The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 1

What size and why....

So what is this you might ask.... something new for me as well.


Karine (Tovmassian) and I have been planning this for some time and finally we got to record a proper episode after we had done a couple of test discussions we recorded and had technical problems with.

I hope you will listen to the first episode, we know it is not 100% perfect, we still have our 'L' plates on! We have already been discussing how we can improve our techniques for Episode 2 and beyond. Given that we live over 3800 miles apart on either side of the Atlantic, it took a little bit of working out on how to get the recording to the point of being acceptable.

There are some technicalities that we are still playing around with, I'm still learning how to use the software fully, but hopefully with more practice things will get better.

So in future episodes we hope to discuss and chat about a lot of planner related topics both ring bound and conventional bound planners. In the future we will have a spot for listeners questions, interviews with people in the planner community and a lot of things that we hope that will be popular.

We have aimed to keep each episode to around the 30 minute mark, so we don't take too much of a chunk out of your day.

So on to our maiden voyage with the 'show notes' below....roll the tape... action:
