Nick Milo from Linking Your Thinking joins this week to consider the role of focus in idea development and knowledge management.
A special episode to mark a milestone for the Micro Monday podcast. Manton and Jean talk with Patrick Rhone, who previously appeared on Episode 4. We take a look at how Micro.blog has evolved and where it’s going, focusing on these questions:
How important are independent blogs, considering what we have seen elsewhere in social media?
How has Micro.blog and the community evolved?
How could Micro.blog be improved?
Our pets share opinions too.
Podcast Ep 65: Author Austin Kleon is back on the podcast to talk about making time for your passions, and what stealing like an artist really means.
With Chris Do and Austin Kleon
Everyone’s approach to their side hustle is different, but the end goal usually follows the same narrative: turn the side hustle into a full-time one. The problem is though, with everyone adopting a side hustle, and calling it so, is the term overused? Our guest, Austin Kleon, seems to think so.
In his words, “you shouldn’t have to hustle.” Because if you’re passionate about something, it shouldn’t be exhausting. It should be something you enjoy doing because it brings you a sense of fulfillment.
In this episode, Chris sits down with acclaimed author, Austin Kleon. His most notable books include also happen to be two titles we really love: Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work.
Between blogging, art, reading countless books, and even writing poetry, Austin has an approach to writing that’s interesting and enticing. His experience working with different mediums has allowed him to write in a way that’s short, yet effective, and stays focused on the reader.
But he’s not just a writer. He’s a “writer who draws” and “makes art with words.” He notes that any time he tries to let one side lead, be it the visual or the writer side, it’s usually not a good idea. His secret sauce is finding a way for his two sides to talk together and work in harmony.
If you’re a creative who has strengths in both writing and visual art, or a mixture of any other skills, you don’t have to separate the two to do your best work. Finding a way to balance your skillsets can push you even further ahead than you think.
This conversation is so jam-packed with stories and opinions on what it means to be creative that we broke it up into two parts. In part one, Austin and Chris discuss his background, what changed the game for him, and why he hates the term “side hustle.”
If you’ve started the race as an artist and stolen your way to creativity but found yourself feeling defeated, Austin Kleon invites you to stay creative,…
When your phone buzzes or a notification pops up your screen, do you stop what you’re doing to look and respond? That’s what many of us are doing. Even though we think we should be less distracted by technology, we haven’t admitted the true cost of these interruptions. This week, we revisit our 2017 conversation with computer scientist Cal Newport, and consider ways we can all immerse ourselves in more meaningful work.
Hannah Jane Walker argues that sensitivity is overlooked, dismissed and under-utilised
We kick off the New Year with Jack Baty, a long-time blogger and a partner in a digital development studio since 1995. He has a eclectic mix of
interests that you might want to check out. The fellow pictured in his avatar with the pipe is not him, but it’s a cool story.
Micro.blog has become my favorite place to hang out online. And I’ve hung out in a lot of places online, so that’s saying something.

I first learned of Patrick Rhone when he was among the few that were included in a documentary called Minimalism, A Documentary About The Important Things. Patrick is also the author of the book ENOUGH.
While I was just about to push “record” and do my own podcast on the topic, when I heard back from Patrick I decided to turn this into a conversation. And it is one I thoroughly enjoyed having.
Listen in as Patrick and I discuss what minimalism means to us, how to live as a minimalist (whether or not you choose to label it) when your spouse or partner is not, and the other surprising ways living with less can enhance the quality of our lives.
