Every now and then Ben Thompson lets an article/podcast out from behind his paywall, and if you’re interested in strategy, you’ll want to take note.* There’s a lot of technical and jargony stuff going on here, but listen (or read) "Cloudflare's Disruption" and focus on this core concept: A small company (Cloudflare) is figuring out … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Strategic Stratechery
It's a 3-hour long audiobook and not a podcast, but it's my newsletter and I'll cry (or post, or write) what I want to. Pema Chodron's Don't Bite The Hook is a lecture she gave on not getting triggered by the frustrating crap in our lives. At first, it feels like it's about addiction, anger, … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Don’t Bite The Hook
Two podcasts I didn't know I needed this week: Michael K Williams' two Fresh Air interviews (already discussed here). Norm Macdonald on WTF in 2011 talking life, comedy, and more life. Enjoy. Heard anything good? Send it my way.
I’m probably breaking some rule by doing this, but read this note from Cal Fussman and listen to this podcast today. It’s worth remembering and reflecting on.

Below is Cal's post available here: For The Curious, Of all the … Continue reading Podcast of the Week: 9/11 (Via Cal Fussman and Michael Wright)

I'm focused on the newer one today ("Stepping Into Your Own Voice With Laura Belgray") but both are … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: I Wanted To Be Laura F’n Belgray
Malcolm Gladwell’s at it again. If you grew up with/raised kids on Disney (and Disney princesses, and the like), you’ll want to pay attention to this one. The Little Mermaid, in the traditional sense, is a queer allegory. In the Disney sense it's an abuse of the understanding of contract law. In a cultural sense … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: The Little Mermaid Was Wrong
Ok, it’s an audiobook, but it’s short enough to only be a few podcasts long at <6 hours. Somebody out there needs this. Either because life and relationships are hard, adulting is confusing, or your vinaigrette recipe needs an update. Nora Ephron’s “Heartburn” is like a coming-of-middle-age story. It’s about dealing with failed or failing … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: “Heartburn” By Nora Ephron
I'll stop stanning Danny Meyer when he stops making me understand things so clearly. Maybe it's reading Impro and thinking of everything in terms of the status seesaw, but even in an interview where he covers a bunch of core-Meyer material, I learn something from him every time. If'n you don't know, Meyer is a … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Danny Meyer On Hospitality And Humanity
