Swearing In The Workplace and that "natural padding" comment

In episode 76 of the IR Simplified podcast, I share my thoughts on swearing in the workplace. While some language may be inappropriate, should we really be getting upset about it.

Welcome To 2019

Episode 75 of the IR Simplified Podcast is a short one. With 2019 being an election year, and a change of government predicted, now is the time to prepare for what might be coming.
