How to Make Better Decisions
How do you make a smart and logical decision when you don’t have all the facts – and probably never will? When and how do you decide to go against consensus opinion? Decision strategist and professional poker player Annie Duke joins the podcast to share frameworks for better decision-making.
Learning from Open Source Communities
While “community” is a common buzzword in everything from web3 to SaaS, community has long played a key role in the modern open source movement. Author Nadia Asparouhova joins to talk about her book, Working in Public: The Making and Maintenance of Open Source Software, from Stripe Press.
Love Web3 related content!
Really enjoy the guests on the show!
The style of editing is a little unnatural and anxious though.
A dirty diamond in the rought
The hosts and guests are all smart and interesting people but somehow it feels like there’s a lot of bloat, forced and ultimately provides little value.
Great show, fascinating guests! 💥
