The Padverb Podcast with KMO explores the interplay between technology, innovation, communication, and cognition, and examines the role knowledge networks and data-driven technologies play in helping progress along. Our guests are interdisciplinary thinkers and innovators who have harnessed the creative power of combinatorial thinking. Some call them "dot connectors," others – "new knowledge synthesizers." We like to think of them as philosophers of the networked age.
