Inspiration can hide in the strangest of places - and in some obvious and brilliant places too. At Mischief HQ we can nottt get enough of these podcasts, some for straight up facilitation inspiration and some just for good fun (but if you keep your eyes and ears open Mischief Maker, you’ll find 💎gems💎 in all of them).
Here we go:
👨👩👧👧 Together Apart - Priya Parker: The godmother of Facilitation Priya (author of best selling book ‘The Art of Gathering’) paves the way in this podcast, taking you through her thinking and process around translating offline experience into online gatherings.
🧠 Ted Radio Hour - NPR: You’ll literally come away after every episode feeling noticeably smarter. They bring together a collection of TedTalks around a theme, interviewing the speakers. 3 of our faves are: Thinking Slow, Power of Play and Where ideas come from.

✨ Curiosity Daily: Tiny little nuggets of knowledge and intrigue, they’re super short and leave you feeling wiser. The mental equivalent of doing 20 star jumps when you don’t have time to go to the gym

👶 Grownups read things they wrote as kids Sometimes so funny, you’ll have to stop riding your bike because you’re laughing too hard. An excellent example of how such a simple format can bring endless delight. A masterclass in vulnerability and a great one for an insight into all corners of human.
