Disruption: October 2019 Podcast Playlist

Podcast Brunch Club theme: Disruption

In the last 5-10 years the word “disruption” has achieved a prime level of buzz-wordiness. It’s hard to remember a time when “disruption” was not used on the daily to describe a new tech company destined to become the Uber of this or the Netflix of that. Nevertheless, “disruption” or “disruptive innovation,” which was coined by Clayton Christensen in 1995, is arguably “the most influential business idea of the early 21st century.” Let’s unpack disruption a bit and listen to episodes that feature disruption in both the business and the personal domains.

(This playlist was curated by Ralph Campbell, co-leader of the PBC chapter in South Florida).
