In today’s episode, we’re going to be diving into the world of Personal Knowledge Management

This is a topic that is super-hot right now, and linked editing tools like Obsidian, Roam, and others are having an impact in a way that I haven’t seen since the early Evernote days.

There’s definitely something big going on here, and we’ve wanted to do an episode on it for quite some time – and there’s no one better to talk about it than Nick.
