Fancy Monkeys

On this special That Scruffy Post Show Kanen sits down with Stu Maschwitz and Merlin Mann on their second visit to the show! They discuss delegation, dealing with email and to do lists, assistants, and working hard to make being lazy possible. Does it get better than that?

The Song

This episode features the song "The Scruffy Thinking Show" by Andrew Ferris. You should check out his website for more information.


There will be a live That Post Show at NAB, on Wednesday April 10th at 5:30 PM on the main Autodesk Stage. We will be taking audience questions and bringing a few people on-stage. Guests to be announced.

We've launched the Kickstarter campaign for Hero Punk! Support us today so we can finish this film and get it out to the world.

The takeaway from this episode is to quit thinking you are smarter than your lizard brain. You're not. And Merlin is never busy, just time constrained.
