A New Kind of Podcast

I am working on something interesting that may be of interest to anyone with a deep interest in the nuances of time-based productivity.

It’s a podcast based on recordings of conversations with experts visiting 2Time Labs.

The idea is simple. Periodically, innovators, authors, and thought leaders contact me with questions that simply don’t have simplistic answers. Looking for an outside perspective, they bring problems they are trying to solve on their own to 2Time Labs with a view to forging a breakthrough.

Sometimes we are successful, producing a result that surprises us both – a case of serendipity. However, sometimes we also beat our heads against a wall…nice conversation, no result.

During a recent conversation of this nature, it struck me that listeners to my podcast may enjoy hearing some of the discussion we have. It might provide an interesting peek into the inside workings of people in this field who are innovating at the cutting edge. Even when we fail, the conversations are rich.

So far, I have conducted three such recordings and the results are fantastic.

Luckily, I picked some really smart people to start with who have deep knowledge. The conversations, which have been directed towards a single goal in each case, pulls from broad knowledge and experience in the area of time-based productivity.

It’s a far cry from the usual podcast in this genre – an interview with an author who wants to sell some stuff like books or training. As a frequent listener, I have found this format to be a bit stale as the conversation veers into predictable territory – softball questions intended to sell the product. Rarely does anything new happen, or does either person say anything that is brand new.

These new podcasts are intended to produce something new and unprecditable each time… edited down to the most interesting moments.

Hopefully, these will be launched sometime in the March time-frame. Stay tuned.
