Rank #9: Hunter Lee Soik | What If We Could Build A Database Of Dreams?

Podcast cover
Read more

Hunter Lee Soik is founder and CEO of Shadow that is building the Wikipedia of dreams. Do the Japanese who sleep the least also dream the least? What does your dream mean? What is the global dream trend for 2014? If you walk 10,000 steps, will you have more positive dreams? If we eat chicken after 9 pm, will we have a certain type of dream? Hunter’s dream is to answer these questions by building the first global resource for dreams.

Hunter doesn’t really believe in limits. Since he was a kid, he's always seen obstacles as opportunities: to make ourselves vulnerable, to learn about each other, to stretch way beyond our boundaries.

Looking at life this way is generally exhilarating. But it can also be exhausting. So a year ago, when his work with the Watch the Throne tour wrapped up and he suddenly had some free time, Hunter did what most of us would do. He slept. And in that sleep, the deepest I had in a very long while, he dreamed of SHADOW.

SHADOW is the world’s first alarm clock that helps people remember and record their dreams. It transcribes your dreams, pulls out the keywords, strips away any data that could identify you, and pushes it to a giant global data cloud—where other SHADOW users can see global dream patterns and find dreamers like them around the world.

Why does he care so much about dreams? Because we sleep for a third of our lives, and we forget 95% of our dreams within five minutes of waking up. But some really pivotal things—laws of physics, technological advancements, classic works of literature—were born of dreams. We’re socialized to think of sleep as inactivity, but certain parts of our brain—the parts that handle things like problem-solving and memory—are most active while we’re sleeping. That’s a huge amount of potential we’re forgetting each morning.

Like astronauts gazing back on Earth for the first time, SHADOW is a way to see the world from a different angle. It’s also a bit of a gamble. SHADOW wants to create a global dream community and assemble the world’s largest dream database.

Hector has learnt to live with his anxiety and, remarkably, now talks very openly and publicly about how this condition feels as a child.

Both Hector & Polly chat to Gav with real honesty and insight into how they learnt to live with the diagnosis, how it effects the family and how Hector has thrived in the 4 years since.

She has been the founder of two of Britain's leading advertising agencies, MCBD & Lucky Generals, both of which she set up, grew and then sold. In the often male-dominated world of advertising, Helen is a true female powerhouse.

DO Podcast with Gav Thompson | Self-Belief & Tom Goodwin

Podcast cover
Read more

The DO Lectures have a new podcast series entitled "DO Podcast with Gav Thompson". 

We have been releasing The DO Lectures in Podcast format recently, but we thought it was time to actually start making some podcasts that were, well, you know, actual podcasts.

We have asked our old friend, Gav Thompson, to host these. Gav worked with David back in the 90's, has been a friend of the DO for ages and gave his own DO lecture in 2012.

The first season is all about The Person behind The Story and The Story behind the Person and this is the very first episode, entitled "Self-Belief" with Tom Goodwin.

Tom Goodwin is currently something of a marketing guru within the US, with over 750,000 followers on social media. He has recently pivoted from talking about the future of marketing to having some very outspoken views on Covid and the way the media reports on it. This has created a little bit of a stir, not least because some of his views are seen by a few as controversial (or contrarian...), which culminated in him getting very publicly fired a few weeks ago from a high profile job in New York. 

Gav explores the route of Tom's self-belief and tries to probe a little deeper behind both what happened and why Tom feels this way.

Thank you.

Robert is the Associate Editor of the Observer, and (among other things) the author of an acclaimed biography of PG Wodehouse, several novels, and a stroke memoir, 'My Year Off'. 
Currently, he is writing a short book about ageing, death and dying for baby-boomers entitled 'Every Third Thought'. It's work-in-progress, with the subtitle "Observations on the inevitable endgame", but he hopes it's more uplifting and informative than that suggests. It follows on from 'My Year Off'.

Michael Braungart | Why Less Bad Isn't Better

Podcast cover
Read more

Michael created the concept of “Cradle to Cradle” as a young chemist and, in 2002, with his American friend Bill McDonough, the bestseller 'Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things' was published.

He founded the chemistry division of Greenpeace. His first-class science mind leaves him sceptical about many popular environmental solutions.

Braungart is constantly explaining how much we need to know if we are to make the world a better place. And how much detail we already do know but which we sometimes stubbornly ignore.
