NCAA Tournament West Preview
"It's ncaa tournament time we had championship. Week was absolutely spectacular. You had a championship game. That wasn't so spectacular in america conference by the big twelve was tremendous big. Ted was tremendous. Because you know what those two leagues are tremendous all season. Long games aren't games. they're events the acc was anti climactic but great for josh passenger and the greatest shield in the history of life. The big east to me was phenomenal. I mean patrick ewing. Not only does he no longer needed credential again but he got into madison square garden and walked away with four games in four days and his team played like an old vintage georgetown team. Pac twelve stolen a bid which was really cool. Wayne tinkle's got it was who was on the hot seat. It was so cool is good coach. A good person attack boil. Who's another great guy still going tournament. So i thought championship week was absolutely spectacular. Your take oh. I thought it was great. I look. I'm gonna tell you houston's legit at chance due to their games including the championship game in the ac. That is a legitimate. I was happy that drake dot in. I was happy that twenty five and four guy in. I thought that was terrific. I love the fact that the drew brothers are in the tournament. The demolishing of creighton shocked the living in. Hell on me. And says i'm telling you i like when you lose guys mclaughlin aquino record and next thing you know man. What are you doing better. The next year matt pain and getting himself in the top four seeds after losing two guys eastern and harms but overawe a look championship. Week was the sec. Tournament was off the charts with the championship. Game and college basketball delivers it delivers every damn nights. Let's go to the west ready. Let's do it all right now. Let's do this number one seat. I was thinking what games in the upper half of the west. Are you looking forward to see. I wanna see what. Oklahoma can do eight nine game now. Maybe it doesn't matter because you're gonna play gonzaga. But i think this i think if you're gonna play along krueger team whether you're konso martyn missouri. Who has struggled or whether you're gonzaga. You know you're going to play a very very good basketball team. And i had them earlier in the year they can shoot it. They defend it. They play hard. I don't think they're overly talented and the kid to get something done but lon kruger is so good at dictating pace. That if i'm sitting here with gonzaga i wanna lesser coach in my second round game assuming that they win. What do you got. Well you know i actually. I think missouri can win that game. A jeremiah tells me he's going to have to go out guard on out on a primitive 'cause they're playing brady at the five and they've run them all over the place on the other side though rate mattis gutter guard that dude on the block to is become a good player control martin's team when they're older and more mature and her physical they are talking tournament. Think about what he did tennessee. So you know this is going to be really good game because you've got a tough physical team in missouri. You've got a team that attacks match ups plays almost four guards in oklahoma. I'm actually leaning towards missouri in this match up. Well you're going to be wrong and that's okay you can be. It's okay. I can be wrong. It will be the first time won't be the last time and you know that's right. I don't have either. We'll on from barry. I but i touched on that but also got to say tony bennett said that most of his team is in quarantine south. Now i don't know about you but that preston kid that plays at ohio university. Ooh yeah he can go and all of a sudden. You're talking about a team that wait a second. I know i know. Virginia's good. I know virginia came on. I know they ended up with the one seat in the acc tournament. But seth you're playing against a hot as hell ohio university team. A team led by jeff bowls. Who frankly he's the perga- guide ohio you because he loves ohio you. He played there with the with the shock of the mac. But when you're playing a team in quarantine sat that tells me they're not practicing. That tells me this is gonna be a hats. This'll be a good game regardless.

"Like there. There are there are things that you develop expertise and when you when you have to deal with human data and training that you get in terms of like these theoretical conceptual relationships in how they how they relate to operational definitions in your study design that i doubt this person has expertise in and so i feel like he's ignoring and i'm not basing this on just the fact that he's a geologist rate. I'm it on the fact that i read two of his papers very carefully and he. He ignored things that i feel like. You would have to address in order to strongly. Make the claim that the dunning kruger effect is artifact like acknowledging the experimental data for study three about the social comparison and the The lack of symmetry on either side. All right. well you've convinced me. I feel a lot. But i see what you're saying. And that's so. I guess we can continue going along in our lives thinking. The dunning kruger effect is real and it makes sense that that is my position. I will qualify once again though that he probably has expertise and things i don't so maybe i'm missing something here. That's totally possible. But people have been trying to debunk this effect for a long time and it is stood up to a lot of criticism and i think that says something. There's a lot of extra which that is not the case. Well thanks so much for the breakdown lindsay. You're such a good science talking person that i bet you would underestimate your skill at talking science. How good you are. I love hearing these breakdowns from you. That's so quite a lot of people. Were talking about this online. So i maybe they will refer to this and believe in the dunning kruger affect once again. Yeah me too. Well thanks so much for listening. Everybody thanks so much lindsay again for coming on I love these scienc- episodes either just so much fun and you explained so clearly on really enjoy it. i'm sure we will Be talking again in the very near future everybody else.

"Something. The wind blew it all the way to california. It was unbelievable gale-force hurricane winds are fence got knocked over trees power of quarter million people out power and. i'm hoping i get. I hope i hope this This recording goes okay. It's it's it's not a sure thing power has been in and out but so that's me and then we think we're all it's all resolved. We're good we recovered this morning. You know and when you know at phoebe as a fever which means should we can't both kids can't go to daycare for a calendar year or something until they. Yeah yeah so that's my day anyway. I'm really excited to have you on though because you're this cheer me up. This is going to be really cool episode because there was an article by jonathan jerry and he wrote about the fact that the dunning kruger effect might not be real and made made some waves on the twitter on the interwebs super curious about this so lindsay was kind enough to check this out. Apply her spider technology. Sorry technology really did play a large role my ability to register quick plug to the twitch stream where we have been streaming here and there and talking about all kinds of cool reproductive facts about other species. It's been a lot of fun Be thankful that you're not a spider. Everybody be thankful that you're not a spider. Well specifically a male spider. I guess the women have it. Yeah they seem. They seem to be doing okay. We get a lot of snacks. Yes feel a little bit peckish. they remedy that. Probably the plugging doesn't sound like that much fun. Though so i. I wouldn't want to be a spider of of either sex personally. Yeah more details on the twitch dot tv slash series bud stream of your check out those videos. It's been a lot of fun. Maybe don't bring your kids. I don't know unless spider kids. Actually especially if they're spider says better that they don't know all right now that we've covered that. Let's talk about dunning kruger. Since you are so good at science blaming everything. I thought maybe since i read this article maybe i can try to explain what i think this is saying. You can tell me if i got it right and then critiquing or confirm it. What do you think yeah now. That sounds fun okay. So this article. It seems pretty plausible to me as not a scientist. And i can't wait for you to tell me why i'm wrong. But it shows the classic chart the dunning kruger effect. You know in the common understanding is that the the less you know. Roughly speaking the less you know about a topic the more. You're going to overestimate your knowledge of a topic or a thing task or whatever and so the classic experiment involved a self assessment and like comparing a score on a test on something no. It was grammar. No that was just one of the examples. Gra- grammar was one of them. Yeah so taking some sort of like Asking people you know. How do you think you'll score on a grammar test for example and they estimate what they think they'll score and then they take the test and the classic chart that i'm sure a lot of us are familiar with the core tile or you know the lower people in terms of actual score have all asked overestimated their abilities and actually the top. The people who score highest have slightly underestimated their abilities. And so i think the common conception has been that like the less you know the more you overestimate your abilities and then as you become an expert then you're maybe humbled a little bit. And so you underestimate your abilities and So this article though suggests that perhaps this is just like an. I don't know what you want to call it a data artifact or problem with 'cause like apparently if you just replace the data with like randomness random samples you reproduced the effect and so the thing. And when i looked at that it kind of made sense in a way like oh. It's it's almost as though everybody basically estimates that they are average because like the the the the perceived ability is pretty close to average. You know like within a little bit and again you're gonna science buying this to us in just a minute but it made a bit of intuitive sense to me like oh yeah. It does kind of seem like i. I could see where that might come about from just random data like if everybody imagine you know you're going to assess a score on a random thing you know some test. On average people will estimate that they are somewhere around average you know and then the people who are at the bottom of the test by definition there will will have overestimated themselves. Because they you know. It's it averages out so to me that seem kind of compelling and the the the end at the end of the day on this article it's like well this might not be a real effect. So how did i do and then what do you think about this article. You did a wonderful job. So yeah so. I think that. That's a good summary of jump and jerry was was was summarizing here so i have to bottom lines that we can circle back to after i. I think it's very important to actually go through the original demonstration of the dunning kruger to talk about some of the more nuance results. Because this critique is sort of aimed at lake the basic demonstration that they did of the effect but it actually doesn't address The more nuanced evidence that provides more conclusive support for the mechanisms. That are proposing so. That's where i want to get to eventually. There's a lot more to this paper than just that graph Short they're sort of you know critiquing there and also i saw new for is is the lead researcher that authored the paper that job and jerry's talking about here and the critique that he's leveling here is not a new one so this this critique was presented pretty soon after the publication of the of the original dunning nineteen ninety nine article and it has been thoroughly addressed like they've back. Yeah they've done tasks and sort of reanalyze. The data in a way that is consistent with the recommendations of people who have made these kind of statistical artifact claims and they've found that it doesn't make the effect go away. Oh interesting.

"Problem for some people they're incompetent and they don't have the expertise to realize that the strategy they've chosen has a lot of problems with it because they literally lacked the expertise able to recognize those problems if they have that expertise At the very least they be asking for advice from other people. So so incompetent people are in a a special situation where it's not that they don't recognize their lack of skill and denying their lack of skill is they're not in a position to to make the call correctly around opposition to realize just how badly they're doing. That is Dr David Dunning, explaining the Dunning, Kruger effect from an episode going all the way back to six years ago. That's right. Six years ago. So I'm working on a very big episode right now about persuasion. and. As you know, this is a one person operation and I needed some time to finish that episode. So in this episode, we return to a show from six years ago that really established the sort of guests I wanted to feature because not only is this an episode about the Dunning Kruger Affect the guest is Dr. David. Dunning himself who along with Justin Kruger conducted the study. coined the term way back in nineteen ninety. Nine. What is the done in cougar affect will in a nutshell it's the fact that all human beings are unaware that we lack the skill to tell how unskilled and unaware we are. The evidence suggests that we all have this complicated relationship with our own ignorance. and. It's dishonest. It's complicated but it keeps US sane happy and willing to get out of bed in the morning and part of that relationship is this blind spot we'd possess that obscures both our competence and incompetence. And we call it the done in cougar effect, and as you'll hear from Dr Dunning, we are generally very bad itself assessment that's what it comes down to. So if you've ever been confronted with the fact that you you're in over your head, he had no idea what you doing or you thought you were more skilled at something than you actually were. You may have experienced effect. It is very easy to be both unskilled and unaware of how unskilled you are, and in this episode, we're going to explore why that is. So here it is a classic from the archives and Interview Dr David Dunning about both the history of the dunning. Kruger. Effect and his. Research into the phenomenon. Here we go. Okay David. Feels.

