Is it Friday already? I cannot believe how fast things went this week. I feel like I *just* now wrote the K-drama recommendations for Brian. Any of you like any of those? Did you try any of them/ let me know. Just respond tot he email! I’d love to hear from you.
This afternoon I recorded the fourth episode of a new podcast that I’m nervous and excited about. It looks like we’ll be able to start publishing episodes on June 23rd, if all goes well.
It’s called “A Word with Tom Merritt.” (Hat tip to Justin Robert Young for the name). It’s basically me hosting a talk show. But I’m trying to focus on HOW we think about things not WHAT to think. So many of my shows are exploring the what. DTNS for example is trying to help us understand. There’s a big place for those kinds of shows and they’re great.
But I don’t know if there are enough people talking about how the average individual copes with all that info about there. Rather than telling you the research and the “what” I wanted to talk about the how. How do you decide what info to trust? How do you decide what your opinions even are?
So A Word will start with one word to give the conversation a launching point for our conversation and we just talk about things from there.
So far I’ve got Andrew Heaton, talking about Tribalism, Dr. David Brodbeck talking about Free Will, Lamarr Wilson talking about Creator, and Annalee Newitz talking about Categories.
These are smart people having thoughtful conversations that I hope you enjoy. I’ll keep you posted. And if you have ideas for people you’d like to hear me talk to, let me know!
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend.
