This week we are going to focus on the most relevant topic for a lot of people right now: working from home/remote for the first time, and dealing with it. We’ll talk about setup, some tips and tricks we’ve learned over the last few years, and also staying sane when the news isn’t.
This week we will start to talk about the impact Ursula’s new medicine for ADHD is having on her, how it feels in her head and the initial impact on her work and productivity. We will then follow up with letters sent in by listeners!
We’re taking a departure this week and will talk to Ursula about her writing process. This is enhanced by her joy with having a diagnosis for ADHD, and we’ll spend the first half this week talking about how that came about. We hope you enjoy it!

We’ve had a rough week, and so this week we will talk about dealing with the loss of one of our long-time pets, and it’s impact on our productivity. We will also discuss some of the more difficult aspects of Ursula’s monthly visitor, before we go to a really good interview with friend of the show John “Gene” Anderson.
This week, we will discuss our weekly productivity, good and bad. After that, we will read your letters and answer your questions!
Hi folks! We’re back this week with a discussion of the pressures of deadlines, and how much work we’re both putting in. This also includes a brief discussion of the difficulties of being the person working with people two very different time zones. We then have a long talk with returning guest Michelle Wexelblat and her experiences with Burnout. It’s a long one, but worth it!
This week we talk about the wrapping up of Kevin’s most recent article series, the new small hen, Ursula’s next book release, and how we were and were not productive this past week. And then we have Jadzia Axelrod on to talk about how she stays productive!
Hi folks! This week we will talk about the continuation of Kevin’s series on OpenSource.com as well as what makes a good and a bad copy editor. In the background, you may even hear the Shepherd as she looks over the version of the manuscript the copy editor sent Ursula. Finally, we’re going to have a talk with J. R. Blackwell, and how she stays productive.
Hi folks! It’s been a heck of a week, but here we are to talk about how we have and haven’t been productive – particularly in the last 24 hours. Ursula (the Wombat Co-Host) has edits, and I am working towards a couple of tight deadlines. After that, we’ll read from your letters!