"About a stone's throw from his house. But Gareth is a bit of controversy behind the song Quite A Lot in that. He deserted his fellow countrymen wage. At the time that Lord Roberts is a load Roberts is basically just at the edge of Victoria about to take it over. So he basically got out of there and he stayed for quite a long time in the Eastern transvaal. He had a train that he stayed in and I believe that he was carrying his many bags or whatever. They might call it and they crossed into the Portuguese Frontier down to Lorenzo Marques as they called it and then his wife got very ill and when he gets it to Europe, she didn't join him. So yeah, that must have been a devastating time in his last seating the last of Africa and he would probably believe very much that have never see it again and leaves his wife of fifty odd years and part of the story is also that on his flight to maputo which is been known as Lorenzo marks. He was actually basically held hostage on a ship as a political prisoner for a month until Queen Philomena of the Netherlands intervened and gave him safe passage where he he obviously went first to France and then to to Holland wage. And spent quite a lot of time in Holland. He was very close to the Dutch royal family. I mean, he spoke Dutch, you know Afrikaans was still in nascent language at that point. He also spoke a little bit of English, but interestingly he could talk to Anna and sesotho almost fluently, correct? Yeah. I think that one of the things that struck me about this guy Paul Kruger is that again, there's an intersection between his life and the life of your choice, which we've paid some attention to in the previous episode of blind history because he actually appointed once met at a very tender age as State Attorney and upon meeting smarts for the first time he remarks to another man who ended up writing a Dom that he thought that this man had great prospects and would turn into someone quite formidable and that's interesting because of course, they were very different personalities and what they ended up in buddying was such very different things and deliberates, which we didn't have in disgust too much of but he was very much key in that actual. Now we Krueger went into Exile birth. And he was you know kitchen at came with a surrender document for them to sign interesting reading this Gareth on the surrender document that that was requested a representative not a military government that the birds allowed to retain their firearms Dutch language to be maintained the Dutch Church to remain unchanged and obviously the public trusts and often thought to be looked after the attacks on farmers and amnesty to all of the end of the war and actually they the British accepted that but then Larry Bird came back and said look, but the birds didn't accept that. So so then walk out on for another two years. He's well-known obviously for a number of things the Krugerrand which is a famous bit of gold currency. It's probably the only golden age you can legally own Krueger statue in church square, which I mentioned Krueger house switches in Pretoria, which is still a museum and of course the worm full pipe the pipe that he used to smoke his tobacco. It's a famous style of pipe which I say was especially developed for him. Sure. I wonder what what was the shape of his face or his nose? Well, I'll tell you something that when Paul was he was not much to look at and in almost any picture from his youth right through to his very old age in Switzerland. He was not a looker. I think Sonny had a tough time. There's one famous South African part that said the image human from the clips blow-by-blow is described him. So overall not a pretty picture a bit of a cantankerous personality mostly formidable human beings by any guys estimation and someone who just wasn't to be messed with at a time where the strong survive and the weak ones just conduct and I'm kind of proud that. I know a little bit more about him. I agree a hundred percent of what I'm very proud of is the fact that he was a hunter but you also like many Hunters groups.

"Heard the name before but it probably doesn't mean that much to most of us. He lived between 18-25 wage. A 1904 so a little outside of living memory. They called him when Paul and he was the president chiefly of the zika free concert Republic the early South African public mostly in the transvaal at that stage. That's kind of the most important Top Line stuff about Paul Kruger. I must tell you I found his early life a lot more interesting than his political life Laden when he became president and he was descended from a woman called Cricket or who was a a slave girl who was brought from Malaysia and there were a lot of Malay slaves brought to the cape Colony Shack. He grew up somewhere in the in the karoo. Actually. It was like the the Northern Western Cape that area, you know Carlsberg area. That's right. And and he he seems to have come from a family of some repute. He also has descended from Peter Pan Meredith who is quite a well-known Dutch settler. The family had been in the country for some generations already by then in his father Casper and his mother had him in, Georgia. Like somewhere I think you're right Colesburg or something, but that's not where he started making history. Not at all. But he had to grab very fast cuz his mother died when he was very very young ages. Also his dad beige brought up him and his brothers or his siblings. And then his Dad decided to join the great trick who who was Edmund moving up from the south and from the southwest and when they moved through their joined on and basically across all River there's quite a cool story about that. So Hendrick putki third, one of the famous Trek leaders came through the town where the Krugers lived and he convinced Paul Kruger's dad that there was a possibility for independence from the English. They weren't particularly anti-british, but the idea of building their own country of pioneering their own land was really what pulled the crew goes in and and you know portrait was a young man at that stage very young age, but he learned to hunt very quickly. He learned to ride horses immaculately. He learned about life on the felt and you know, you think about the fact that in 1835 dead. This is a very young man. He went and took part in a battle called The Battle of fat club, which was in Hell brought in the Free State now listen to these numbers and just to give you an idea of how difficult it was wrong to be both a member of the much ability tribe and the King Chillicothe but also to be a four tracker on the 9th of October of that year and silicates resent 5,000 Metabolife Warriors to attack the food trackers. Now the ratio of matabele Warriors to put trackers was one to a hundred and fifty and somehow remarkably miraculously block. These foot traffic is managed to win. And Paul Kruger was a young man. He was in his teens as early teens and he was loading guns and the women were loading guns and they were only probably a handful of fighting men who could actually backfire the weapons and they still one. I mean, this is just if you think about that ratio, it's quite remarkable hundred percent and if you look at Mozilla causey's Warriors, they were notorious they were famous for purging Fearsome, you know a fighting Army. He also famous for being quite shitted battle if you ask me I suppose but I don't you know, you obviously the guns vs Spears that's always played a role as. Yeah. I mean actually there were there were some guns in the matter be contingent as well. But what happened was that out of those five thousand Warriors many of them were just sheep and cattle Roberts who joined in and then once they got their plunder they left so to Farmers and 184 matabele died the rest of History left and ran away but in spite of their choice, apparently the spoiled was great. So there might have been managed to plunder fifty thousand sheep and goats and five thousand cattle so they may have lost the battle but it seems they won economically. It sounds like a great tool. Yeah, it's this is what he knew cuz what's really hunting at a very young age as you mentioned earlier and often when he went hunting his rifle used to back fire or something. Went wrong with it and please Summers was blown off on one occasion. Yeah, so it's apparently he shot a lion at age. He said 14 but one of his friends who was there said he was only eleven at the time. I mean, he shot a life and the incident you're talking about was actually in elephant gun, which is a substantial piece of artillery and it blew off is left them. But the best part of the story, I don't know if you know this already but he went home the camp afterwards with like half of his thumb blown away and he put it in turpentine. That's how you that's how you made it better and then it wasn't healing and he felt that his arm off a gangrenous and the doctor said they're going to have to amputate the arm and he said not a chance that he took out his pocket knife and he cut off his own thumb with his pocket knife. That's correct. And when the incident happened actually in the bush off the off his Hunting Party of anybody had a pocket knife with him instead. No no, no, no. No, we haven't but and recklessly City winter time and cut it off. So he was known at this stage of his laughing. Fearless very brave Fearless in his Hunting Expeditions and also, you know when yours with the Commandos, well, he may have been Fearless but he's also really uneducated. I think he only had three months worth of Education in his entire life and that just proves to you know, we often give Jacob Zuma the gears for having only completed up to standard six but here's Paul Kruger had three months of formal education and he still became a president of the site after concert in public. They settled in potchefstroom and then obviously in rustenburg later on an area which is filled with natural art crops and and natural features that are named after the cruises but their family farm he actually got at sixteen which was the customer at the time. He got to choose a farm of his own at the foot of the Mechanicsburg. And that house is still a National Monument today that well the property is certainly and in fact, it's one of the places and we'll get to this later. It's one of the places they say that they may have lost or hidden or stashed the krugerrands the Kruger Millions. Yep. Vegetable married Anna Maria Asia duplicity. I mean these names are just fantastic and he went off to the Eastern transvaal with her and then they returned later on to rustenburg, but she had caught some illness and she and the infant child died in those days wasn't unusual to marry early. I think he's dead and were married when they were fifteen and eleven while because that normally didn't live very long the women were very scarce. Gino's day so yet to you have to go get his first bride from a very far distance and he wants a story a bit Legend and not that he had to cross the Volta River in full flood yet to actually swim across it to be able to to grow up his broad and We complain about Tinder exactly. So no problem. He got married a second time also to a duplicity. But this one's name take this down Cocina sewage Frederica Willamina duplicity sunny, sunny sunny sunny, and they had seven daughters and 9 sons and she lived all the way to 1901 dying off. Three years before him and his son. He obviously was particularly voluptuous. Awesome on this young round woman. And today we would call that fat-shaming exactly and yeah, but they said she was not a pretty girl but when he loved so I spent the rest of their lives together and they said the soft round woman that would like to be affectionately known as dents any he became a field cornet which is like a magistrate or an officer when he was very young. He joined the foxtrot also at a very young age and played a role in a quarrel between two of my ancestors, which I I really find interesting, you know, the minute history becomes personal it seems to me that much more. So I'm a direct descendant of stuff honest woman who's called the storm full funny new idea who is a month red bearded quite aggressive nasty, man. He didn't have a lot of friends, but he was a force of Nature and mustiness vessel pretorius who's also an ancestor of Main and I didn't know that Kruger had played this role in trying to bring them together a number of times. In fact, he did that with the end goal being that he wanted to unify the afrikaners into a new Republic. He took part in the famous palm sander of a convention with Andreas pretorius who was actually a major influence in his life. He developed quite a relationship with the older pretorius underneath the guy who'd one blood River and asked him pretorius made em, and he admired he said his resolve sophistication and piety and piety, especially with something important to Paul. He was a very religious man. He became a common Dunton at all in the Army then which is kind of like the most important officer in that army and eventually vice president in 1877. Very very young managed. All these different positions. It's quite a remarkable life and you think that he was out there, you know, hunting lions and and and taking part in battles in his teens and then going into politics and and living a really full life wage. Makes me feel like such an underachiever. He became vice president in 1877. And that was when Britain annexed the Zar into British territory, and that was mostly because they saw that goal was becoming the big thing in South Africa and they were greedy to make sure that their hands were all over it. The British played on this and educated thought they saw him as backward superstitious. Yeah. I'm an old man and then grotesquely ugly and often called him a literate peasants. So they were hardcore. Whereas the European continent loved him when he got to Europe. He would got a hero welcome, which is incredible. I mean when you got to my say they were significant amount of people there to receive him and the same as in in Holland well in in some ways they treated him much like we think of Nelson Mandela today is a freedom fighter because here he was this man who was standing up to the mighty British Empire and trying to get independence and sovereignty for his own people. So in some ways I suppose that contract Has been born out in history many times one man's Freedom Fighter is another man's terrorist and he did make a mess of difference. I think he was one of the first to rise up against and start the resistance against the British. That's absolutely right and wage. He sent deputations to London to plead for Independence and sovereignty for the Z they are and they were ignored and the first world war broke out just after that and it was really a fight for independence phone number but he'd gone over to England and number of times and gone to Europe and on the second occasion that he went to Europe. He actually met. So from Bismarck, you know, the famed month and he took a balloon ride over Paris, which was a massive highlight for him. Wow. That's tremendous. I mean you see again these lives intersecting all these famous people who kind of met each other but they were alive at the same time and they were important enough to be in the same room, correct? Well, he became president eventually and that was when he succeeded in going to London and pleading with Britain wage. For Independence and they actually recognized the South African Republic then as a separate independent state, but it became an issue that Brits were pouring in to the Zar or the s a r s shows at that point and they were coming in mostly because of gold on The Big Box restaurant and you know Cecil John Rhodes and and Maitland and people like that were very much in favor of of sending British Prospectors wage. They would Prospectors you were coming to try and find their their fortune and on the Bedford restaurant, but the media T that fork who started calling them eight Landers, you know foreigners. That's right and wrong treated them actually to be the folks who are treated them very very badly in that that's been massive taxes and it didn't get the same rights and it was quite an interesting story about the Jewish people and he was actually off he called in God's chosen people but there was an instance when you were surveying the city in this is of Johannesburg now. Yeah, each church was allotted a certain number of stands and just so happy. Do a double the amount of Christian churches to synagogues and then they asked why and you just basically said they could only receive half the amount of land and seems that you saw the humor in there because they only read off the Bible. Well, yeah, it's interesting that he was a religious man, but they were very old testament type Christians, you know that he had foreign dekat which he was a founding member of we call the dopers in South Africa. That church is. Well known for really being A Very Old Testament based Church. They don't allow music in church that quite joyless and very calvinistic but he was with the guys at the very beginning of that movement. And that's where a lot of the reputation that he has for being this deeply serious quite grumpy humorless and Bland human being comes from and how long is all of those things but just not to the degree that he was caricatured by the British. I'm definitely not. I mean it was one instance where he built a church and then he went on to the roof that just being built and stood on his head in front of everybody. So he did some strange things as well. Well, the egg lenders were a big problem and he was re-elected three times on the 8th landed question. The Jamison read the famous Jameson raid happened in eighteen ninety-five ninety-six and that was embarrassing to the British girl led to the second world war of this thing. And after that second world war Kruger left for Europe in Nineteen Hundred and he refused to return home. He died in Switzerland of old places. Overlooking Lake Geneva in a reasonably nice house at the age of 78 in 1904 and he was buried there but then they dug him up and they brought him back to South Africa and he's buried in Pretoria at the hell darker, which is.

