  • Everyone needs a bit of Cal Newport in their life!

    I first came across Cal via the Minimalists. Since then I’ve read So Good They Can’t Ignore You, Deep Work & Digital Minimalism and they’re all fabulous books that have given me actionable ideas about how to improve my own productivity. If you’re interested in improving your productivity, or becoming less attached to your devices in order for you to extract more from your life then listening to this podcast is a must! Keep up the great work Cal

  • 5 Stars! One questions - what’s up with “drawling?”

    This is one of my favorite podcasts right now, so much good content! Love the deep dives and the case studies. There is one thing that flummoxes me, however. Cal says “drawling” instead of “drawing.” Why? Is this an east coast thing? Have people corrected him and he just delights in the idiosyncrasy of it? I HAVE TO KNOW 😬
