Ideapod learning revolution


The world is changing fast. What are you doing to change with it? Ideapod is the go-to resource for new ideas and upgrading what and how you think.

Our salons are similar to webinars or masterclasses. We bring a leading thinker to the Ideapod community in an online conversation exploring their big ideas. The topics we cover are diverse, ranging from hypnotherapy to blockchain technology to politics in the Middle East. You can see the current salons we’re playing below. If you would like access to one of our previous salons, become an Ideapod Prime member.

The past, present and future of Ideapod's social network for ideas

Ideapod began as a social network for ideas and evolved into a media network with millions of monthly readers. In May 2018 we took down the social network and will be re-launching it early in 2019, fully integrated with our media platform. Mark Smith (aka @eleprocon) has been using Ideapod in all of its forms and has some unique perspectives to share about its past, present and future.
