I’ve always been a fan of the article / story by A. J. Jacobs “My Outsourced Life” for Esquire Magazine.  It is one thing to read about someones experiences, but hearing the story “first hand” in front of an audience is something entirely different (read better).   Listening to him tell the story through recorded audio was a blast!

It was also nice to hear what happened past the original article.  He also touches on some of the points discussed in some of the comments on this site including the effect of outsourcing work from the US to other countries.

Give a listen to the whole recording below.   (Note, it’s about 15 minutes long and contains some strong language)

The audio can be found here.

    AJ Jacobs is the man! I have been outsourcing work-related tasks for a while now for my business but I can’t believe the things you can outsource these days. Just last week I read a TechCrunch article about VirtualDatingAssistants.com, a company that lets you outsource your online dating. Unbelievable…
