    Contexts

    In this episode we discuss Contexts and how they are used in today’s world. Contexts and their relevance has been a controversial topic for years since people have mini computers in their pockets so all contexts are available all the time, almost. But then came a pandemic and we’re all home 24x7. So now what? The GTDVSG dives in and talks about what contexts mean to us in this new reality.

The Live Call is Back!!

Hi, I’m Daniel Gold, with the GTD Virtual Study Group. I recently welcomed a co-host to the Virtual Study Group! Michelle Gunn has been a listener since 2009 and has an incredibly strong background in GTD, people and project management. Most of all, she not only hears people, but really listens to them to discovery what they’re issues and challenges are and apply real and practical solutions. Michelle will be taking over the live portion of the call, which will occur every 2nd Thursday of each month. On the 4th Thursday of the month, I’ll be releasing a pre-recorded program with an expert in the productivity space. This gives the show a great balance of a supportive group community and serving up expert advice and stories as well. I hope you enjoy and thanks to everyone for being such great listeners!

Sound quality is subpar.

I’ve been listening to other podcasts and I must say the quality of this one is subpar compared to other podcasts out there.

It also feels like it is not very well organized so it does not flow naturally and seamless.

New Format is Boring with Low Production Values

If it ain't broke - change it?

Live call-in episodes are impossible to listen to with an inordinate number of ah's and um's.

Interactive discussion among call in participants has been effectively eliminated. Host wastes way too much time (ummm) spouting how wonderful the guest is. Let them establish that (ummm) with THEIR content. This has become a (ummm) transparent vehicle to promote the (ummm) guest rather than inform the subscriber. A a ummm.
