LISTEN: Top 10 “How I Built This” episodes

I recently binged on several dozen episodes of How I built this over a few long flights and a couple long nights. These are what I believe to be the most insightful, heartfelt, and inspiring stories:

  1. Jonah Peretti (new media mogul)
  2. Blake Mycoskie (three-time entrepreneur)
  3. Barbara Corcoran (real estate mogul)
  4. Sarah Blakely (corset underwear inventor)
  5. Jimmy Wales (encyclopedia savant)
  6. Jack Conte (artistic crowd-funder)
  7. Tony Hsieh (online shoe kingpin)
  8. Rick Steves (travel magnet)
  9. Vlad Tenev (Wall Street disrupter)
  10. Ben & Jerry (modern ice cream pioneers)

Honorable mention: Joe Gebbia (home share inventor)

Listening to this podcast is guaranteed to make you smarter and happier

I was recently interviewed by Kim Forrester, a wellbeing podcaster from New Zealand, about my book Log Off: How to Stay Connected after Disconnecting.

I hope you enjoy her delightful accent and questions as much as my answers related to sustainable technology use, how quarantine has changed the rules (or hasn’t), and what you can do right now to reclaim your nights and weekends.

Thanks for listening.

16 years as a freelance writer: How I got to where I am today (hint: luck & persistence)

I was recently on a podcast to talk about my education and career path towards becoming a full-time freelance writer for the past 16 years. If you have 30 minutes to spare, I hope you enjoy my remarks. If you don’t have that much time, the short answer is lots of luck and persistence. Either way, I’m still pinching myself.

Thanks for having me on the show, Doug.