This Week is from Jessica Wildfire who you'll find on medium dot com, and here is how did date someone with recurring dunning Kruger there everywhere. There's nothing more irritating than someone who thinks they're smarter than everyone else I would no I spent my twenties dating them. They still bragged about things like their sat scores being Valedictorian or spending a year as the editor of their highschool newspaper. You know if these remain your biggest accomplishments as a twenty, six year old, you're not exactly crushing it. We normally talk about dunning Kruger like it's a temporary phenomenon that can afflict anyone but we all know a few people who take up permanent residence on Mount Stupid. The word effect doesn't quite do the job here for them. It's more of a perennial state, a recurring condition. Sometimes, you just have to manage someone with perpetual dunning Kruger and minimize the damage they do. It's not a great blueprint for dating but if you'd like to give it a shot, here's a set of helpful tips they also work well, if you're friends with someone who's been kissed by Dunning Kruger. Don't forget to help them. They'll stop using their brain altogether they'll double down on doing something in the wrong way when someone has done in Kruger, you have to wait for them to come to you for help. Let them make a huge mess someone with dunning Kruger doesn't like to be warned about things. They think instructions are for idiots.

Always love talking podcasting shopping and digging in so excited to be connecting here with you and your listeners right on, and I am excited to have you here because podcasting is obviously one of my favorite things but it feels like it is. It is something that a lot of people have questions about. and I have a question for you. Which is why? Why do you think now? Is such an incredible time to use PODCASTING TO BE A. In whatever industry someone is? Yeah and I love starting with this question because I'm I am. Of the opinion that cussing just a communication channel and medium there's video. There's podcasting there's blogging. There's email there's social. There's various forms and. PODCASTING is has its own natural strengths, and it has its own natural weaknesses when you compare it to the natural strengths and weaknesses of the other platforms in medium so. I see podcasting, being particularly important and relevant now because we're in this phase to where in person and live events are a little bit thrown into question from from covert and from you know a lot of companies are now having their workforce's working from home. and there's much more of a distributed more digital interaction format going on right now. And part of the challenge here is, it's just a time of uncertainty. People are looking for leadership. They're looking for connection there, looking for information and guidance now more than ever. They're working from home. They are not attending live events and conferences, and some of those things that they're used to in their business schedules, and so. podcasting allows for someone to be a leader to. To advocate to. Essentially create content and create a valuable resource for their audience for their industry, and they can do it from home, so it's got you know social distancing built right into it. But, I think I think that's a pretty important piece at the moment.

"Well, some aspects of lessons tail are hard to take at face value. Take. The map stitched into his Bible. There wasn't any proof that it existed, and even if it did, we don't actually know where it really lead them. For All we know lessing picked a random place out in the wild to make his claim, and already had the coins in his possession. If. The story has any truth to it. The money that H. J lessons father buried was probably a small amount that had saved up for his family. Since every gold coin in Transvaal had his face on them. There's no way to distinguish between millions in any other stash of money. And, personal caches could explain a lot of the other gold finds as well. Maybe when the Transvaal Republic fell the south, African lanes seem safer than banks or perhaps people couldn't carry their money. When they fled their homes, so they left it behind. Alternatively Krueger might have smuggled some money out of the Transvaal Republic then had it distributed among his generals, so no single person could ever find it all. As, the bore army retreated from Pretoria. They further divided the gold amongst ordinary soldiers. Then over the years, these smaller sums were lost were spent. The problem is there's no hard evidence to prove that the Gruber's millions were passed around. There's no hard evidence to prove any of our theories. In our research, we encountered many stories and contradicting fax as well as urban legends. People debate the value of Kruger's fortune ranging from eight hundred thousand pounds to over three million pounds. Even, the timeline of Kruger's flight to Europe is disputed. In all of these stories, chaos reigns supreme. When their homes are about to be seized, people scramble for their survival. Ordinary recordkeeping goes out the window tracking gold coins just isn't a priority. Which means the truth is probably missy. If a trove was buried, it's probably not a single large stash. In all likelihood, the fabled mother load doesn't exist, and maybe that doesn't actually matter. Kruger's millions represent something bigger than a buried treasure. There is symbol of an unconquered nation. A last rebellion that ensured the British couldn't sees all of the bowers well. And so long as the coin stay hidden, and so long as there's a chance that they might exist somewhere on the veldt. The people of South Africa can be assured that their history remains their own..

"The sale, but he's never produced those coins or had them authenticated meaning. Maybe he was in on it after all, he made plenty of money selling tickets to his treasure hunting weekend. He could have bought a couple of gold coins from collectors pretended he found them on the Veldt and then do countless naive treasure seekers. Murray Williams with South Africa's Independent on news network suggested unless nefarious plot. ATHOL is an Air Molo town councilman and the head of the tourism bureau. He might have invented the story of discovering gold to attract treasure hunters to town. He wasn't trying to rip anyone off. He just wanted to spark interest in a local legend. But if the Kelly's and Ethel Stark, never found Kruger's fortune, that meant the stash was still out there somewhere, and it probably wasn't in the Veld, or at least not in the region of the Veldt near Amarillo. Which means maybe the treasure isn't underground it all and perhaps the man who buried the Treasurer Fritz Duquesne was lying. Duquesne had a strange life after he realized that the Boer War was lost, he snuck out of South Africa and made his way to the United States. There he was known for elaborate tales about his exploits. He became a minor celebrity worked for the president and made thousands of dollars on lecture tours. When World War One broke out, he joined the Germans in the fight against the British who he still hated after the boar wars. Later he became loyal to the Nazi party and formed aspiring during World War Two along the way he continued to spin yarns through his transition from south. African War. Hero to Nazi spy. Duquesne remained in the spotlight. His biography makes for a captivating tale, but it may have been made up. Duquesne's military service in south. Africa is well documented, but other parts of his biography have been disputed. For example he took credit for sinking the H.. M. S. Hampshire in nineteen sixteen. According to Duquesne, he was on the ship and send a signal to a nearby German submarine, revealing the Hampshire's location. He managed to board a lifeboat and row a safe distance away right as the submarine fired on the ship, killing nearly everyone aboard. For his espionage efforts, he received a German Iron Cross. However, most historians today agree that the HMS. Hampshire struck an underwater mind. As for the Iron Cross. There's no record Fritz Duquesne ever received the recognition. That doesn't prove he lied. The documentation could have been lost or destroyed, but after the war he faked paralysis for two years to avoid extradition to Great Britain, so we're not inclined to take duquesne at his word, his accounts should at least be taken with a grain of salt, and since Duquesne is the main source for the theory that the Kruger millions were buried in the veld. That means we have to look elsewhere. In one thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, the New York. Times suggested that maybe the treasure made to Mozambique with wars loaded onto a boat the DOROTHEA. It may have held up to three million dollars worth of Kruger's loss treasure, but the Dorothea sank off the eastern South, African coast during the second Boer War between eighteen, ninety, nine in one, thousand, nine, hundred two. We don't know exactly when it sank. Or why? Because there are no official records of the ships travels, and all the cloak and dagger around its final journey leads credence to the theory that the Dorothea was secretly transporting Kruger's millions. The British dispatched the Penguin to investigate the rack in nineteen oh four. But rough seas doomed the salvage attempt. The penguins sunk two and the secrets of the DOROTHEA remained out of British. Reach in spite of numerous, follow up expeditions. No Krueger gold was ever retrieved off the coast of South Africa. Treasure seekers dredged ivory, silver and copper ingots, but absolutely no gold. Which leads us to think? The DOROTHEA probably wasn't caring Kruger's treasure. The claim that the millions were lost at sees compelling, but. Really, there's no hard evidence to support it. Perhaps the Kruger gold isn't at the bottom of the ocean because it isn't anywhere at all. Our third theory is perhaps the least romantic that the Kruger millions simply don't exist. Some historians say that the Transvaal Gold mines couldn't possibly have minted one point five million Krueger pounds. They say that Kruger's hoard could have only been eight hundred thousand pounds at the most, but the war made things incredibly chaotic in Transvaal and bookkeeping fell by the wayside as the board government was uprooted. Numbers were fudged and sums weren't double-checked, but when the British game. The Federal Leger as fact. The legend of the millions started as a clerical air which became an urban legend and then a myth. People kept retelling it because it was a good story. The defeated Boers wanted to believe they bested the Brits in the end. But if the legend was born out of poor accounting, how do we explain the treasure? Hunters like H J lessing.

