Oliver Broadbent was attending a summer festival when he had the idea to start a creative project. I was there when he made the decision, he told me about it at once – and it was exciting to be in the presence of somebody making that kind of commitment.
Some time later, Oliver got in touch to say that he had started it – a podcast, called Eiffel Over, to help spread creativity among engineers. (Say the title out loud and you might find a double meaning.)
In this episode, Oliver interviewed me. We shared ideas about how to get creative projects off the ground.
I’m happy to report that other episodes of the podcast include “What engineers can learn from clowns.” You can find out more, and subscribe to Eiffel Over, using the buttons on this embedded player.
