A show about learning.
Should I Facecam?
I analyze issues related to facecamming.
Rationalism and Convention
I discuss armchair philosophers, being unconventional, and learning from criticism. Topics include therapy, polyamory, non-coercive parenting and social dynamics.
Think about what it means if school is actually a really s****y place. Failing at school doesn't mean you're dumb or a failure. Getting straight A's doesn't mean you're educated or smart.
How People Act
I discuss how people run their lives and why they don't get around to philosophy and some things that can help.
I discuss how to get better at critically analyzing research papers.
Sense of Life, Learning and Practicing
I explain sense of life, then explain how learning works, how the mind is organized, the hierarchy of knowledge, the role of practice, and what that means for changing your sense of life (or changing your emotions or any other intuitive, automatic or second-nature ideas).
