Pearls of wisdom

Not much for self help books this podcast connects a lot of dots on life’s trajectory.

Not too long and not too short

Genuine nonsense

I understand that Jen and Pete are trying to be profound, but it’s cliche ridden dross. As long as people realise that they’re listening to under qualified people in most fields, that’s fine. But these are incoherent conversations at best, not educational learnings. If they were educational, you’d expect both to have proper degrees and not online “alternative” masters of business degrees. Proceed with caution.
