    Love the Punchy format
    Short interviews with burst. Would love to see a recap in the podcast and hear a learning points takeaway.

    Always Something to Learn and Inspiring
    HBR’s podcast never disappoints. I always learn something new and often save the episodes so that I can transcribe and write down the key portions. Keep up the fantastic work!

    Host uses too many filler words
    For an HBR backed program, the host uses too many filler words like “sort of” “kind of” and “you know”. This weakens the power of the topics chosen and makes the host seem unsure. I like the topics but the show itself falls short of compelling its audience.
  • danndaze
    Opinionated banter
    Not much hard analysis, data, or insight is offered. More emotionally charged, opinion banter. Disappointed after listening to 15+ episodes. Unsubscribing now.

    “Why Are We Still Promoting Incompetent Men?”
    Why was this podcast was removed?!

    Harvard Policy towards Fraternities and Sororoties
    I plan on cancelling my subscription to Harvard Business review because of their new policy regarding same sex sororities and fraternities.
  • Andrew Wiese
    Broad, but extremely relevant topics
    I’m on the business side working in the tech sector. I find these podcasts extremely insightful and thought provoking. I’ve recommended this series to other members of my team.
  • LancasterToLacLeman
    Thank you SGC
    Dear Sara Green Carmichael, I am thankful for all of yourself and your candid sense of curiosity within the HBR ideacast. Life is indeed big and amazing beyond Harvard. Come join all the transition jumpers before you. We appreciate your last show tremendously. Great work!

    Great Podcast But...
    This is a great podcast. I love listen to it even while taking a shower. However I hate the music at the beginning. It’s hard to hear when others are talking.
  • Joy Chudacoff
    Loved women at work episode
    Hope to see you do more podcasts focused on women & career!
  • JLBond
    Sarah Green Carmichael is my spirit animal!
    HBR is my absolute favorite cast. I feel my mind expanding with every new episode and host Sarah is too notch! She guides the discussion so artfully with questions that get right to the heart of “why should I care?” or “make this information work for me”. Thought provoking stuff.
  • Autumn Shultz
    Love it!
    This podcast is perfect for anyone looking to make it as a business owner, marketer, or entrepreneur. 10/10 would recommend.

    The background music is so unbearable
    The background music makes me so anxious. Not sure if I am the only one who really hate the background music but it is really annoying.
  • Kanarpski
    Ugh, why Bill Clinton? So rapey
    How can you seriously have Bill Clinton on your show and say you care about women having a fair chance at work? How dare you forget the lives this man ruined and his gross abuses of power. Even if you set aside the rape allegations, this is entirely inappropriate.
  • Carl from chicago
    HBR Podcast is a must-listen
    Harvard Business Review is a podcast that I listen to consistently and highly recommend. Their pieces are relevant, timely, often have interviews with influential leaders, and are well produced with minimal commercial interruptions. They are also about the right length for a commute.
  • TheNagus
    Nonsense and busnobabble
    Pretty terrible imo. At least the Slack episode I just listened to. It seriously sounded like they must be getting kickbacks for every awkward use of the phrase “the social tools”. They say it like my grandma says “the pot”. The content is almost absolute nonsense. I’ll not be listening again.
  • Yoloike
    Love this
    Always appreciate this podcast. Thank you, HBR!
  • Reader not on Wall Street
    This is my all time favorite podcast
    Sarah Green Carmichael is a brilliant interviewer. The interviews are low key and relaxing but always satisfying. She digs into exactly what you want to know and asks the hard and probing questions. She is extremely knowledgeable about issues of gender diversity (and other kinds of diversity) in business management. This makes for very interesting interviews. Recommend this.
  • The1JD
    Super interesting and Deep
    This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
  • ah!han
    Highly Recommended
    Nice, on-point, insightful, fun where needed, and inspiring podcast.

    My Inspiration Podcast
    I do podcasting and it's about Business. IDEACAST it's very inspirational to me.
  • Stacyskis
    Excellent information, very well done.
  • Nikrixkssssss
    Love every episode!
    I've been listening for years. Always fascinating and so well researched!

