    Ep.301 Time Dilation and the Mind With Iain McGilchrist

    We are living in a left hemisphere world disconnected from Nature. Have we modeled ourselves into a corner and thought ourselves clever enough to keep the chaos at bay? Join us as we interview the incredible Iain McGilchrist to discuss his fantastic book The Master and His Emissary and the lessons, we can apply to make sense of our world.  Dr. McGilchrist now resides on the Isle of Skye, off the coast of North West Scotland, where he continues to write and is currently working on his next book The Matter With Things, a book of epistemology and metaphysics.

cllawson ,

a Black Swan in the best sense

This might be one of the most underrated and overlooked podcasts, a podcast you would never expect to exist

A wide range of relevant topics are discussed as expert guests share their knowledge and provide actionable information.

Ase Deliri, the primary host, demonstrates a cogent thought process that brings clarity to these conversations- often revealing valuable insight- while weaving a remarkable meta narrative across multiple episodes.

This podcast is honestly better than the more recognized, but similar, podcasts offered by Tim Ferris and others. I’ve yet to hear an advertisement or anything resembling self-promotion.

Likewise, many of the guests here are not as well known as the guests that might appear on Ferris or Rogan- but they are no less qualified in their expertise. Their lack of celebrity is likely due to the fact that they aren’t selling anything- just sharing knowledge through conversations.

Multi-disciplinary look into risk and complex systems

A great podcast to get perspectives from people dealing with real world issues. Not a big emphasis on the purely theoretical.

The podcast I've been waiting for!!

Off to a great start w Joe Norman, looking forward to seeing what else Ase has in store!
