Killer Innovations

In September 2021, Phil McKinney hosted a series of podcasts with innovators, founders, and creators in Richardson on his show, Killer Innovations. The award-winning podcast and nationally syndicated talk radio show looks at the innovations that are changing our lives and how their innovators used creativity and design to take their raw idea and create they’re game-changing product or service. Killer Innovatios is the longest continuously produced podcast in history.

Phil McKinney and his guests share real-world practical advice on how to harness the power of creativity and design to create ideas that turn into innovations that radically improve your personal, career and business success. The show is hosted by Phil McKinney, retired CTO of Hewlett-Packard (HP) and author of Beyond The Obvious.

Merrick comes in and helps them get on the same page.
