Good podcast? Give it some love!
Tummelvision is a weekly live podcast that explores the human side of technology - people before data. A Tummler is a Yiddish word used to describe a person who catalyzes others to action. Tummlers were traditionally hired at Jewish weddings and in the Borscht belt to warm up the crowd and get the party started.

Each week Heather, Deb and Kevin engage with well-known guests from the arts, business, and technology who all share a unique focus on the importance of bringing our more human selves with us both online and offline. Guests are all experts in the art and science of engaging and collaborating a networked world. Topics range from "does google get social" to what is the role of empathy and emotion in business and how do we genuinely connect in a connected world.
