, spacex vs nasa, starbucks vs dunkin donuts, hasbro vs mattell etc). I like the story format and learn some details along the way but noted in the Tesla episode, eberhart and his partner werent solely responsible for the creation of Tesla, the work of Alan Cocconi needs to be noted. He started the tech in EV, which GM stupidly scrapped in the s.
5. Chic Fil A belly flop - I had to laugh out loud at the quote “ Chip-Fil-A belly flops over social issues”. I realize Business wars has a high entertainment appeal but as a reporter on historic stories and events I have the expectations that it will reflect accurate events. If by belly flop they mean a few people got mad and made a little tiny bit of noise that the media capitalized on… okay… kinda maybe. What it should have reported is truth in the fact that Chic-Fil-A had a meteoric rise from an already significant height! They became significantly more profitable and didn’t compromise a company core value. Now I may or may not believe in that stance or the values of that company (or others) but reporting needs to reflect truth. Why the star… not just because of that but because the show needs to consider changing it’s name to Ad Wars! (Good idea for a new show) the slip in Ad like it’s part of the show… and or play so many Ads that you forget what the show was even about.
6. Air Bnb story - I clean vacation rentals for a living. But doing well over years. I find it a palling that the lady wants to scare everybody about Airbnb itself. They should do a story on booking.com and VBRO they have no cares for what happens on either side. Airbnb at least tries to do more. As far as bad guest. I don’t find a lot of them I’ve only ran into a very few where they don’t want to leave or are doing scam-ish things. Leaving it totally trashed. They have been messy more than what they should. But not to where they’ve destroyed the whole place. So I’m really upset that they have somebody on here talking the negative when they should put somebody also want to talk about the positives of Airbnb itself. Regardless of how everybody feels about it
7. awesome stories for everyone to understand!! - I love these podcasts! there are interesting and easy for everyone to understand. I’m a teen and I just LOVE listening to this podcast. I saw so many negative reviews about the convos but I just think it makes it better. I also so many people complain about the voices @nd they aren’t ideal but it doesn’t matter that much. ANYWAY, I LOVE BUSINESS WARS!!!
8. Love the show but what’s with the Boy’s club? - I like the podcast and the deep dives into business that it takes but the worst part is how they have men voicing EVERY character. It’s weird hearing middle aged guys with deep gravely voices portraying women and young adolescent men. It sounds kind of goofy, especially when the person they’re supposed to be sounds NOTHING like that. Just comes off as the studio trying to cut corners. Just hire some young people lol
9. Amazing content but way overproduce - I LOVE the core content and the episode style, but in my opinion it is WAY overproduced and could easily be cut down by % without the repetition from one episode to another, the “suspense building” and the unnecessary music. Ads are fine, but we don’t need a minute foreshadow and recap between each one. I listened to about seasons from start to finish, and absolutely loved it, but can’t bear the over-production.

It is evident he is graced to grow every listener out of their shell of unsurety. No other podcast as inspired my life to level up every area of my life. Thank you and your team for the excellence & diligence in each episode!
2. Positivity Oozes from this podcast - I have been listening to this podcast for a few months now. I am even going back and picking up old episodes. This is the kind of leadership I want in my life. I am a grandmother and i want to show the grandkids that little things matter and how to be an influence on others. I talk with my spouse about the truths I hear here and we compare notes. The examples Craig gives really hit home and his advice is easy to follow. What a gift this guy has.
3. This stuff works! - The principles and lessons in this podcast will make you and those around you better! I will admit to being biased because I work at the church these podcasts are birthed out of, however, I think that is precisely why I can say with all confidence that this podcast provides the tools to make you the best leader you’ve ever been. Everyone I have worked around at Life.Church is committed to applying the stuff you’ll hear here and they are the best leaders I’ve ever worked with. This podcast will make both your influence and your relationships grow. Good luck finding this kind of value in minutes anywhere else on the planet.
4. Advice and wisdom you would pay for but free - I’ve always appreciated the way Craig learns and grows and then shared that experience with us. His perspective is fresh and his approach to coaching is very practical. His wisdom has guided me through a lot of personal questions and circumstances that I’ve encountered. If you want to be a better, more consistent leader with integrity…take a listen.
5. One of the best leadership podcasts - This is hands-down, one of the best leadership podcasts out there right now. Craigs advice is relevant and challenging to leaders on all levels.

This is the podcast I share the most to friends and family because of the practicality and the truths he points out through his experience and research. High quality and high impact. Thank you!!
8. Foundational direction and inspiration - Absolutely love this podcast. Pulled it up about months ago on a road trip and have worked on catching up from podcast ever since! I’m not in a people-leading work role but believe me, these principals crossover very nicely into life even as an principal-level engineer, father, husband and servant-leader. This podcast has been an awesome tool to help me be an effective leader and better-rounded person. You won’t be disappointed… :)
9. Great content! - I listen to this podcast as I travel for work. It provides me with the confidence to tackle my work and personal priorities. I love it, thank you! I am also curious if this is something that has been cultivated into a class. Lessons reflecting each episode of your podcast, perhaps a life group?
10. AMAZING! - Pastor Craig Groeschel continues to deliver captivating content based on religious views, yet able to be transferred to any worldview. As a member of the Life.Church family (go Team LC!), I was led to this podcast where Pastor Craig expands on some of his messages from a leadership perspective. Not only does he expand on parts of his weekly church message, but he also incorporates guest episodes and other perspectives that open the mind and heart to new ideas that can be fine tuned for leaders anywhere! I am an aspiring school counselor and I have had so many takeaways that I cannot wait to put to use in my future career. Keep up the awesome work Pastor Craig and team!

