It is hard to believe that 5 months has gone by and I haven’t written anything in this blog throughout 2018! For the past 9 months while driving to and from work so I had a chance to listen to many interesting product-related podcasts which I want to share with you.
Product to Product
is podcast from Toronto-based Roadmunk. I am impressed with their choice of guests, quality of the discussion and their current theme which for season 2 is the human-side of product. Favorite episode: How to think like a Product Manager I have always been a fan of Melissa Perry’s insightful approach on product managers topic but my main takeaway was this:
“… What I want product managers to understand is it’s not a linear process. You may never start in the same place, depending on where you are… stop and think about what they know and what they don’t know. ”
Nir & Far
In this podcast, Nir Eyal mostly reads his previously written articles from a namesake blog. This is a nice deviation from a discussion/interview style of other podcasts. Favorite episode: Unexpected benefits of distraction when it is always portrayed as something to avoid based on this article:
“…Using distractions with an expansive mindset builds strength, while using them with a suppressive one simply shields us from the pain we are avoiding.”
recommended by a colleague to me this low-key podcast is a treasure trove of in depth interview with some high-profile well-known product manager folks. Favorite episode: Interview with Saeed Khan. I’m truly biased because I know him personally and I enjoy his insights. I love his emphasis on management side of product management.
both the blog and the podcast are one of the better known resources within product manager community. The only problem: it is a full-time job to keep up with the content! Favorite episode: Product Trends w/Paul Adams & Emmet Connolly. This episode was done early 2018 but I never get disappointed whenever I get a chance to listen to or read something that Paul Adams said or written.
I have to confess that I have two more podcasts in my queue so this post will be updated with a review on This Is Product Management and the SaaS podcast shortly!
