Sketch Notes on Seth Godin Interview+Enlarge image

Remember taking notes while listening to teachers, speakers, professors, et al at university or for on-the-job training classes? Well, I do. At best, my notes were a punctilious outline, as stale as that extra challah sitting on the icy snow pack in my front yard waiting for birds to peck at it or, more commonly, a jumbled mess of chicken scratches and sloppy penmanship jumbled with arrows, circles, and underlines. Doug Neill, a self-professed "sketchnoter" from Portland, Oregon, showed me a new way forward for visualizing our own work at On Being.

While listening to Krista Tippett's interview with Seth Godin, Doug did some real-time, visual note taking and created this sketchnote of the conversation. A most delightful and unexpected surprise. Would this be something you, the listener and the reader, might be interested in seeing each week?

Love it

Absolutly!

Yes Yes Yes! Please consider posting Doug's visual notes after each "On Being!" I often urge my colleagues to listen to "On Being" podcasts, and if I had this visual to forward to them, I believe it would help anchor the ideas and increase their eagerness. Thanks for posting!

Loved the show and the Sketchnote. Really helpful, non-linear way we actual perceive the universe.

YES YES YES!! I am doing my own sketch notes for TONS of interviews now. I LOVE it!

Yes! I am a very visual learner and this a great synthesis of the main points of the conversation.

Yes, I've just started doing this myself -- I didn't realize there was a name for it. I love seeing something handwritten on the screen, which I know sounds strange -- but it's somehow so human.

I LOVE HIS SKETCHES...THEY USUALLY DETERMINE WHICH SHOW I WILL LISTEN TO...THANKS FOR DOING THIS!

Please do include more of Dougs sketchnotes.I'm a visual big-picture type and this really enhances the message. Thanks for posting it!
