Useful and Comforting

Productivity Alchemy is my new “comfort listen” podcast. I like learning how other people think, also the banter, and occasional tangents onto special interests (chickens!)

Encouraging in all the good ways

Practical, big-hearted, flexible, & funny. Try something, change something, and hear how other interesting people try to get, remain, or return to being productive.

Meets you where you’re at

Productivity Alchemy is a productivity podcast that doesn’t leave me feeling inadequate, and that actually gives me some tools to be gentle with myself while I keep working on my own stuff. It’s funny, nerdy, and down to earth.
