Akimbo: A Podcast from Seth Godin is helping people disrupt their thinking to become innovators of culture and society in their professional work.
This is not overstating the case.
Through excellent use of stories, metaphors, and evidence, Godin manages to disrupt the way we think about our world, particularly business. He is not one for “hacks” or “shortcuts”, he emphasizes the importance of doing the hard work, but for the right people and for the right reasons. He emphasizes caring about your work, but not letting perfection cause you to hide from your chance to serve other people.
Many of his stories return to similar themes, but they are useful to poke and disrupt you from different angles.
