Back to Work #437: The Credit Section

August 6, 2019 at 2:45PM • 1 hour 5 minutes

Dan and Merlin explore the complexities of personal style. Not personal style as in fashion, but as in preferences, identity, and modes of interaction. How do we let others know how we are?

How do we derive a sense of what works best for us, and why is it such a shameful struggle to effectively communicate that to others? What do AirPods, Snapchat, and Bloomberg Terminals potentially have in common?

And, would it be cool if I just listen to this podcast instead of talking about my blouse and the weather?

Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.

Back to Work #436: Better Than a Lipstick

July 30, 2019 at 4:00PM • 1 hour 10 minutes

DISCUSSED: the admirable candor of B.B. King; the simple joys of the Ordinary Night; movies that are or are not dated and how that affects your enjoyment; how sci-fi seemed to mostly miss the internet; our embarrassment of media options; tech in media and what it means for plot stuff; technology adoption curves are definitely speeding up; doing everything you can not to use your phone as a phone; more generational stuff; how time and context changes our perception; should they take all the smoking out of movies and tv?; remember: you're not making errors—you're adding information; and, finally, Dan has an exciting announcement and a wet notebook.

Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.
