Welcome new listeners! In this episode, we catch up with Joel’s writing project (it’s done! well… the first draft is, anyway). We also answer a question (sent in by our audio editor) on whether or not the iPad means the death of the desktop computer.
Welcome MBMBaM fans!
Hey everyone! You’re probably here because you heard the McElroys talk about us on My Brother, My Brother and Me, because we paid them to do that.
Are you interested in learning more about how to use the Internet to market your small business, or another project? Please subscribe!
Looking for a place to start? Here are two of our favorite episodes to give you a taste of what we’re all about:
Episode 18: Managing Employees
Managing employees is a constant challenge, and there are tons of different theories and philosophies about doing it well. Chris and Joel share their different experiences (Chris runs a design company and employs freelancers and Joel leads an in-office team of writers) and give you advice about managing your team and helping them succeed.
Episode 20: It’s Christmas!
Our first Christmas special! Complete with holiday-themed music and bad puns. In this episode, Chris and Joel talk about the importance of writing
good well and where to go for help.
We hope you enjoy our show! We’re huge fans of MBMBaM, so we’re thrilled that you’ve decided to come give us a listen.
Episode 24: #BossesSuck
(Sorry for the audio issues on this one! We had a really bad Skype connection) Joel and Chris discuss building and working with teams, and all the things that can make you a leader instead of a manager. Also discussed: how working with remote teams are different from in-the-office teams, how Joel buys his team with drink and gifts (kidding), and other related topics.
It’s a dry episode, but we’ll make it up to you next week.

Episode 23: Facebook’s Foggy Future
This week we answer a listener’s question about the future of Facebook, give very vague predictions about the future of social media in general, banter a lot, and ignore Joel.
Also, please rate us on iTunes! It’s the best way to get people to listen (other than spamming your friends with the link).