    Great topics but unbearable delivery
    The topics are great. Unfortunately, they've put an amateur in the host seat. This is HBR. I would expect them to hire someone with polished delivery. This woman sounds very young and Vally Girl-ish. It grates on my nerves. Voice, intonation, and inflection aside (all of which are poor), she's clearly reading a script. There's nothing natural-sounding about this host. Just amateur all the way. She's obviously smart, but maybe more suited to print. I'm unsubscribing.
  • Robebear
    Always Enlightening!!!
    Great podcast... great business lessons... great host!!! I learn much with each and every episode.
  • Melamestiza0701
    My go-to podcast
    I have learned so much from both the hosts and the guests. The topics are relevant and the discussion is always valuable. I love the shorter segments. This show makes me look really good at work, and I recommend literally every single episode to someone. If this was high school, I'd probably be voted "Most likely to respond to situations with: 'There's a great HBR ideacast episode about that!'"
  • Harrikens
    AWESOME ****
    I loved the Lean Agile episode . . .
  • Nvnati
    Fantastic Podcast!
    I absolutely love this podcast! The topics are always really interesting and Sarah is an amazing host. It takes a deep dive into the subject matter and leaves me with helpful insight and a better understanding of what's been discussed. I'm always glad I took the time to listen to this podcast. I highly recommend it!
  • EdG1978
    Great insights and ideas for leaders
    Excellent podcast. I appreciate the wide range of topics, as well as host Sarah Green Carmichael's smart but down-to-earth approach.
  • Tom Hodge
    Great podcast
    I enjoy listening to the HBR Ideacast each week. The topics are relevant to managers practicing in the real world and bring new ideas for me each time I listen. Sarah Green Carmichael is a great interviewer and asks great questions of the guests. Highly recommended!
  • bran230
    Great listen
    I skip the ones I'm not interested in but often enjoy these focused, well-time podcasts. Great name you can depend on.
  • ArmstrongHome
    Ep. 550
    I've always enjoyed listening to this podcast however I was hoping for some intellectual insight from a historical contact regarding this presidential election. Unfortunately this was a partisan hack job against Trump. Certainly have come to expect more from HBR.
  • D. Maren
    About 50% of the episodes are incredibly insightful and applicable. The other half are not as interesting to me but it's worth listening to all of them for those that are good.
  • coffeymd
    Excellence in moderation
    In two wonderful ways: the format gives substantive introduction to many topics in 15 minutes; and Sarah Green Carmichael is one of the best podcast moderators I've heard, she's always well-prepared, insightful ands asks probing, thoughtful questions.
  • armond_m
    I alway learn something new
    They really pack a lot of practical information in a short period. It's easy to listen to. Sara Greene is an outstanding interviewer.
  • NancetotheC
    Good but sometimes boring
    Love the magazine but the podcast doesn't measure up.
  • Andy_Rowell
    What's happening in business and management
    This continues to be the place, as it has been for years since the beginning of podcasting I think, for well-produced thoughtful interviews about the latest ideas and trends in business. Sarah Green Carmichael does her research, asks good questions, and graciously curiously pushes back and presses for clarification or elaboration at all the right moments. What a gift this is to be able to keep up a bit with what is happening in management and business through the HBR IdeaCast. The overview of the HBR issues are also quite good. Understandably, people will probably listen first be drawn to the episodes about books and topics that they are interested in, but almost all of them end up being stimulating in some way. Thanks for the good work.

  • Goranger22
    Great interviews
    Love the exposure to topics covered by HBR
  • pkcurrie
    What a Podcast should be
    Sarah is the highest quality interviewer around. She understands the depth and breadth of all the different topics discussed here. I find 2/3 relevant in a practical way. If you're reading this, you should stop and listen to the podcast. Now. Quit that. Just press play already....
  • Florida residente
    Like it a lot
    I really like these podcasts. The time of each one is perfect, and the topics are great!!!
  • GTown3
    Concise and helpful
    I appreciate the brevity yet the depth of the shows.
  • RannieJ
    Taste of HBR without hefty subscriber fees
    Host of topics to step up your game.
  • Jen SLC
    Quick Access to Great Information
    Love the short episodes on the ideas covered in HBR. It gives me a lot of think about, and I can always find more info later if I need it. Also maybe it's just because I'm a mid-30s female, but I really like the host and think she does a great job.
  • jbriar2000
    Useful information
    The interviews and coverage of HBR articles provides useful information on research being completed in business management. The breadth of perspectives presented are very informative.
  • Karen May Jones
    To the point
    Love the topics you're covering. They are going to be very helpful while I plan out my new website. Thanks for the podcasts!