"The treasure became the Kelly families closely guarded secret. For decades they didn't know what to do with the coins, but in the early nineteen nineties, the political landscape changed in South Africa. Most importantly, the nation began repealing apartheid the racist laws that made it too risky for the Kelly family to own the Kruger coins. Now that things were a little safer. They decided to open up about their secret. In nineteen, ninety, nine, one of the Kelly's descendants sought financial advice from a White Air MELO businessman. ASIL STARK! starks ears perked up when the young man mentioned the families well. He arranged a meeting with the entire Kelly family. When the assembled in the Kelly's living room stark was amazed to watch them poor dozens of coins from different containers all bearing the face of Paul Kruger. But he made a mistake when he picked one up to examine it wait by memories of the treasure hunters violence. The Kelly's lashed out. They kicked stark out of their home. He was sure that he never hear from them again. But two weeks later, the Kelly's called him back to reconsider their arrangement. Stark agreed to help them sell a few hundred coins, and they paid him a handful of coins and things stark, now owned forty, two genuine Krueger pounds worth about sixty dollars each. The payment leapt stark with a taste for riches, and he began a hunt for the remaining gold. Stockport over historical accounts of how Kruger's millions had gone missing, he cross reference them with what the Kelly's told him about their families initial discovery. With a friend of their family, he journeyed into the Saltwater Lake divine more treasurer. The friend in turn brought along local mystic. Didn't mind especially if it meant he'd have help in his search. Apparently, that was the right call because they located another box filled to the brim with Krueger gold pieces. Stark, and his companions brought the box back to his house there they counted the coins on tablecloth and sure enough. There were thousands upon thousands of them. Stark's wife came into the room and eagerly took a picture of the gold. That agitated his companions. They hadn't made a deal with Mrs. Stark and they didn't trust her on top of that. They didn't know who she might share the pictures with. They swiftly bagged up all the gold and drove away. Stark was left with only the forty two coins. The Kelly family had given him as commission or helping with the sale. The starks were devastated. They'd come so close to untold riches, then had lost it for a seemingly minor slight. They tried to contact the pair of Zulus to renegotiate to no avail. But if the legends of the Kruger millions were to be believed that cash stark had found was only the tip of the iceberg. And he knew exactly where to look from our. Best of all he the two men he'd gone treasure hunting with end, the Kelly family or the only people knew about it. So, he was in no rush to return to the stash much like Fritz Duquesne. He could wait until a more convenient time. A few years past stark kept his secret. His friends never heard about his close brush with Kruger's treasure. But they knew that he was interested in historical relics. So it was unsurprising when a few years later a friend showed him a stone pillar. They'd found with Krueger's face on it. In early two thousand, one star invited the South African Broadcasting Company for an exclusive interview about the rarefied. Unfortunately the media had alterior motives. It's unclear how the reporter knew about the uncovered Kruger coins, but they surprise stark by asking about them. Start told them to shut the cameras off, but even that was too much of a towel. Everyone who watched the broadcast news star secret the location of Kruger's millions. By June two, thousand one Air Molo was overrun by treasure hunters and media personalities, all enamored with the idea of a hundred year, old buried treasure, but instead of seeing them as competitors stark decided to use the situation to his advantage, he hired security and setup a tent near the public property around the Saltwater Lake. He advertised a treasure hunting weekend. In late summer of two thousand one people paid him feed dig near where he'd I found the gold. Unsurprisingly the event was a media sensation a local paper. The citizen dubbed it the biggest treasure hunt in South African history. In the first few hours, fortune seekers found a few Krueger pounds buried in the earth close to the lake. This whip the remaining treasure hunters into a frenzy, they all eagerly kept digging each hoping to strike it rich, but after two more days of searching, no more coins were found. The rest of the treasure seekers left amyloid disappointed. Ethel stark sold his forty two Krueger pounds and left the mystery behind. But he couldn't shake the feeling that there were even more Kruger coins out there somewhere. The area around Amolo had been scoured and searched, and only four thousand coins had been found most of them by the Kelly family, which suggests that the rest of the treasure is still out there over a million gold coins, but skeptics have pointed out some holes in stark's accounts and Duquesne's. There may be more to the story, and maybe Kruger's millions weren't on the Veldt at all. Perhaps. They weren't even in South Africa because they were at the bottom of the ocean. Up Next, we investigate whether the treasure sank or if it ever existed at all and now back to the story. After a few Kruger coins were unearthed in the South African Veldt. Many suspected that the rest of the missing treasure was buried out in the plains. The Kelly's a family of Zulu. Supposedly found much of the treasure and revealed the story to a white businessman named Athol stark in nineteen ninety, nine. But there are some elements of the Kelly's story that don't add up. Stark found founded strange that they objected to his wife, taking a picture of the coins and hadn't even let them handle them, and then there was the stunt with the witch doctor. Maybe, his guide hit insisted on bringing a companion because he distract star. After all star hadn't gotten a good look at the unearth treasure, because he'd been so focused on the witch doctors elaborate divination ritual. It's possible that the Kellys were running an elaborate scam. With stark as a go between they hope to con- collectors into buying fake gold, then vanished stark, allegedly earned a forty two Krueger Pound Commission for.

"Or rather several someone else's. The first were apparently a pair of Afrikaner brothers who ran a cattle farm near Amolo a South African city about one hundred and forty miles from Pretoria and right in the middle of the belt. In nineteen twenty one, the brothers were in dire financial straits, but that was about to change. Digging an irrigation ditch, they happened upon a box filled to the brim. With Krueger Pounds. The brothers immediately retired saying they'd receive an inheritance from Uncle Paul. Over the next few decades, a series of homesteaders in the veld inexplicably amassed mysterious fortunes. Many struggled to put food on their Table One day, but the next they could suddenly afford herds of sheep and cattle. Nearly all of them live near where Fritz Duquesne had reportedly hidden Kruger's millions in the veld close to a saltwater lake outside of the town of Amarillo. Nobody at the time looked into this strange financial boom, but in retrospect it rings suspicious. It's natural to assume. The homesteaders had uncovered Kruger's gold. But their fines represented only a fraction of the missing one point five million pounds. These were small psalms enough to make the finders comfortable, but not enough to raise eyebrows at the time. It stood to reason that much of Kruger's gold remained hidden in the belt that was certainly the thinking of Afrikaner H J lessing in nineteen, forty seven. Blessings father had been a soldier in the second Boer War. Before he died in battle, he'd gifted. To his son. Hand stitched into the cover was a treasure map. For years lessing had been skeptical of the map and it's directions to a hidden treasure. But now that he was getting older, he finally decided to investigate. He reeled in a friend, and they followed the maps instructions driving a region close to the border of Swaziland. As they drew near the indicated spot. They stopped the car and got out. They walked several paces carrying a spade, a pick and the map still sewn into the Bible. Hit, what appeared to be the spot, the pair began digging. Suddenly lessons pick struck something metallic. After. Pause he and his friend redoubled their efforts a few frantic minutes of sweaty digging later, they hauled up a heavy box. When they dusted it off, their jaws fell open. It was an old ammunition box filled with decomposing bank notes and coins. All bearing the face of Paul Kruger lessing deposited his precious fines with a bank and you'll Hannah's burke. He told the newspaper of his newfound fortune. An amount he said could buy several motorcars. The press was thrilled. The Kruger millions had been found. However, there was a problem. Lessons Fortune was nowhere near the one point five million pounds. Maybe he'd found a separate isolated cash that his father had secretive away or maybe the Kruger millions had been spread out over separate sites, including those found by the earlier. If that's the case. It's supported by another treasure fine about twenty years later in the nineteen sixties. A family of Zulu farmworkers whom will call the Kelly's spied some white treasure hunters digging on their employer's land. Curious they waited for the diggers to head off to church, then investigated. The, Kelly's were astounded to find thousands of Kruger pounds. They hurriedly fetched every container. They had cans, jars, pitchers and filled them all with the precious coins. However, they realized that they had a problem on their hands. Not only did. They have a week claim to gold found on their employer's land, but they were black people living under apartheid. So for the time being the Kelly's decided to hide the gold. In a strange twist of fate, an old man had recently passed away in their village. The Kelly family stashed their newfound wealth in his fresh grave. and not a moment too soon because the white treasure hunters soon found out that someone had disturbed their dig site. Fuming with rage, they stormed the townships searching for the robbers. The down. And threatened everyone they saw. However, no one would tell them anything about the hidden gold. Incensed. The white men grabbed the Kelly's daughter. They took her outside and publicly whipped her in the middle of the town. But even in the face of brutality, no one would talk. The treasure hunters left seething, though the Kelly's attackers were never punished. They also never saw an ounce.

"British captivity once and his guerrilla. Lloyd's had earned him the nickname the Black Panther of the Veldt, perhaps, that's why he was allegedly tasked with transporting the Kruger millions to safety. According to Kane and other eye-witnesses, the gold was removed from the Transvaal meant while the British were marching on Pretoria boere soldiers, loaded wagon loads of Kruger pound coins onto a train bound from Mozambique, the train set off saving the treasure from Britain's clutches until Duquesne got word that there might be British soldiers along the track ahead. The route was no longer safe. The train came to a stop, and the gold was unloaded and placed into wagons. Duquesne led the wagon train out into the plains, accompanied by a squadron of four soldiers and a few of us. But, due to the sensitivity of the mission, Duquesne didn't tell the porter's with the wagons carried, but he couldn't keep the secret for long. The curious soldiers investigated their cargo and discovered a massive fortune right at their fingertips. Gold fever soon overtook the boars soldiers loyalty to their overrun country. They scheme to steal Kruger's millions for themselves. One night the desperate soldiers snuck up on Duquesne's bedroll, one of the assailants Duro knife and stabbed Duquesne while he slept, but the blade didn't hit. It slid through what felt like empty cloth? The shocked attacker lifted the blankets revealing nothing beneath. Duquesne had stopped his bedroll, the real duquesne stood ready in the darkness rifle in hand. He fired. His would be assassins killing them. The gunshots awoke the other soldiers and the native porters confused. They attack each other. When the dust settled only two of the soldiers, Duquesne and his personal porters were still alive. Duquesne realized they could go no further, so he ordered the quarters to kill the remaining soldiers and bury the gold. They hid the treasure in a cave near the South African town of Air, Molo and were sworn to secrecy. Duquesne allegedly bribed the porters with oxen, so they wouldn't try to take the gold for themselves. He determined that if Transvaal won the war, he could simply dig up the gold and return to Pretoria as a war hero, but if they lost, he'd come back and claim it for himself. The landmarks should have made it easy enough to find the city of Amolo the cave and a nearby Saltwater Lake in the meantime duquesne disguised himself as a British officer and vanished leaving the treasurer out in the planes, waiting to be found.

Toward the end of the second Boer War in one thousand nine hundred South African President Paul Krueger hoarded the Transvaal Republic's gold minting as many new coins as possible. He wanted to keep one point five million pounds in gold out of British hands, and allegedly dispatched a man named Fritz Duquesne to bury the treasure in the South African Veldt, when the boars lost the war, Duquesne vow to return and take the wealth for himself, but it wasn't meant to be in one thousand nine hundred one he was captured by British forces. He was held in a series of prison camps until nineteen o two when he managed to pose as an American and escape. But his life remained colorful. Later Duquesne moved to the United States and became President Roosevelt's shooting instructor, but in nineteen fourteen, he immigrated to Germany to fight for the Axis powers in World War One. And by the time World War Two rolled around. He was a fully-fledged Nazi spy, but while Duquesne rubbed elbows with presidents and shape the course of world events. He never made it back to South Africa. He died in nineteen, fifty, six, leaving his porters as the only people who knew the true location of the gold. Whether, the porter's ever return for the gold unknown, but a series of reports from Duquesne's lifetime suggests they didn't and that wild duquesne was spying for the Nazis. The gold may have been uncovered by someone else..

