Reading Frederic Laloux's Reinventing Organisations has taken longer than I expected thanks to the other reading I have to do for my day job. Thank goodness for these audio and video files!

I was super lucky to have been able to catch Chvrches 'live' last week and part of the reason why is Riot !n Magenta. This local band opened for Chvrches and they are good. (Not being biased here.) They are really really good. I found them on Soundcloud and the tracks are excellent, but the studio versions … Continue reading Listening Pitstop
You know I love podcasts. I used to be a voracious consumer of them, listening to episode after episode during the drive to work, back from work, to the gym, back from the gym...
