This Human Business is a podcast that explores the new movement to reassert the value of the human experience, in an age when an obsession with digital tools of automation has created a dangerous imbalance in the corporate world. The podcast looks into the use of mythology and storytelling to evoke emotional engagement, the role of rituals in commercial culture, new radically human forms of thick research that complement Big Data, human reactions to new business technologies, dark and hopeful visions of the future, digital racism, and the fluid opportunities for dynamic interactions with gender and identity in the business world. It then transforms into the articulation of emotional granularity, exploring the business of being human.

In the interviewers chair for over 30 years, Milt Rosenberg exemplifies utterly implausible radio. Whether the topic is foreign policy or American politics, the state of the English language, the history of World War II, the latest discoveries in astrophysics, what local chefs cook for their own dinners, or the guest is a Pulitzer or Nobel Prize winner, you won't hear anything, anywhere, quite as stimulating or quite as fascinating. Past guests of note include Margaret Thatcher, David McCullough, Henry Kissinger, David Mamet, Colin Powell, John Updike, William Safire, P.D. James, Richard Posner, Phillip Roth, Robert Bork, Gary Becker, William Bennett, Norman Mailer, George Will, Jim Lehrer and on and on--virtually a cast of thousands of interesting and significant people. It's no wonder Talkers Magazine cites him as the "Nation's leading author interviewer". Authors, journalists, scientists, newsmakers, professors, and even the occasional cab driver or waitress-all have sat across the table from Milt to opine on a wide array of topics. Among the panel discussions recently featured: Adventures in the cab (or PR firms, or the restaurant trade) recent developments (or historical perspectives) in law, sociology, film criticism, the talk trade itself and ad infinitum.
