This week, I am flying solo while the Womat co-host heads out to a speaking engagement. We’ll talk a little about what has kept me from being as productive as I’d like this week, some exciting news, and we’ll wrap up by talking to Emily Guyton-Lange.
In our typical manner, what started as a discussion about what we did this week worked it’s way around to the impact of foot health on our productivity, followed by a discussion of how Ursula isn’t REALLY celebrating the completion of her newest book. After all that, I talk to Claire A. Miller, who is a librarian and crafter, and has some really cool things to share.
This week, we will discuss how one handles being suddenly unemployed, and what I’m doing to cope with it. We will also check in with the Teen Test Subject, and wrap up by talking to author Malka Older.

This week, we will be talking about the distractions we’ve had this last week, and how we’ve dealt with them. We also have some gifts from listeners we’ll talk about, and finally we’ll do a check-in interview with Dylan Wilbanks, who was on last year, to see how his methods have changed.
After a refreshing break, we return this week with our status on catching up post-con. We’ll also talk about how Kevin is using his Bullet Journal and the challenges around having one person use a digital calendar and the other using paper. We’ll check in with the Teen Test Subject, and then talk to Jim C. Hines on how he stays productive!
The time has come, the wombat said, to introduce a new test subject. The Wombat Test Subject won’t be going anywhere (I suppose she is now the Wombat Co-Host?), but we will be starting to work with the Teenage Test Subject, my son Jacob, who is starting his Junior year of High School. After that, we have an interview with the Space Unicorns themselves, Lynne M. & Michael Damian Thomas, publisher and editor of Uncanny Magazine!
This week we will discuss the pros and cons of “disconnecting” as we are about to head off to a short get-away that will have spotty to no internet access. We also talk about balancing out productive and non-productive days. Finally, we have an interview with friend of the show and long-time listener Cori Large, to find out how she stays organized.
This week we talk a little more about why and when we play video games, and how it is important for us (and many others) as part of our self-care routines. We’ll also catch up on the Wombat Test Subject’s productivity, and top it off by talking to my cousin Susan Anderson about how she stays productive.
We are at AnthroCon this weekend, and we are looking forward to meeting everyone of our listeners who is able to come. In the mean time, we have a really good interview with Dr. Jennifer Askey, an Academic and Career Coach.
One week to go until AnthroCon, and we are both in Convention Prep Mode. While I work out better ways to keep the Security team organized and display useful information, the Wombat Test Subject is working on her table display, art, and a whole bunch of other stuff. We will also talk to Diana Harlan Stein, three-time Hugo nominee and fantasy artist.
