Back to Work is an award winning talk show with Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin discussing productivity, communication, work, barriers, constraints, tools, and more.
Hosted by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin.
TOPIC: Youth is the aberration.
This week, Dan provides updates on his Hackintosh project, which leads to a discussion of finding reviews and advice with context. The hosts realize, acknowledge, and quickly move past their program’s 6th anniversary, spending more time on that drum sound Merlin makes with his mouth.
Recent email pitches are discussed, and advice is offered on smarter ways to pitch strangers on practically anything.
Merlin responds to a question from a listener about learning to find inspiration in the absence of crisis.
