This is Episode 300 of The Productivity Show, and we thought we’d celebrate by turning the show over to you!
This is our first Q&A episode of the show, and we invited listeners of the podcast, readers of the Asian Efficiency blog, and our followers on Social media to ask us anything.
There are questions about productivity, behind the scenes questions about the podcast, our setups, and a whole lot more.
