In March, I wrote this about the idea of a “companion” podcast that could be listened to while doing something (or learning something) related to what you were listening to:
This kind of podcast could not just be played in your regular playlists though—you need to be at your computer ready to listen. It could guide you in a vague way, so that you have to think in order to do the tasks, not just listen while you exercise.
At the time I was thinking about a programming podcast, and that somehow you listened while you were doing tasks it described.
But this ultimately turned into Write While True, which is a podcast that ends with a writing-related exercise that you do right after it’s over. So, not exactly what I thought it would be, but more of a prompt. I do believe in hacking your behavior via prompts, so this is good with me.
