Introducing Free Agents

Last year at WWDC, I had tea with Myke, Jason Snell and David Sparks.

At the time, I was on the fence about leaving my job to work on Relay FM full-time. It made sense on paper, but I was nervous about taking my fate into my own hands.

All three of them were already independent, and were very open about the challenges and rewards that working for yourself brings. (I think they'll admit there was a little peer pressure going on too, but that's beside the point.)

Today, Jason and David are launching a new fortnightly podcast named Free Agents. It's all about work, and while they are both self-employed, the topics on Free Agents are applicable to all sorts of people.

Here are some topics on the list:

  • Collaboration
  • Work/Life balance
  • Mobile working
  • Hiring and firing
  • Email management
  • Passion projects vs. paying the bills

In addition to topical episodes, David and Jason will be interviewing creators and entrepreneurs. It's going to be a lot of fun, and you should go check out the first episode now.
