Jon Hickman and Mark Steadman seek to better understand and shape the world around them. Each week they assign each-other a piece of homework designed to help their counterpart live a better life, or take one more step along the journey to fully winning at life and conquering the Internet.
They also procrastinate. Like, a lot.

Great chemistry for a friendly homework show.
Hosts Mark and Jon check in with each other and at the end of each episode assign homework for them to do that week, like take an improv class or make sourdough bread or finish coding a website.
It’s a great reminder and encouragement to get through the little things that make life better.
They also crack jokes in their beautiful British accents. So. Winning.
