Jamie Flinchbaugh and I got a great response to the first episode of our new “Lean Whiskey” podcast. We've had a great time with this and I'm happy that anybody is willing to listen :-)
We've done our second episode, with more to come. I also plan on going some other Lean Whiskeys with a few guest hosts — other Lean friends I've known for a long time (but not as long as Jamie).
Here is the second episode if you want to stream it:

Episode #2 Show Notes
In Episode 2 of Lean Whiskey, Mark Graban and Jamie Flinchbaugh, longtime friends, lean thinkers, and whiskey enthusiasts, join forces to enjoy a casual conversation — mostly about lean and a little bit about whiskey.
We start by thanking the listeners of Episode 1 who shared their response to hearing the program.
We continue by exploring the one true “lean thinking” driven whiskey of Glenns Creek Distillery, by The Toyota Way Fieldbook author David Meier. We also explore lean news covering GE, Danaher, and Boeing, before answering our listener question about production quotas and standards. We end with a final fun question about our favorite lesser-known lean thinkers.
Here are links to what we discussed:
- Glenns Creek Distillery
- Founder David Meier's book, The Toyota Way Fieldbook
- Larry Culp goes to GE
- “Claims of Shoddy Production Draw Scrutiny to a Second Boeing Jet,” and Mark's blog post about the article
- Kaplan and Johnson's Relevance Lost
- H. Thomas Johnson's Profit Beyond Measure
- Don Wheeler's Understanding Variation
