    Episode 25: Blinded by the Lysol

    As the world hunkers down to battle COVID-19 and millions of office workers start to work from home, Will and Andy discuss their newfound, homebound hobbies and work practices. Will has a coffee subscription service that involves a wi-fi enabled scale, and Andy installed bluetooth light bulbs all over his apartment. So, you know, things seem to be going pretty okay.

    Episode 24: Millennial Costanza Wallet

    New year, same us (Though with 200% more Merlin Mann-style hotel desk bells)! Will and Andy throw back the curtain and show off their phone home screens, their watch faces, and what’s sitting in their Mac app docks. The apps you see there may shock you! Or, of course, it might be just what you expect.

    Will and Andy are joined by Michael J. Metts, Chicago-based UX designer and co-author of the book “Writing Is Designing” with Andy.

    Episode 22: Back on the Grid

    Third time’s a charm! Will and Andy are getting serious… about games. Andy doesn’t like board games because he doesn’t want to work to have fun, but he likes playing Apples to Apples in the Inverted Method. Will’s gonna guess the velocity of the unladen European Swallow with Wingspan, and build his IBM card deck. Plus: EXTREME PLAYDATE CONTENT.

    Whooooo buddy, is this one a long time coming. Will and Andy record IRL. It takes them 22 months to post it. Sounds about right.

    Episode 20: BombCyclone.men

    2017 is finally over, and Will and Andy are talking about new year resolutions for 2018. Specifically, the mechanics of them: how do you set resolutions? How do you keep track of them? How well do you keep them? That, plus lots of chatting about paperback books and “portable word processors” from the early 2000s. Plus, why is there a “.men” TLD but not a “.women”?

Entertaining!

Pretty good podcast. Audio production is consistently good and while the subject matter isn’t necessarily super-original based on the other podcasts I listen to, it’s a nice mix of analog and digital and I still like to listen to every episode!

What I was Looking for!

Exactly describes my thought process and creative process, thank you for making this podcast!

Great content, overbearing host

I have listened to every episode and found the content usually interesting and fresh. However the hosts (particularly Will) often interrupt each other and talk on top of guests..... Two ears, one mouth - something to consider about how much each is used.
