The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 20

Digital devices/services and your analogue planner

The Plannerverse Gods have had mercy on the Gruesome Twosome. We’ve made it to Episode 20!

In this episode we tackle the never ending barrage of digital devices that are constantly demanding our attention. Steve acts as the Ringleader, whipping these devices into byte-size (get it? get it?!) thoughtlets, whilst Karine insists on using them along with our analogue planners.

Tune in to see who wins the logical arguments of letting robots tell us what to do with our lives.
