Links and Show Notes


"Suggest podcast chapters for this episode. Aim for 15-20 chapters overall. Try to name the chapters descriptively and split them apart when the script moves between topics, themes, or vibes. Where possible, name the chapter using an unusual phrase or sentence that someone said during that particular chapter. Try to make sure there’s a new chapter marker at least every three minutes."
