How did you find Free Agents?


#1

So, how did you find (and end up listening to) Free Agents?

I found the show because I was browsing the relay site and saw the show, listened to a couple of episodes and the rest is history. :wink:


#2

I started listening at the beginning, I think finding it from cross-promotion from Jason and David’s other podcasts. I wasn’t sure it’d stick in my playlist, but 49 episodes later, still one of my favorite shows to listen to!


#3

Through MPU. Listener from the beginning. Looking forward to David’s reveal of his new co-host!


#4

Isn’t the reveal already in the pinned about post for this category?


#5

I think I heard David mention it on MPU, so thought “well, I used to be a free(ish) agent, I’ll give it a listen!” - and even though I now have a full time job I’m still listening and learning a lot :slight_smile:


#6

From MPU. I’ve always viewed graduate school as being a ‘free agent’ sort of gig. Have listened from ep. 1!


#7

This is indeed strange. And spoiled the surprise a little. But I like the choice. Kim Schmitz is a super interesting guy. :slight_smile:


#8

I will miss Jason, but I’m also looking forward to the reveal.


#9

Watching CGP Grey on YouTube begat listening to Hello Internet begat listening to Cortex begat listening to Free Agents. I’ve been self-employed for nearly 10 years, and I’m still learning how this all works!


#10

A friend of mine at work recommended it too me, because he knew I was unhappy and planning to leave to go out on my own. Free agents has been a great tool to help me reflect on my business.


#11

We are happy to help you… Even just a little bit. I’m looking forward to the new shows. The first show with the new house drops Tuesday.


#12

I’ve been listening for about 3 months or so now. I’m noodling over the idea of becoming a Free Agent, and the discussions have been really helpful! Thank you.


#13

I sort of stalk Jason as a part-time hobby, so I knew about it right away, but it’s possible the first mention was on MPU?

:grinning:


#14

I found it through Relay - same way as I found MPU.


#15

From MPU.
For the story, the podcast started few months after I went freelance.
I was so happy (and still is) to hear about all these subjects/problematics we are facing. It really helps.


#16

Heard about it on MPU, and I was preparing the next stage in my career, and FA helped me cross that line.


#17

Since both David Sparks and Jason Snell mentioned it, I just had to listen.
(Having been a Free Agent myself for 13 years now … and counting.)


#18

Through MPU. I have found it invaluable for planning a transition to doing my own thing after early retirement rolls around, which won’t be much longer.


#19

I took a similar path, and actually found MPU from free agents


#20

I’m a long-time Mac Power Users listener. So when David announced he was starting another podcast I had to give it a try.
