The first review
I have been listening to this podcast for a year. I visit their website regularly. As far as a leadership and management podcast, I recommend AMA Edgewise. They discuss very good topics. Many of the recommendations made by the subject matter experts are easy to put in place. Excellent podcast.
Great content...if you can get to it
Have tried now three times to listen to Christensen's interview and keeps looping back. The slider bar doesn't work so have to jump forward 15 seconds at a time to get back to where it looped.
All podcasts labeled 1:01 signals technical issues. Come on AMA, you're not a garage band.
