Stanford University podcasts
Stanford’s podcast library is huge; spanning topics from work-life balance to product development and globalisation, the university is able to grill high-level staff from some of the world’s largest companies on how they make decisions to secure growth.
Several of these conversations are recordings from public lectures and panels held at Stanford, in which an academic will put questions to investors and company chief executive. Over 12 seasons of the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders podcast, for example, listeners can learn about the career histories and everyday challenges of management at the likes of Disney/Pixar, ModCloth, Dropbox, Spotify and Instagram.
