Absolutely fantastic interview with Adam Grant in which he speaks on Successful Givers, Toxic Takers, and the Life We Spend at Work.
If you are not familiar with his book Give and Take, I suggest you put it on your radar. One of my all-time favorites.
Debbie Milman in conversation with the wonderful Maira Kalman? Dropping everything to listen to this.
Anna and Argyle is a dynamic digital tale that combines the immersive power of modern technology with the timeless simplicity of a storybook.
It is the beautiful story of a girl who wants to find her lost sock. Anna ventures from her family’s laundromat in Brooklyn to the wild world just beyond the rumbling, tumbling machines, discovering that perfect pairs don’t always match.
I love how the founder of LoyalKaspar, Beat Baudenbacher, lets us peek behind the scenes in their short process stories videos, from character building to the typography used. Anna and Argyle is LoyalKaspar’s multi-year side project. Nothing but incredibly impressive.

This. Video. Just. Blew. My. Mind. And here is the behind the scenes.
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation between Krista Tippett and Helen Fisher on Love, Sex and Attachment. In her TED talks that have been viewed by millions of people, and the research she does for Match.com, Helen Fisher wields science as a sobering, if entertaining, lens on what feel like the most meaningful encounters of our lives.
So many gems. So many.
Italian designer Paolo Cappello created this modern music cabinet called ‘Caruso‘. Reminds me of the old TVs from back in the days…
Steve Larosiliere is a dear friend of mine and a person I truly admire: He is the founder and president of STOKED, an award winning development organization for underserved youth that seeks to inspire these teens through action sports.
In this CreativeMornings talk from November 2014 in New York City, Steve speaks about the chances he’s been given in life — about the things that happened to him and the things that happened because of him — and how each one informed his mission to close the opportunity gap and pay it forward in his community.
Have a listen. It’s well worth it.

If you run a company, think a lot about what it means to create a healthy company culture, you will enjoy this episode of This American Life on a car plant called NUMMI in Fremont California that might have saved the U.S. car industry. In 1984, General Motors and Toyota opened NUMMI as a joint venture. Toyota showed GM the secrets of its production system: How it made cars of much higher quality and much lower cost than GM achieved.
The part that really made me listen up is when they talk about how Team Toyota taught the American employees what it means to work as a team and help each other out. Really shows the importance of a healthy company culture where employees stick together and help each other, where your co-workers care about you doing a good job and lift you up, if necessary.
Really inspiring episode. Listen in!
This gentleman sings the same song in 15 different places experimenting with natural revert, early reflections and short delays. Beautiful.
