⚡️ Drowning In Irrationality: The Brisbane Floods Aftermath & Good Reasons To Not Reason

Mere Mortals

We're live on the scene next to the murky Brisbane river!

In Episode #279 of 'Meanderings' Juan and I discuss: what the flooding in BNE was like, how creativity works at the top of corporate hierarchy, the concept of cultivating a habit that you don't want, a philosophy book by Derek Parfit, whether we would take an irrationality pill if given the chance and some fun hypotheticals.

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
