More on all three below. I rarely cover current events on this podcast, but this is a new experiment.To avoid overwhelm, I do not track the news 24/7 with doom scrolling. Rather, I depend on conversations with my smartest friends to find the signal in the noise. The following conversation with Noah Feldman (@NoahRFeldman) is an example of such a conversation, very similar to what we would have offline, and I wanted to share it with you. I learned a ton and changed my thinking a lot, which I always do.Noah Feldman is a Harvard professor, ethical philosopher and advisor, public intellectual, religious scholar and historian, and author of 10 books, including his latest, The Broken Constitution: Lincoln, Slavery, and the Refounding of America. You can find my interview with him at tim.blog/noah.Noah is the founder of Ethical Compass, which helps clients like Facebook and eBay improve ethical decision-making by creating and implementing new governance solutions. Noah conceived and designed the Facebook Oversight Board and continues to advise Facebook on ethics and governance issues.Feldman is host of the Deep Background podcast, a policy and public affairs columnist for Bloomberg Opinion, and a former contributing writer for The New York Times. He served as senior constitutional advisor to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and subsequently advised members of the Iraqi Governing Council on the drafting of Iraq's interim constitution.He earned his A.B. summa cum laude from Harvard, finishing first in his class. Selected as a Rhodes Scholar, he earned a DPhil from Oxford University, writing his dissertation on Aristotle's Ethics.

In Episode 117, Annie Hartnett, author of Unlikely Animals, shares the intriguing backstory behind her new novel. She is wonderfully candid and shares interesting tidbits from the germ of the idea, through some of the editing process, all the way to the finished book and finding a publisher.  This post contains affiliate links, through which I make a small commission when you make a purchase (at no cost to you!). Highlights How interesting information transitions to the idea to write a book. The importance of voice in her stories. How she infuses comedy into her writing and embraces the potential for silliness. Annie shares the experience of having her second book under her belt and how that affects her confidence going forward. The difficulty in talking about and promoting a multi-faceted book. Cover design and summary decisions for Unlikely Animals. Why she chose to tell the story in the collective voice. The atmospheric place she lived when she began writing Unlikely Animals.

In this episode, Vicky talks about the hybrid nature of gig work and what you need in order to thrive in the gig economy.   What you will learn from this episode: Discover how you can prepare physically, mentally, and financially before securing a gig Understand why skills and adaptability are important factors that can help you secure multiple promising gigs Find out the importance of having a good mentor and being with a good network   “Test it out. And then if you love it, take on another gig. Do baby steps with this.” - Vicky Oliver   Valuable Free Resource: How you can develop your skills, keep up with technology and find the right gig work with the help of a good network and the power of advanced technology: LinkedIn   Topics Covered: 02:08 - Challenge is finding a good mentor or a good network to surround yourself with and help you with your skills development 02:46 - Making the jump in their career without really being prepared for it: the common mistake business women leaders make when trying to take the next step to grow their career solo 04:45 - One free and actionable tip you can do when trying to prepare yourself for that awesome and fulfilling gig you've always wanted: I believe the most important thing is to keep all of your skills sharp, and particularly up to date. And that means learning. Learning new skills as you go along. So often, it's easy, especially if you're working full-time someplace and you've been there for a couple of years. It's so easy to not learn something new, you know. 07:15 - One valuable free resource to help you look for the right gig and grow your skills: LinkedIn 08:25 - Q: I might have asked myself about time management because when I really think about it and peel away the onion, the problem with being somebody that's always learning and absorbing new information is that it's going to interfere with your time management. A:  Let's say you get a new update, right? You know, you're there, you're on email, and you get a new update, right? You don't want to update because it's going to take time away from you.   Key Takeaways: “The most important thing is to keep all of your skills sharp, and particularly up to date. And that means learning. Learning new skills as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “If you're a gig worker, and you're doing part-time jobs, and you're going from place-to-place freelancing, you really have to stay up on that technology. You have to be able to adapt and learn. And if you don't know it, know that you are able to figure it out as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “That's just a reality that we have to sort of recognize the technology, we must build the skills. And it is time-consuming to do it. And I would say you have to do it when you have the opportunity to do it.” - Vicky Oliver “It takes a little bit of an adjustment, and you have to agree with it and it needs to agree with you.

Internetové giganty budú mať ťažšie časy v Európe. Európsky parlament schválil dve smernice, ktoré regulujú firmy ako google, či Facebook. Riešiť chce dezinoformácie, nenávisť, ale aj dominantné postavenie na trhu, aplikácie, či algoritmy. Pomôžu nové smernice tomu, aby na internete nebol priestor zahltený nenávisťou? Alebo je to len ďalšia malá aktivita, ktorá internetový hejt nezmení? Zuzana Kovačič Hanzelová sa pýtala Ondreja Podstupku, moderátora podcastu Klik a zástupcu šéfredaktorky Denníka SME. Zdroje zvukov: Youtube/Al Jazeera English Odporúčanie: New York Times urobil rebríček kníh o dezinformáciách, ktoré by ste si mali prečítať.

After reading Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses, I was delighted to have the opportunity to sit down and discuss the book with author Sarah Fay. In this exploration of the ways we pathologize our human experiences, Sarah opens the door to a new conversation about mental health. In this episode, Sarah shares:  How and why do we categorize ourselves to make everyday life easier How any diagnosis can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy Her recommendations for when you are handed a diagnoses Why recognizing signals in your body can help you learn how to process feelings and emotions   Sarah Fay (Ph.D., Iowa MFA) is an award-winning author and mental health advocate working to improve how we think and talk about mental health by moving the conversation away from simplistic diagnoses and toward a deeper understanding of our mental and emotional lives. Her personal experience of being diagnosed with six different mental health disorders and finding no relief led her to investigate the diagnoses we receive and to write her journalistic memoir, Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses which Apple Books chose as one of the Best Books in March. Sarah has shared her story on NPR, Salon, and more.  I hope you find this conversation as fascinating as I did.  Be sure to share the episode with your friends and family.
