  1. Season 1 — Wolf 359

    Episode 1: Succulent Rat-Killing TarOur premiere episode. Officer Doug Eiffel, communications officer on board the U.S.S. Hephaestus Station, is willing to go to any lengths to procrastinate his work. Tasked with a pointless hunt for alien intelligence, Eiffel would much rather spend his time complaining about the station’s malfunctioning autopilot system and making sure his stash of contraband cigarettes doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. But when his instruments start picking up a mysterious radio signal from an unidentified source, Eiffel begins to wonder if someone - or something – could be trying to communicate with the Hephaestus. Plus, explosions, dangerous experiments,  non-destructive hair driers, handy-dandy tips for surviving in outer space, and creative interpretations for the word “coffee.” This episode’s music features "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin. This interpretation of the piece comes courtesy of the Free Music Archive.

Or even in the ability to respond to the disruption coming to one’s industry and company… if it hasn’t already. Sometimes, and in certain industries (such as hospitality and education), it just takes longer to pull off.

    But it’s not like people and companies are dumbly sitting around waiting for disruption to happen. In fact, having read the book on disruption for years — 20 years, to be precise, given the anniversary of The Innovator’s Dilemma this year — many smart business leaders know it could happen, yet fully determine that it’s not going to happen to them… and then, of course, it still happens, observes a16z’s Marc Andreessen. Why? Part of the answer, shares father of disruption theory and Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, is they don’t have a common language, logic, architecture, way to frame the problem. And that’s where other theories and frameworks — like jobs-to-be-done and modularity — come in. A theory, after all, though never perfect can help.

    So in this episode o…
