Productivity tools, life online, and trumpet talk with Todd

Rob catches up with his friend Todd who plays trumpet and teaches music in New York City. This episode was supposed to be about productivity but we veer off into philosophy and music a lot too.

NEW FEATURE: Chapters!

This might show up in your current podcast app (let us know), but if you don’t see chapter markers then we recommend trying out the Overcast app for our podcast. Or don’t, whatever, just an idea.

Rob has a long chat with another good old friend from Band Camp. Todd currently lives and teaches music in New York City. He also studied trumpet, so we occasionally veer into the weeds to learn some interesting (to Rob) facts about trumpets.

If that’s not your thing, don’t despair, we also hit on a few productivity apps and methods that Todd has experience with, talk about similarities between education and tech jobs, and of course get a bit philosophical along the way.
