  • Podcast Team Building in Cabo Verde February 27, 2019 I always call it a team building, but the truth is, it is just a vacation. A working vacation. Me and Mike both love to travel (that is why we are working hard on becoming independent, if you’re new around here) and we love to work on things that we are passionate about. So whenever we travel together, we try to spend as much time as possible working on the podcast and other creative projects. This January we set off ...
  • Season 2 kick-off! February 21, 2019 A few days back Mike & I have kicked-off Season 2 of our podcast! We are so excited to bring you new stories, new segments and mainly – new guests. We took a little break, recorded a bunch of great interviews, and talked to many amazing freelancers about what they do and how they started their journey. As we already mentioned in episode 10, we enjoy structured podcasts. And since the new episodes are mostly interviews with other freelancers, we still ...
  • What we learned during season 1 of our podcast November 11, 2018 It has been almost a year since we’ve released our first episode. A lot has changed since then. We’ve learned how to speak into the microphone, it became less awkward to communicate in English between Mike and I, and we’ve also learned a bit of how to work with sound. Season 1 of our podcast has mapped our life starting the summer of 2017 up until the summer of 2018. Both of us went through many changes and our ideas and ...
  • What does Freelensers mean? May 7, 2018 We decided to make our podcast official and release a video announcing it to the world! Also you will learn how we came up with the name Freelensers. Script Mike: Hi everyone, I want to announce my new project I’m working on with my best friend. Adel: Hi, I’m Adel. I’m a wedding photographer or, as I like to call it, a love photographer. Mike: I shoot videos on the side. It’s not always easy to find enough clients, but I hope to turn this ...
  • [UPD 02/2019] Bonus: Metro around the World April 13, 2018 Call it subway, underground, metro or tube, you cannot put out Mike’s excitement for the topic.

So tag along as currently we’ve visited more than 20 of them and we want to share our thoughts on the topic. Listen to “Bonus: Metro around the World” on Spreaker.

  • Mike’s Top Five Podcasts March 7, 2018 A few moons back Adela made a list of her favourite podcasts and now it’s my turn. It’s kind of difficult for me to pick just 5 that I like as podcasts are hands down my most frequent way of consuming content and ear canals are the way to my brain. I don’t watch TV, I don’t read news so podcasts are where most of my information comes from. Let’s narrow it down to my top 5 productivity podcasts. 1) Cortex I ...
  • Why did we start podcasting? January 7, 2018 I think this was actually Mike’s idea at the very beginning. I am not sure how or why he thought of this, but one day he just called me from Mexico (or was it Boston, Mike? I can’t remember!) and said We should start a podcast, what do you think? And so we did. I was a bit shocked by this idea at first, but then I though that I should try it. The idea of doing a podcast was something so far ...
  • Adela’s Top Five Podcasts December 29, 2017 In today’s blogpost, I want to introduce you to the top five podcasts that I listen to. I left the ones about business and freelancing to Mike, since we listen to the same ones more or less, and focused on a broader variety of themes and topics. Podcasts can cover just about anything and that is why I enjoy them and why I think everyone should start listening to them. Focusing on music and lifestyle, here are my top 5 ...
  • All About Podcasting December 21, 2017 The easiest way to describe a podcast is to compare it to a radio show. Both is an audio-based content that you can listen to, except radio is broadcasted live and a podcast is available on the internet anytime. Once a radio show gets its own online archive, then it essentially becomes a podcast – an episodic audio content available for streaming or to be downloaded from the internet. Once a podcast episode is released from that moment on you can access ...
