9. Akimbo: A Podcast from Seth Godin (2018 – )
‘Akimbo,’ the title of the podcast comes from “an ancient word, from the bend in the river or the bend in an archer’s bow”. In this podcast, the host talks to us about the changes that we need to bring into the world, about the age-old traditions that need to be bent, the preconceptions that we have about how we should behave in society and conform to be what it expects from us. From status roles to placebo, to the difference between what we want and what we need- a myriad of topics is covered in ‘Akimbo’. You can listen to all its episodes here.
