#93 - The next Squid Games?

26 mins | Nov 12, 2021

Today's episode from 12th November 2021. First this Friday: After winning an Oscar for Parasite, breaking the internet with K-Pop and now topping the TV charts with Squid Game, we discover the secret behind South Korea's success in entertainment and explore what the country's next biggest export could be. The later, transitioning back to the office shouldn't be this hard, should it? The commute, chatty colleagues and in-person meetings are not conducive to productivity. We show you how to reclaim control over your work. Having given the world K-pop, Parasite and Squid Game, South Korea has infiltrated its way into the global cultural consciousness. Now, it wants to push this success even further by creating global platforms to distribute its content. From the Financial Times, Christian Davies explores the meteoric rise of the Korean entertainment industry and how it is likely to take note of the tech-term of the moment. After more than a year working from home, returning to the office feels almost like it is designed to kill productivity. Colleagues can’t help but chat, background noises sound louder, and multitasking seems near impossible. For The Wall Street Journal, Rachel Feinzeig provides tips and tricks to help boost your productivity and decrease frustration at your workplace. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
