 S1 E05 - Google as a skill — As content gets broader and richer, so does the payoff for research | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2930

Search, scan, compare, consolidate. Rephrase then repeat. Answers to your questions at the reach of your fingertips yet, not all work is done. You must be the judge on quality. In this episode, we discuss the value of finding your own answers by comparing Google results and how it relates to different personality types and applies in different industries.

 S1 E04 - Community feeling — I don't know any of these people | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3592

You might have heard of communities as masses of people with a shared principle. But these can also be made by a few, in the right niche.  In this episode, we discuss what a community is, what it feels to belong or be part of a community for us and how size impacts communication. We will also navigate the many platforms that already serve this purpose: from good ol' forums to Slack, Discord and more.

 S1 E03 - Social Zoom — The standard for socialising in covid isn't social enough | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3448

Friday plans with work! Checks calendar: Zoom Pub Quiz Special Event 2021. Sounds familiar right? Social gatherings have been replaced with casual gaming and video call activities. We don't have beers at the pub, but at the pub event. We don't meet up for coffee but schedule coffee chats.  In this episode, we explore how socialising has become zoom dependant and how it could be better. Casual interactions are not so casual when they are scheduled, but are they engaging? Check your headphones are on and press play.

 S1 E02 - Improving Alexa — AI, but not quite | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3268

If you ever wondered what Alexa, Apple Lightning port, dropshipping, and AI driven shady businesses have in common then you're in the right place! Jokes aside, in this episode we explore the shortcomings of home assistants, focusing mainly on Alexa (just because that's the one we have, no hard feelings) although the conversation ends up taking a few fun turns.
