The CoolTimeLife podcast focuses on surviving and thriving in a world of work, technology, and change. Some of the episodes deal with practical things like "how to run better meetings," others look at human things like creativity, critical thinking and stress management, while still others investigate new and exciting trends in work and life, like flipped schooling, AR/VR enhanced workplaces, digital transformation and the future of work.
The episodes are intended to be "evergreen" meaning they can be listened to months or years after their release. They focus on long-term ideas, generally. That's why I list them by category.
You can also check out the podcast series and easily subscribe through Apple iTunes, Stitcher, Google, Spotify, and others or by visiting my podcast host page at Blubrry here. I have also posted transcripts of the podcasts on LinkedIn.
