Working: “Get Off the Freaking Internet”
Thursday, 13 January
Welcome to the debut episode of Working Overtime! In these bi-weekly episodes, June, Isaac, and Karen dissect creative advice—and sometimes offer it to listeners and each other. This week, they discuss a piece of advice from cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who argues that avoiding the Internet every once in a while can lead to more focus and productivity. In the discussion, the hosts assess whether the internet helps or hurts their creative work and share some strategies for logging off when necessary.
Do you have a piece of creative advice to share? Or maybe you could use some advice from the Working crew. Either way, get in touch at email@example.com or leave a message at (304) 933-9675.
