What It Is
The folks behind the Harvard Business Review collect thoughts and theories from people in various industries.
The show comes out weekly and each episode runs twenty minutes approximately. It features short segments on various subjects from various people related to various business industries. The iTunes archive houses the 300 most recent episodes; for the entire archive going all the way back to 2006, check out the show’s official website.
What About It
I like that the show has some elements of production. Especially when shows feature episodes this short, they tend to be pretty bare bones, but even with just twenty minutes or so, the show actually goes for a few segments, clipping interviews down to pertinent sound bites and such. The show has a lot of energy, but this method also means that the show feels rather shallow. You never feel like the show really has the time to get into anything; I suppose it doesn’t. But it sort of feels like the Cliff Notes version of a much better, longer show.
