We’ve lost so much routine for the mornings and evenings during the summer holiday. Tonight Iris didn’t get to bed until 11 pm and Ebbe was up even later. We need to do something about this, but I’m not sure what.
Today the kids and I took a trip to Rättvik and hung out with my father for a few hours, had Rättvik’s Ice-Cream and strolled on the boardwalk. Then we took an extended drive for the way home just to keep us busy for a while. The kids are really easy to go on long car trips with. They love to be in the car.
Linn has been doing a lot of cleaning and picking up an order of groceries and together we’ve mowed the lawn.
Tomorrow is Linn’s birthday, so I’ll need to get to bed soon.

@MrHenko Not just you, I got rid of many podcasts I used to enjoy but no longer did for that same reason. Made room for some excellent new ones, so win-win.

@MrHenko At @HemisphericViews we work hard to keep things tight at around 45 minutes per episode, and when we go over there’s usually a good reason. Respect the listener’s time!

@canion @mrhenko 💯 this, one of so many reasons I love this podcast!

@pimoore @MrHenko Thank you! That is great to hear. It’s rewarding to know that the work is being enjoyed.

@MrHenko Not just you. Lazy presenters wasting everyone’s time. It might take you 15 minutes to cut 5 minutes of fluff, but if you’ve got even 100 listeners you just saved the world 500 minutes!

@jeremycherfas A terrific perspective. Too many people don’t think about the hours wasted in meetings!

@jeremycherfas ”Each of these Quarterly Meetings were large and sat near eight hours. Here I had occasion to consider that if is a weighty thing to speak much in large meetings for business… In three hundred minutes are five hours, and he that improperly detains three hundred people one minute, besides other evils that attend it, does an injury like that of imprisoning one man five hours without cause.” — The Journal of John Woolman, 1758

@JMaxB not much has changed down the years. Thanks for that.

@pimoore Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Part of the problem is probably that I’m falling out of love with the format of more ”personality driven” podcasts.

@canion That’s a good principle! I haven’t listened to Hemispheric Views (yet?), but I’ll put it on my mental list for when I want to add more podcasts to my queue.

@jeremycherfas That’s a good way to look at it, and Eat This Podcast is a great example of a podcast that gets to the point. 👍🏻
