On this week's episode of The Freenoter, Tom and Tamsen tease out the goal (yes, singular) of a great Freenote, and how to get clarity on a practical outcome from any talk you give. They also examine the three broad types of talk to achieve that goal, celebrate the "original" Freenoter, and ring in Winter in the most appropriate means possible--a craft cocktail designed for the season.
