Malcolm Gladwell, RadioLab, Steven Levitt & Stephen Dubner, Waking Life and This American Life are a handful of examples of people, pieces or programs that consistently draw me in. I find it fascinating to learn about who we are and how we work. All of those examples have taught me many things about myself. I don't always agree with what they have to say or the perspective they're sharing, but what I do always admire is that they've helped me look at things differently than I normally would.I first stumbled upon these videos on my brother Steven's blog and they had the same effect on me as the others listed above. After digging a bit more I found a whole series of videos by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufacturing and Commerce. Unfortunately my internet connection right now is as slow as they come, so I've been unable to view them all. The first two below are the one's I've seen, but all the others after that are queued up to watch when ready. Hope you like them as much as I did and walk away from them with a bit more knowledge in that brain of yours.
