119: The Polyglots
The story of how Michael and Radek learned English, German, and other languages. Michael’s way was to watch lots of movies and sing lots of songs. Meanwhile, Radek plugs in historical spaced repetition learning data from his very first magic spreadsheet (again!).
118: More Than Good Enough
After a few months of heavy iPad use, Radek admits: despite its (obvious) flaws and limitations, iPad Pro is a surprisingly good computer.
There’s still ways to go, but with some determination and a shift in mindset, there are very few things you can’t do on an iPad.

We live very distracted lives and most of our working days are filled with shallow tasks and interruptions. In this age when more and more jobs are being automated, we can get a competitive edge if we get good at performing deep work — important work at high levels of attention.
Unfortunately, our environments don’t support it, and shallow work is just easier. Michael and Radek discuss the topic — ideas, and strategies from the book “Deep Work” in achieving a more productive work life.