1. ChatGPT Episode - Dear Adam, After listening to the ChatGPT episode you hosted with your fellow professor and the ex-Amazon executive, I have to say that you'd come across as a snub. Nobody doubts your intellectual capacity, but your narrow and haphazard evaluation and reaction to the Adam-like prompted ChatGPT response of simple playful questions made me shake my head. I seriously think you are one of those who overestimate themselves, as brilliant as you may well be. Perhaps you are right and you're so brilliant that the system response feels “insulting to a such brilliant mind”. Or perhaps you came across as defensive and agitated for no apparent reason. Your other line about your “brilliant superior editors friends” sounded defensive or over the top. I tell you one thing, anyone, anyone with half a brain, like your guests, can see that what this system is capable of doing is extremely impressive. And by the way, part of those answers do sound like you. If you feel they're cheese, that ought to tell you something about yourself. Also, ChatGPT answers are evidence-based buddy, you simply need to understand what is used to base the answer. In that category alone, the system proved more nimble than you. You just need to take into account the audience and the possible context into what/where the question is asked, and it is easy to understand the answer. Anyhow, just your visceral and defensive reaction left much to be desired. The guests were great though. They obviously get it and didn't sound offended or scared of the program. Maybe, just maybe, you ought to think about that. Introspection I believe it is called.
2. Mix in more of the sciencey episodes? - I’m guessing the original format of this podcast took way more time and effort to produce, but it would be great if we could sometimes get shows in the old format. I found that combination of style, approach and thoughtfully synthesized expertise from a range of perspectives to be so helpful and informative, with so much value and insight packed into just half an hour, I often ended up listening to episodes more than once. As another reviewer said, there are already so many one-on-one interview shows out there…
3. Ear Candy and Application - I’ve been an Adam Grant fan for years, devouring his books and attending conferences where he keynotes. I appreciate that the same thoughtfulness, preparation, and humor that go into those mediums is also applied to his podcast. I now look forward to hard Tuesday morning track workouts!!! I know I’ll learn some interesting things that can be applied to Work/Life and help me make sense of the human condition.
4. Relevant and Witty - I stumbled upon this when looking for something else and ended up listening to nearly every podcast in the series in one weekend. I just couldn’t stop listening. Every single one was so interesting. Even if the titles didn’t capture my imagination, the content certainly did. Adam is funny, interesting, and spot on in his assessment of just about everything.
5. Thought-provoking conversations and applicable strategies - As an executive and team coach, I have been following, experimenting with, and questioning Adam's ideas and books for many years. Like everyone, myself included, he has blind spots and biases, but those pale in comparison with the power of the insights he offers and questions he raises about how we work best, what raises or lowers our motivation, and how our workplaces are evolving or need to evolve. I may not agree with every episode, but always take away a new idea or approach that can help me better understand the landscape and the issues that the people and organizations I coach are facing. Right up there with Hidden Brain and How I Built This as a favorite podcast.
6. Missing the original Work Life - There are so many podcasts where interviews are the main focus. No one person is that interesting to devote a full podcast to in my opinion. The new format loses my interest quickly and has lost the dynamic and original edge that Work Life had. The original merged science with social in a very entertaining way. There were several actionable or thought provoking take aways each episode which I appreciated. I like to learn and grow my perspective - the old Work Life was one of my favorites for that reason. I don’t get a lot of out of : conversations - no matter who is being interviewed. There’s no science there - just one person’s experience/perspective.
7. - I was a bit annoyed by the assumption that everyone with low EI would “not care” about others and thus would be more successful or productive (low sunken cost). I work with and -year-olds who are still identifying their emotions and practicing expressing themselves. My students' lives are more chaotic and thus are less productive when they don't understand or have difficulty perceiving how other people are feeling or perceiving themselves. They don't just not care.
8. minutes of boot licking - Just listened to the great resignation episode and after minutes pay was never mentioned as a reason to leave a job or accept another offer or something to be addressed to retain employees. Instead they talked about how you can make your resignation, should you choose to be one of the percent of people who will regret it later, as smooth and gracious a process as possible for “your organization.” Also a minute add for LinkedIn encouraging people to try to be influencers on the platform, and an interview with a consulting manager who lost her whole team and then decided to fix that by interviewing the one girl who stayed because “you can talk to the angry bitter losers who leave or you can talk to the hardworking people you can count on who stay.”
9. Love this! - How do you not love Adam Grant? When I discovered “Think Again” it neatly articulated observations that I noticed literally everywhere in our society. Adam had me impressed with his ability to communicate those thoughts. Since then, Ive read his books and am now eagerly awaiting more content from Adam. One of the smartest people I’m aware of. (And the gentle ribbing of Malcolm Gladwell is fun too!)
10. Mediocre even though it’s Adam Grant. - I’ve really enjoyed Adam Grant interviews in the past. And I’ll listen to long podcasts. I started by listening to the episode with the author of “The Fault in Our Stars,” and his new book and podcast series. If you can’t grab someone like me in the first minutes, neither of these guys have any business having podcasts. How incredibly boring and a waste of oxygen. Note to Adam Grant: it’s so great hearing you boast about all of the amazingly wealthy and successful people you know - if they’re not interesting I don’t care!
A weekly podcast featuring the leading thinkers in business and management.

1. Let the Golden Rule help - Re: you podcast on rude customer behavior It does seem we live in an angrier society and I appreciate hearing Ms. Porath’s well studied insights. After listening I took a moment to ponder your conversation and was reminded of the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Reminders of this simple but always effective behavior have faded in our society. Perhaps recreating widespread awareness of the Golden Rule is another strategy to remind our over stressed society to be civil at all times. Thanks for a thought provoking podcast. Curt Vapor
2. Just ok - I’ve listened to a few episodes and it’s what I would call a rehash of accepted wisdom. It was interesting listening to the Union episode which to shows the disconnect between an academic and the real world. The academic was very obviously pro union and sadly the interviewer did not take the opportunity to challenge him at all. He also has never actually dealt with a union in real life and how it works in practice. I had to lol when he said unions increase productivity and he was actually serious about it.
3. Too shallow - It is almost ironic that some of the most popular podcasts are very long. But a podcast about successful business is so short. I really do wish that the episodes were much longer and more in depth. Everyone seems to be cut off short. There seems like there is a lot more to talk about on each topic.
4. Gaslighting episode - I appreciate the gaslighting episode but believe there needs to be significant more conversation about it. The reality is when someone stands up to a gaslighter they then become a new target. So the solution of someone else questioning or pushing back against the gaslighter isn’t that viable. The solution most often is that the victim must leave sacrificing career progression and capital to survive. It’s an insidious problem that needs more visibility and should be an integral part of any DEI initiative as those with the least power are the most frequent targets. For anyone who has been on the receiving end - it’s a devastating and destructive experience that challenges your mental health and self worth.
5. Good overall. - I’ve been listening to it a few months now. Overall this show is interesting to listen to and gives really good insights into the business world. My only complaint is during the recent podcast Career Rules at around the min mark the host came off as ignorant by saying “Large, small, US, Asian, Indian, South American.” India isn’t a continent and is considered Asian, there was no need to distinguish/ single it out.
6. Informative and Insightful! - If you’re currently a business owner (or want to be one in the future), this podcast should be part of your weekly content diet. HBR IdeaCast sets the standard for management podcasts, providing actionable advice and insightful conversations in an easy to consume format. Truly a must listen!
7. Our Ideals - Love content the provokes discussions on living up to the ideals of this great nations. One nation under God; mean on code of equality and justice for all our citizens. We need to do better on the issue of racism for I believe our country will be strong for it in the long run. Thanks HBR!
8. Like the content but post-interview production needs improvement - Recently discovered this podcast. Really like the content. I would give it a five star rating if the post interview production could edit out all the annoying fillers such as “You know”, “And”, etc. on both interviewers and interviewees. Even experienced speakers could have many fillers in their conversations. It would be much more enjoyable to listen to edited smooth production. Thanks.
9. Host uses too many filler words - For an HBR backed program, the host uses too many filler words like “sort of” “kind of” and “you know”. This weakens the power of the topics chosen and makes the host seem unsure. I like the topics but the show itself falls short of compelling its audience.
10. Sarah Green Carmichael is my spirit animal! - HBR is my absolute favorite cast. I feel my mind expanding with every new episode and host Sarah is too notch! She guides the discussion so artfully with questions that get right to the heart of “why should I care?” or “make this information work for me”. Thought provoking stuff.

