I caught up with Greg Pierce, developer of Drafts for iOS and Mac, on Systematic 237 this week. It didn’t get as nerdy as you might expect from the combination of the two of us, but we covered all the fun stuff. I’ve stopped doing my own Top 3 Picks every week, which has been helpful in preventing burnout, but it’s still one of my favorite ways to get to know my guests. You can learn a lot about a person by looking at what they’re excited about, and Greg had many media favorites to share.
Then this thing happened on Overtired 204 where the conversation went from YouTube personalities to the Holocaust in zero seconds flat. It was my fault, I had recently learned about the sordid history behind Aspergers Syndrome. And then I had to find out that IBM was a mover and shaker in… Nazi Germany. I challenge you to pivot from that conversation into fun tech stuff, let alone segue smoothly to the sponsor break that came between. Deftly handled. Or daftly. It’s really hard to tell with this podcast sometimes.

My ability to keep the shows going is dependent on my ability to secure advertisers, which is in turn dependent on subscriber numbers. Getting yourself counted in my download stats (and maybe checking out the sponsors now and then) is all you have to do to support either or both shows!
