In season one of Teamistry, we put the spotlight on teams behind the scenes, the people responsible for some of the greatest achievements of our times. Like the team of astronomers who gave us the first-ever photograph of a black hole, and the team that averted a nuclear meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In season two, host Gabriela Cowperthwaite takes us beyond the heroics of a single team and expands the focus to the power of multiple teams working together. How groups of teams – with different sets of skills, experiences, and even personalities – can embrace uncertainty, innovate, and tackle massive challenges. In this new season, we examine the story of Japanese watchmaker Seiko and how the company used internal competition to ultimately leapfrog the mighty Swiss. We follow the frantic moments where teams of teams, including international cave divers, doctors, engineers, government officials, and more, used communication to save a teenage soccer team from deep within a cave in Thailand. And you'll hear directly from the "Trinity" – Iceland’s chief epidemiologist, the Director of Health, and the superintendent of police – who worked in harmony to contain the spread of COVID-19 when it threatened to become an outbreak.
