Customer Reviews

Varies in quality

I got an email announcing this podcast and was very excited. Then I listened to a few. Most are just articles read out loud. This treatment of a topic makes for a boring podcast. But a couple like (Investing the Gulf's Oil Profits Windfall) are what I expected to hear, thoughtful discussions. I hope that they publish more of these, rather than just read articles.

Suggestion for Improvement

I would suggest listening to a couple of HBR IdeaCasts as a model. HBR has adopted a moderated format whereby the moderator interviews the author on the content of the article. In cases where the author is not available, they have a standin (usually a HBS professor) who "interprets" the article.

Academic Style is Appropriate to the Content

I have read the other reviews complaining that these are merely read pieces, lacking in interaction or more entertaining formats. I have enjoyed listening to them, precisely because they are factual, unemotional, and delivered with real life examples to easily illustrate the points contained in each podcast. I think they in fact are the perfect tonic to today's ADD-driven and greed-filled world of in the moment decision-making that does not have the ability to include multiple perspectives. There is very little evidence of learning from others' experience taking place - a distinctly different action than following the herd. If you are interested in such things as built to last, quality, and sustainability, then I think you would find significant value in these podcasts. I believe they are just as relevant to our business and political leaders as they are to startups and small business owners.
