We all have different reasons for taking on hours of commuting to work every day. Usually I listen to some kind och podcast. If I like an episode particular well, I save it es favorite. A list for the big days. Today I skimmed though one and a half years of favorite episodes, covering a range of topics and languages. This reflects not only time of my life but the themes and things I enjoy hearing more about.
Annual Review conversations
At times I when I get bored about fuzzy HR and business podcasts I like listening to Annual Review Conversations. This podcast discusses research from different fields and summarises results. When I get bored by vague results which are not close enough to my daily work, I switch to the fuzzy HR and business podcasts as well.

- The week ahead: Billionaires and generals (04-08-2017; 17:42min): The first time ever I heard someone speaking High Valyrian – a fictional language specifically created for the series „Games of Thrones“ (no, I do not watch it). This is definitely an episode for the sociolinguists among you.
- What can economists learn from literature? (27:07:2017; 12:04min): After reading Kahnemann, I wanted to learn more about the field of behavioral economics. Morton Schapiro talks about the importance of understanding a culture for example by literature to implement effective policies in a way that made me want to read his book ‚Cents and Sensibility‘.
- Babage: Taxi for Travis (21-06-2017; 15:58min): Working in manufacturing, talking about how digitalisation will affect jobs and tasks in general became a bit tiresome. Roy Bahat sparked my interest of digging deeper into that by explaining the complexity of AI replacing jobs.
- The Economist asks: What’s the next great leap for education? (20:45
- Babbage: the automation game (18-01-2017; 23:41): Similar to Taxi for Travis, this episode explores how robots will have an impact on the workforce and if a computer chip is (or will be) comparable to a human brain.
