Apple Education Event, with Friend Chris Russell (Season 3, Episode 4)

Task App Showdown, with Friend Craig McClellan (Season 3, Episode 3)

Craig returns to the show to talk about how we manage tasks, and the apps we use to manage them. There is a strong emphasis here on two of the premium task apps for Mac and iOS, Things and OmniFocus. 

This episode isn't so much a showdown between Craig and I or one app and another. It is more a celebration of the great features of pro task apps that we depend on to manage our teaching careers. For me, there is an ongoing showdown between these apps in my mind, as I constantly contemplate which tools best help my brain to stay focused on the task at hand. It was fun to process that with Craig.
