    An Indistractable Q&A, with Nir Eyal

    An Indistractable Q&A, with Nir Eyal

    This episode was recorded a couple of weeks ago now - which feels like a lifetime ago in the post COVID19 world. I considered delaying the episode but in the end I decided that the topics we cover - distraction, getting stuff done, being a present & engaged parent and dealing with our own negative emotions - are probably more relevant to many of us than ever, right now.
    So, here's past guest Nir Eyal answering listener questions about distraction and focus, and how we can have more choice over how we direct those things.

    Life Lessons for Freelancers, with Anna Codrea-Rado

    Anna Codrea-Rado is a journalist and podcaster who is, in my humble opinion, doing some of the most important work in the UK freelance community right now. Her work campaigning for fairer payment terms, helping journalists establish their own platforms and bridging the world of journalism with the skills and knowledge of the content creator sphere are game-changing and overdue, and I was super excited to talk with her about all of this and more in today's episode.