"When the British took over the Transvaal Republic's capital, Pretoria in the summer of nineteen hundred, they expected to find a national treasury full of gold, however, a massive quantity of transvaal coins estimated to be worth at least one point. Five million pounds at the time was unaccounted for. The missing trove became known as the Kruger millions. There are three prevailing theories about the fate of Kruger's gold. The most popular is that it was buried somewhere in the veld, the wide South African plains. However the specifics of where and win, the gold was buried very within each telling, but some theories extend beyond the Ville. Krueger may have put the gold on a boat bound for Switzerland where he fled before the end of the war, and somehow the treasure was lost, stolen or spirited away before reaching your. But others questioned whether the gold exists at all. They claim that the British simply made clerical errors in the chaos of war, and over estimated the size of Kruger Stash, but to determine the size of the treasure. We have to examine where it I came from. In Eighteen, ninety nine, South Africa was divided into many European colonies, but to South African Republic's maintained their independence, the Orange Free State and the Transvaal Republic, both were founded by Dutch farmers known as the Boers or Afrikaners. Dutch south. Africans remained independent until the British Empire seized control of South Africa in eighteen O six. The boers resented their new British rulers and rebel. Decades of political instability ensued while the boers fought for their freedom. The Afrikaner nations finally won their independence back in the eighteen fifties, and they defended it during the first Anglo Boer War of the eighteen eighties when they held back British advances. But not long after the Transvaal Republic discovered that their land was rich with gold in order to extract it. A massive mining industry sprung up seemingly overnight. With the influx of war, the republic grew its economy and infrastructure. This only made the British desire the Transvaal Republic's land more so in eighteen, ninety nine, the British Empire made a third attempt at conquering the Transvaal Republic they dispatched thousands of crown troops to South Africa. Though the Boris scored some early victories against the British, they were fighting an uphill battle, the British Empire had the numbers and the resources on their side so Transvaal's beloved President Stephanus Johannes, powerless, Krueger or Paul Kruger hatched desperate plan. He ordered his soldiers to engage in guerrilla warfare, using their knowledge of the local terrain to Fox their foes, the British responded by arresting the families of suspected Borba Lls. It quickly became apparent that the Brits match the Afrikaners in every way including cruelty. As. It became clear that the British crown would retake South Africa. Transvaal advisers pressured President Kruger to destroy the nation's gold mines that way Britain couldn't sees them. But Kruger refused instead he redoubled the extraction efforts. He was going to process as much gold as he could. Before the British could get their hands on. As the war raged on in the south minors shipped massive quantities of gold north to the mint in Pretoria. They issued millions of coins each worth one South African pound. Every single one had the face of Paul Kruger stamped on the front. But even as the capital amassed well, the war effort flagged. The boars lost battle after battle. It wasn't long before the British were marching on Pretoria and closing in. On the mint. On May Twenty Ninth Nineteen Hundred President Kruger saw the writing on the wall. He fled the city by train. As the seventy four year old made his escape Pretoria surrendered. June fifth the capital was under under British control, but when Field Marshal Frederick. Roberts surveyed his victory. He realized the retreating government had gotten the last laugh. When the British took the Transvaal meant they noticed a large sum of gold was missing from the Treasury. Initially, the invaders estimated that eight hundred thousand South African pounds were gone based on the gold mine production logs they'd seized, but after retailing the amounts, the missing treasure totaled roughly one point five million pounds in gold coins. That's worth about two hundred million dollars today. Nobody was entirely sure what happened to the well, but the most obvious answer was President Kruger had taken it. Though he had fled to Switzerland Kruger's exiled government continued to wage a guerrilla war, an effort that was perhaps funded by the missing treasure. The second Boer war as it would come to be known raged on for another two years. The British employed a scorched earth policy, their troops sabotaged railroads destroyed farms, and even through civilians into racially segregated concentration camps, but throughout this oppression. The story of the Lost Gold bolstered the Boras morale. It was the one last piece of their country that the British Empire couldn't touch. Unfortunately the harsh battle tactics ultimately crushed the bore resistance, and the British Empire fully annexed both the Free State of Orange and the Transvaal Republic in Nineteen Oh two. But in spite of their decisive victory, something still eluded the empires reach cougars gold. They simply couldn't locate it. In spite of their continued destruction of the countryside, allegedly Kruger had told the people of the Transvaal Republic that if the British won the war, he berry all the coins in the Veld, the wide open plains of South Africa. That way his people had a shot at reclaiming their wealth. But hiding one point, five million pounds in gold coins is no small task. Which means Krueger probably had help. His guerrilla forces new the landscape and may have stashed the treasure in the veld. In fact, a spy named Fritz you bear duquesne claimed to have personally buried the gold and Duquesne's claims. Bring us to our first theory, the Kruger. Millions are buried in the veld. Fritz Duquesne was a captain in the bore army. He was handsome, quick, witted charming, and could talk his way out of any situation. He'd already escaped from.

"Self insights roadblocks and detours on the path to knowing myself. The there was something in the book that just cracked me up. Which you don't normally get in an academic book Your special and it turns out now. Most of us are not special and we are wholly unaware of that. We've been told MOST OF OUR LIVES. How specially are tell us why so few of us are actually special. Well the problem is that Well if you look at the complete person each of us is special but if you put us in any situation or any circumstance where most mostly going to act like everybody else. Most of us are average. Most of us are average. Most of us are typical In any specific circumstance so if you aggregate all that all of who we are together we yeah. We are a special but when it comes to specific situations no or not special and so what that does leave people with. Though I is a people do have this idea that they are unique that they are exceptional and as a consequence. They can't yes. I'm just doing the check boxes. Yup Right of course absolutely and so what that means is that It turns out people have a good rough understanding of human nature. I'M NOT GONNA say it's perfect. That's by work but they do have a good understanding of human nature. The mistake they make is that they think they stand outside that nature that they are different. They're special that they're special. So for example we've done studies we asked There's going to be a food drive at your campus Let's say in a month. We'll you contribute to it And what percentage of people contribute to it? They're pretty good at nailing. The percentage of people on their campus are going to contribute to the food. Drive the rather good. These sort of figure at the situation is they can think about their experience. They come up with a good answer and that answer turns out to be right but when we asked them. Okay what are you GONNA do? Are you going to contribute? They way over estimate how much they're going to do the right thing. They're going to do the good thing that they're going to do the social thing Basically because they understand how the situation external forces will Prompt people to donate into not donate but they think they stayed outside those forces for them. It's just simply a decision. Do I want to donate or not and a lot of people want to donate so. Yeah I'm going to donate it. Turns out when the time comes. No they're subject to all these external forces that push against donation as was pushed for donation. So they they turn out to be typical just like everybody. Else so let. Let's talk about a related topic Again from the book about moral fortitude. You tell the story about being on radio show Around the time of the Clinton Peach Mint. I must trump impeachment. But this is this is twenty plus years ago The radio host goes off on a tirade about infidelity. And the more if you and failings of other people and you had at your fingertips a bunch of research about how everybody's expectations of their own moral superiority sort of fit into the dunning Kruger framework. We think we're much better at that than we really are. Oh that's true. That is because when you move to the moral domain the domain People definitely have this holier than thou attitude. I won't do it but other people will do it. If it's bad for example I would never Cheat on my beloved but other people of course are going to cheat on their beloved And it turns out. We did a number of studies down infidelity. But rather will you vote We'll be charitable you trade Will you Obey traffic laws For example and it turns out that people wildly overestimate themselves. That is a overestimate. How moral ethical and good they will be relative to what they think about other people and they also overestimate how moral and good. They're going to be relative to the reality When we actually Test either them or an equivalent group of people so The question for us is people tend to believe they're morally superior. Are they making a mistake about other? People are being too cynical about other people. Are they being too optimistic about the self and it turns out to be to my surprise and this is completely the reverse of what I expected people wrong about themselves exactly because they think they're special But so so. They're not being cynical about the rest of humanity. They pretty much have them nailed. They just think they're better than everybody. That's right with maybe one or two exceptions People are surprisingly accurate About the general rate about human nature in general how other people are GonNa be buffeted around by external forces? They just think they're for themselves are exempt from those forces. All right so we have. Meta cognition issues when we're trying to do a specific task that requires skills. There's a similar issue with our own sense of self an ethics and moral turpitude What other areas are subject to the Dunning Kruger effect? Well what else there might be. But is that everything is in no thoughts in action and everything else is leftover. No there's also the future if you think so people are also over optimistic about their prospects if you will really oh absolutely That is People really underestimate how long it's GONNA take to complete projects The underestimate Or how long it's GonNa take for their business to be profitable They When they're thinking about the future they tend to base their planning and their ideas on the most optimistic scenario rather than the most pessimistic scenario or maybe even the most realistic scenario so There are things we missed not only in terms of competence and character but also about our prospects. So how do we explain that I could imagine? I could concoct a lovely narrative tale as to why having an optimism bias is good for the species. Even if you're the guy from cave seventy three that doesn't come back from the mammoth ons. Everybody else has foreign meat for the winter. Or is this just a crazy narrative story or is there some evolutionary component to a well there isn't evolutionary component to it in a D and adaptability component to it? But it's complicated so the fact that people commit to things far too optimistically really does create those things. I mean Books written Businesses are developed movies are made Even though the people who start them out did far more work and are now far more depressed and tired than they ever imagined they would be at the end of those projects but If they had only been prepared for how long it was GONNA TAKE. They probably would come up with a better product. A better business in a better book So things get made But people will fail or they won't produce really what they're capable of producing very interesting all of which leads to one big question which is why do we seem to make the same errors in judgment. Is it something about the way we learn? Is it something about our fragile egos? Why as a species are we unable to get by some of these fairly obvious flaws? Well I think there are two things involved. One comes from the holier than thou work. Witches were overweight in our intentions and the powerful personality to produce things that that's part of what's going on when the power of our personality represent Becau- well I will do this because I want to do this and I That is part of. That's something that we overestimate. The other is the competence ankle. Which is we really. Don't know what we don't know and when Rumsfeld unknown unknowns the world is filled with unknown unknowns and And we don't know well not only do. We not know them. We don't pay attention to the fact that we don't know them. I mean too many people out there the idea of unknown unknowns still novel concept But it is something that Run now they don't know what they don't know but there is a lot of work showing that people just don't pay attention to what they don't know when they're making predictions or when they're planning things out they don't sit back and ask. Okay what is it that I don't know here? What Still Open What are the possibilities? That I'm not considering only that am I considering the fact that there are unknown unknowns and I should be planning for that possibility so you mentioned earlier planning i. I saw something kind of interesting around January nineteenth of this year. That's the date. When most people's New Year's resolutions fail does that sound remotely plausible. Or is it just Something else from the Internet surprised that our resolutions last that long. Oh really no kidding. So so why that raises the next question if we have all the best intentions and we want to fill in the blanks. Stop Smoking Exercise Lose Weight. Whatever it is. Why is it that when we make these sorts of plans all as a group on the same date every year? I can't imagine why would that not work well. It doesn't work because the world is waiting for US. In some sense it does have is unknown unknowns and it does have external forces that are going to defeat us and what we tend to do is we tend to focus on our plans. What am I going to do What are my intentions? What are the steps that I'm going to take what we really should do is interview? People tried to do this before and find out what the real difficulties are. They're going to be many difficulties that we haven't anticipated They're going to be many difficulties that we don't know about And not only that. There are probably tricks strategies tactics plans. We can make that. We wouldn't think of but someone else has thought of them and they actually work so we actually consulted with people who've Travel the road before us. We would do a much better job. I think anticipating The difficulties we have lionhead as well as being better armed with strategies that have a better chance of success all right so let me push back on that a little bit. The Diet Industry is like a twenty six billion dollar sector of the economy and they all have the magic Bullet and yet everybody in this country seems to be increasingly overweight Diabetes is a problem. There are all these weight related issues if we could speak to other people and have that conversation who have been successful. How does that work given the vast numbers of people Who Need Assistance? Losing Weight That's a very good question by the way evolutionary. This is a very novel task for. Having extra weight is a good thing if you have a shorter lifespan. We now live beyond that APP. That adaptation I think cholesterol was a big problem. Ten thousand years ago. That's right and probably wasn't a big problem. Even up to one hundred years ago getting calories was the up to very very recently So as a species we are dealing with a very novel task In trying to lose weight I think that There are some common sense that People can do But one of the things they can do is reset two things. The first is. What's a realistic Outcome in terms of losing weight But also having more realism in terms of how much effort And how much time is going to take to get there for example And also into things more in terms long term as opposed to the short term. I mean a lot of people think. How do I lose weight this month? Now the question is. How do you keep the weight? How'd you lose weight and keep the weight off for years and years and years But I think as a certainly society I think it's taking awhile for the collective wisdom to form because it does turn out to be a particularly difficult task so my I go for an annual physical every year my gp is also a cardiologist. And he's one of these old school doctors when they're don't the tests you go into their office you sit down and you have a conversation and we go through everything. It's all good and he says you have any questions for me. I'm like yeah I'd like to drop a few pounds. What do you suggest? And he very conspiratorially looked over each soul shoulder and then lean forward and whispered to me he less food and I'm like doc you know there's a giant industry who's whole purposes to not share that advice but it turns out to be good advice. Yes so eating a little less food. You can loosen wait. It's it's It's quite fascinating and yet it's hard to do than you would imagine then certainly than I imagined. No I think that's right. Well certainly in the United States. It's harder What I think is interesting now. This isn't psychology is. That's just my personal. Life is every so often spent time in Germany And I always lose weight in Germany without even trying. And why is that? Do you not like bratwurst and beer or Well a German cuisine is more than that not much more by the way I do more than that but it's all A lot of Schnitzel. When you don't know anything else to save choice It's a safe choice but I think most Well in Germany. The portions are small There the rest of the world portions of small. That's exactly right and that's an issue Most of the calories in Mueller conveyed by the sauce in the inevitable beer. You're going to drink right or the wind. You're going to drink There's also much more walking. Oh really bike riding. Yeah but can you walk off that many calories? I mean if you're Michael Phelps sure but for the rest of US. We're not putting in three hours a day of of sweating certainly true but if you just walk.

