One of my top 3 favorite podcasts

The Informed Life is fascinating and mind building for anyone with the least bit of interest in how people organize their lives. Jorge asks great questions that make me feel compelled to make a note. So many gems on how to manage all this information we face on the daily and to use it to your advantage. PS: If PKMs are your thing, check out Jorge’s book, Duly Noted. So much more helpful than Smart Notes, IMO. Thanks for this podcast, Jorge!

I have listened to almost every episode and I highly recommend Jorge and this podcast. He has great guests, he asks insightful questions, and if you work I Design as I do, this is a must listen show.

I’m glad this podcast exists

I’ve always been interested in Information Architecture (IA) as a field, but I didn’t know where to start. The conversations between the host and his guests on this show are a fantastic resource for me and, I think, for others who might be interested in learning what IA is all about and the ways in which it applies to everyday life.