The guests are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and informative. Dave does a great job hosting and brings a true professional approach to each episode. Well worth a listen.
6. An excellent leadership reference - This is one of the staple podcasts that I listen to when I can. I am a nurse leader and a Mom of , and this podcast has helped me tremendously become a better nurse leader and a better Mom. For example, it was a struggle to get my teenagers engaged and have a conversation with them. The series on personality and engagement, as well as communication, helped me deal with my teenagers in a more understanding way, so I was more relatable to them. Career-wise, I credit this show for helping me climb up the ladder because I become more self aware. That said, I capitalize on my strengths, seek feedback and assistance on projects that I was weak on, and become aware of my default settings as an introvert to make the best-informed decision. Thank you, Dr. Dave and Dr. Bonnie for sharing your talent to the world. Thank you also for a great show every week. Please continue to invite experts on the show to share their stories and continue to share your stories as well. May God bless you! Best, Dr. Martin
7. Podcast of Leadership - Without question this is one of the best podcasts I have ever invested myself in listening to daily. I truly believe you can become a better leader, and overall person, by applying the principles discussed. I was referred to this podcast over a year ago after not being successful in interviewing for a new job. Dave’s stories and examples have been very helpful in getting my skillset where it needs to be in preparation for my next career opportunity. At the end of the day only the listener can improve themself through daily application. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to develop their leadership skills. You will not regret it!
8. Best Go To Podcast for Leadership Hints - I've been listening to "Dave" since about episode something and before he had kids. Every morning as I drive to work he and his guest speak into my ear about various elements of leadership. When Bonnie joins him once a month to answer questions it is a double pleasure. Her voice radiates sunshine (most of the time). Last fall my car radio wouldn't broadcast the podcast and I sensed the drought in my own approach to my ability to help shape future leaders. If you haven't been subscribed, do it NOW! It's FREE! but this material is worth paying for, since you may buy several books along the way.

9. Commuting Go-To - This has been my number one listen on my daily commute over the past two years. Makes the traffic a delight and I absolutely get what I need in daily inspiration. I love the weekly email summary and online library. My only sadness comes from having caught up to current episodes. No more bingeing. On the positive side I now anticipate new episodes like a child awaiting Christmas morning... or maybe an adult lusting over practical gifts I didn’t have to buy myself. Either way, Dave and Bonnie bring the joy and all the practical gifts I could desire in this podcast.
10. Treat yourself to the best leadership podcast out there! - Dave has the unique ability to ask the right questions. Not necessarily the usual ones. He taps into the foundational thinking that supports the next level of leadership and introduces you to thought leaders and visionaries that have walked before us and are among us. Dave’ leads with humble curiosity that is both inspiring and insightful. Coaching for Leaders is an invaluable resource for you and your team if you want to be pushed to the next level of success and performance. Thank you Dave and your team for all of the tireless work you do each week to bring such a magnificent resource and connection. Shandy
Harvard Business School professors discuss and debate current events that sit at the crossroads of business and culture. Youngme Moon, Mihir Desai, and Felix Oberholzer-Gee engage in a spirited discussion on a range of topics torn from the headlines — from Facebook, to free trade, to the #MeToo movement. Informed by their unique expertise as professors at one of the world’s leading business schools, their takes are always surprising, unconventional, and insightful.

1. Disappointed - Listening to that episode with Liz Hoffman about Wore Corporate culture backlash was deflating. The point of views expressed are full of fear about holding corporations accountable for doing their part to make the world and work-life better. Forget about corporate responsibility…they ignored this elephant in the room. Going backwards is not the answer. Separating the public sector from the corporate sector is not the answer and impossible. The commentators and Liz Hoffman have too narrow of a view and seem reluctant to think outside the box. I expected to be inspired. But, they regurgitated the same non-working philosophies from years ago. I challenge you to step outside yourself into someone else’s shoes to gain the point of view needed to do better. I want to reclaim my time that I gave up to listen to this “talk”.
2. Two words: ECHO CHAMBER - I appreciate the discussion and willingness to dive in on tough and touchy topics, but wow. A few recent episodes have shown what an echo chamber the podcast and hosts are. Specifically, the episode about new weight loss drugs was incredibly narrow and fear-mongering; presenting a very one-sided view about the dangers of extra weight. Instead of coming across as sincerely caring, they continued present a one-sided view and their tendency for confirmation bias. Not to mention the increase in prevalent of eating disorders and disordered eating, in people of every size. As a person recovering from such things, this episode was massively out of touch, dangerous, and triggering.
3. Great business insight, but I finally had to drop it - I had enjoyed the show and how the hosts would have some excellent insights into business and markets. However, the narrowness of their understanding finally got to me with how they approached other topics. The following examples stood out to me. The inability to understand the chip blockade of China and using the dumb Iranian drones as an example of why we should keep selling advanced chips to China because it wouldn’t affect security concerns made me actually yell “that’s not how that works you idiot” out loud while driving to work. Then a later discussion about demographics and suggested policies showed a complete lack of awareness of the current realities. Affordable child care will not matter if you don’t have enough people of the right age to have children. Also, no talk of how industrialization led to lower birth rates. I mean they even had Ravi on for these discussions. I guess this kind of shortsightedness explains why MBAs have been great for cutting company costs in the short term, but failing to be ready long term. C’mon HBS.
4. highlight of my work week - i’m a big fan of after hours and have been listening for years. the discussions on this podcast tend to walk that fine line of being accessible without sacrificing depth or circumspection. i do have one quibble: the lineup often has a guest spot post-youngme’s departure, and these guests are quite hit or miss. for fewer misses, i would ask that the hosts vary their choice of guest more and lean away from repeat guests that dilute the discussion with more frivolous contributions. (e.g., the discussion of LDIs being met with “ew the bond market!” from the bloomberg opinion columnist...in fact, that guest’s frequent silly takes and clear discomfort with any topics more substantial than elon-mania or lean in make me consciously skip episodes that feature her) anyway, keep up the good work!
5. Love the show, but… - Found the final comments on the most recent episode about OpenAI a little out of touch. The idea that ChatGPT was not born of the biggest players in tech is a bit revisionist. The AI transformer model was originally developed by Google, and Microsoft has made a significant investment in the company. So, it’s not quite the scrappy upstart without access to big resources.
6. Awesome podcast - One of my favorite podcasts and I look forward to listening to it every Wednesday going into work. Topics are all over the board, which is interesting, even touch upon some areas I have very little knowledge about. For the topics I am familiar with, I found myself talking along as if I am joining the conversation! And I love all the picks at the end of the show.
7. Bring back Youngme Moon - Is it just me or has the quality of the discussion declined without YM? This used to be a must listen show for me where YM’s provocative questions or framing could turn any subject on his head. Now the discussion has become very conventional and the subjects uninteresting. Would love to hear about what the team thinks about how Twitter can be revitalized or how the McKinsey culture lead to it marketing dangerous drugs for Purdue pharmaceuticals. Bring YM back and do some real and rigorous analysis.
8. Can more details be added in description? - I love every episode of After Hours. I found it very helpful to have a more detailed description of the recommendations. It’s easier to check out those fantastic recommendations. Previous you can even find links to those books, musics, websites…could you add that feature back? Thanks a lot!
9. Thought provoking! - An exceptional cast who bring the listener to the table. This podcast offers an in depth analysis within the exciting world of business. The topics are thought provoking and keep you thinking long after post credits of the podcast. Thank you so much to Felix, Mihir and Youngme. You inspire us!
10. Pretend business professors - What kind of a business professor would have a fantasy about taking control of a business and then shrinking or eliminating it. Any business that would allow such an idiot control deserves to go under and be replaced with competent competition. Any business professor who thinks business drives demand for long established products instead of demand driving business decisions to produce is not fit to call himself a business professor or to be hired by any credible business school.
Women face gender discrimination throughout our careers. It doesn't have to derail our ambitions — but how do we prepare to deal with it? There's no workplace orientation session about narrowing the wage gap, standing up to interrupting male colleagues, or taking on many other issues we encounter at work. So HBR staffers Amy Bernstein, Amy Gallo, and Emily Caulfield are untangling some of the knottiest problems. They interview experts on gender, tell stories about their own experiences, and gi...

