Introducing The Superception Podcast
Superception is a native, audio podcast, available on Deezer, iTunes, Overcast, SoundCloud, Spotify, and Stitcher. Most episodes are in French, some in English.
The Superception Podcast provides a complementary outlet to the eponymous blog:
- The blog covers trends and strategies in communications, management, and marketing.
- The podcast features conversations with prominent figures from these fields.
The Superception Podcast
Unlike the audiences of television and radio shows, the listeners of a podcast episode are actively interested in the topic it addresses. This is why the Superception Podcast is carried out in a knowledge transmission perspective: Guests share what they don’t have the opportunity to communicate in a media universe governed by the constraints of immediacy and audience maximization.
Each episode of the Superception Podcast features a conversation with a guest who shares the lessons of their career experience and their vision of their profession. These are informal conversations devoted to the exchange of ideas and not interviews meant to uncover scoops.
The Superception blog and podcast are authored by Christophe Lachnitt in parallel to his professional career in communications. They cover perception issues in the fields of communications, management, and marketing. To date, Christophe has posted more than 3,000 articles in French and English on Superception. The blog is read in 170 countries.
Christophe has also published four books (only available in French):
- “Entre la vie et le vide” (2011) on the management of fear by professional climbers.
- “Donnez du sens, il vous le rendra” (2015) on the power of purpose in company culture and branding.
- “Le génie gênant” (2016) on digital transformation.
- “Prêt-à-penser et post-vérité” (2019) on the digital destruction of democracy.
Christophe has also taught, or continues to teach, at three of France’s most prestigious graduate schools: The Ecole Nationale d’Administration (crisis communications), HEC Paris (branding in the digital age), and Sciences Po Paris (motivation and internal communications in the new workplace).
Last but not least, Christophe Lachnitt has given a TEDx talk in which he recounts how his four encounters with death changed his outlook on life.
