    Managers vs. Makers; The Battle of the Daily Schedule

    Nyssa and Lisa review Paul Graham's classic productivity argument (link below!), and reframe it in the context of hospital employees, where the administration (a.k.a. managers) and the boots-on-the-ground medical personnel, specifically nurses (a.k.a. makers), are often at odds because of their wildly divergent schedules.

LOVE IT

This podcast is just what I need! I love that it has 2 people from different professions talking about ER nursing! This is perfect for those newer to any topic they discuss. It provides opportunity to have things that may be “obvious” explained. They also aren’t afraid to keep it real about topics and their humor is on point! I am so glad I found this podcast and encourage anyone who will listen to me to check it out! Keep it up ladies! ❤️
