Saturday Morning Media: Tom Morgan On The Mystery Of Curiosity

Tom Morgan’s presentation, “The Mystery of Curiosity” is a thought, turned into a conversation, aided by research, shaped by more conversations, and finally brought to life as a presentation. I’ve been waiting for him to pull this together for a minute, and by George, he’s got it.  Tom says we’re facing “The Four Horsemen of … Continue reading Saturday Morning Media: Tom Morgan On The Mystery Of Curiosity

Saturday Morning Media: Teaching Logic Via The Viral JK Rowling Bias Teacher

The best way to teach critical thinking is to think critically through stuff you care about.  A student asks a teacher about JK Rowling being transphobic, pointing out how the author’s had a controversial past and said some bad stuff on Twitter. “Do you still like her work despite her bigoted opinions?” The teacher composes … Continue reading Saturday Morning Media: Teaching Logic Via The Viral JK Rowling Bias Teacher

Podcast Of The Week: McRaney Thinks Even Billionaires Aren’t So Smart

David McRaney’s a household name around here. I’ve got several years worth of regular check-ins on his work if you're interested. But if you don’t know him, this is easily one of the best interviews I’ve ever heard him give.  Bogumil Baranowski had McRaney on the Talking Billions podcast - so of course the financial … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: McRaney Thinks Even Billionaires Aren’t So Smart

Saturday Morning Media: Dick Cavett’s Oscar Peterson Interview

Entertainment value AND educational value is determined by presentation.  Here’s Dick Cavett interviewing one of the all-time great jazz pianists, Oscar Peterson, back in 1979.  They start with Peterson playing some music.

Podcast Of The Week: Rubin on Huberman

All you Andrew Huberman superfans, I can finally say yes, I listened to the Rick Rubin interview.  Oh, and you were right. It was really good. Also amusing to imagine Huberman and Ferriss trading, “When I’m in the pool doing exercises and listening to podcasts with Ricky, he always tells me to…” I’m only a … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Rubin on Huberman

Podcast Of The Week: LL Cool J Affirmations

LL Cool J did an interview on Questlove Supreme. LL’s one of those rappers, he’s been there since the beginning, he’s never faded away, and he just - sticks in your head.  He’s done more firsts than people give him credit for.  Not out of spite, but probably because folks don’t know. That’s what happens … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: LL Cool J Affirmations

Saturday Morning Media: Charlie Munger At His Funniest

Of all the Charlie Munger memorials, and there are deservedly many, the rabbit hole I fell the farthest down was these compilation videos of his jokes.  Not because they’re just haha funny. Many are A-grade old man humor. But because many of them cut to profound truths.  One of my favorites from this round of … Continue reading Saturday Morning Media: Charlie Munger At His Funniest
