Fundamentally, Unthinkable is a podcast about creativity -- creativity at work, creativity used to enact change, and creativity as a form of practice, improvement, and exploration.

For several years, the show focused on one problem, one source of frustration: our obsession with best practices, and all the problems that causes. So we set out to change how we all see the work. Now, we're embarking on a new adventure -- to change how we see ourselves.

Let's stop acting like experts and start acting like explorers. In fact, that's what we are. Idea explorers. You and me? We're fellow travelers. We know that where we stand right now, the status quo for ourselves as individuals, our teams, our industries, communities, society, where we stand right now, isn't going to do. In the distance we see the mountain peak, but between here and there is a jungle and we have no idea how to get there.

So we're picking up our machetes and we're going to hack through it. We're going to try to reach that mountain peak, swing after swing, episode after episode. That's what creativity is: attempts. Practice. It's just repetition plus reinvention, over time. It's exploration, and we're setting out to find and learn from some inspiring Idea Explorers.
