Amazing

This podcast is amazing. I never would have thought it that way.

Not Your Typical Bumper Sticker Fare

Really well done, Trevor. We just finished our “Learner” book club with a U14 girls’ soccer team I coach.

This was accessible for them, but with enough depth for them to really understand the “why” behind the concepts. Sparked some fantastic conversations.

Can’t wait to see what Learner Lab does next.

Worth every second

Trevor presents the most up-to-date science on skill acquisition and improvement in easy to understand and very practical, applicable ways. Not a surprise since he’s been doing so for a while now, but as pretty much everything he’s put out in the past few years, this is more than worth the time. In fact, one to re-listen a few times
