32: No Money, No Problems



This action-packed episode begins with several minutes of Andrew recounting his visit to the Field Notes Brand store in Chicago. Brett and Andrew are both fans. Skip to the 5:30 mark if you don't care about that.

After that, your boys dig deep into the current landscape of productivity tools. Andrew drools on his Surface Pro and Brett sneers condescendingly from behind his iPad Pro.


  • How different platform providers are trying to lock you in
  • Brett squawks about the quality of third-party Windows software
  • Andrew persists in calling Microsoft Word a text editor instead of a word processor
  • A short lesson from Andrew in "what-if runners" in MS Excel. Brett is incredulous.
  • Brett describes what CDNs and CMSs are.
  • Andrew butchers a famous Henry Ford quote.
