Curation of 6 podcasts to challenge your mindset at work

Given the choice between taking online courses or listening to experienced professionals, I definitely go with the second choice. This is an excellent way to be inspired and get creativy & energy to try out new things in your day-to-day job. By listening to podcasts, you have the opportunity to listen to top leaders in their field. Opportunity you may not have in your everyday life. Podcast hosts often share the name of the next guest on Twitter so it's also a great opportunity to ask questions and open up discussions & debates. The experience is more static than Clubhouse, but you can open the discussion at any time.

Here's a curation of podcasts I highly recommend; especially if for career path growth and learning about startups, product, business & tech.

Lenny's Podcast

Probably my favorite podcast! Published by Lenny Rachitsky, there is a new episode each week. You will learn tons of POV & actionable advices from world-class leaders.

The recent episode with Gustav Söderström Co-President & CPTO at Spotify is awesome; especially to get a POV on the current industry shift with AI.

Remember the recent SVB bankruptcy? I heard about it thanks to a tweet from Eric Newcomer. If you want to get Silicon Valley news about startups & VC before it hits the headlines, this is the best place to go with. It's also, in my opinion, the best example of independent journalism on Substack (& a great example of journalism you want to pay for).

I often ask myself how today's companies grew in the first place.

Think Fast, Talk Smart
