The Weekly Review:

A Podcast About Starting (or Restarting) The Chapter of Your Life in Which You Get Organized

Hosts: James Dempsey and Jean MacDonald

Whether you are new to task management or you’ve fallen off the wagon a few times, this podcast is for you.

Once a week, Jean and James review their progress toward a more organized (and less stressful) way of life, and talk about highlights, challenges, and questions. Sometimes they ask the experts to chime in. But the focus will always be on how two friends, who not productivity gurus, figure out how to make this system work for them longterm.

The podcast is short because we have things to get done!

We’d love to hear your questions, comments and tips! Email us at sayhello@theweeklyreview.fm.
