We’ve moved the mailing list over to Substack for convenience and to reach more readers. What does this mean for you? Nothing, really. Everything remains the same, we just switched where the emails live. You’ll also see the newsletter changing in layout and design as I try and figure out the best way to display podcasts for you seamlessly.

This city is facing much needed reform 🌇 | onePodcast Weekly #3

Wednesday (5/1/19)

Hey San Francisco, what do you need?

Listen to an episode of Recode Decode with Kara Swisher as she speaks with San Francisco mayor London Breed. London Breed is wrapping up her first term as major of SF and has big thoughts and initiatives that could potentially decrease homelessness, provide support to folks who are suffering from addiction and improve the housing crisis. Overall, we really get to hear about the crisis in SF and how people turn a blind eye and hope the "bad" things disappear when the support from citizens is needed to create positive change and reform.

Biggest takeaway: London is working on a program called 'Opportunities for All' and she breaks down the structure of what it's all about and the impact it will have on younger kids in SF. The program will provide paid internships for young adults at no cost to the workplace providing the internship. Opportunities for All will handle the funding and hopefully expose kids to varying roles in the tech industry. This effort is a big step towards investing in young folks who may become part of the SF workforce in the near and long term.

About the podcast: One of tech's most prominent journalists, Kara Swisher is known for her insightful reporting and straight-shooting style. Listen in as she hosts hard-hitting interviews about the week in tech with influential business

Red, purple, blue, oh my! 🎨 | onePodcast Weekly #2

Wednesday (3/24/19)

What does a splash of yellow mean to you?

Listen to an episode on the history of colors! Wait, colors? Yes, you heard right. 99% Invisible recently released an episode all about how colors have moved throughout history. In the episode the guest, Kassia St. Claire dives deep into the following colors: red, green, purple and a few more. Colors in psychology all influence our minds in different ways and today a number of marketers and designers incorporate different colors to elicit emotions and connections within the consumer products they are building.

Next time you click on a "Submit" button or "Pay now" button take a step back and think about the colors used on the page or on the button itself and think about the certain emotions you may be experiencing. Do they influence you to buy now? Do they make you doubt your purchase?

Biggest takeaway: Red is the color with the most data and testing that in turn gives us measurable impact in understanding how we react emotionally or physically when we see the color red. An interesting data point - soccer teams that use the color red during matches have done statistically better than teams that did not incorporate red into their match. Kinda crazy, yeah?

About the podcast: Design is everywhere in our lives, perhaps most importantly in the places where we've just stopped noticing. 99% Invisible is a weekly exploration of the process and power of design and architecture

Are you doing enough? 💬 | onePodcast Weekly #1

What does it mean to do "the enough thing"?

Listen to the one of our favorite episodes on The Knowledge Project Podcast hosted by Shane Parish where he interviews Jason Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Basecamp. Shane and Jason touch on how what it means to  do "the enough thing".

Biggest takeaway: As people, we are so focused on outcome and output, right? With everything. With work we put in a ton of work hoping for something in the end. But we should also be thinking about how we feel as we go through our motions every day. What made us happy, sad, content and really hold on to those moments.

About the podcast: The Knowledge Project Podcast is one of the top podcasts in the world. The aim of the show is to create a world-class multidisciplinary education by exploring the ideas, lessons, and methods that help us truly master the best of what other people have already figured out.
