Are book clubs still a thing? Even if they are, may I interest you in the cooler, more hip version? It’s called the Executive Podcast Club. And here at the Executive Podcast Club, D CEO gathers up Dallas-area business leaders to tell us which podcasts they are listening to.

Printed in D CEO’s December issue, here’s what they had to share.

Dr. Death

“Although it is sobering as a physician, given the tragic events chronicled, the Dr. Death podcast is a must-listen. It confronts difficult questions about how ingrained systems, processes, and perverse incentives can lead to horrible outcomes and breaches of trust. The key lesson is that we must redouble our efforts to challenge assumptions and recommit to putting our patients at the center of everything.” ⁠—Sanjay Shetty, Steward Health Care

Business Wars

“The Business Wars podcast strikes the right balance of being educational and entertaining. Several clients are profiled, and it’s interesting to hear about their early days that shaped their businesses today.” ⁠—Jason Downing, Deloitte

The Tim Ferris Show

“It’s a tie between The Tim Ferriss Show and At the Table with Patrick Lencioni. Ferriss has a wide array of guests, and the interviews are deep. I learn something new every time. At the Table offers quick, practical leadership tips.” ⁠—Deborah Gibbins, Mary Kay

The Revisionist History

“The Revisionist History podcast by Malcolm Gladwell is fantastic. I’ve found myself deeply thinking about my leadership and our business in new ways after listening to an episode—even the one on McDonald’s French fries!” ⁠—Chris Kelly, Ebby Halliday Cos.

Double Date

“At the moment, I am loving the Double Date podcast with Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue. They interview long-married, famous couples in a fun and casual way about what makes relationships work.” ⁠—Kellie Fischer, Texas Rangers

TAKE A LISTEN

Chasing Scratch

“Chasing Scratch: A Golf Podcast follows two dads in their mid-30s who have 11 handicaps but aim to become scratch golfers. It’s a story about dedication and perseverance, with plenty of humor.” ⁠—Zach Fee, UMB Bank

TAKE A LISTEN

Race at Work

“I recommend Race at Work with Porter Braswell. He and his guests open up about the role race plays in our careers and lives. The insights are unique, highly relevant, and actionable for business leaders.”⁠ —Sandy Cross, PGA of America
