This is a useful insight into completing an education based PhD. It reminds me of a chat that I had on Twitter a few years ago with Alec Couros, Steve Wheeler, Ian Guest and Julie Bytheway.

Still not sure I’m any closer though.

Listened Revisionist History Season 3 Episode 2 from Revisionist History
Sometimes proof is just another word for letting people suffer.
Malcolm Gladwell wonders how much ‘proof’ we need in order to do something about CTE, a neurodegenerative disease found in people who have had multiple head injuries. The focus was on Owen Thomas and his suicide in 2010. In regards to the question of breaking point, there was no reference of Aaron Hernandez, whose case involves murder and suicide. I wonder how long until this becomes a case in AFL?
Listened Ep. 87 Jason Louv “A World of Gods and Monsters” from teamhuman.fm

Playing for team human today is author, occult scholar, and wizard Jason Louv. Jason will be helping us see how the intentions we bring into the world of artificial intelligence could set something in motion from which it is hard to return. Jason’s latest book John Dee and the Empire of Angels: Enochian Magick and the Occult Roots of Empire digs deep into the untold and often ignored occult history of Western thinking and empire. On today’s show Jason and Douglas bridge the gap from the Elizabethan esoteric imaginary to the modern day alchemical thinking driving our technologies.

It is often suggested that one of the important things that you can do is take in a breadth of ideas. Douglas Rushkoff and the Team Human podcast never seems to disappoint in giving voice to different people. This episode explores the history associated with magic and the role of experiences and storytelling in relation to all elements of life. As always, I am left wondering about the world in new ways.
