A couple of narcissists…
…who think every aspect of their mundane lives need to be recorded, databased, perused, obsessed over and curated. Get over yourselves, guys. Life is short, stop typing and navel gazing. If you think you have any ideas of real importance (which is unlikely) get a notebook and a pen.

Good stuff
David Sparks does it again! I am a long-time listener of one of his other podcasts, MPU. I only recently discovered Focused and I’m really enjoying the thoughtful, well-organized content here.
