If you’re trying to make a difference in the world and nobody’s noticing, maybe what you need are the skills of a Hype Artist. The hustlers, the cult leaders, the promoters all have something to teach us about human psychology and how to connect with people emotionally.
Whether you’re starting a band or a company, whether you want to advance your ideas or your career, understanding hype can be helpful. Even essential. That’s the premise of Michael F. Schein’s “The Hype Handbook”, just published by McGraw Hill.
We talk about the Grateful Dead, the Grand Guignol, hip hop and rebellious project management. We touch on Jim Jones and Andrew Loog Oldham. Join us to find out how you can have more impact on the world, even when you’re working from home.
Stuff we talk about:
- Jim Jones
- Jason Fried’s TED Talk
- The Grand Guignol
- The Grateful Dead — “Ripple”
- Andrew Loog Oldham
- The Rolling Stones — Interview 1965
- Andy Warhol interview
And if you like what you hear, please leave us a review. It’ll help other people find us. Thanks!
