#22: Rob Henderson on the Search for Stability


Rob is a Gates scholar at Cambridge, doing his PhD in Psychology. He's written for such venerable outlets as the New York Times and Quillette. As you'll hear, he served in the Air Force and grew up in the foster system. He brings a different perspective than the usual one to the academic realm. Rob are exactly what we need in the academic world: people who have a different set of life experiences than the median one who are intelligent and thoughtful and trying to reconcile the empirical findings of psychological science with their own experiential portion of the world. He's got such an interesting story, which is mostly what we talk about here, and if you find it compelling I'm sure he'd appreciate it if you sign up for his newsletter.
