In Too Deep PodcastNew Episodes

This month we have two new interviews on the In Too Deep podcast with Sam Rye and Luke Craven that you won’t want to miss.

In our conversation with Sam Rye we touch on a variety of topics – from the role of nature in encouraging greater presence, the importance of an experimental focus, how to combine systems analysis, strategy and prototyping, and why we need to focus far more on relationships.

Luke Craven shares his systems effects methodology, some of the challenges in traditional systems mapping, and secrets for how to bring more of a user understanding of complex systems into social science and policy making practice.

And if you missed our first four episodes, you can listen to them here or search for “In Too Deep” wherever you get your podcasts.
