Podcast ads where the presenter has to say they like or use a product are equal parts boring and irritating. They show the presenter lacks integrity and honesty.

Enjoy this one, felt identify with many of your views, lots to learn from it. I considered myself an Intrapeneur, I found it surprising that you welcome this kind of employee. Generally speaking managers feel uncomfortable with us, they see us as competition. I love working with small businesses and the challenges that comes with developing them, but I haven't found that boss that feels comfortable to a partnership level, were honesty and creativity flows naturally. They seem to live in the fear of losing their business if they let another mind to tag in. Regarding of microbiome, I'm following you close on this one, I have many digestive issues that doctors haven't being able to identify.