"Extra special guest this week. Is David Dunning? He is a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan where he focuses on the psychology underlying human misbelief. He is best known for his Nineteen Ninety nine study with colleague. Justin Kruger unskilled and unaware of it. How difficulties in recognizing one's own incompetence lead to self inflated assessments. Dunning Kruger showed that people who were the worst performers significantly overestimated. How good they were. He is also the author of the book. Self insight roadblocks and detours on the path to knowing yourself David dunning welcome to Bloomberg. It's a pleasure to be here. I have been looking forward to this conversation for a long time. I am a giant fan of your work and I have to start with a really simple question. What's the origin of the study? What led you to a thesis that we're really bad at self evaluation. Well if you're an academic You meet up with many students and you meet up with many colleagues who say outrageous things and you just have to wonder. Don't they know what they're saying is Let me say this diplomatically. Odd Suboptimal and over the years. I just was intrigued with finding out whether or not people knew when they were saying things that were outrageous. Were obviously wrong on the face of it and so One Day Justin Kruger. Walk in my office. Said he wanted to study with me. And I said why. Have this high High Risk Reward. Study to do it has to do with the question. I've often wondered about and so he did the first original series of studies and were astonished. At how little people who didn't know didn't know about how little they knew so. I was on the impression that most academics have a thesis in there some data supporting it and when they go out and test it they have a little confirmation bias and they see what they expected to see. You're saying you guys were just shocked by the results of the study. That's right. I mean we expected it to work because if you think about the logic of it has to work. The question was one of magnitude When a student was failing the course for example or giving them a pop quiz on grammar. did They have some inkling that they're performing really poorly and the answer was maybe a little but not much and they were missing their true performance level by a mile by mile. So so how much of this that? That really raises A number of questions. So I I love the phrase Meta cognition the ability to self evaluate your skill set and your findings essentially find that this is highly correlated with an underlying scale. Whenever I try and explain this to a layperson it's pro golfers. Know how good they aren't where the weaknesses in their games are amateurs have no idea that they're not remotely as good as they think they are. Is that a fair oh I'm a perfect example of this so when I go up golf I often end up in the in the rough night when I drive the ball and The nicely the ball going the rough night. Go out to find it later on. And I'm always over guessing how far the ball went in the rough fight about twenty thirty yards. And I know this yet every time I drive the ball into the rough. I'm looking in the wrong place So yeah I mean amateur. Golfers don't know such terms as course management for example There's a number of concepts and number ideas. They simply don't have available to them and as a consequence they think they're they're doing the best possible job when factors a whole realm of competencies. They don't know about. They're just wholly unaware of what they know. That's right so you begin the the nine thousand nine hundred nine paper with a amusing anecdote. Tell us about the Pittsburgh Bank robber McArthur wheeler well. Mcarthur wheeler was a Spirent a bank robber. Who decided to go out and rob but needed a disguise. And he had heard that if you rub your face with lemon juice it renders the face Fuzzy or even a of invisible to bank security cameras and so he actually did tested out. He actually rubbed his face with juice at home pointed a polaroid camera or whatever At at his face and then he wasn't there he missing. The camera is st invisible about. He thought he wasn't visible. He went out with no actual disguise rob to Pittsburgh area banks during the daytime was immediately caught on security cameras. those tapes broadcast on the news and he himself was caught before the eleven o'clock news hour and he was incredulous because as he said. I wore the juice. I wore the juice so Thus ended his career of these sorts of mistakes. We make all the time we think we we have a strategy. That's going to work and to our surprise the world has different Lesson for us to learn so. Meta cognition sometimes. Looks a little bit like overconfidence. How similar or different are the two well Meta? Cognition is a number of things. A number of skills that underlie Being able to evaluate your judgments Evaluate your decision so sound often. It's overconfidence usually it's overconfidence It can be under confidence thinking. You can't do something that you can do It might be over-confidence her under conference but does your confidence rise and fall with the accuracy of your judgement. So is there a relationship Whether or not your conferences is a speed dominator that overstates where understates how well You're doing But there it also is knowing how to make a judgment Knowing when to stop thinking in start acting so knowing when There's a doubt that you really should be following up on. So over-confidence is a phenomenon. I think lies within a whole family of skills that you can call medic cognition which is basically skill in knowing how to evaluate your thinking and control your thinking quite fascinating. Let's talk a little bit about your nineteen ninety nine paper unskilled and unaware of it. This blew up in someone on most famous psychology papers. Ever when when you in Kruger were writing this. Did you have any idea that it was going to be this explosive No I thought it was going to have trouble being published because it actually has a unusual piece of work given the usual structure of paper in the Journal wheeled submitted to so the fact that it blew up was a big surprise the fact that it got published was also big surprises very very happy because internally. I thought it was a good piece of work but I didn't know if the world was going to agree so I I've seen your work misstated in a variety of ways. I'm sure you have also the one that I notice. All the time is stupid. People don't know they're stupid and while that could very well be true that is not the basic theme of your research. Is it no We were very clear from the outset. That the dunning Kruger effect is something that can visit anybody at any time. That is each of us. Has our own pockets of Incompetence and we just don't know when we wander into them so it Often the one mistake that people make is thinking about the dunning. Kruger effect is about them. Those as you say stupid people out there and the paper really was really about us and our cells and being Vigilant about the fact that sometimes we're GONNA wander into our own little personal disasters not knowing that a disaster is imminent so people trying to explain. Dunning Kruger. Themselves are suffering from the dunning Kruger. Oh in many different ways. So I if you're two different ways that People get it wrong. I is to is to think about other people and it's not about me The second is thinking that Incompetent people are the most confident people in the room. That's not necessarily true. That shows up in our data but they're usually less confident than the really competent people. But not that much but the real thing that I think is fascinating and this is only half five years. Is that if you google. Images of the dunning Kruger affect the charts. The chart well we didn't those aren't our charts so you didn't do mount stupid or the Valley of despair. No we did not that. It has nothing to do whatsoever with her. Ninety-nine paper or anything that we did subsequently and Do note of that. I I think it's it's delicious. That a lot of people think of the dining Krueger fact. They're talking about the dunning Kruger fact. They're videotaping toxin joining perfect. And what they're talking about is not the dunning Kruger effect They're suffering the effect about the effect itself. that's the first the second note though is given this situation we did face a dilemma in the lab. How do we fix this? How do we correct this? And so This is true in part We decided the most efficient ethical thing to do to steal the idea from the Internet Because the other problem with the idea that not being done in Kruger factors. It's it's more interesting so but we still the idea tested. It turns out that Mount Stupid Valley of despair a plateau V- enlighten time. Course if people see that we pretty much get that Pattern as we pays people through a completely novel task so so Internet is right so in other words and I'm I'm intrigued and fascinated by this. You never put out a chart. I always assumes that that Chart Hata come from your data because what are people just throwing lines and making it up and ps it intuitively. Looks right you would assume hey when so I play. Tennis only started recently to less than ten years ago. And when you start out and you don't hit the ball and you feel like if some control and you have some skill and and then and you're working your way up that mount stupid and then when you actually start to develop some skill not that I really have. But I'm better than it was five years ago. You realize Oh. I didn't know what the Heck I was doing. Just Ball and getting lucky when it catches the tape and all of a sudden you realize. Oh I'm way down this and and then you continue playing you get a little better in a little better. I don't know if this is over rationalization but it intuitively seems to make sense slow. Not only does it intuitively makes sense. It turns out to make sense And in twenty eighteen paper with Carmen Sanchez. We were able to demonstrate that Basically what happens is when you start a task and what we did is we had people. We put people. In a post apocalyptic road where they had to without supervision but with feedback diagnose who was infected with Zombie disease. Hoping that that wasn't something that people had