No two people learn new stuff the same way. Over the years, those with opportunity have followed a path set by society’s standard bearers. Others learn from those around them, in hands-on experiences and apprenticeships. The information age has thrown the door open on new ways of becoming an expert. Can we take our training into our own hands: an online class; a new skill; a gig job? This podcast takes a meditative stroll across several generations to think about how we learn new stuff. Can we chart our own educational journey and still be judged by peers and employers as professional?
We humans dress to “fit” in. Sometimes fitting in is a choice, other times it’s a matter of safety and security, and yet not fitting can also be deliberate. This podcast digs deep into how we make decisions about how to dress to suit different occasions.
