22 Jul Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth
At the top of the pod, Adam tells Bryan and Gina about the rules for Hair and Makeup when you do TV appearances. They go on to discuss Adam’s thoughts on sunblock and showering, and then Adam takes a call from someone who’s worked on the Murder Reduction Strategy for New Orleans. Later, Gina reads news stories about Trump tweeting that wearing masks is patriotic, Kanye West turning on his family during his latest ‘bi-polar episode’, and Coronavirus drones being used to sanitize large areas quickly. Later they discuss how the NFL is getting back to action, restaurants refusing to serve people who do wear masks, and another viral vid of someone going crazy over mask regulations. Before the break, Gina reports on Trader Joes renaming some of their products after cries of racism.
Adam is joined by both Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth at the start of Part 2 of today’s podcast. He asks them about their new podcast, ‘No Stupid Questions’, and they go on to chat about the importance of grit, and how to develop it. Later they discuss the differences between self-esteem, humility, and self-efficacy. Other topics of conversation include Adam’s experience growing up, and having a mental checklist of goals to accomplish in the future. As the interview wraps up, Adam asks Stephen and Angela to talk more about self-awareness and success. Stick around for today’s Good Sports, with Adam and Dave Dameshek.