experience with And basically what happens is if you're a beginner you start out way at the beginning. Being appropriately cautious. You really don't know what you're doing and you knew it but the problem is is that you have a few successes. They're probably due to luck than skill. Do you think you have it That is people Arrive at a theory Based on data that which is far too early far too sparse and far too unreliable. But I think I got it and then the next phase they have to go through is realizing Oh that theory really doesn't work And so we've been able to track that into show that In a number of studies So the Internet is right I'm very pleased with its intuition of this one But it is a little bit odd to get credit for an insight that we never had. But we're very happy to steal so essentially when you run the data showing The correlation between skill and Ability to self evaluate you end up with a Chart. That looks in his two thousand. Eighteen to paper looks remarkably similar to all the various pop. Psychology announced stupid charts. That are out there as you gain. Experience you. Unfortunately start with a burst of overconfidence. I got this. You know you don't and then Experience basically is correcting your Flattering impression of your skill as time goes on until at some point. Learning stops because of Experiences not new or learning does experience human limits but that That is the pattern by the way. If anybody flies airplane the they perfectly understand this pattern. It's not beginning pilots. Who are the most dangerous? It's pilots. Let's say six hundred eight hundred Flight Hours They.
Studio 360 Extra: Aural History: How Studio 360 Got Started
"Invited the rock the World Wrestling Federation champion to speak at the Republican National Convention. Pupil sock it to me. I became an official painter. I don't express political desires in my novels. I just tell story. Hello I'm Chris Anderson and this is studio three six. That's how studio three sixty began. Its first episode on November. Four two thousand just before we elected George W Bush and we all learned what a hanging Chad was my special guest today in Studio. Three sixty is the artist. Barbara Kruger. Who will talk with us about politics and power in movies and music and even in her own art? I make art about the collision of my days and nights with the culture that has constructed and contains me all that and more coming up in studio three sixty from WNYC and PRI public radio international originally produced out of WNYC. Here in New York. The show is all about the cool but complicated and sometimes strange ways that art touches our lives two decades later. That mission hasn't changed. Even if the people making the show have come and gone I'm Jocelyn Gonzalez executive producer of studio three sixty but I was still wet behind the ears associate producer when the show debuted two decades ago. I was away from the show for about ten years before returning to the staff in two thousand seventeen so as the show draws to a close sadly after twenty years I turned to some of my friends from the formative years of studio three sixty for their impressions. Could we create these beautiful stories that represent all sorts of interesting things that are going on in the country in terms of arts and then have Kurt sit with some of that? He was comfortable with and talk about them. That's Julie Bursting who was executive producer of studio three sixty when the show launched and who wrote the studio three sixty book called spark in two thousand eleven and this is Carrie Hillman who was our first senior producer and is now the executive producer at story car. At the time there had been a lot of magazines shows and it was a way for us to sort of do something different and fresh and it was like a a really creative solution to like a lot of really boring magazine. Formatted programming so I was like really game to try to figure it out. We also had two assistant producers. I'm Michelle Seagull. I started at studio three sixty as a assistant producer. In September of two thousand. I stayed through twenty thirteen as a pretty Sir and I'm now the managing producer of Sleet Studios I'm Tall Milad and I started at St Three Sixty as an intern in the year. Two Thousand and I was there until two thousand fifteen When I left I was senior producer of the show for about ten years before that and I now work at Pushkin Industries Heading up development also on staff during the early days of the show was producer and technical director. Steve Nelson Steve's now a programming executive at NPR Johnson. Do you remember what the working title was when we got there? Oh yeah hot ticket right which is first of all a terrible name and doesn't get to any of the big ideas that studio three sixty does as a name but secondly this is sort of in the relatively this was during the post dotcom boom and someone typed in hot ticket dot com into a website and it was an adult site for general audiences for sure. That was the end of hot ticket as a name every week. Studio three sixty we explore. One big idea in-depth. Today we look at the intersections of art and medicine. The idea of studio three sixty or an art show for public radio had been kind of kicking around for a long time. People were on the ground producing pieces. Trying to sort of see what would stick Eventually they brought Julie Burstein and she had this idea of like putting on pieces that sort of built on one another in having an artist or somebody else react to each piece. We started calling it a through line which was just an idea that we would carry through the show and I think the idea of having a theme came from we have to have some structure in order inside it to be able to play. The idea was that Kurt would open the show with a monologue is always delightful to look back and see that exotic bits of civilization. John Ashcroft was a senator his most celebrated crusade a failed crusade for some years. Now one of my hobby horses has been the blurring lines between news politics crime or and entertainment and then he would have a person in the studio with him and then we would present pre recorded pieces to play for this person. I try in my work to speak to the human in US and That human end to bear kind of witness and in enabled react to it. That's really fascinating That makes me think of this. Yes we looked a lot at the degeneration of people's memories and one of the pieces of research we discovered is precisely why I found listening to that piece so fascinating so it would give us an opportunity. Say something that took them off of their typical talking points that gave us an insight into the way they think their personality It also added some depth. I think to the the pieces themselves because you can't do everything in five minutes and so maybe you have to like leave something on the cutting room floor but you can resurrect it a little bit with with the like well-placed Kirk question so I thought it was really cool. I loved gathering stories from really disparate places and putting them next to each other and then talking about them. It was just so much fun. Do you remember a point when you realize it was working? I have to say. I think that first Shakespeare show because it was a whole show bringing Shakespeare up-to-date but we had Neil Gaiman Willie's just grumbling about the fact that he's a crappy writer and the San man the eponymous Lord of the rings who happens to be in this up goes over to will and offices deal are you will shakespeare. I have we met. We have but men forget in waking hours. And you and Steve or maybe it was Steve. That incredible intro He started it with Scharzenegger's hang on not to be not to be tied in the phase of man when in disgrace with fortune and men's on have we hear. Hello I'm curt Anderson and Mrs Studio Three six. It was so hilarious and it was just. It was like okay. We got it this works. I'm Peter Clowney and I was studio three six I Adler and these days I live in Saint Paul and I'm vp of content strategy for stitcher. It's a struggle sometimes to do a show. That has a theme I approach. That idea would caution now if someone wants to do a show that theme like to say like remember. It's got multiple pieces in it. You're going to have the fifth favourite piece about Gardens in this episode. But it's true that like building on the ideas across an hour is like really meaningful. My name is Eric Linski. I started as an intern. In two thousand four became assistant producer and then decided to become a contributing reporter of which I was to studio three sixty through the beginning of two thousand sixteen and I am now the host and creator of the podcast imaginary worlds. Yeah I remember this one episode where they had Madeleine Albright the through line theme was democracy and so she's sitting in the studio with Kurt and then one of the pieces was about American idol. Which was the hottest thing back? Then and they were talking about how people were taking American idol democracy far more seriously than actual presidential elections. Have you ever had a chance to see American idol? Well I actually have and I've been pretty depressed As I am by television generally these days which seems to be going to the lowest common denominator and I. I don't like the word Elitism as we kind of lost me on this last segment of him and it was really funny here. Man Albright come out of that piece. And what do you think of that? She was not too thrilled with the peace to quality that piece but what she was hearing in the piece. I'm Derek John. I was a producer and editor on the show from about two thousand four to two thousand twelve ish and since then I've done a whole bunch of work in the podcast world but I am now currently an executive producer of the how to with Charles Duhig podcasts. At slate when the theme through line shows worked man they were amazing. I mean it was like we had set this high bar and they were so hard to pull up when they clicked and everything fit together. It was truly fantastic radio and it was hard I would say we had some shows that weren't successful and that's actually what led to having to change one. Really terrible through line. Thematic show was fish the fish just literal fish in the sea. Animals really jumped the shark on that one

