    The making of a magnificent memory

    One spring weekend a few years back, around 15 people gathered in a south Melbourne office space.

    They were mostly neuroscience and maths types and there for something super niche and somewhat nerdy — the Australian Memory Championships.

    Anastasia Woolmer was a first time competitor — but she’d go on to win.

    On All in the Mind, she explains the techniques memory athletes use, and how you can apply them to everyday life.

    How many times in a day are you doing just one thing?

    Or is it more common that you’re multitasking – maybe texting and walking? Reading while listening to music?
