Wish I had found this years ago
Wonderful podcast about work management/politics issues. You don’t need to be a manager to gleam insights from it.
Enjoyable and informative podcast
As a loyal listener, the subscription episode on 7/21 is one of my new favorites next to the Shackleton Expedition and the Radical Candor episode. Great job HBR!
Great podcast . It’s like having professional development at your finger tips.
Love content the provokes discussions on living up to the ideals of this great nations. One nation under God; mean on code of equality and justice for all our citizens. We need to do better on the issue of racism for I believe our country will be strong for it in the long run. Thanks HBR!
Brilliant content and guests
Such amazing content and guests. Having worked in higher education for 30 years, the information they share is incredibly valuable and insightful.

Like the content but post-interview production needs improvement
Recently discovered this podcast. Really like the content. I would give it a five star rating if the post interview production could edit out all the annoying fillers such as “You know”, “And”, etc. on both interviewers and interviewees. Even experienced speakers could have many fillers in their conversations. It would be much more enjoyable to listen to edited smooth production. Thanks.
Love the Punchy format
Short interviews with burst. Would love to see a recap in the podcast and hear a learning points takeaway.
HBR Ideacast - my favorite podcast to pick up biz knowledge
HBR Ideacast has become my daily routine! Always get a lot of insights from the episodes! Constantly update my biz knowledge! Thanks to all the hosts and guests!
AYG-HBR Ideacast Super Fan
Always Something to Learn and Inspiring
HBR’s podcast never disappoints. I always learn something new and often save the episodes so that I can transcribe and write down the key portions. Keep up the fantastic work!
Host uses too many filler words
For an HBR backed program, the host uses too many filler words like “sort of” “kind of” and “you know”. This weakens the power of the topics chosen and makes the host seem unsure. I like the topics but the show itself falls short of compelling its audience.
San Diego Sunshine
Not much hard analysis, data, or insight is offered. More emotionally charged, opinion banter. Disappointed after listening to 15+ episodes. Unsubscribing now.
“Why Are We Still Promoting Incompetent Men?”
Why was this podcast was removed?!
Inspirational for Salesmen
HBR continues to be the leader for business, sales, and negotiation!
Harvard Policy towards Fraternities and Sororoties
I plan on cancelling my subscription to Harvard Business review because of their new policy regarding same sex sororities and fraternities.
Broad, but extremely relevant topics
I’m on the business side working in the tech sector. I find these podcasts extremely insightful and thought provoking. I’ve recommended this series to other members of my team.
Thank you SGC
Dear Sara Green Carmichael, I am thankful for all of yourself and your candid sense of curiosity within the HBR ideacast. Life is indeed big and amazing beyond Harvard. Come join all the transition jumpers before you. We appreciate your last show tremendously. Great work!
Great Podcast But...
This is a great podcast. I love listen to it even while taking a shower. However I hate the music at the beginning. It’s hard to hear when others are talking.
Loved women at work episode
Hope to see you do more podcasts focused on women & career!
Sarah Green Carmichael is my spirit animal!
HBR is my absolute favorite cast. I feel my mind expanding with every new episode and host Sarah is too notch! She guides the discussion so artfully with questions that get right to the heart of “why should I care?” or “make this information work for me”. Thought provoking stuff.
This podcast is perfect for anyone looking to make it as a business owner, marketer, or entrepreneur. 10/10 would recommend.
The background music is so unbearable
The background music makes me so anxious. Not sure if I am the only one who really hate the background music but it is really annoying.
Ugh, why Bill Clinton? So rapey
How can you seriously have Bill Clinton on your show and say you care about women having a fair chance at work? How dare you forget the lives this man ruined and his gross abuses of power. Even if you set aside the rape allegations, this is entirely inappropriate.
HBR Podcast is a must-listen
Harvard Business Review is a podcast that I listen to consistently and highly recommend. Their pieces are relevant, timely, often have interviews with influential leaders, and are well produced with minimal commercial interruptions. They are also about the right length for a commute.
