EP7: What's Next In Age Tech
No one can escape getting older, no matter how much we try, time comes for us all. Demographically, the number of people past retirement age (65 years old) will only increase as more baby boomers get older and advances in medicine lengthen our lives. There is a huge gap to address the unique needs and wants of this generation with technology that is tailor-made for our golden years. Why is that? And what can we do to fix it? Join Phil and Liora as they ask, "what's next in the technology you'll be using at 85".

EP6: What's Next In Influencing Innovation
Everyone knows about entrepreneurship, but this episode is a discussion on entrepreneurship's less sexy cousin - intrapreneurship. Most people who work in established organizations have, at one point, questioned how things are done or have had a new idea on how to do things better. Intrapreneurship is the concept of starting new ideas and innovating from within.  In this episode, Phil and Liora share their own experiences influencing innovation from the bottom up.  Join them as they ask what's next in influencing innovation?

EP5: What's Next In The Products You'll Find Exclusive
Diamonds and fancy cars were the status symbols of the past. Staple consumer goods would symbolize love, adventure, freedom, and exclusivity. But over time pesky Millenials have started valuing experiences more than physical goods. In this episode, Phil and Liora explore the shift from physical goods to experiences, from mass production to personalization, from being sold something to the feeling of discovering it for yourself. Tune in to learn about what's next in the staple status symbol that you'll be buying in the future.

EP4: What's Next In Being Happy in the 21st Century
What makes you happy? A question as old as time itself.

EP3: What's Next In The Social Part of Social Media
Social media has evolved from the wild west early days of MySpace to the politically polarizing spheres of Facebook, from the awkward pubescent MSN Messenger to the influencers of Instagram.  In this episode, Phil and Liora talk about the intent behind connecting people and building virtual communities. They think about the crossroads we are faced with today and the different realities that social media could lead us towards.

EP2: What's Next In Addressing Climate Change With Behaviour Change
Only accountants find taxes exciting (sorry not sorry, accountants). Well, that is until taxes can be used to fight climate change. Canada's "Price on Pollution" was announced to rise to $170/tonne by 2030, just 10 years away. Carbon taxes are many economists' favoured instrument to decarbonize our economies. Why is that and what does a higher carbon tax mean for you?  Join Phil and Liora as they ask what's next in fighting climate change with behaviour?

EP1: What's Next In Introductions
We do this one thing almost daily, "Hello, my name is X and I do Y". We introduce ourselves to new colleagues, clients, strangers, acquaintances, future friends, and maybe lovers. After all, you can't redo a first impression. Why do we so often default to our job titles when there are so many other ways to introduce ourselves?  In this episode, the first-ever, Phil and Liora thought they were recording a 2-minute teaser trailer to get listeners hooked. But instead, they ended up diving deep into introductions, what makes a name and the cultural and historical significance in a name, and the importance of identifying ourselves by our values instead of our titles. Join them as they ask what's next in the future of introducing ourselves?
