I’m extremely visual. My neurodivergent brain doesn’t store much of what I only hear about; I must see it. But this year, while driving back and forth between Germany and Slovenia, I found a few podcasts that opened up my brain to new ideas. Even if the knowledge was only temporary, I appreciated that these podcasts gave me enough to think about and to learn continuously.
Advice show for workplace dilemmas
I love HBR in general, so it is no surprise that I was excited to listen to their podcast when I discovered it. Dan McGinn and Alison Beard take a few questions per session and group them by themes.

Radical candor has been one of the values my last workplace had, and when it was recommended to me on Linkedin sometime later, I jumped on it.

The podcast is hosted by Amy Sandler, spans over 5 seasons, and has almost 50h of content. Happy listening!
