Comments from some of those who selected Apple Podcasts as one of their top tools

“Actually my number 1 It’s so embedded in my life I forgot it was a tool. I listen while I’m walking the dog and doing the housework. I hear research and ideas from all subject areas and use these to springboard ideas for work and home” Cat Malcom, Design Practice Manager, Australia, 2020

“Rich content, flexible to access and use “on the go” – driving, walking, grocery shopping. Allows one to keep learning and staying current in complex time without the “passive” consumption model (sitting and watching video or TV).” Catherine Shinners, Advisor, Consultant, USA, 2020

“The variety of content and guests available is great.” David Verhaag, Company founder, USA, 2020

“Listening to thinkers on topics of interest.” Elizabeth Robinson, CEO, Australia, 2020

“it’s just my chosen app to listen to podcasts.” Conrado Schlochauer, Consultant/Speaker/Researcher, Brazil, 2020
