It’s Like They Read My Mind
As someone who often fights the internal battle of “should I record this on paper or on my phone?” I find Dot Grid to be a great addition to the very limited roster of podcasts I listen to regularly. The hosts are funny and knowledgable, and their genuine love for analog tools shows through with each episode. Highly recommend.
Really enjoying it!
I really appreciate both Will and Andy and their perspectives on digital and analog tools. I have listened to specifically digital podcasts and analog podcasts and it is easy to get lost in the shuffle, going down the rabbit hole for both. Will and Andy have a great rapport with each other as they explore the intersection of each with an enjoyable amount of depth.
