Posted November 09, 2018 07:10:52When you start reading something for the first time, you don’t know what it’s about, or how much to expect from it.
You might find yourself with a bit of a blank slate, unsure if the person talking to you is actually a journalist or just a cranky crank.
That’s what happens to people who spend a lot of time reading and thinking about the things that are most important to them, and who are constantly working to understand the world around them.
And what they learn, sometimes to the point of obsession, can sometimes be difficult to translate into a coherent narrative.
That was a theme that ran through many of the podcast conversations that took place this week at a conference in London.
The idea was to put the intellectual resources of people like me on a podcast that will teach us what it takes to succeed in the world of science and technology.
The problem with podcasts, as with most new ideas, is that they don’t have the ability to help people understand themselves, or to help us understand our own limitations.
But I found myself thinking about it a lot more as I was listening to this week’s discussions, as well as watching the video clips that accompanied them.
The basic problem with the format is that you don’ know the people talking, or what they’re going to talk about.
This is a problem that seems to exist in virtually every new product or idea, whether it’s a video game, a book, a movie, a new technology, or even an academic paper.
The only way to truly grasp a person’s thought process is to talk to them directly, and that requires having a conversation with them, even if you don”t know their name or what their job title is.
I wanted to see if podcasts could help people learn about themselves in a way that wasn’t just a bunch of self-help advice, or a book with tons of pictures and diagrams.
So I decided to make a podcast.
I began with a few basic rules, such as having a simple premise, and then moving on to some deeper questions that I felt were important to address.
The first of these questions is what I called the “what are you doing now” question.
This was something that I wanted to ask of people who are not scientists or engineers, but are interested in the kinds of things I was interested in.
That led me to a discussion about whether it was possible to make podcasts about what it means to be an intelligent person.
In the last decade, scientists and engineers have been doing a lot to understand and explain how the human mind works, and it’s becoming clear that the tools that we have to understand this are very powerful.
But to really understand the mind, we need to know a lot about how our brains function.
The second question was about the “why?” of the conversation.
I thought that was something I wanted people to ask themselves, too, but I didn”t have the time or inclination to make one.
In fact, I was a little worried that if I didn’t make one, the conversation would fall apart.
What I ended up with is a very simple premise that, when you’re listening to a podcast, you are not just hearing the person talk, but you are also hearing the thought process of that person, and the way they perceive the world.
The result is that your conversation with the person you’re talking to is a conversation about the world you are hearing.
And the final question is what happens when we stop listening?
That is, what happens if you stop listening to the podcast, or stop reading it, or start reading it again?
I wanted this podcast to be about learning, and so I started by asking people to write down some thoughts they had for me about what makes a person a good scientist, and what makes someone a good engineer.
The questions ranged from “How do you get good at something if you never learn anything?” to “How much is too much?” to more personal questions like “How does a person develop the skills that they need to succeed?”
It was the most personal conversation I had had so far, and I really wanted to know what people were thinking, and whether or not they were right.
That’s the reason I set up a group of five people and invited them to write about their own experiences with learning and motivation.
The results were surprising, and in some cases surprising funny.
I also learned a lot.
Most of the people I interviewed told me they wanted to share their story in a podcast because it was something they were struggling with in real life, and they felt that sharing it would help others who were struggling as well.
The podcasts that I’ve produced have been popular and well received, and now I’m hoping to make another podcast in the near future.
In the meantime, I’ll be sharing with you what I learned from these conversations.
