Agent Palmer

Of all things Geek. I am…

If I can do it for me, I can do it for you (What is Experience?)

From the desk of Agent Palmer

I have been out of work. I have been networking and applying and battling depression throughout a pandemic. But I have also maintained this blog and a podcast and kept up to date with digital marketing trends.

And yet, commonly, people I respect ask me “what of this have you done for money?” I’m sick of the sentiment. If a runner runs a few laps on their own because they got to practice early, most coaches will count that. If a musician practices on their own time to get better that’s experience that is important to the craft. There are many other examples of this.

Palmer and Max: An Odd Pairing of Two Old Cats

Max is my friend. It was unforeseen and evolved in a way that has baffled my partner Stef since he took a strong liking to me, especially since she would love to have that connection with him.

How did this happen? I have some ideas, but it’s probably a combination of many things – some are worth sharing while some are still unknown.

Entertainment Listening: Podcast v. Music: Finding Balance

Entertainment Listening: Podcast or Music

It is no secret that I enjoy listening to podcasts. I have written about them, I have reviewed them, I have participated in them, and then I created and continue to publish my own. But I am also a lover of music, which I have also written about, reviewed, and played.

Of late, podcast listening has taken a back burner to music, specifically Bob Dylan, R.E.M., and some curated playlists on Spotify and Amazon Music.
