TMN Podcast #1 – iPhone X Review

I have been asked for a long time about starting a Time Management Ninja podcast.

This past weekend, I recorded a first episode with my friend Ken.

It is a casual chat about the new iPhone X. We are both die-hard Apple users, so if you want to hear some details about FaceID, the new screen, and even the UI tweaks then take a listen.

I am using Anchor.fm for my podcasting platform. It is unique in that not only can I publish podcast episodes, but you as listeners can actually “call in” and leave messages and questions to my channel.

Check out my TMN channel here.

Download the Anchor.fm app for your phone and you will be able to listen to my TMN postings. Today, is all about the iPhone X, but future episodes will be about other productivity topics including: time management, organization, and goal planning.

You can also add the podcast to your traditional podcast apps. The podcast episodes will be listed in the traditional iTunes and Google Play directories.
