Hi everyone! This week, we talk about the cholera vaccine, how it may impact Kevin’s code homework for one of his job interviews. We also talk about Ursula’s latest projects, her latest contact announcement, and how this is all impacting her productivity. We wrap it all up by talking to Sharon J. Gochenour!
This week we’re not doing the usual thing – instead we’re going to listen to the talk Kevin and returning guest Dino Sarma had about getting an interview, what hiring managers often look for, and how to tailor your resume to suit the job and focus on your skills. We even talk about the dreaded cover letter! It’s a long one, so I hope you enjoy it!
This week we are both in flurry of things that need to be done with deadlines in the very, very near future. It is stressful, and we talk about some of the side effects of that. We also discuss our progress on those projects, and wrap it all up by talking to artist and fellow traveller Laura Garabedian.
This week we talk about the things that go into planning and running a conference, and the things lots of us don’t think about when we attend or staff one. There is also a review of some new products, talk about our upcoming China trip, and a new bundle that’s out now. Finally, we talk to Anne “Tyrrlin” Williams about how she stays productive!
It’s that time again, when we read your letters on air! We also discuss our productivity for the week, and there is a discussion of why a particular YA book was so popular when Kevin was in High School. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!
This week, well talk about the frustration in trying to find remote jobs, and what Kevin’s job market looks like. We’ll also talk about Ursula’s hitting of a milestone, a little conflict resolution, and then wrap it all up with an interview with Meera Stapleton. Enjoy!
This week we talk about what happens to us mentally when we finish a big project. We also discuss how outlining a novel is like doing a project plan, as well as how that goes sideways once the project is underway. I wrap it all up by talking to Seraphim Dibble and how they stay productive.

This week we will talk about the difficulties our Wombat Co-Host (artist and author Ursula Vernon) is having with design and fonts, and how that is actually an Agile process. We don’t dig too deep into Agile and Scrum, but we do give a brief summary of what they are and how they are (and aren’t) used. We also check in with the Teenage Test Subject, and then talk to Sandra Tayler about how she stays productive.
This week on our productivity check-in, we talk about the projects we are both moving forward on. It is a good week so far, and added to that, I get to share the talk I had with Howard Tayler a few months ago. Enjoy!
I have returned from MAGFest, and have a severe backlog. We’ll discuss how that affects me, how it affects Ursula, and what we’re doing to get it all done. And thinking of a backlog, we’ll be reading your letters this week, and getting that done at the very least.
