For years, I’ve kept a list of dream guests for this show. And as long as that list has existed, Ted Chiang has been atop it.
Chiang is a science fiction writer. But that undersells him. He has released two short story collections over 20 years — 2002’s “Stories of Your Life and Others” and 2019’s “Exhalation.” Those stories have won more awards than I can list, and one of them was turned into the film “Arrival.” They are remarkable pieces of work: Each is built around a profound scientific, philosophical or religious idea, and then the story or the story structure is shaped to represent that idea. They are wonders of precision and craft. But unlike a lot of science fiction, they are never cold. Chiang’s work is deeply, irrepressibly humane.
I’ve always wondered about the mind that would create Chiang’s stories. And in this conversation I got to watch it in action. Chiang doesn’t like to talk about himself. But he does like to talk about ideas. And so we do: We discuss the difference between magic and technology, why superheroes fight crime but ignore injustice, what it would do to the human psyche if we knew the future is fixed, whether free will exists, whether we’d want to know the exact date of our deaths, why Chiang f…

During the 20th century, the midlife crisis became a fashionable means of describing feelings of disillusionment with work, disenchantment with relationships, detachment from family responsibilities, and the growing fear of personal death that began to haunt those beyond the age of forty.
Coined in 1965, the term ‘midlife crisis’ is often used as satire in popular culture, with numerous examples of stereotypical depictions of rebellion and infidelity. It has been a popular focus of research seeking to explain why and how middle age presents particular social, physiological and emotional challenges.
In this lecture, Professor Mark Jackson, winner of the 2018 Wilkins-Bernal-Medawar Medal, explores a rich range of historical sources to argue that the midlife crisis emerged as a result of demographic changes, new biological accounts of ageing, and deepening anxieties about economic decline, political instability, rising level of divorce, and the impact of family breakdown on social cohesion.

In voller Länge! "Das beste Gespräch, das ich je geführt habe." (G. Gaus) WITH ENGL. SUBTITLES HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsoImQfVsO4. Das legendäre Interview mit Günter Gaus.

Our good friend Noah Kagan recently published a video that caught our attention. Noah is the founder of AppSumo.com, and his YouTube channel has been one of our favorite destinations as of late for thoughtful content about entrepreneurship and creating wealth. That video was called 10 Surprising Things About My Richest Friends, and in it, Noah outlined some specific habits that he has seen time and time again among the wealthiest people in his social circle. We were so enthralled by some of the unorthodox ideas that he presented in that list, that we knew we had to talk to Noah to dig a bit deeper into what he had learned. In today’s episode, Noah joins us to discuss the types of habits that the super-wealthy have cultivated, how people become wealthy in the first place, and what we can do to emulate some of these behaviors ourselves.
