Lean Blog Interviews — 394: Lean Communicators Talk About Their Podcasts and More

Nine short discussions with other podcasters


Today’s episode, #394, is a little different. I have nine different guests today… not all at once, but sequentially in today’s episode.

Many people have started podcasts (or similar projects) during the pandemic. I’ve started two (Habitual Excellence and My Favorite Mistake) in addition to this series that’s about to hit its 15th birthday).

Some of my guests today started a podcast during the pandemic… some of them were already going. Most of them are doing podcasts related to Lean (and one is a college buddy who has an HR podcast). We’ve all been part of a formal networking group recently that we call “Lean Communicators.” I have experiences to share with them, but I’m also looking to learn from what they’re learning as they get started — what new ideas or best practices was I missing?

I talk with each guest about why they started their podcast or video series, what they’ve learned, and more.

My guests and their projects are (in order of appearance):
