    Annie Murphy Paul on The Extended Mind

    Annie Murphy Paul on The Extended Mind

    Annie Murphy Paul is an acclaimed science writer. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Scientific American, Slate, Time magazine, The Best American Science Writing, and other publications.
    Our conversation focuses on the subject of her latest book, The Extended Mind, which is about how human cognition relies on our bodies, other people, and the material world. I loved this book and was thrilled to ask Annie about how this line of thinking plays out in the context of our heavily digitized lives.

A backstage pass to leaders in design

I’m so happy to find a podcast hosted by Jorge Arango. I have followed his work for years and he’s curating some of the best thought leadership in the design space here.

Enriching Information

One of the few podcasts I listen to. The conversations are meaningful and informative. I think about information and design and Jorge Arango’s conversations help me stay informed of interesting things in the field related to what I care about and work on. The transcripts and organization of the conversations are clear and immensely helpful. If you interested in user experience (UX), service design, information architecture (IA), metadata, and how we use information with technology, I recommend listening.
