The Best

Two episodes in and this could quite possibly be the best podcast on the net today.

If you are a fan of Merlin Mann, then this is a no-brainer. Download an Ep and take a listen, what have you got to lose?

5 stars.

Please Merlin, keep this going.


Merlin Mann's hyperactive commentary is perfectly complemented by Dan Benjamin's soothing voice. Funny, incisive commentary of this calibre is precious.

Makes you feel better about life... somehow

I won't say that this is strictly a productivity podcast because they spend so much time talking about other things but I do find myself feeling more sure about my own life and work the more I listen to this show. And I've picked up lots of good ideas about how to enjoy my life and work more (and be more productive) from the show.

Though nothing I can put on a "Top 5 things..." list readily.

Just listen to it.
