Stuff I like

Over time, certain websites, podcasts, blogs and apps have become staples in my life. On this page I document those that have become part of my everyday workflow.

At the moment, the list consists of resources I’d say fit into two categories:

  1. websites, podcasts, blogs and apps that are focused on living a better life
  2. websites, podcasts, blogs and apps that are focused on financial literacy and independence

I suspect this will change over time, but at present, these are the two dominant themes in my information diet.

You’ll notice that the list isn’t huge. A while back I committed to only trying to maintain a handful of sources of learning at any one time. Otherwise it becomes ungainly and you don’t extract from the resources the value that is in them.
