Podcast Of The Week: Diana Chapman On Trusting Your Instincts

I’ve mentioned Diana Chapman before in these notes here, here, and here. The book she co-authored, The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, had a major impact on me last year.

Podcast Of The Week: When Guilt Is Good And When It Isn’t

I wrote about it yesterday, but I really think it’s this important. Check out Dr. Laurie Santos’ interview with Valorie Burton, “When guilt is good… and when it’s not” on The Happiness Lab podcast.  They look at the drivers of guilt, how to break it apart, and what the upsides and downsides can look like.  … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: When Guilt Is Good And When It Isn’t

Podcast Of The Week: This Week In Doom

There’s only one episode up as of when I’m writing this, but Grant Williams and Doomberg (two excellent finance follows on Twitter and via their newsletters) are teaming up for something very special.

He was famous for being an intense, sometimes menacing, punk rock … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: You’re Never Going To Beat The Master (Rollins On Iggy)

Podcast Of The Week: Habits And Vulnerability (Part 2)

Brené Brown is back with the second half of her James Clear interview and I’m feeling glad they split this up so I had some extra time to digest each portion.  They talk about why habits need to be small.  How habits apply in organizational settings (and why managers wanting to change their direct reports’ … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Habits And Vulnerability (Part 2)

Podcast Of The Week: The Legend Of Paul’s Boutique

Paul’s Boutique, if you don’t know, is the Beastie Boys’ second album and arguably the Sgt. Pepper’s of hip-hop. It’s what happens when you push all the envelopes, all the buttons on the studio gear, (and maybe put down the bottle and pick up the bong, allegedly).  The stories on its making are as epic … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: The Legend Of Paul’s Boutique
