A published only one post this month, but I've started a new job. It will take me some time to accommodate. Fortunately, I had a lot more time to listen to podcasts so I have a couple of good recommendations at the end.

Books I'm reading (both are in progress) #
I'm at 79%, but it's so good that I recommend it already.

I can recommend an episode of NPR Hidden Brain podcast Screaming Into The Void: How Outrage Is Hijacking Our Culture, And Our Minds
Relates to many of the same ideas mentioned in the The Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt., but with a deeper investigation of outrage.
I'm a great fan of Hardcore History by Dan Carlin. Give it a try.
Great summary of all the controversies around the "Marshmallow Test". I can recommend if you feel strongly about delayed gratification or grit.
