What is it?

The 43 Folders Podcast is a fast and funny audio trip through the trials of trying to produce great creative work in a world beset by distraction and shiny objects — with a special focus on making the best use of your time and attention toward whatever stuff matters most to you.

Hosted by your old internet friend, and the creator of 43 Folders, the surprisingly-unproductive Merlin Mann.

Merlin's picture


Merlin Mann is an independent writer, speaker, and broadcaster. He’s best known for being the guy who created the website you’re reading right now. He lives in San Francisco, does lots of public speaking, and helps make cool things like You Look Nice Today, Back to Work, and Kung Fu Grippe. Also? He’s writing this book, he lives with this face, he suffers from this hair, he answers these questions, and he’s had this life. So far.

Merlin’s favorite thing he’s written in the past few years is an essay entitled, “Cranking.”

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