1. A Really Insightful Show - I absolutely love this podcast. From the inspiring interviews to the practical tips shared, every episode is a must-listen. The hosts are all knowledgeable, insightful, and engaging, making the listening experience both enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend Women at Work to anyone looking for a fresh, feminist perspective on life!
2. Great Podcast - I found the entire series very useful, but I wanted to highlight the episode re supporting employees with children with mental health challenges. I’ve gone through this in the past three years with various leadership teams and who is on top makes a world of a difference in my own performance at work and trying to manage making sure I’m bringing my a game to work and to ensuring my children have what they need to thrive.
3. Love this new series - I love this new series with Amy Gallo: Getting Along. The practical tips and reframing are so much more powerful in this “call-in consultation” format. I especially loved the Tormentor episode, as I had a similar work situation to the caller, and found the insights and techniques powerful, insightful, validating (and challenging).
4. Always adding value to the workplace - The hosts of the Women at Work podcast consistently offer a different viewpoint on a multitude of topics. Although I might not personally carry each opinion, I always enjoy the podcast because it shows me how someone else may think about something. Definitely a must listen!
5. Free, relevant, digestible, valuable career advices - Gosh, i love this podcast so much. Its my go to listen for when im in learning mode or having questions to literally anything related to my professional career. U guys are doing such a great job to help women around the world who has access to ur podcast to position themselves better at work. Thank you!
6. Aren’t you supposed to support all women? Even those without kids? - A little late to this podcast but a bit shocked on the episode disparaging workers without kids who have picked up the pieces for working parents. I worked - hours a week because another key member of my team had a child and couldn’t. And the thanks I got was to be laid off, yet he wasn’t, so please respect how hard COVID is for ALL women. Until then, I’ll have to give up on this podcast. So disappointed and shocked by Harvard.
7. Powerful resource - As a white woman, I specifically appreciate the re-release of the series on race & gender in the context of the workplace. I hope that this helps reframe many of our professional and personal relationships with black women and women of color. Overall this podcast seems to be a great resource for strategies to navigate our changing and challenging professional development.
8. Incredibly useful, tastefully curated tools for women at work - I love this show to pieces. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while and can’t get enough. I‘ve even repeated several episodes multiple times and enjoy exploring the extra readings linked in show notes. Across the board, it provides widely applicable but succinct and relatable examples—I’ve been able to implement ideas and add tools to my day-to-day that make work as a woman so much better. Love it!
9. Amazing - I am a cis gender male, who manages a gender diverse team, and this podcast is among my favorites - not just as a manager but as a human in the workforce. The depth of every episode is in line with the best podcasts ever produced, and well beyond the scope of a standard business podcast. One of my favorite aspects is the thoughtful processing after each interview, where the hosts digest the interview and highlight personal takeaways. This podcast is well worth your time.
10. This is exactly what I hoped it would be - I found this podcast when I was looking around for career-oriented shows. I’d subscribed to a few other related podcasts before, but they’re all hit and miss. It’s not to say they’re terrible or useless or anything so drastic, but I can honestly say that sometimes, I skip an episode. That’s not the case with Women at Work. I enjoy this show so much! The topics are engaging and thoughtful, and the hosts do a wonderful job of really digging in to the nuances of what it’s actually like to be a woman in the workplace. Thank you for your research and efforts. I am truly a fan, and I would recommend Women at Work to any woman, whether she’s working in an office, at home, or is a stay-at-home mom. It’s nice to feel like someone else has your back, and sometimes, a mentoring career woman with more experience than you is really helpful. I’d also recommend this podcast to men, because let’s be real: men could use a LOT more insight into the issues women have to deal with in the workplace. A little empathy wouldn’t hurt either! Long story short, Women at Work is exactly what I hoped it would be, and I am very glad to have found the show. Thanks again.

