    S02E07 - We Got Us a Live One!

    Prior to the pandemic, we had the opportunity to travel to Jacksonville Statue University in Jacksonville, AL and talk to some members of their chapter of Delta Sigma Pi about our views on work and work culture. They had lots of great questions, we pulled out some okayish answers! We had a blast working with them, and hope to do more live speaking engagements soon.

    This week we're joined by John Fitch and Max Frenzel, the authors of the brand new book "Time Off". John and Max present some challenging ideas around how we should rest as hard as we play - seriously! We loved talking to them about their book, their lives, the fact that we were in three different timezones and two different countries while we recording this, and more! Definitely a must-listen.

    After this episode, you'll definitely want to grab a copy of their book – pick it up at: https://www.timeoffbook.com/
