This week on the podcast, we caught up with Chris Bailey. He was on the show before, talking about his Year of Productivity and how he was writing a book. Now, he’s done the book and talked with us about the process and how productivity has changed his life. Chris is always a fun guest!
Future Chat this week was a fun chat between Mike and I about genetically modified foods, the Tesla recall, and a recent experiment on self-control with kids and raisins.
We also got into a good discussion of online forums in the aftershow. Given the recent changes to Google+, we questioned the validity of wild-west type forums where moderators can stake their claims to certain topics, to the exclusion of others, even in a democratic forum. The aftershow starts at 1:01:41, and though we start from a Google+ angle, the discussion is interesting even if you don’t give a crap about G+.
In a really great series of events in the last couple of months, we got to interview the mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson, on Ottawhat this week. It was a really great time and I’m so glad we got the chance to do that. Hopefully it will lead to even bigger and better things for the podcast!