1. Holistically Helpful - I’m learning so much from this podcast in particular and from the Working Genius model in general. The podcast’s round table dialogue is illuminating and I can’t help but take notes. When the conversation highlights my pairing, I feel “found out,” but in a good way—how did they know that my strengths and weaknesses manifest in that way? Genius. Loved the episode on the shadow side for each pairing. It has also been life-giving for me and my husband to talk about how our areas of genius and frustration play out not only in the workplace, but also in our personal relationships. Thank you for the important, groundbreaking work you are doing!
2. Eye Opening - I was recommended the book by two different acquaintances in different settings and thought I'd try the podcast first. I started at the d episode and was astonished. I found myself identifying with many of the sentiments the team described, most notably being frustrated with myself over my lack of enthusiasm in doing administrative tasks and even avoiding asking others who clearly enjoyed such things. I took the assessment and will continue listening to the podcast. Thanks for doing this!
3. Deep Dive - The tools and books that Patrick and his team have put together have been so helpful to me and my business. Humble, Hungry, Smart are of our core values at my office. In addition, everyone takes the work my genius assessment when they are hired. We are still working through implementing the working genius model into our everyday work. This podcast has helped to give me ideas. One thing I would love to is a deep dive on each of the traits to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a DI or an ET etc Thanks Patrick and team!
4. WG helps at work and at HOME - My wife introduced me to WG and I absolutely love it. I have taken many assessments over the years, and I like that this one helps me not only identify who I am but also how I can work with others. And it has also helped at home. I am a “IE” and my wife is a “DG”. My invention is often in overdrive and my enablement is constantly looking for ways to help others! This can be awesome and challenging (overwhelming for others) if not kept in check! I have learned to hold back and not “over invent”. And my wife has learned not to decern every invention that I mention (before WG I thought she was just killing my JOY- now I understand she is just asking questions to understand). She will now wait until I mention the same thing times! Hahaha! This self-awareness has helped us in so many ways! We are using the WG language in everyday conversations at work and at home. I can’t wait to share this with the rest of the family! Thank you!!!
5. Grateful - For the past few years, I have accepted a position to grow a team. As I started, I was able to quickly and joyfully identify problematic areas that was preventing the team from growing before I came on board (Wonder why?!?). Two years into my journey with them, I had grown the team, in partnership with the collaboration of a few key team members, from individuals to individuals through the growth of the business(Galvanize much?!?). I learned my strengths, was vulnerable, positioned myself and my team to always be learning, all before I knew the language of the working genius. My team operated with tactical, strategic, adhoc meetings and I was consistently looking for root cause issues that would degrade trust, conflict confrontation, commitment, accountability, and a result oriented focus. I am so thankful for the working genius, the time you spent in that room, white-boarding, and then presenting it over and over. I can only imagine when Laura walked into that whiteboard session that she knew the journey you all were heading down. I’m grateful for the time you all have spent together. I can only imagine the time and dedication it has taken for each of you in the different phases of this project. I know Pat had the most fun in the ideation stage, and I heard Cody galvanize on as many podcasts as he could before Tracy reigned him in, and I guess I’d never know if Matt just cut it out. In all seriousness, thank you. I’m grateful for the time and energy you have spent. I hope to continue progressing on my journey in organizational and team health. Blessings,
6. Mind Blowing! - I am a junkie when it comes to leadership, self awareness, and team building. The Working Genius is by far the easiest to understand and most profound tool to not only understand and appreciate your own talents and wiring, but also that of others. Additionally it can be applied to all aspects of life! Wow! I am so thankful for this tool and how it’s working not only professionally, but personally also. I now know my husband has the gift of discernment; so he doesn’t hate all my ideas and isn’t trying to crush all my dreams! Ha! Thank you for the Working Genius! I’m currently advocating for my entire team to take it.
7. This is changing my view of work - I found out about Pat’s book The Six Types of Working Genius when he was a guest on Jon Acuff’s All It Takes Is A Goal podcast. I loved the concept so I ordered the book right away and it all just clicked. I have the geniuses of Enablement and Invention. I presented this to my boss and she was eager to learn more as well to help our team. Thank you for this excellent resource.
8. Brought to work team - IT - Hi there, thank you so much for this podcast. Met you from the Buffini podcast. Been excited about other types of personality assessments but this one really hit home for me. I’m an I T with huge disruptive tendencies and brought this to my team lead a G D and she had our whole team take it. We had the whole team do the assessment and it was awesome! Love this podcast because it goes into specific aspects of personalities in a structured way that you can’t always easily find in the book in a single page flip. Thanks for all the value you are building for the community!
9. It’s only been a year??? (And a half) - About a year and a half ago while on a run, I was listening to Catching Foxes when they spent a whole episode discussing Working Genius. I typically don’t find new content on my own, so being offered this insight led me to the actual podcast for WG. Quickly, I memorized it, started sharing it (I’m an GE haha), and went bananas with it! What does that mean? As a campus minister at the time, I applied it with my interns, chaplains, and FOCUS team. Then, I used it to hire new interns the following semester. Shortly thereafter, I communicated who I was in my gifts and frustrations in applying to be a youth minister and moved from Texas to Maryland (bananas, yet?). In my new position, I’ve been able to galvinize the parish not only in youth ministry but in faith formation, in parish announcements, and in mentoring others. As if that’s it, my director of evangelization (a WI) has gone nuts with it and uses it to assign teams for the parish apostolates, in RCIA, and in discipleship. Last but not least, I now have a small startup called D. T. Rosa Management Consultants utilizing Working Genius and Faith to assist other teams and individuals in their organization health. It’s been amazing. Thank you for putting in the time and work for this. It’s helped not only my life but in almost every person I’ve been able to share it with.
10. Alright this Podcast is Awesome - Working Genius has changed how I see my coworkers. I’m a youth pastor, and used to be frustrated that no one else on staff seemed to be geared towards implementation. Then I realized only the church secretary and I have “T” as a genius. It’s also helped in my marriage, since my “I” wife is constantly thinking up new ideas, and I used to frustrate her by going to implementation right away. The podcast does a great job in talking through issues like these, especially the episodes on the “paired” geniuses. Sidenote: Patrick Lencioni seems like the most fun boss in America. Love the podcast

1. At the Table - In Retirement - After a wonderful career which grew through Pat Lencioni’s work, I find there is still a lot of value to me listening to the podcast as I take an active role in a square dance activity. The rules of working in those types of organizations are still needed. Thanks for keeping me relevant!
2. New kid on a new block - I came to know about Pat’s books (look at me referring to him like we know each other… but after listening to so many episodes, I feel like I know Pat and Cody and the whole gang!) through Arrow Leadership. Not long after completing my the Executive Stream, I was given an opportunity in my organization to launch a brand new area of leadership, and form a brand new team. As exciting as that may be (and is), it was also terrifying! Thankfully, at just about the same time, I became aware of this podcast, albeit a couple of years after it launched. I’ve been listening to the episodes like mad, some of them a few times over, sharing them with friends, and trying to absorb all I can. I purchased The Ideal Team Player and used it to bring my team members on board. I am working my way through The Advantage and just purchases the Working Genius assessment for my team (too bad I was two years too late to get the promo code — definite con to being so late to the Table Group party, but also definitely outweighed by so so so many pros). Also, Pat (buddy, pal) I am really thankful for your unashamed approach to talking about why this stuff matters to you. As a Jesus follower myself, I can apply what I’m learning from you and your team in so many contexts — I love it. One request: You may have forgotten your intent to start a series of anti-organizational jargon. I was really looking forward to it! Maybe I need to keep listening and I’ll discover a comeback.
3. A great investment of time! - I’m soon going to be a (head) pastor of a church for the first time. I’ve been binge-listening to Pat, Cody, Tracy, and the whole gang on both the “At the Table” and “The Working Genius” podcast episodes these past three months. Every episode is easy to understand and readily applicable. Bravo!
4. Shockingly ignorant hosts - I cannot believe people can listen to these uninformed hosts. Not only are the business principles based on political/religious opinions, but they don’t even attempt to reference actual data or facts. I would be embarrassed to tell any professional that I’ve listened to this nonsense. Yikes.
5. Vince - Pat used to be someone I looked up to and admired but it turns out he’s just another phony. He preaches about his ‘perfect’ family that is falling apart and hanging on by a thread. Ever wondered why he doesn’t talk about his ‘other’ son Connor on the podcast anymore? Well it’s because he doesn’t talk to him anymore. And his company? Arguably worse, everyone has either been fired for not agreeing with Pat, or has left because he wouldn’t stop throwing tantrums in the office. For someone who claims to be a man of God, he better start repenting. FAST!
6. Fantastic! - I’m a loyal weekly listener and always appreciate the insight, and also love these are usually less than mins, so I can take in the whole thing on my commute. I’ve found myself saying “yes!” out loud almost every episode. By now it feels like I’m hanging out with friends on my drive. The Four Letter Word episode was perhaps my favorite so far. Keep ‘em coming, Table Group!
7. Love it - This podcast really speaks to me. The format is excellent, inspiring concepts and very applicable in a real working environment. I learn something new with every one I listen to. Thank you for helping me make my organization healthier and my work more fulfilling and less miserable.

