The Insights Show (AKA METAVELCRO)

50 minutes

In this week's episode of The Freenoter, Tamsen and Tom look at how we make ideas stick as speakers--does every talk need a "big idea?" We also examine the work of Real Hero of Speaking Brene Brown, and how her approach to making ideas stick has given her two of the biggest TED talks of all time. And we will make this podcast stick with a classic cocktail from the golden age of newspapers, The Hearst.
