For eight years, the team here on The Mind Tools L&D Podcast (formerly The GoodPractice Podcast) have been chatting work, performance and learning with some of the brightest minds in learning and development.

This week, to celebrate the release of our 400th episode, our friends Phil Willcox from Emotion at Work and Ady Howes from Digital Skills People have pulled together a tribute episode for us.

We discuss:

·       the Mind Tools team’s favourite episodes

·       what we learned from 400 episodes of podcasting

·       what others think of the podcast.

During the discussion, Ross Garner referenced his favourite episode: 279 — Why work is the ideal place to talk about race.

Margaret Greenberg and Gina Greenlee’s book is The Business of Race: How to Create and Sustain an Antiracist Workplace and Why It's Actually Good for Business (published by McGraw-Hill). The coauthors work with organizations to embed racial equity into their business strategy. For more information go to their website and click on the Work with Us tab.

Ross D’s favourite episode was Don Taylor’s regular Global Sentiment Survey appearances.

Nahdia picked: 382 — You don’t have to talk to add value, with Georgie Rudd.

Owen picked: 323 — Making decisions with data and intuition, with Oded Netzer.

Gemma picked: 300 — Celebrating live from London!, with Phil Willcox and Julie Dirksen.
