Welcome to episode #494 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Mirum Podcast. The last time that I saw Misha Glouberman was in the mid-eighties. We went to high school together (he was three years older than I was). I had not heard his name until the other week, when our Executive Creative Director at Mirum, Jon Finkelstein, asked me if I ever read the book, The Chairs Are Where the People Go: How to Live, Work, and Play in the City, which was co-authored with Sheila Heti and is a collection of his thoughts. The book was called “a triumph of what might be called conversational philosophy… hilarious and humane” by The New Yorker. Now, Misha is an expert on the subtle arts of negotiation and communication. His presence and work has been called transformative. He is also the host of Trampoline Hall, a lecture series which has sold out every show in its home city of Toronto since its inception, in 2001, and which has toured around North America. (“We love it” — The Village Voice). In everything he does, Glouberman combines a creative people-cantered approach with analytic rigour: he was previously a software developer, and has a philosophy degree from Harvard. Enjoy the conversation…
