Omni Talk’s faithful readers have been asking for it, so here it is. I am excited to announce Omni Talk’s first podcasts!
Yes, you heard that right! You can now listen to Omni Talk’s Fast Five while you work out at the gym, on your drives to and from work, or my personal favorite, as you put your earbuds in and tell your boss, “Hey, sorry, I can’t help you right now. I have to listen to this super cerebral webinar on the future of retail right now. Maybe later?”
Late Friday night, two friends of mine came over after the kids went to bed, and we recorded our first episodes into the wee hours of Saturday morning. Carter Jensen brought his equipment (don’t worry, his wife was ok with me using it), my business partner, Anne Mezzenga, brought the coffee (and other beverages), and I brought the baby monitor (Mrs. Omni Talk was on a much deserved girls weekend). We hope you enjoy our first efforts.
If you want a quick five-minute rundown of the week’s news, you can check out my solo “Fast Five” podcast below:
Or, if you want a more in depth review of the week’s topics (or both), you can also check out our “After the Five” podcast, where Anne, Carter, and I take a closer, detailed look at the week’s headlines:
The choice is yours.
Be careful out there,
P.S. While “After the Five” was inspired by one of the greatest shows in television history, The Bachelor, please temper your expectations — we have no plans to have any ex-girlfriends or baby daddy’s on the show. Unless of course Marc Lore and Doug McMillon break up, then it is game on!
P.P.S. In all seriousness, a huge thank you to Anne and Carter for their help, and a huge thank you to all of you for continuing to inspire us to reach new heights.
