Great productivity and life organization podcast

Really enjoying the podcast, great job Rosemary and Scotty. One comment, there has been major feedback noise on Scotty’s microphone. Looking forward to where you two take this.

Sponsored episodes are the worst!

2-part episodes sponsored by a company where the hosts explain why they use a particular product ( that is paying them to say what they are saying). I don’t mind ads and hosts endorsing a product, but multiple episodes are a complete waste of my time. If you want to hear a infomercial for these products, dig right in. I’m unsubscribing.
