About This List

Podcast Brunch Club is like book club, but for podcasts. We have 70+ in-person chapters across 6 continents. Every month, we put together a thematic podcast playlist. The April 2020 theme is "Conversation." Join us: https://podcastbrunchclub.com/how-it-works/
  1. Welcome to what is possibly the most tense and uncomfortable summer program in America! The Boston-based program aims to teach the next generation the real truth about race, and may provide some ideas for the rest of us about the right way to confront someone to their face. | To learn more about this episode, subscribe to our newsletter.

  2. They flew fighter jets together in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then they co-founded a successful business. Now, for the first time in their adult lives, they’re ready to part ways professionally, but they don’t know what their lives would look like without their "brother of choice." Side-by-side on Esther's couch, they talk about letting go of the fierce loyalty bonds forged in the cockpit.
  3. Chris Voss is an American businessman, author, and professor. Voss is a former FBI hostage negotiator, the CEO of The Black Swan Group Ltd, and co-author of the book, Never Split the Difference. Chris sits down with the Armchair Expert to discuss his time as a hostage negotiator, what drove him to law enforcement and the benefits of de-escalation. Dax wonders about the evolution of terrorism and Chris talks us through the hostage negotiation of Jill Carroll. He talks about the power of saying no, the concept of bending reality and the ways in which we can win negotiations in our daily lives.
  4. We could all get better at conversing with our fellow humans. It’s just so easy these days to hide behind our screens, and when we’re finally face to face with actual people, we’re often talking too much and not listening enough. How can we make the most of those one-on-one, face-to-face, in-real-life moments? We’ll hear from journalist Celeste Headlee, whose career revolves around talking to people. And Lifehacker’s own Michelle Woo tells us how to talk to kids—because do any of us really know how to do it? And our producer Casey Georgi talks to people on the streets of NYC to find out what irks people most when it comes to bad conversationalists.
  5. What if you could tell your co-workers what you really think of them? At the world’s most successful hedge fund, everyone is rated and ranked constantly – in front of everyone. They’ve figured out how to embrace negative feedback, and they swear it’s essential to their success. Adam shows how you can learn to take criticism well – and get better at dishing it out. This episode is brought to you by Bonobos, Accenture, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Warby Parker. Find the transcript at: go.ted.com/worklifecriticism
  6. Sara and Adela discuss the Conversation listening list, which was curated for the PBC community by the one-and-only Adam Grant! The episodes included on the list were from Invisibilia, How’s Work? With Esther Perel, The Upgrade by Lifehacker, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, and WorkLife with Adam Grant.
