Value the Ideas of Others

Erich shares some ideas that he's been working through. In the last few weeks, the weight of the problems and chaos of the world almost feel insurmountable. At its worst, how can one person possibly make a real difference in the chaos? On a more optimistic note, we can anchor in what we can control. Erich believes that starts with this, "You don't know what you don't know." What this means is that you have actively fill in the gaps by exposing yourself to people, places, and things that you've never experienced. One of the most beautiful gifts this podcast has given him is the ability to empathize with people who think differently. It doesn't mean you have to agree with everyone one, but you can at least make an effort to say, "I can see why you see or believe that." We need to end thinking in tribal terms when the world is more connected than ever, and yet in the United States, we can't even understand where our neighbor. In the end, it about being curious enough to see where others are coming from. We can make happen that one conversation at a time. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/feedingcuriosity/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/feedingcuriosity/support

Between Order and Chaos

I am joined with my friend, Joe Jackowski, and this conversation took place after about four hours of conversation, unpacking everything that has happened in the wake of George Floyd's murder. This is the first time that we can look at and take stock of the events of the protests, riots, and the surrounding reactions, in the world. This was not to try and pose any solutions, but realistically this conversation was sense-making for myself and Joe. We do our best to try and layout the land of the current situation, which in turn looking at the extremes of this situation and asking. What if; how bad could this get? And now roughly a week later, do I think it's getting worse? No. I don't think it's getting worse. So I'm hopeful in that sense. But I do believe that the broader philosophical discussions about the direction of this country are speaking between order and chaos. This was our honest attempt at the layout of the reactions on both sides. As I said at the end of this conversatio...

The Last Dance: MJ vs. LeBron and How Sport Changes the World

A conversation about the ESPN documentary series The Last Dance: from there, we transition to a broader discussion about basketball and legacy of Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan shaped the modern perception of basketball players. We talk about how sport can change the world. Sport provides a blueprint for pushing yourself to do the impossible. In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls allowed a film crew to follow them as they went for their sixth NBA title in eight seasons. That resulted in a stunning portrait of one of the sport's most iconic athletes and a celebrated team. "The Last Dance" follows the Bulls' 1997-98 season from start to finish, while also covering the rest of the chapters in Jordan's remarkable career. The 10-part docuseries follows the Jordan timeline from when he was an emerging star on his high school team to becoming a worldwide marketing force and cultural figure. The series takes its name from a phrase coined by then-Bulls coach Phil Jackson,...

Instead of doing the typical. Interviewing Q and a or something like that. That didn't feel like it captured the spirit of what Feeding Curiosity has been for me and what it has evolved into over the last two years. And the last a hundred plus episodes.
