I posted that I was going to be on the radio last minute, so here's the audio for those of you who didn't have the chance to listen in.
But first, a big thank you to everyone there, especially Jordan Harbinger and Josh. I had a great time being on the show. You can check out their sites at:
I also did an interview for Pickup Podcast a while back that you can listen to here: Herbal on Pickup Podcast.
BTW, I said I dropped out of high school on the show, but I meant to say college.
Even if you're not into pickup, you'll probably enjoy the show. We talk a lot about Life Nomadic, The Pool Story, Annie, The France Tunnel story, and a bunch of other stuff.
I really enjoyed this podcast. The first link is wrong though, should be theartofcharm.com. The other one was about a book on being a model!
You mention the Radio Tower in the interview, which is in MHCY as well.
I tried finding a radio tower to climb around town but none of them have ladders or anything to climb up! I also read that the radio frequencies are so strong they can hurt you. Any truth to this?
I wish there was something cool like that around here.
I actually found this on boingboing.net. I shouldn't even post their name since they're one of the few big aggregating sites that has never run one of my articles. But hey, when they've got a good article, they've got a good article.
They posted This MP3 about how to always do the right thing. It's brilliant. I've actually been wanting to write a post to that effect, but the speaker, Dan Gilbert, did a much better job than I would have.
The essence of the speech is that EV is king. EV is expected value, a term used commonly in the gambling world. I would explain what it is, but if you listen to the lecture you will have a better understanding and then I won't have to type as much.
Using the iPhone's Podcast app, I'm able to listen to thousands of podcasts in the car. It's priceless (and free), and a way to soak up knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have time for.
Some of my favorite podcasts are (links open iTunes):
- This American Life
- WNYC's Radio Lab
- American Public Media's "Marketplace"
Using the iPhone's Podcast app, I'm able to listen to thousands of podcasts in the car. It's priceless (and free), and a way to soak up knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have time for. Some of my favorite podcasts are (links open iTunes): - This American Life - WNYC's Radio Lab - American Public Media's "Marketplace" - CBS' 60 Minutes And the best part is that because the iPhone can play podcasts at 2x speed, and since "60 Minutes" is really just 42 minutes without the ads, that means at 2x I can listen to a full 60 Minutes show in just 30 minutes (interestingly, "2x" is actually 1.5x... I guess 2x sounded better to Apple). Amazing.
