Another Podcast to Share - "I Demand the Cone of Silence!"

Happy 2019 all!

I know I’m dating myself here, but the Cone of Silence from Get Smart is pretty relevant for today’s workplace. It’s even less practical than the shoephone - naturally, it never worked - but the underlying need for a private conversation to discuss sensitive topics is becoming a real challenge with so much pervasive - and invasive - technology around us 24/7.

That’s the teaser for my most recent podcast that my newsletter subscribers receive. As I’ve been explaining with earlier newsletters, I’m keeping that particular content exclusive for subscribers for a few weeks, then it will be shared here to a broader audience.

I was remiss last month in doing that, so blog readers here are getting a double-shot of podcasts. Last week, I posted our podcast from the previous issue - talking about Twilio, including their SIGNAL conference - and I’m pleasantly surprised by how much traffic it’s drawing. Now I’m doing the same for last month’s newsletter, and you can listen by clicking on the embedded link down below.

Even if you’re too young to remember Get Smart , I think you’ll find our discussion of interest, and it goes well beyond the Cone of Silence. If you check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts, along with suggestions for future podcast topics. And, of course, if you find this to be must-have content - and why wouldn’t you? - just sign up for the newsletter so you have it hot off the press. My January issue is going out this week, so there’s a brand new podcast just waiting to be heard!
