2019 October Update
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.
New posts #
Books I'm reading (both are in progress) #
Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, and Change Your Life through the Power of Storytelling by Matthew Dicks
I'm at 79%, but it's so good that I recommend it already.
Elsewhere on the Web #
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.
Hardcore History 64 – Supernova in the East III
I'm a great fan of Hardcore History by Dan Carlin. Give it a try.
The Ongoing Controversy Over the Marshmallow Test by Erman Misirlisoy, Ph.D.
Great summary of all the controversies around the "Marshmallow Test". I can recommend if you feel strongly about delayed gratification or grit.
