Episode 98 – Getting Ready, Alicia (Day) Baker Update

This week, we talk about getting ready to cover things while Kevin is out of the loop, the new project Ursula is fiddling around with, filling fountain pens, and the double-edged sword of online community for those of us that word from home. We then get to catch up with Alicia (Day) Baker, who tells us how her productivity has changed since we spoke last year.

    Three thoughts about today’s episode. 1st great interview great to hear how things have changed. 2nd do you still shudder if someone mentions CUPS or was your printing trials prior to that being a thing. 3rd for the dick waving reply “for a few hundred bucks I can stop at the store and wave all the dicks”

      I really appreciated Alicia’s (and her husbands’) willingness to be so open about the impact of PTSD and anxiety on a couple. Having someone else talk frankly about the challenges of being the “most well” (especially when “most well” is NOT the same as actually well) of a couple was really validating for me. I’ve been in a similar position for several years, and it is really hard.

      It was incredibly validating to listen to someone else talk about how hard it is to manage.

    Still listening to this episode but just wanted to say I had the same reaction as Kevin did when you met what I presume is an ultra wide monitor in action.

    If it was curved, man that makes it even more of a beauty. I’m now aiming to reward myself with an ultrawide monitor if I can finish a set of pretty hard tasks ahead of their due dates at work.

    Amateurs waiting 5 years to get married, Pooch and I waited until our relationship was legally allowed to drink before we threw it a big party.

  4. I’m super behind on my episodes, but Alicia (and her husband’s ) willingness to be open about the impact of mental and physical illness on a relationship was really validating to me. I too am the “most well” in my relationship, and the extra logistical load of a partner who cannot consistently manage their own stuff is a special challenge.

    It was nice to hear from another person who deals with this.

    Thanks so much for sharing.
