You never know who’s listening
Something really, really cool happened in slow motion over the past few weeks.
- On July 22, Lisa and I published a money-focused episode of our podcast, Should We
- The show notes for the episode featured a budgeting / financial awareness tool we’d both taken for a spin—Tiller
- On August 6, the Tiller team caught wind of the episode and wrote some lovely tweets quoting it
- One of Tiller’s tweets mentioned one of the authors we talked about on the episode—Carl Richards, author of The One-Page Financial Plan and the Sketch Guy column for the New York Times
- Carl saw the tweet, favorited it, and retweeted it. Lisa and I noticed and thought that would be the end of it, BUT NO:
- Today—August 10—we received A VIDEO REPLY from Carl, who listened to our episode while on a trail run
- Lisa and I freaked out, tried to decide what to do, and end up meeting at my house today to record and post a video in return
This is the first “cool internet thing” that’s happened to me in a while, and it really restored my faith in the ripple effects of putting stuff out there. You never know who’s listening.
