Episode from the podcastLate Nights with Trav and Los

Tools, Not Rules – a recipe for good collaboration

Released Tuesday, 17th May 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!

Lean heavily on building tools and opportunities for yourself and others, rather than trying to follow a prescription or bounding yourself and others with new rules

Each episode is a test. We learn from each episode and apply the lessons to new episodes. Maybe not in ways that you think, or that you see right away. The last narrated episode was 7 months ago. But that definitely planted the seeds for what I did this last week.

  • Trav thinks it might be about placing tools in the bag to use later on.

  • Sometimes Trav is really interested in a tool, or process and itches to use it. He's been wanting to narrate and episode for a while, so when he had an opportunity, he took it. It was a risk, but we embrace trust and improvisation here.

  • We have built a flexible structure for the show, over time we add tools, not rules

  • Being a good creator is all about sampling from a wide variety of influences and using and mixing those tools.

    • Copy, Combine, Transform.
      • people have said that this last episode was reminiscent of serial, radio lab and a few other podcasts, but no-one mentioned this american life, which i will admit was my biggest influence in structuring the episode.

      • Ira Glass impersonation
