I’m Erik, and my goal is to find and recommend podcasts (and other links) that will make you think.
The things that will change your mind about something or really broaden your perspective on how the world works. If you want more audio in your life that will give you a sense of wonder, you’ll fit right in.
Podcasts are one of the most underutilized tools for learning, and there are so many hidden and not so hidden gems that are the audio equivalent of a really good book.
I also like to create visuals (like here, here, and here) about podcasts and creativity. I have a certain disdain for bland stock photos, so I also try to create my own visuals for things I write as much as possible.
I sometimes write for other publications. See a full list below.
