    How To Unshackle Your Memory (interview with Nelson Dellis, 4 time US memory champion)

    How To Unshackle Your Memory (interview with Nelson Dellis, 4 time US memory champion)

    Think some people are born with good memories?
    Think exponential gains in memory capacity, if even possible at all, would take years to develop? 
    Perhaps no domain better illustrates the latent potential inside each brain, or challenges conventional ideas about innate intelligence, better than that of the world of competitive memory. 
    In this episode, we explore this topic with 4 time US Memory Champion Nelson Dellis.

Worth the time

There are a lot of podcasts out there. This one is worth your time and filtering out others to become a regular listener. Dr. Turknett is a natural education. So glad I found this show.

Intriguing topics; shallow content

Listened to the mismatch episode and the optimization episode with Dr. wood. The mismatch episode was just extremely repetitive and he never gave specific information how to actually minimize mismatch(while stating everyone should experience the benefits), and ultimately seemed like a 30 minute ad for his book/services. However, in the optimization episode, Dr Wood was the only who actually gave insight on what specifics are key to brain optimization.
