#7. A Tribute to K. Anders Ericsson
We pay tribute to K. Anders Ericsson in today's episode.
He is known by many to be "the expert on expertise."

His four decades worth of research also informed the hugely popular book by Malcolm Gladwell, Outlier. (Though the "10,000hr" rule thing got misrepresented by others).
