A show about two men struggling to reach their goals and attempting to hold each other accountable. One does all the work and the other just shows up. One is famous and the other not so much. One speaks English and the other is still trying to learn the language. Let’s see if they reach their goals or if it’s just theoretical.
||Clean31: Building A New Goal||Joe dropped an atom bomb on his first goal. But what did he replace it with? And why make a big change this late in the game? But wait, how did he examine this new idea and get this far with it so quickly?||12/4/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean30: Goals and Fear with Justin DiRose||Justin DiRose joins Joe and Josh to talk about goals. But they also touch on the difficult topic of fear and how that prevents us from moving forward on our dreams.||11/10/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean29: Welcome to the Productivity Guild Podcast||Theoretical Accountability is now rebranded to The Productivity Guild Podcast. At the same time, Josh is now losing weight. And Joe is potentially staying solo.||11/2/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean28: Analog Podcasting||Josh gets fancy with his shaving. He's also removing peanut butter. Joe likes video calls. Even as a millennial, he prefers the face-to-face meetings. Weird. Oh, and Joe played with OmniPlan.||10/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit27: Season 3 Goals||Joe is fighting with Office 365. Josh is carrying over goals. And Theoretical Accountability is making some big changes.||10/13/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit26: Season 2 Post-Mortem||It's time to be honest and see what Josh and Joe accomplished (or failed to accomplish) over the last 12 weeks. The results are mostly dumpster fires with occasional kittens sprinkled on top.||10/10/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit25: Do Not Disturb While Podcasting||Josh is making last minute changes. Joe has a theory on goal-setting. And season two isn't looking good as we hit the home stretch.||10/4/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit24: What to Do If You Get Screwed||Josh is now a sitter. Joe got ripped off. And that means this episode goes into legal conversation and the woes of doing freelance work online.||9/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean23: It's Raining Sharks||Let's just say Josh gets fired up this round. Thus, an explicit rating is required. In the end, we all need to learn how to work together on teams. Oh! And Josh invented a new rating.||9/16/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean22: Aliens On The Podcast||Joe sabotaged Josh's weight loss goal. He had to do something since he had dumpster fires and didn't want to be alone in the fire.||9/7/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean21: We're Going With Gooder||Joe has lost all the good words. Josh is making a derivative of bacon. And goals were mentioned in here somewhere. Which means this is likely the backwards show.||9/5/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean20: Time For A Do-Over||Josh had a rough first recording. So they re-recorded this week's episode in person. So the audio is a bit raw. Ignore it. Focus on the dumpster fires instead.||8/24/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean19: I Forgot to Pack Underwear||A goal has been met! Now to make it bigger. But another has led Joe down a completely different path. Did we mention Josh became a starfish for a while?||8/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean18: The Guild Turns Pro||Josh encourages Joe to sell the Guild and not be dumb as the Pro section opens. And they both dive into an interesting conversation on being genuine online.||8/9/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit17: The Explicit Show||Josh has been waiting and waiting for this show to get here. And now it's here. You've been warned. Also, Joe has some big news about the Guild.||8/3/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean16: I'm a Blue Person||Fires all around. Joe adds to the list of people he blames for missed goals. Josh is not losing weight. And they both struggle with being real on the internet.||7/27/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean15: Make The Bad Guy Relatable||Josh doesn't like sleeping and learned some things about writing without mental reserves. Joe rebranded the Guild and started pulling in content. And both of them digress on finances and chip cards.||7/19/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean14: What Comes First?||Are Josh and Joe trading places? And how does one go about marketing themselves without coming across as pushy? Also, they want to share more tidbits. So there's more tidbits.||7/13/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean13: Season 2 Goals||Mike Schmitz joins Josh and Joe this round to discuss the new goals they've chosen for season two. Which is tricky since Josh started the show with only two goals.||7/5/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean12: Season 1 Post-Mortem||It's the end of a season, which means Josh and Joe need to go through the last 12 weeks and review their progress. Some things went really well and others were a dumpster fire. But that's to be expected.||6/29/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean11: A Moral Dilemma||Josh is full of requests this time. He also has a moral dilemma that Joe is unable to help with. But it's at least interesting to consider.||6/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean10: Single Character Variable Names||Joe has three thumbs up this week. It's about time. Josh hates meetings but they both decide to contemplate their goals for the next round.||6/14/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||Clean8: You Have Created Audiobooks||Although Joe doesn't like audiobooks, he has created them. And Josh loves being frozen. There's also a bit of a personal note in this one.||5/31/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean7: Making Money While I Sleep||Joe is finally getting Discourse League back on track. And Josh has excellent intercellular water levels. Throw in an added goal and a tweaked goal and the week is complete.||5/22/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean6: The Bacon Stratagem||Josh finished up one of his goals! And that means this show has a lot of conversation about Ignite Minneapolis.||5/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean5: Know Your Stuff||Ignite time is here and Josh is getting nervous. Joe will be there to make sure he doesn't screw it up. But all-in-all their goals on getting back on track. But all-in-all their goals on getting back on track.||5/11/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit4: Blame The In-Laws||The parenting questions continue while Joe struggles to do anything on his goals and Josh preps for his Ignite talk.||5/4/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit3: A Pair of Tirades||Raising kids is hard. And sometimes a bad experience for your child invokes a guttural and passionate response by the parent. Thus, Josh's tirades.||4/24/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit2: The Math Show||Joe had to (almost) double his development rates. Josh keeps trying to do math. It doesn't go as well as expected.||4/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit1: A Good Goat Trail||Joe has not seen Star Wars. Josh likes to make bacon. And somehow in the midst of diversions, they manage to discuss their goals for the next 12 weeks.||4/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
Fun show! Can't wait for more.
I like listening in on how regular guys from the Midwest attempt to attain their goals. And Josh cracks me up with his child like energy (even though he is 10 years older than Joe).
Improving with every episode
Full disclosure, I know one of the hosts of the show very well. They are improving each week. They are entertaining while trying to maintain some semblance of accountability for their goals.
Humanized Goal Setting Advice
One of the negative things about the typical advice-giving podcast is that it can appear to be unreachable for the average person. TA does a great job of showing the hosts as REAL people who have real struggles, and deal with real problems that sometimes keep them from reaching their goals. You don't see the fake, social media side of their success, but you get a glimpse of the entire journey, which makes it much more relatable. Following along and seeing the progress that they make is inspiring - keep up the great work guys!
