What is Drexel’s 10,000 Hours Podcast?

How long does it take to become an expert in something? The writer Malcolm Gladwell famously said that it takes someone at least 10,000 hours of practice before they can really claim expertise. Quibble about the exact number of hours all you want, but the point is: it takes a ton of time, energy and passion to master your field. On this podcast, we’re just as interested in the journey as we are in the end result. That means talking not only about our guests’ research (though don’t worry, we learn all about their current interests and projects as well, but about what inspired them to pursue their work and how they got to where they are today. Get ready for childhood stories, college mishaps and first jobs in closet-sized offices.

YES!!!!

This podcast is so enjoyable. It's like sitting in on a conversation with a friend. The questions are so thought provoking and really inspire you to think about your own path, You will also laugh along with Maurice, who is such an easy and comfortable host (you can tell he is just as curious as we are about these people and their journey), as he gets these folks to open up, joke around and also really explore who they are, where they began and how they got to the space and place where they are today. I am an instant fan!
