Podcast Of The Week: The Blindboy Podcast Live with Colm O'Gorman

I'm catching up with episodes of The Blindboy Podcast and this week I listened to Blindboy's thought and emotion provoking interview with Colm O'Gorman, the executive director of Amnesty International Ireland and founder of One in Four, a support organisation for survivors of sexual violence and abuse. The interview is wide-ranging, from Colm's work and personal life to how Ireland is currently a beacon of light for supporting human rights in a lot of areas of policy and public opinion.

Podcasts Of The Week: Naval

I've been listening to a great podcast this week by Naval Ravikant. The first set of episodes are commentary by Naval on a tweet storm he put out a while ago about how to get rich. Despite the sexy title, the content is actually about wealth creation and how best to leverage oneself into a position to build wealth, be that meaningful work, relationships, money, or all of the above. Each of the initial podcast episodes are tied together into one big megasode which is packed full of wisdom bombs.

TV Review: Knock Down The House

Netflix released its political documentary Knock Down The House this week. The film follows the campaigns of four non-career politicians that ran for congress in the U.S. 2018 midterm elections, endorsed to run by the Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress committees. The stories and journeys of all four campaigners are riveting and emotional, but perhaps the most famous of which is the story of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who contested in the district of The Bronx & Queens in New York City.

Stephen Wolfram's Personal Infrastructure

Stephen Wolfram has published a fascinating long-read on his personal infrastructure. He details all the tech he uses in his everyday life and how he organises and categorises everything, most of which are processes which he has optimised over the last 30 years. It is inspiring how efficiently he organises everything, down to having labelled plastic envelopes of devices, tech and accessories for travelling, hotel stays, car hire trips etc.
