Ep. 81 In the Wild with Dr.Samuel West at the Global Innovation Forum, London

December 7, 2023

In this special, ‘In the Wild’ episode , The Occupational Philosophers get out of the studio (well, one of them does) to have a nice, cosy fireside chat in a London pub, with Dr Samuel West, a previous guest on the show – Samuel was in London attending the Global Innovation Forum, and as well as speaking about the topic of failure, he had a travelling ‘Museum of Failure’ pop-up, with some choice exhibits from his vast collection of the products and services which didn’t quite set the world alight…

In this episode, as the beer flows, they chat about:

  • The Global Innovation Forum (GIF) in London and the topics being explored
  • Samuel’s research into ‘play’ and the power of improvisation
  • How people are just too serious these days….and who is the least fun…!
  • Why ideas are nothing without another crucial element…listen in to find out
  • What General Magic can tell us about the nature of creativity and innovation
  • Why the Museum of Failure resonates so much with people
  • What beer they’re drinking….