Carl from chicago
Nonsense and busnobabble
Pretty terrible imo. At least the Slack episode I just listened to. It seriously sounded like they must be getting kickbacks for every awkward use of the phrase “the social tools”. They say it like my grandma says “the pot”. The content is almost absolute nonsense. I’ll not be listening again.
Always appreciate this podcast. Thank you, HBR!
This is my all time favorite podcast
Sarah Green Carmichael is a brilliant interviewer. The interviews are low key and relaxing but always satisfying. She digs into exactly what you want to know and asks the hard and probing questions. She is extremely knowledgeable about issues of gender diversity (and other kinds of diversity) in business management. This makes for very interesting interviews. Recommend this.
Reader not on Wall Street
Super interesting and Deep
This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
Nice, on-point, insightful, fun where needed, and inspiring podcast.
My Inspiration Podcast
I do podcasting and it's about Business. IDEACAST it's very inspirational to me.
Podcast and Business
Excellent information, very well done.
Love every episode!
I've been listening for years. Always fascinating and so well researched!
Great topics but unbearable delivery
The topics are great. Unfortunately, they've put an amateur in the host seat. This is HBR. I would expect them to hire someone with polished delivery. This woman sounds very young and Vally Girl-ish. It grates on my nerves. Voice, intonation, and inflection aside (all of which are poor), she's clearly reading a script. There's nothing natural-sounding about this host. Just amateur all the way. She's obviously smart, but maybe more suited to print. I'm unsubscribing.

Great podcast... great business lessons... great host!!! I learn much with each and every episode.
My go-to podcast
I have learned so much from both the hosts and the guests. The topics are relevant and the discussion is always valuable. I love the shorter segments. This show makes me look really good at work, and I recommend literally every single episode to someone. If this was high school, I'd probably be voted "Most likely to respond to situations with: 'There's a great HBR ideacast episode about that!'"
I loved the Lean Agile episode . . .
I absolutely love this podcast! The topics are always really interesting and Sarah is an amazing host. It takes a deep dive into the subject matter and leaves me with helpful insight and a better understanding of what's been discussed. I'm always glad I took the time to listen to this podcast. I highly recommend it!
Great insights and ideas for leaders
Excellent podcast. I appreciate the wide range of topics, as well as host Sarah Green Carmichael's smart but down-to-earth approach.
I enjoy listening to the HBR Ideacast each week. The topics are relevant to managers practicing in the real world and bring new ideas for me each time I listen. Sarah Green Carmichael is a great interviewer and asks great questions of the guests. Highly recommended!
I skip the ones I'm not interested in but often enjoy these focused, well-time podcasts. Great name you can depend on.
I've always enjoyed listening to this podcast however I was hoping for some intellectual insight from a historical contact regarding this presidential election. Unfortunately this was a partisan hack job against Trump. Certainly have come to expect more from HBR.
About 50% of the episodes are incredibly insightful and applicable. The other half are not as interesting to me but it's worth listening to all of them for those that are good.
Excellence in moderation
In two wonderful ways: the format gives substantive introduction to many topics in 15 minutes; and Sarah Green Carmichael is one of the best podcast moderators I've heard, she's always well-prepared, insightful ands asks probing, thoughtful questions.
I alway learn something new
They really pack a lot of practical information in a short period. It's easy to listen to. Sara Greene is an outstanding interviewer.
Good but sometimes boring
Love the magazine but the podcast doesn't measure up.
What's happening in business and management
This continues to be the place, as it has been for years since the beginning of podcasting I think, for well-produced thoughtful interviews about the latest ideas and trends in business. Sarah Green Carmichael does her research, asks good questions, and graciously curiously pushes back and presses for clarification or elaboration at all the right moments. What a gift this is to be able to keep up a bit with what is happening in management and business through the HBR IdeaCast. The overview of the HBR issues are also quite good. Understandably, people will probably listen first be drawn to the episodes about books and topics that they are interested in, but almost all of them end up being stimulating in some way. Thanks for the good work.
Loved it for years
Grateful this podcast is continuing to deliver wonderful content.
Always informative, interesting and great topics covered. Really enjoy every episode.
Love the exposure to topics covered by HBR
