  2. Special Sauce: René Redzepi on Apprenticeships, El Bulli, and Being a Better Leader [2/2]

    In this week’s Special Sauce interview with René Redzepi, he describes his journey from being a 15-year-old novice cook to culinary visionary, which started when he was an apprentice at Pierre André, a Michelin-starred, classic French restaurant in Copenhagen. "I spent four years with [chef-owner Philippe Houdet], and it was an incredible time," Redzepi says. "I mean, I basically went from being a child to being an adult like overnight. Just like that you’re working 85 hour weeks and with responsibilities." Those four years were incredibly important to Redzepi. "I still think of him so much, when I think back to these moments that make you, and that give you the courage and the power to believe in yourself further on." But what really blew Redzepi’s mind as a young cook was a meal at El Bulli. "I was with a friend and Ferran [Adria] was there, we ate and it was just mind blowing to me at the time," he recalls. "So different to anything. I thought everything was French food and suddenly you see yourself in Spain and it’s like, I cannot believe what’s going on here. What is this? It broke everything for me. So I went up to Ferran immediately after the meal and said, "I want to work here. Can I come and work here?" And, after writing Adria a letter, he did. Following a stint at…

  3. The French Connection | Reply All | 22:16

    "My name is Jean Marc Manach, when I was a student, to pay my bills, I used to tell people I was a beautiful girl on Minitel." In the early 1980s, France Télécom-Orange launched the Minitel online service which allowed the French to search a national phone directory, buy train tickets, make restaurant reservations, read newspapers and chat with each other, years before these services became available on the internet as we know it. This story dives into the "personal" side of Minitel.

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the epic struggle between England and France for the French throne which lasted for over a century. It covers everything from Edward III’s victory at Crécy and the Black Prince’s triumph at Poitiers all the way to the French victory in 1453. All of the major battles, such as Sluys, Agincourt and Orléans are covered as well as the political intrigues in both kingdoms.

    Recommended Books:

    Michael Prestwich - The Hundred Years’ War - Probably the best narrative overview of the war.

    Johnathan Sumption’s series of the Hundred Years’ War is phenomenal and insanely deep but it will cost you an arm for all of the books. Genuinely don’t bother unless you’re an undergrad or very interested.

    Ten Minute English and British History is a series of short, ten minute animated narrative documentaries that are designed as revision refreshers or simple introductions to a topic. Please note that these are not meant to be comprehensive and there’s a lot of stuff I couldn’t fit into the episodes that I would have liked to. Thank you for watching, though, it’s always appreciated.

  6. #9 — Lisa Stone, Co-founder and Former CEO of Blogher. She Knew Women Would Influence the Web

    In 2005, Lisa Stone consummated her transition from journalism to digital entrepreneurship with the co-founding of BlogHer. This business began as a conference for female bloggers, the first of which attracted 305 women bloggers and netted $60,000 in profit.

    BlogHer extended its awareness that social-media-activated women were an invaluable audience into an influencer network that reached 100 million women through a scalable technology company to monetize blogs and social communications.

    Lisa and her team sold BlogHer in 2014 to She Knows Media, and in this intimate conversation, Lisa talks about the import of women in media and her transition into chapter next.

    She reports that In the late 90s, people were saying women would never go online. She knew that was crazy. She now says "there is no media today without social media. There is only one customer you need to reach, and it’s the woman who is leading conversations in social media. She will not only bring female friends, she will also bring the men."

    Lisa is an authentic leader who build a company that traded on authenticity as a core value.

    This is a great window into Lisa’s journey.