8. Love this show!! - Pat and Cody have become the “voices in my head!” So much of what I have learned from them has helped not only in my business but also in my personal/family life. They are great to listen to, and I appreciate that their program is not full of advertising. They do this because they truly want to help other people. I’m so grateful I found this podcast!!!
9. So helpful with the right tone - I enjoy listening to At The Table for many reasons. One of them is that so much of what is said is immediately helpful and impactful to daily work and home life. Another is that I don’t hear the group laying on guilt for not managing and leading at a higher level. There seems to be genuine concern for seeing all work environments improve. Thank you Table Group!
10. Newbie cheat! - I’m new to helping run my own business (my husband and I) and I was more than rusty/clueless ! After years of raising our kids I’m back in our business and now loving it! Boy do I need lots of resources and this podcast is one of them. It’s the perfect length, practical and makes it fun to learn about making the climate at work better! Thank you!!!

1. Such a generous and helpful podcast - Muriel brings a helpful, direct, and compassionate style to each conversation with a client. I’m grateful for her generosity in hosting this show and also to the leaders who share their struggles and stories. A wonderful resource for leaders who are seeking immediate, practical steps for what’s next in growing their skills.
2. Not a great podcast - I was intrigued initially with this podcast I think it has a lot of potential. I went back to the beginning episode one and extremely disappointed on episode two when they brought Raism into the picture for no apparent reason, although the issue seem to be a supervisor or boss as they put, it, had nothing to do with race, but they continue to bring it in, even after the person with the issue said the person basically is not racist has a great heart they continue to use the word racist although the coach is not a therapist she should at least recommended the person going to see a therapist, so they understand the difference between racism and just poor management. I can’t say I’m really super surprised considering the other Harvard business review podcast moved to left agenda only instead of staying neutral and trying to support people in general. They are trying to influence only..
3. My Favorite Podcast - Ms. Muriel Wilkins is doing what she was born to do. She is incredibly gifted as a coach. She deftly leads leaders to answer their own burning questions through her savvy execution. As a mid-career manager, I have learned so much from Muriel in every episode; there are golden nuggets that I carry away every time I listen.
4. A must listen for anyone navigating the corporate world - This podcast is a wealth of knowledge. Muriel has such a talent for identifying the real cause of the coaching clients roadblock. She helps the client break down the issue in a way that makes it both much more clear and seem like less of an insurmountable challenge. Her discussions are always positive and offer actionable, relevant advice for the listener as well. My only gripe is the length of the podcast and the frequency. I want more! I wish the episodes were hour and posted every week.
5. A Must Listen for Leaders - I started listening to Coaching Real Leaders with an open mind, but not expecting any real takeaways. I was pleasantly surprised and Muriel's ability to bring the listener in has made me a fan! The questions posed are very relevant to the human and leadership experience. I love that Muriel dives deep to diagnosis the real issue, not just talk about symptoms of an issue. She also makes relevant suggestions but does not take the leader all the way to the answer, they need to actively engage with coming up with their personal future state.
6. Real life examples of professional challenges - I truly cherish this podcast and it’s my most shared pod. The real life examples are relatable and extremely helpful to think through scenarios. I appreciate Muriel’s willingness to share her expertise and experience. She’s very down to earth and offers a welcoming environment for the participants. Love it! For the podcast format, one piece of feedback: it has too many ads of the same sponsor. Since it’s one sponsor, perhaps it can be recreated with gusto and shared at the beginning of the pod. I find the constant ads distracting and find myself skipping through. Having said that, I’ve used the ICF to find my coach, so thank you.
7. Endless Insights! - Muriel's expert coaching is an inspiration - every episode is a mini-masterclass in empathetic and effective leadership. I always learn something about myself, and about how to lead better at work - my team, my peer relationsips, and my relationships with more senior colleagues. Thank you, Muriel!
8. Accelerated learning as a fly on the wall - This podcast is the best coaching podcast, period. Muriel’s experience as an executive coach is available to anyone and everyone if you listen to the podcast. It is packed with so much of content that I listen, two or three times so that I don’t miss anything. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a fly on the wall to observe these conversations. Thanks Muriel and HBR for making this happen!
9. The best coaching podcast out there. - The best coaching podcast out there. Format is crisp and flows smoothly. Muriel is a masterful coach and in each episode she works with clients with different coaching needs. I look forward to each new episode. She makes me a better coach! No matter your level of experience and expertise do yourself a favor and subscribe to Coaching Real Leaders. You won’t be disappointed.
10. Always value packed episodes! - Really enjoyed learning about your coaching approach with the leader who needed sponsorship support. Asking the question “Would you invest in yourself?”, using a metric for her point of comparison, and helping her have confidence in herself. All effective things to help her progress forward. Thanks again for another fantastic episode!
11. Amazing resource for coaches and leaders alike - I’m generally pretty lazy with reviews but this one warrants the attention. It’s a great learning resource on so many different levels. First, it models what coaching should look like. As an aspiring coach, I can’t tell you how helpful it is to observe this. The scenarios are also very relatable and so you can take a lot of the insight that Muriel provides and apply it to your own situation. It is also a chance to get in touch with your humanity and remember that we are not invisible creatures of the business world.

