Now that everyone is spending more time at home, we as a team have noticed that we’ve been consuming a lot more media whether it’s books, movies, TV or podcasts. We asked the GMD team what they have been listening to while working from home. Here are some of our favourites:


Laura Larson

You spend a quarter of your life at work. You should enjoy it! Organizational psychologist Adam Grant takes you inside the minds of some of the world’s most unusual professionals to discover the keys to a better work life.



Robert Huynh

One of my fave podcast series is 99% invisible. Episodes observe interesting topics within art, design and culture. A recent one I enjoyed is called “The Worst Video Game Ever”


Lebon Siu

Wildfire covers the devastating 2017 Eagle Creek Wildfire in Oregon. Not only does it do a great job of retelling the incident with a range of perspectives, from survivors to firefighters. It also succeeds in keeping the listeners informed on how to prevent and manage wildfires in the future.


Liv Doogue

I love Still Processing: two culture writers for The New York Times critiquing TV, film, art, music, the internet and other pop culture related things, often through a queer, feminist and POC lens.



Design Better from Invision is on my top 5. This episode  talks about the challenges and advantages that working from home can bring. It also gives us some good insights tips on how can we keep the company culture strong even virtually. It also includes a free book (link) to be downloaded and discussed among team members.


Tyler Mounteney

Canadaland is one of my favourite podcasts. They take a critical approach to stories in the news and create dialog with journalists and media professionals around challenging issues facing our country and the world. A recent episode looks at Systemic Racism at the CBC.


Bonus Podcast

Our once and future office mates Vancouver is Awesome have a podcast and well it’s kind of awesome. This episode features a celebration of that very Canadian drink the Caesar on its 50th birthday and a performance by electro pop prodigy and office favourite Devours.
