We Read It So You Don’t Have To: Innovators Dilemma

hwms.coverart

Life is busy.

There’s no time to read. 

Or view YouTube videos.  

Or even listen to podcasts. 

So Maddie, the 8 year old entrepreneur an Bix, the Master Scrum Master, give you a thorough overview of Clayton Christensen’s masterwork, the Innovators Dilemma.  

It is perhaps the most influential business book of our age.  It was the centerpiece of the late Dr. Christensen’s career.  It’s important cultural icon.

And, of course, Bix hasn’t read it.  

And Maddie has read it too well. 

Cast:

  • Zoe Anastassiou – Maddie, the 8 Year Old Entrepreneur
  • Ron Bianchi – Bix the Master Scrum Master
  • Skippy – Himself

It’s called “Brexit” but It’s not About Brexit (Series I)

hwms.coverart There was a reason for this title.  We talked about it in the writers room. But that reason is gone.  It was just another step towards Audio Drama. You want to be innovative do something new and think that you can just change directions on a dime. But that’s the problem. Novelty is not innovation. Without a structure to support it, a new idea won’t advance your goals. So we turn the cast loose to wrestle with this problem. Some success. Some problems. A couple of hosts disagreeing about a new idea. A little CEO who may be realizing that contract is not enough. [16430]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Holiday Special – Songs of Comfort and Joy

errant.coverart Every community should have tradition for the December Holidays.  Our tradition comes the predecessor to this drama, the podcast “Errant Hashtag.”  This is an adaptation the essay “Songs of Comfort and Joy.” Two notes, while this is dramatic, it is not technically drama.  The event actually occurred at the Computing Center of Southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas.  It was documented in the Dallas newspapers.  Second, the Producer’s father is in the center of the back row.
