How amazing is it that we live in a world where there are so many ‘free’ things all around us? And how unfortunate is it, that we don’t even see these ‘free’ resources because we’re so used to purchasing and consumption- we don’t even think to make use of them. Our technology and culture steers us in the direction to spend. Chances are there are times when we’re not taking advantage of this ‘free’ stuff and we’re overspending because maybe we haven’t thought about it recently or there are some things you’re not even aware of yet. Putting these resources to use will make us smarter, save us money, and will overall lead to a healthier and more balanced life.
And some links to additional things we mention in this episode:
- Free online courses at Coursera and Udemy
- Links to the different library apps: Overdrive, Libby, and Hoopla
- That NYT article discussing good health with access to parks
- National Park free entrance days
- They’re not everywhere, but see if there is a ToolBank in your city
During this episode we shared a Sticky Hands IPA by Block 15 Brewing Company which you can find and learn all about on Untappd. A special thanks to Dale in Portland for bringing down this IPA for us to have on the show (even after our Atlanta United gave his team a walloping at the MLS Cup)! And if you enjoyed this episode, be sure to subscribe and give us a quick review in Apple Podcasts, Castbox, or wherever you get your podcasts- we’d love to hear from you.
Best friends out!
My podcast app won’t let me leave feedback! I just discovered your podcast and was thrilled you spent time talking about the library resources. As a library employee, one resource people don’t understand the potential of is Book-A-Librarian. This is a one-on-one appointment with a library employee to teach you how to use our databases, research items for you, download our apps, etc. We have help for small businesses too with databases, etc. Thank you so much for your work you guys!
I am looking for the info you discussed about free college courses or lectures. Don’t see it mentioned in the episode summary. I just found your podcast recently and have been listening to some of te older episodes. Keep up the great work!
Hey Brian! I’ve updated links in the show notes above- thanks for listening!
