What I've Discovered About Writing
This conversation picks where I'm reminded that Lam had wanted me to tell him about my new writing habits, which I was eager to do because I'd been trying for a while to articulate what I'd been discovering in the past month. Process—when it's working—turns out to be incredibly hard to explain. Most of this new process originates from a small story in a Seth Godin interview where he shares part of Isaac Asimov's own writing process. There's few better places to seek answers on writing than from Asmiov who was one of the most prolific authors of all time. In fact "prolific" may not even be the right word. We may have to invent a new word. Micheal Crichton is prolific, having written 32 books. Above that is category where you find Stephen King (with approximately 79 books and 200 short stories) and Joyce Carol Oates (with approximately 170 books.) But above them all sits Isaac Asimov who wrote approximately 400 books! 1 Having myself tried the technique that Godin describes, I can understand why Asimov was able to write that many books. This technique, which I refer to as "free writing," is a bit like turning on a fire hose. You'll hear me use those exact words with Lam when I tell him how it scared the hell out of me. This is one of the parts that I was having trouble trying to find words for. The others being: how this ties into habit forming why notebook abandoning is so common among writers why I was continually busting my ass and achieving so little what I got wrong about what writing is how it feels for me to be writing again and another big one: the difference between understanding and knowing Mentioned Media North Star Podcast — Seth Godin: Writing Every Day Wilderness — Jim Morrison The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results — Gary Keller & Jay Papasan The Tim Ferriss Show #483 with Jim Collins Read Chad's blog (itmattersbutitdoesnt.com) and follow Lam on Instagram (instagram.com/thevacantroom)

Lam Nguyen and the Sugar Boogers
Lam returns from two months in the Sarlacc pit we affectionately call the 2020 election. as usually we talk about more stuff than I care to list but the nature of political opinions, the future of news, the credibility of garbage content, and the scorpion tale of corporations all come up. Yet! I honestly don't think this is a heavy episode.

...And We're Back!
Lam & I have returned—not just for a pop-in episode but in an on-going way! We're really excited to be back and we're cracking a few beers to celebrate. Things get a little sloppy as we talk about why we're back, how we got here, and where we think we're going. Then we have an interesting conversation about streaming video programing wherein we long for episodic television, we question the hour long format, and we admit how little the difference between good tv and bad tv matters. We hope you're as happy about our return as we are! Lam's Beer: Taco Trunk by Dustbowl Brewing Co. Chad's Beer: Mind Circus by Russian River Brewing Co.

Are Our Brains Built On Maps?
Howard Eichenbaum believed that our abilities for auto-biographical memory and imagination may be built upon the hippocampus' spacial structures—that what we refer to as "mental maps" may literally be mental maps.
