Thank you!

Thank you for opening many minds. My suggestion: please try Vipassana Mediation for 10 Days. Would love to here your feedback when you talk with Jack, Twitter CEO, next time. Stay 🤖 ;)

Finally

The guy interviewed Donald Knuth, that alone “should” deserve 5 stars (see my update below on why that modal showed up). This podcast is what I hoped the world would become with computers and near zero production costs for interviews. That is, in depth and at length discussions about people’s work that isn’t so dumbed down it doesn’t tell you anything. Love love love this show. Thanks Lex!!! Edit: I had dropped some stars because of a bad direction the show took toward the end of the pandemic, but the last 6 interviews seem to be like the old Lex with interesting guests who actually have interesting things to say and aren’t trolls being dressed up as political warriors. Keep it up Lex and thank you!!!

I am smarter now!

I learned more listening to one Lex podcast than in four years of an Ivy League education. Keep it going!
