As mentioned in a previous post, Stephen Dubner is an award winning author, as well as the host of the podcast Freakonomics. Angela Duckworth is a founder of the Character Lab, as well as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Wharton.
The podcast was just released recently, so there are only 9 episodes or so so far. Each episode follows a similar theme, with Duckworth and Dubner taking turns asking each other questions and then discussing them. Some of the questions they ask are extremely to hear them discuss, especially since they have done a significant amount of research on them.
For example, some questions that have been asked include “How Much of Our Own Life do We Control?”, “What Does it Mean to Be a Hard Worker?”, etc. You should definitely check out their website to see if there are any episodes you may be interested in.
Each episode is about 30-35 minutes or so, so they are really easily accessible and finish-able. If you are looking for a new podcast to listen to, I would recommend checking out No Stupid Questions (especially if you are a fan of either Dubner, Duckworth, or Freakonomics)!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
