    The Deposition
    Play trailerElon Musk was recently deposed in a defamation lawsuit. Musk and his lawyer, Alex Spiro, attempted to retroactively make the deposition confidential. It was not. It is, though, extremely funny. The Deposition, a new podcast by Hug House Productions, uses the transcript of the deposition in full as its script. Part reenactment, part reaction, the direction given to the actors is simple: Play your parts as seriously as you can until you absolutely cannot.
    The Rest Is History
    Rephonic’s James Potter notes that The Rest Is History revealed on stage that they’re at 45,000 members and 10m downloads/mo. “Assuming the cheapest £6/mo membership plan that’s ~$350k/mo.”
    Total Innovation Podcast
    Total Innovation is new today from Wazoku, an innovation firm. The show will feature some of the biggest names in the innovation sector, covering everything from best practice in open innovation, how to overcome barriers to innovation and instilling a culture of innovation within an organisation. It’s hosted by the company’s CEO, Simon Hill.
