From all walks of life

Welcome to The Outliers Inn; a podcast where respectful irreverence and self-deprecating humor is the order of the day! It’s a place where we can be a lot less serious about ourselves, what we do, what our businesses do, and the manner in which they do it. The Outliers Inn is always serving up juicy morsels, treats, and tidbits – but you have to bring your own legal beverage of choice.

Whether you are in finance, sales, logistics, production. operations, human resources. facilities management. information technology – whatever your role might be – business people are always taking themselves too seriously – or are taken too seriously by others. 

All that ends here.

We are welcoming, inclusive, and open to all comers and invited guestsWe encourage people from diverse backgrounds and experiences to keep the conversations fresh and rich with wisdom. And we strive to create a warm, casual and safe environment; so come as you are and be who you are.

Some of the banter is fun and refreshing, some of it is rather flat and stale. In any case, it’s always genuine. Whatever you choose, we’ll provide reliably amateur and random input which will occasionally leave the conversation obfuscated and declarified. The show is recorded, not live – and we eagerly await your moment in the glare of the audio spotlight to share what’s on your mind.

Posted on
Topic: It’s all fun and games until… you hit a Nash equilibium. JP and Antlerboy explore the games people (and organisations) play, going from Stratego to politics to framing, re-framing, and how to challenge the rules of the game.

Posted on

Episode 46 – Resolutions for the New Year

Posted on
Topic:  We do another theme-based episode, this time on “New Year’s Resolutions”.  It doesn’t matter whether they are funny or serious ones, but it does matter that your word and resolve is so useless that you can’t keep a promise to yourself.  In that case, you might not even have any resolutions.  But if you do, you will probably find that no one other than…

Episode 34 – Andy Dobson

Posted on
Topic: In this episode, your hosts, AntlerBoy an JP, start by lamenting the software industry and their almost arrogant – sometimes not almost arrogant – disregard for the customer and the user experience.  Not that software companies will ever change, but rather a resignation that we have to endure.  But the episode gets productive, or rather reproductive, with the introduction of Andy Dobson and his story…

Episode 51 – Bangers and Mash

Posted on
Recorded: June 3, 2020 About the podcast Topic: Antlerboy and JP welcome the first-ever, all male and exclusively British guest roster. It’s a veritible sausage fest, except its more like Bangers. Come give a listen as we mash it up (see what I did there?). The episode starts with Antlerboy not being his usual joyful self, some would say “hacked-off”, “fed up”, or just “down…

Episode 38 – Join Antlerboy and JP in their first three-way.

Posted on
Topic: Although fraught with great peril, our intrepid hosts open-up the podcast to call-ins.  What can go wrong?  Well, everything can go wrong.  But in spite of the incredible odds, our first call-in episode went rather well.  So well, in fact, that the call-in format will be our new standard format for the show. In this first call-in episode, we will discuss the challenges faced…
