This week, we take a detailed look at why Gabe switched to and continues to use FastMail. We introduce the webapps, basic searching and filtering, and discuss some of the service’s lesser-known but still compelling features.
In this episode I interview writer, speaker, and broadcaster Merlin Mann. We talk about managing all of the inputs that come your way. We go into great depth on managing email and working toward what Merlin has coined “inbox zero.” We also talk about strategies for managing your time and attention in order to set yourself up for doing your best, most creative work. To learn more about Merlin and his work visit http://www.merlinmann.com/. Enjoy this interview with Merlin Mann.

In which we talk with the brilliantly undefinable—yet always gracious—special guest: Merlin Mann. Best known as a cornerstone of the classic indie band Bacon Ray, he’s apparently also a prolific podcaster, renowned blogger, sometimes-comedian, and index card enthusiast. However, he’s here today because of his (and all joking aside) amazing insight into, advice about, and dissection of the areas of productivity, motivation, and, well, just trying to get there. As he tackles our listeners’ questions (as well as our own), we get a couple hours of some classic Merlin-Mann-ing.
