Pickle (n): a tricky situation or quandary. 

The world turns. The game changes. Old rules no longer apply. And things that seemed simple, get really, really interesting.  It’s official: you’re in a pickle. 

Welcome to RMIT Online’s new podcast, The Pickle. A curious forum for everything new in tech, education, business and careers – and the interesting problems that tend to follow. We’ll be chatting to industry leaders about the forces changing their world. What’s working, what’s not working, and what we can do to fix things. It’s a little glimpse into the future of work.  

Especially the pickle-y bits.
