Seth is one of the most successful and influential business writers of all time, and some of us here at StarTalk are big fans. Akimbo is a podcast about our culture and about how we can change it. About seeing what's happening and choosing to do something. You can subscribe to Akimbo in Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or at Akimbo.me, and right now, you can listen to the first two episodes exclusively on StarTalk.
