Why I like: Host Alie Ward talks with professional -ologists about their respective fields. These range from specific animal-ologists to Zymology (Beer) to Thanatology (Death & Dying)! Most episodes, I have no knowledge prior to hitting play but at the conclusion, I find myself with new tidbits into studies of all sorts of things I would have never thought to look further into myself. It is a light-hearted podcast meant to make you laugh, learn, and explore!
Why I Like: This book made me think, question how I think, and how I accept/learn different information. Rosling identifies ten instincts that contribute to a general tendency to misinterpret the condition of the world and its people consistently and unknowingly. The book showcases how these instincts are hard-wired into human brains, what the instincts were used for during primitive days, and how they are still useful if we retrain our minds using humility and curiosity. Each instinct is broken down to easily understand how to view the world from facts and less from emotions. Using stories to portray how factful understanding of the world can lead to progress towards approaching issues with a thoughtful assessment of facts and informed choices about what to believe in order to determine what does warrant concern.
Why I liked: Extremely moving book as Stevenson writes through their own experience as a legal advocate for marginalized people who have been falsely convicted or harshly sentenced. I appreciated how eloquently historical context and his own reflections on the American criminal justice and prison systems were balanced. It leaves readers with the conclusion that empathy and mercy should be sought over condemnation and punishment.
