...in which we talk about all the ways to make your work come alive. And that one time a speech of mine went sideways.
...in which we talk internal goals, external goals, and why productivity hackers are of no use to me right now.

...in which Branden Harvey, creator of the GoodNewspaper and the Sounds Good podcast, talks with me about having an audience, doing good work, and ongoing creativity.
...in which we talk quitting social media, reclaiming the soul, and striving for depth. (Fexit questions answered here.)
