    727 - Amanda Ripley: What kind of people survives disaster? Are you one of them?

    727 - Amanda Ripley: What kind of people survives disaster? Are you one of them?

    Do you know that people that escaped the world trade center during 9/11, sat at their cubicle on average for at least full 6 minutes after the building was hit! The reason being, when you're in the moment, your brain tried to "normalize" the situation, and refused to believe some disaster has happened! 

    In this episode, I once again have Amanda Ripley, American Journalist, and Author, on to talk about one of her older books, The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why. We breakdown the 9/11 stories, what are the trait of the people that can "function" during a disaster and intense situation, also what can we do to prepare ourselves for said situation.

    Facts Don't Matter! Over the past year, people are either on this side or another, and they're so into their own beliefs, it's almost impossible to have a reasonable and proper conversation with either side! Do you remember all the impossible conversations that you had with your family or friends? It's always unproductive and doesn't lead anywhere!

    In this episode, I have Peter Boghossian, an American philosopher, pedagogist, and author, on to talk about the techniques of talking to people that he described in his book, How to Have Impossible Conversations: A Very Practical Guide.

Best Interviews

I love how free-flowing each conversation is and yet how much info is divulged!

My Favorite Podcast

This is by far my favorite podcast. The amount of work/research James does to prepare for each episode is so evident in the questions he asks his guests. And you can tell the guests are impressed as well. James listens to what the guests are saying, but more importantly- he listens to what isn’t being said. Each episode is packed with so much value. Cannot recommend enough. Craig S.
