How to read faster – I’m finding time to read is getting less and less for me nowadays, so I’ve gone back to a Tim Ferriss blog on how to read faster. It requires some specific practice and I’m not finished yet, though the results so far have been pretty amazing! Try it yourself and you’ll see what I mean.
Podcast I’m listening to – To live and die in LA – This was shared in Tim Ferriss’ own Friday email and I got hooked instantly. There are mixed feelings from many listeners (15 million and counting), with some saying it’s amazing and others really disliking it. I’m enjoying it so far and have made it to episode 7 still keen to listen to more. If you’re interested in true crime this short form podcast might be right up your street.

Apparently it’s for our own benefit, and the Telegraph newspaper went on a discovery of it’s own to find out (click the link to read).
