Episode Info

Episode Info: Today's episode takes a short break from the interview setting and I dive into a topic that is really important to me: Meaningful Conversation. I wrote a post about it a while back on my blog The Power of Meaningful Conversation and Drones. In this post I talk about why it's important to have those conversations that make you think about something a little bit longer. The one's where you walk away and wonder, "What did I learn in the last hour?" Sometimes it's not so much what you learn, but how you learn. The questions are as important as the answers because the questions teach you to continue to ask those questions. To push the boundary and continue learning. I talk about the B.S. Report in this episode, which is Bill Simmons' podcast and how I started listening to it, what I've learned from it, and why I think the avenue of conversations is more important than the topic often times. I also talk about a writer whom I'm a big fan of in this episode, Chuck Klosterman. He's the author of books such as Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto, Eating the Dinosaur, and most recently I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains (Real and Imagined). I love the way he tackles questions, the way he asks questions, and the way those questions spark conversations. Here's a link to the episode I'm referring to this week. I highly encourage you to check it out. It will be an hour well spent, I promise.
