Water Cooler Wisdom

Meet the Hosts

Jake Blocker

Introducing Jake Blocker, the effervescent co-host of "Water Cooler Wisdom" with a career canvas painted over 15 years in marketing and the creative fields. Jake's professional palette has been as varied as it is vibrant—shifting from the meticulous art of graphic design to the strategic symphony of marketing, with a stint of freelancing that let his creativity soar across all sorts of business terrains.

In this podcasting adventure, Jake is jazzed to delve into the mechanics of the mind, sharing a fascination for the psychological cogs and wheels that drive our workplace antics. He's here not as a brainy boffin but as an eager learner, ready to unwrap the science behind our actions in bite-sized, relatable nuggets.

When the mic and laptop are off, Jake's life is a dynamic mix of wanderlust, weight plates, and warrior poses, and the occasional binge of trash TV. His approach to life is much like his approach to his work: a balance of discipline, discovery, and a healthy dose of reality TV. Tune in for Jake's unique blend of humor and insight, making every episode an exploration of the lighter side of office life.