1. MANIFESTO for AGILE SCALING - Being a long time listener, Hoffman’s guests, topics, and depth of discussion is unmatched. He deftly displays the agility and humility behind “Blitzscaling” with all his guests, and their riviting stories behind the curtain. Always a treat and lesson in a listen. Can’t be missed….
2. So much education in one episode! - I agree with Max Rhodes that independent retail are more resilient because they can provide a better personal experience. I love what he is doing with Faire in supporting independent retailers with the resources that big box stores have with data, financing and support with buying inventory.
3. Kathryn finney episode was trash - Everything she’s complaining about, she herself does, but with her own spin on it. Other tips stated that she claims she never saw in a book before are because they’re common sense and there was no need to include this in print… also, latin people dont use the term Latinx
4. Weekly Learning - I’ve recommended this podcast countless times. The guests are diverse and insightful, imparting their lessons learned and advice from an incredible array of situations. The Wait What podcast production group makes the overall experience amazingly entertaining. A smart listen for people who like to hear great stories and apply learnings within their own world.
5. From Inspirational to Political - I used to love this podcast! The earlier episodes provided well-produced podcasts that shared inspirational stories. I walked away with business insights from almost every episode. Now, the podcast has become political grandstanding. While I don’t disagree with what’s being said, it’s no longer a podcast that teaches people how other people scaled their business.
6. Love letter to tech leaders that ignores the harms to society - I used to like the interviews and insights from the guests. But I grew tired of hearing things like “what our customers think is ____” as if we’re all the same. I also hear this hardcore focus on scale and low cost. It was truly disheartening to hear Fidji Simo of instacart talk about expanding advertising on Instacart as a way to lower delivery costs. I’m so sick of ads. SICK of them. But, it’s revealing to hear how these folks think. How do I rate this podcast? The quality is fantastic but I come away feeling so sad as a consumer who is more than a thing that wants stuff fast and cheap.
7. MBA in a podcast - Never seen so much value packed into one podcast. This info is priceless! People pay hundreds of thousands of dollar$ to learn these same principles in an MBA program, but here you’re learning from the best of the best and hearing it first hand! Incredible. Can’t thank you enough Reid and team!!!
8. Chaotic listening - Nice roundup of speakers but overall chaotic to listen to. ) don’t appreciate paying for a subscription and being nevertheless forced to listen to these in between fluffer stories from their sponsor. ) the content is spliced by way too much talk/interpretations and personal opinions from the host. ) the music and
Sound effects further dilute the content. )instead of nice crispy interview questions, you hear a lot of XX questions, this tells me the interviewer is either unprepared or not confident enough to ask more concise questions. Lots of editing time can be saved here. ) would also be nice to sort by entrepreneur/company/industry. I’ve already wasted a lot of time just trying to find a guest I’m interested in then having to Ffwd through above mentioned points is treacherous. Other than that, nice roundup of speakers and hits on some interesting points.
9. Timeless startup MBA in storyform - I’m a year startup junkie. I’ve built, sold, acquired, composted companies. Masters of Scale is a wealth of resources. Unlike most podcasts that are interviews du’jour with founders and thought leaders; Masters of Scale is a collection of business principles that every startup entrepreneur, employee or investor needs to know. Each episode is a timeless piece of wisdom that is illustrated through the interviews. This is a game changing difference from every other podcast. Evergreen. And startup gold. Let’s create!
10. Great insight for entrepreneurs, there’s room for improvement - I just recently started listening to this show. I love the quality of the interviews, they are well structured and they offer a window to the other side of what it takes to create a successful company. What I don’t like is that the music is distracting. It switches between the main interview to some other topic. If the intendent is for the podcast to be educational it would help to focus on the interview, allow it to be more organic and reassess the music and other audio elements to allow the listener to concentrate and process the information.
11. One of the worst podcasts I’ve heard - Reid is a billionaire - why exactly do I have to pay to hear the full interview? In general, after listening to four episodes, there are too many ads and he talks way too much. Dude, let us hear from the guy you’ve booked. There are some nuggets of wisdom, but again, you’ll need to pay to hear more.

1. Primers on businesses - The podcast helps you understand how businesses function, how they make money, where they stand from a competitive perspective, etc. With it basically impossible to avoid business, the podcast basically it’s a source of understanding how the world works that I wish has been democratizing knowledge when I was a kid, although better late than never!
2. Great business podcast - They do a good job of bringing on analysts and others with lots of insight and experience. They usually do big companies and publicly traded if I’m not mistaken. They’re always very interesting and the questions cover just about everything you’d need to know to make an investment. Would recommend to those into business analysis and investing
3. One of the smartest podcast series you will ever listen to - This is a smart show. They really dive into their subject matter. The revelations of business operations techniques theories and practices is a must for any entrepreneur or business person today. It is a must for investors also. If you were thinking about putting your money in any company this show has covered the episode on it is a must listen before you click the button and buy the stock
4. Good but Surface Level - I only listened to the Ali Baba podcast. While good, I was surprised there was no mention of Chinese anti-trust investigations, that Jack Ma was essentially put on house arrest for three months, or regulatory concerns on Ant Financial. There are a lot of interesting questions swirling right now on the company and really we didn’t cover any of those.
5. So far useless... - You broke down the obvious and biggest names in the industry. Shopify was of no use because the interview was unicorns and fairy tales. Zero self thought. You can’t break down a business like that. I think Shopify, Alibaba, Chipotle are great, but that ship has already sailed. How about a challenge like Wabash or Checkpoint software. Anything but the CNBC copycat.
6. This podcast is a game changer - It’s a perfect way for me to collect and evaluate enough details about the featured companies that I can confidently form my own investment theses. Talk about an incredible efficiency unlock in information consumption. Patrick and the team have once again produced some of the highest quality content on the web. Looking forward to what’s next.
Host Morra Aarons-Mele is on a mission to reframe how we think about anxiety and mental health in the workplace. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. We desperately need better models for leadership and a more holistic view of mental health. Our culture tells those of us who suffer from anxiety and depression that we can’t succeed, but we tell a different story — without sugarcoating the tough stuff. We feature stories from people who’ve been there and experts w...

1. Can’t recommend it enough - I’ve been listening to this podcast now for the past few months and didn’t even think to add a review because I assumed everyone must be listening to it. Then, in the last episode, they mentioned leaving a review and it was a no brainer! I have learned so much from these episodes, about how to manage my anxiety with my ambitions, how to better navigate the workplace, and also, that I’m not alone in my anxious/ADHD brain that’s just trying to do the best it can in work and in life. I’ve shared these episodes with friends, hope to one day get to a place where I can share with colleagues without being anxious about it (haha), and am generally grateful to have found this podcast! Thank you for all that you do!
2. Just a bunch of excuses - I am a woman. Listening to women give excuses about how people just treat them a certain way at work because they are a woman is pathetic and overplayed. I was looking for something to give me confidence while advancing in the workforce and this is not it. Horrible horrible horrible
3. So much useful info! - I have listened to TAA since the first episode, and I am continually surprised by how interesting and useful it is. Even the episodes with topics that I’m not sure about have turned out to be wonderful. I highly recommend it, even if you don’t have diagnosed anxiety/depression/etc but just have that Type A personality :)
4. Thank you for such a great resource!!!! - I’ve dealt with anxiety for years, many of which without thinking or acknowledging it for what it was. It’s been a major comfort and fortifying finding this podcast and hearing stories of the many successful people that share similar experiences and anxieties. I’m currently a chef and if possible would love to hear an episode with chef(s) in the industry and stories of how they navigated through the kitchen culture, especially the older regimes.
5. Such an amazing resource! - This podcast was recommended to me by one of my own clients, and I’ve found it to be so helpful, both as a therapist and an overachiever. Each episode finds me nodding along, and I really appreciate the host’s recent highlighting of ADHD. Can’t wait for the next season!
6. Exploitative - Loved the podcast until I heard a guest (Jessi Hempel) say the following about her new hire: “I knew Sarah's anxiety would be her secret weapon, that nothing would get forgotten... I knew she was the best for the job because of it." Yes, that’s a direct quote. Benefitting from someone’s anxiety is gross, and the total lack of self-awareness is truly bizarre – especially from a podcast about mental health!
7. Impactful, empowering, and so important - Wow, what a great show. It’s so important to address mental health in the workplace, especially as we adapt to a rapidly changing world. The Anxious Achiever provides actionable tips for some of these challenges, as well as providing impactful insights from some amazing guests. Really thankful for the work Morra is doing with this show!
8. Simplistic Episode on ADHD - I was really disappointed that the ADHD episode only interviewed men with ADHD. ADHD presents as frequently in women as men but is under diagnosed. The episode also focused on the more well known hyperactive subtype of ADHD and didn’t discuss the inattentive ADHD at all. Inattentive ADHD is more common for women.
9. Life changing - My entire life I viewed my add/anxiety as an impediment to my ability to do well at work or at home. This podcast taught me to shift my perspective away from the things I cannot change but instead ways that I can take advantage of the traits associated with add/anxiety. Play on them as strengths and learn what to look for in my team members to determine where they are at and promote a safe space for them to be vulnerable. Because it’s hard for all us.
10. Much Needed - I’m listening to the recent episode about ADHD. I’m an entrepreneur who’s successfully operated my business for years, I’ve also struggled with ADHD since elementary school. Recently I’ve been struggling with severe anxiety and depression after several personal, traumatic events over the last months. This episode gave me hope & a sense of peace, at least temporarily, regarding my struggle with self-resentment due to the issues ADHD has caused in my life. Thank you so much.
11. Love Moira! - This podcast helped me through a very challenging time with an emotionally abusive boss. About a month or two after listening to this podcast religiously, my boss was fired from my institution, and I left shortly after for a new job which I love. I felt vindicated to say the least. I think that this podcast helped me to see my emotionally sensitivity as a tool and a resource, not a flaw, as I had previously been taught to see it. The dialogue on this show also helped me frame myself as a good team member during the interview for the job I have now. Also I’m obsessed with the theme song! Perfect mix of funky and calming.
Small and mid-sized businesses are the engine of our economy. They’re how people turn their passions into their livelihood – truly the “American Dream”. But owning a business isn’t easy. You need to juggle internal and external forces – interest rates and human interest, supply chain and chain of command. A great leader has a challenging responsibility: look in, while looking out. That’s where Cadence Bank can help. On “In Good Companies” we put together our extensive knowled...

