Maybe if I learn Python I can automate our entire podcast to fix Juan getting names wrong constantly?
In Episode #323 of 'Meanderings' Juan and I discuss: a sneak peak into my 2023 goals, why problem solving can be extremely frustrating, reasons for learning a programming language, Juan's (somewhat inaccurate) description of a chimp doco he saw, whether we would go out and live with animals in the wild, being precise with your words when learning new ones from books, my recent chat with Pete Smissen about rare house plants and an emphasis to share our awesome chapter art!
As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
