Episode 9 – The Best Thing You Ever Made

This week, Amy, Jeff, and Bill discuss the best (and worst) things they ever made — and more importantly why. Includes not one, but two mic drops. That’s right — Bill drops the mic, picks it up, and drops it again. That’s hardcore.

  1. I’ve been listening to you guys since Matt Cremona gave you a shout out on WoodTalk. Each episode gets better and better, so this was your best episode yet! Amy mentioned that drawing was good for memory and also stress relief. I can’t draw, but I recently decided to draw 2016 smiles before the end of the year to make this year happier. I found that I can’t help but smile while drawing the smiles every morning. It’s been therapeutic for me and I’m glad to see some science supporting it. Thanks for the links and keep up the great work!