1. Dynamic and Informational Podcast! - Kudos to Cadence Bank for creating a dynamic podcast that benefits everyone from business owners to entrepreneurs down to analysts still trying to learn and develop. Banking is a vast industry and listening to well-versed professionals dive into a variety of topics is a refreshing way to stay in touch and up to date with the industry. Perfect for my morning commute!
2. Episode : It’s the Economy, Stupid:… - Once again, Cadence Bank condenses and de-mystifies key elements of a topic many of us may not monitor as closely because we don’t understand it. Tell Alessio, Treasurer at Cadence Bank, lifts the covers on core aspects of the Economy and how they impact us and our businesses. Giving us a base definition of Capital Markets, Equity Markets, Inflation, Deflation and outlining the roles of The Federal Reserve Board, Congress, and Fund Managers, we are guided to recognize our need to raise our awareness through “critical” reading (credible and unbiased material) on Tax/Fiscal policies, engage as confident, informed long-term investors, and build relationships with our Cadence Bankers and Financial Advisors to be more informed and comfortable with “The Economy”.
3. Banks are so much more - Listening to the In Good Companies podcasts with a wide range of topics that directly affect businesses has been refreshing. The series addresses not just loans, but the overall economy , diversity equity and inclusion (DEI) and fraud through Mergers and Acquisitions. There is so much more to a business and Cadence Bank has done a great job in addressing important topics in an engaging way. Kudos!
4. Current. Informative. Entertaining. - In Good Companies is everything you need in a podcast. The podcast stays up to date with all the latest news that are affecting businesses nation-wide. The host interviews the business leaders of today about the challenges most of us are facing in our own business. These leaders share their thoughts on how we should view these challenges and how to navigate our current challenging times.
5. Needed information for any business - These podcasts are refreshing and straightforward. Hearing seasoned professionals talk clearly about the issues they are seeing on a daily basis in a way that is easy to understand with actual suggestions for businesses to improve their security and cash flow is refreshing! The episode on security is absolutely needed right now and should be listened to by everyone associated with any business.
6. Super Interesting - I love that Cadence interviews companies within their book of business to learn more about best practices to implement. I just listed to the episode on strategies during the COVID- pandemic. I was impressed with the outlook of the guests and proud of the role Cadence played as their bank during that unprecedented time.
7. Helpful info for new and existing business owners - For anyone starting a business, or even an owner who may want to expand or may be struggling, you will learn some helpful information on this podcast. It addresses many from the emotional aspects to the importance of building the business relationships.
8. Informative, practical and entertaining!. - Great practical advice. The shows guests are real people facing the real world of business. It ida informative but lighthearted with a touch of humor thrown in for entertainment. It’s easy to listen to and walk away feeling you learned something or remembered something you shouldn’t have forgotten.

1. icefreeze - For the love of God! Do you people at the WSJ believe in diversity at all? I read the old host was leaving, I was hoping a new younger person of color who can tell a different story would replace her. To my surprise (full sarcasm) just another white woman talking about a continued one sided narrative. She literally sounds like the last host! Stop talking about remote work, HR and corporate jargon! There’s another world out there in the world of work that can be discussed! Starting to think WSJ stands for the “White” Street journal.
2. KILL THE THEME SONG. KILL IT WITH FIRE. - I ordinarily don’t review podcasts, let alone just submit reviews for podcasts I don’t listen to. I listened to one episode, and it’s probably too left leaning for me. Fine, you have the right to be left leaning or whatnot without my wrath. But I listen to three other WSJ podcasts, and they advertise As We Work. A lot. And there’s nothing quite as annoying as that ear-piercing, nonsensical clapping sound entering my brain as I’m trying to keep an -wheeler on the road in high winds. Besides that, what do tin drums and brain-pounding clapping have to do with white collar work? KILL THE THEME SONG. KILL IT WITH FIRE.
3. Not Worth Your Time - WSJ subscribers look for brevity and reality. This podcast is neither. It might make a corporate HR Manager happy, but not someone who is responsible for the bottom line. In this time of employee shortages and an emphasis on diversity, why would a company pay differently for the same work? Unfortunately, this podcast falls back on the same tired bromides.
4. Sounds like an NPR show not a WSJ one - I was rather disappointed with this show. I listened to the first episodes to give it a chance. The show is totally one sided, never even bothers to show more than one side or perspective on a topic. One thing that puts WSJ aside from the NTY or NPR or other mainstream media is that it actually bring more than one perspective to their shows and articles. In Wall Street jargon, they present both the bullish and bearish perspective. This show does NOT do that at all.
5. Disappointed - Disappointed in the recent episode by the false narrative that women are somehow paid way less than men for no reason (than presumably discrimination). The host seems uninformed regarding this topic and just repeats mainstream propaganda. Even far left Vox.com has a fairer and more informed take on this topic on YT. I expected better from WSJ.
