The Cognitive Revolution podcast

Welcome to my show about the personal side of the intellectual journey. In each episode, I talk to a leading scientist, writer, or thinker about their early career experiences and how those experiences shaped their development. I created this show because it's all too easy to see the successes of great scientists and creatives as unattainable. But that's because we only see the outcome, not the process. Cognitive Revolution is a show about the process.
