I’m a big “Snaper” and here is a fantastic episode with a few incredible stories by amazing storytellers: Rebecca Hertz, Jeff Greenwald, Roman Mars (from 99% Invisible) , and Glynn Washington himself.
I use to be a big fan of The Sims, but never played the online version, just because, meanwhile, organic life took over! A simulated digital world can be so emotionally comfortable and reliable. The sudden end of it can be tragic.
I swear that I try to branch out and listen to other podcasts in order to publish a wide variety here. But even though I listen to many podcasts, I choose today yet another This American Life episode!
This episode was absolutely incredible. An interesting story of a bogus social science study. A bit ironic that a new study, however, reveals some of the same findings the retracted study did.
And then, the most amazing story from the podcast “Beautiful Stories by Anonymous People”, which is a new podcast I intend to follow closely. This story makes you think that so often we get trapped in our own inertia despite the opportunities presented around us. We have plans, dreams, ambitions, but inertia takes over and fear prevails. Sometimes we would be better off using Nike’s philosophy and Just Do It!
Three great stories. Even though I’m not a great fan of fictional stories on podcasts, really enjoyed The One About the Dead Dog. We all know someone who has the most unbelievable stories about themselves and make us wonder if there is truth in all that…