Imposter Syndrome with UX Designers Amy Silvers and Lori Cavallucci
"Imposter syndrome. Let us know a bit more. About what made you want to do that. Talk at the summit. And what the title responses you got from that for me. It's something that I've grappled with for years. It's just been something. I never knew what it was until I started started reading about it. And I'm like wow that's me there's actually something for what I've been experiencing and amy and I've talked a a lot about it over the years. She happens to have been she. She cringes when I say this but she happens to have been my my mentor. Who helped push me? I needed someone to push me. I was holding myself back and So it's just it's it started off basically as a self study like anything in psychology allergy research. So it's The interest came from my own Difficulties suffering with it through the years. Yeah I think Laurie and I we're had both been going through some career bumps and I had maybe done a little bit more Applying for jobs than and she had because she'd been a freelancer for a long time and she was. She was sort of looking around for things to apply to but she kept kept saying things like well. I don't have I don't I haven't used Jack sure. And they want actor. I don't use this software tool and they wanted I don. I kept telling her you know nobody meets all of the qualifications for job. Just push yourself and go ahead and apply for things even if they're a little above your level and we talked about how much we both felt like frauds like complete frogs doing that kind of thing like we weren't really qualified to be applying for any you X.. Jobs in spite of both having at that point you know several years experience at least east in the field and it kind of grew from there. Exactly actually James. Was the one talking to me James About doing this. Show show about imposter syndrome for over a year now. I think he's probably close to two years. But even even before you mentioned it to me the first time and I actually didn't know there was a name for it because is when you described it and I realized Oh my God I feel that all the time. I didn't know there was a name for it. I mean I I remember I mean occasionally you get those for me anywhere. Ah Kitchen you get those moments where people come out and say. I remember one situation where I was working at a clients and we're having a conversation Near the coffee machine and and somebody just brought up the fact that they were feeling nervous about doing a particular task in this project and the conversation then snowball pretty quickly and everyone is four. I think four of his run this coffee machine all of US basically end up saying to each other. Well I think we all feel so you like that a lot of the time I feel like we. We were not good enough to do these jobs or not qualified to do them. Or we're not going to be a deliver what's expected of us and you get those moments where you realize that Well I think probably everyone has their moments of feeling like an impostor and a fraud. Yeah so what's what's what's really going on. Here I mean is this special for the field of U. X. because it seems like the US especially as a field where there are so many new things like you were saying saying that there are so many tools we need to know about. There's so many things. Do I know about search engine optimization analytics as well we need to care about that how much do I Actually need to know to be a good designer and that sort of of course contribute to that feeling of being an impostor not having that holistic view of just just everything that you need to know about but has imposter syndrome been around always and as soon as something. We've been afraid to talk about. Yeah I we can talk a little bit about the origin of the term. Laurie cover that. It was originally identified as a phenomenon among women women in academia. PhD's tenured professors. Who at some fundamental level just doubted? They were even intelligent much less qualified to do the work they were doing. But I think that was mostly putting a name to do something that that certainly every professional experiences and probably every human experiences or most humans experience. It's actually the ones who don't experience it. But you have to worry about And there's a name for that syndrome to it's called the denning in Kruger Affect people who actually overestimate their qualifications and their own intelligence but but imposter syndrome. I think is very common among people who are high achieving I can talk a little bit about whether it's whether it's particularly prevalent in you X.. And and hypothesize about why But I'll let Lori give a little background on on the original the whole the origin of the syndrome and the naming of it. It was first diagnosed in high achieving women by two women. They realized that it's something that high-achieving women in this university where feeling and they did the study now. What we know now is that it's not just women that suffer from limit it's women and men it's It tends to be people who who really are high achievers and and have high expectations of of themselves and have achieved a lot that tend to feel it the most and This was in the late seventies and that was the first diagnosis and it was called called impostor phenomenon and it it really was It wasn't well known it wasn't publicized and I think As amy I work exploring this. We found so many articles people were just starting to come out about it and talk about it because it's something that they had been feeling and I realize that it's not just them. It's other people's well. Yeah and we actually did. A survey nonscientific survey of people in the US community and the percentages of of people. Who agreed with all or part of the statements that we posed About feeling like an impostor in particular situations Not only feeling like like you're not qualified but also feeling like you're going to be discovered at any minute you're going to fall on your face and everyone who's going to figure out you know what the you've been getting away with Faking it all the time And we discovered that almost everybody is it's seventy and eighty percent on almost all the responses agreed with the statements and I it's a huge percentage jagger and and it it almost made me feel like you know if if everyone has imposter syndrome. How important is like is it something we should just sort of acknowledge and get on with our lives and just sort of tried to ignore it as best we can but I think they're also there are things that we can do to actively combat at that are probably a little healthier but it does it it makes you wonder a little you know everybody has it? Is that even really a syndrome or is it is part of being human part of being a relatively relatively successful human but I do think I think you X. poses kind of some unique challenges challenges for people who are prone to feeling like imposters. Because not only do we have all these different skills that were expected to have but nobody obt defines what that skill set is in the same way. No two people much less To companies or to hiring managers defined it did anything like the same way and we have all these sort of standards that were held to all the time. But the standards keep shifting and nebulous. And there's no way to say like in the talk. I give the example of architecture physical architecture I can look at a building that that frank gehry designed and say. That's a frank gehry building. But I can't look at Frank Juries website and say oh seven seven designed that website or for his digital presence or whatever I can't I can't point to anything there because there aren't really standards words or objective criteria there. We don't share our work that actively a lot of the time. So it's it's just kind of nebulous and again shifting all the time I remember I I think it's the guy who's behind future Web Design Conference series. WHO posted three or four years ago? He tweeted about you. Rex designed being a bullshit dot job title designer. and Oh okay then guess. I'll pack up my things and go home because you know my Dr is bullshit and we get stuff like that all the time you know you have to know how to do. You should never code All this stuff telling us how we should be. And if you're not doing this you're not really a UI designer and that makes it very hard into feel any sort of sense that you you have mastery over your your skills over your job.
Our 2020 Travel Wishlist
"Talking about our twenty twenty travel wishlist. And what what I said to you how. I was attacking this list this year. There's a few things that I did. We did one. We did not look back at our twenty nine thousand nine wishlist. We didn't want to do that and I didn't want to look back and say why can't put this on against I wanted this to be. These are the place to go. I don't even know what my twenty nine thousand nine lists was. There might might be some. My memory's not great so you guys probably can't remember it. I don't remember exactly and there is some method to the madness here. TRAV- have I was kind of having a hard time thinking of places that I wanted to go next year and we do have a lot of it planned out so that also was kind of you know it makes it a little harder because we're more organized with our travel plans but had here's what I looked at. I just said if if you had if someone said Hey. You've got two free weeks three weeks a month. Whatever some of these trips are long would be longer or shorter depending on how hard they are to get to and how far away? But but where would I want to go so again. I didn't try to think of this from a realistic perspective of Kenai actually get here in twenty twenty or will I be going here in two thousand twenty. That didn't play into in my decision at all. It was simply. What would I do if I could do? Obviously we have two kids now. That changed our travel plans. As you mentioned we're more organized than we plan stuff out so we kind kind of know places. We're going to go in two thousand twenty already so a lot of these Saying these are my this my wishes. I know I won't get to that's fine. Yeah it's more of a dreaming thing here ear to inspire ourselves to inspire you in create that wanderlust. Because you know sometimes I feel as though even because we're entrepreneurs resume we can go whenever we want and leaving we want. We do get bogged down a little bit in the everyday work life and then the planning of a trip which I know a lot of you can can relate to out there because planning is hard so we didn't want to think about that in factor that into this dream wishlist. WANDERLUST wanderlust. You I WANNA go. We're here to incite your Wunderlist for twenty twenty and I'm pretty excited about my list. I have to say I'm excited to know you this. When we do these lists we never talk ahead of time so I have no idea what we would like to hear from you so hit us up on social at extra pack of peanuts on Instagram? That's easiest way. Let us know what your Dream Twenty Twenty wishlist is. So let's dive right into one real last note. I guess though before we dive into it I actually was looking us a map of the world all the time when I'm trying to there's so many places I wanna go. I really wanted to go ever trying to narrow it down so I just look at Google Map I do too. That's funny and I was looking at map. I scrolled over in Asia. I scrolled over over and got into Europe and American I kept scrolling. You how you could on Google maps you could just keeps growing. It just shows you you know it goes back to Asia and I literally sat out loud. That's it like. I went from Asia to Europe. And I'm like Oh yeah I just looked through the whole world so I just thought that was a funny anecdote. I there's obviously so many places you're going to be but it seems small when you're looking at it from such a bird's eye view that's right. Yeah I I was kind of feeling the same way especially when I was scrolling over Europe and I you'd love Europe and I was thinking we've been to almost every country in Europe. Where do we want to go? I do have some places in Europe. Don't worry all right well. Let's start with our honorable all mentioned as usual. You have to. I have to go ahead correct. So my first honorable mention is a place that we almost got to this year in Twenty nineteen and that is Charleston South Carolina because this city to me just seems like it exudes Southern American charm. It's beautiful historic. The architecture is just what you would imagine would be in a in a beautiful southern city and it just so happens to be on the coast which is always something that for me. If I'm if I'm glancing up at my list almost every single go place on my list. Somewhere in that country has a coastline off on purpose. When I'm just glancing up here at this you know I really I love love? Love the coast so to me Charleston. South Carolina is a place in the US. That I really WANNA visit. Because we've you've never been there and it's not even that far from Philadelphia but an incredible food always talk named and ranked as one of the top Foodie cities in America so Charleston in definitely. I'm glad you put on your list. It's going allow me to chance to bed. I mean it could have made the real list but I put it on the honorable mention. Because it's not is exotic as I like I like it's going to allow me to cheat all right my first honorable mention than what we'll get back to your second is we'll stay I'll stay in the US to domestically a New Mexico state that we'd never neither of us have ever been to place. We both really wanted to go. Just you know. We have not spent a lot of time in the American. Southwest definitely definitely a region of the country that that we have not seen near as much of as some other places in the US. And I've always wanted to get to New Mexico when we threw this out there you know L. A. couple months going podcast when we were talking about fall bus paces to fall Got Tons of feedback from you guys about Albuquerque. Santa Fe why we should go to New Mexico so so it is definitely on the list here so New Mexico and this seems like when we feasibly could get to. Obviously it's not near as far as some of the plates. We're GONNA talk about so New Mexico honorable honorable mention just for the fact that you said seems a little more realistic might actually go to in twenty twenty so not that. I don't want to all right. Let's get going and this the reason that you liked that I put Charleston on there. I almost put New Mexico on there. I feel like we talked about New Mexico last year on the on the twenty nineteen wishlist. I can't remember about own fall back with two weeks ago and then on our radar and we've both been wanting to go so awkwardly Charleston South Carolina. We're helping each other out so far on this list. Your last on my last article mention is on here only only because in the main list only because we have personally been there before and that is South Africa. Let me jump billionaire going there again. This is my running. Capetown is on my honor. Roll Okay for the same reason that we have it planned to go there. September twenty twenty to watch my mom. Interestingly enough in the field hockey World Cup she is on the US. Under sixty five or over sixty I forget which way they caught national team. She's the Golly. Maybe we'll win. MVP this year. I know you're listening. Mom You got to get in shape. Let's get better shape than I am. She's incredible and we are going to South Africa and we're going to keep town specifically we've been there before but I am so excited to go back as one of our favorite cities in the world. Also also the wine region Man When I was making this list a lot of my places are winds. And you're leading wine and coast go wrong. Oh Oh and Kruger National Park which is not near the coast. It's in northern South Africa. And I think that we're hoping to do a safari there in the National National Park. Would you be really exciting and I know that what is young. He'll be almost three by the time we go. It's a little young. I fry but I think he'll love it. Yeah Capetown and as you mentioned more broadly South Africa on my ro mentioned again. We are unless something happens. We are planning to be there. September into October twenty twenty twenty couldn't be more happy about that. That's our big couldn't like our beer couldn't be more happy. Couldn't be happier. That's our big trip. That's planned for twenty twenty. That's it's actually on the calendar so far so
Are Less Experienced People More Confident?
"He rain stuff lauren. Vogel Bam here with an episode from the archives for you back when our host one Christian Saker this is one. That's come up and I think all of our conversations and frustrations lately are less informed. Armed people more confident and if so why bring stuff. It's me Christian and Sager. If you're like most people you think you're very good at some things and are able to admit your less good at others. You probably think you're superbly-talented in one honor to areas and hey you may be right you try to be honest with yourself about your strong points and you're weak ones and you likely shake your head in pity at people you see as well. Oh stupid say things like. Why don't they understand that they're bad at doing stuff? Well there is an answer. But you're not gonna like it and this answer it doesn't just apply to people you think of as dumb it applies to everyone on earth including you and me. It's not a matter of intelligence necessarily a difficult fickle thing to measure but it is related to competence the ability to do something well in nineteen ninety nine psychologist named David Dunning and his Grad assistant didn't Justin Kruger tested. A group of students in several categories the ability to think logically to write grammatically and to spot. Funny Jokes folks. They also asked students to rate their skills in these categories. That is when they noticed something. Weird the people scoring below average on these tests were just incompetent in these categories. They also didn't know they were incompetent. And here's the kicker the less competent they were are the more competent. They ranked themselves. This is a phenomenon called illusory superiority this is a cognitive bias. Bias wherein people tend to rate their own abilities as above average multiple. Studies have proven this effect in everything from firearms to college. DEBATES AND MED students opinions of their interviewing skills. It doesn't seem to matter what specific skill were talking about. The less person knows about it the more likely they are to overestimate their knowledge. While dunning and Kruger popularized this effect in modern society. They weren't the first people to notice the relationship between confidence modesty. Honesty and skill philosophers throughout the ages have contemplated this idea like Bertrand Russell. Who famously wrote the trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure talk? Show in the intelligent are full of doubt. And here's another weird thing. People with actual competency are likely to actually underestimate their abilities. Researchers believe this modesty comes because competent people are more aware of how much they don't actually know as well as their field in general they also also consistently overestimate the performance ability of others. It all goes back to
A Review of 'It: Chapter 2'
"Today. We're discussing. Sometimes it comes back for you where it's more boring name it. Chapter Two starring Jessica chastain James mcevoy Bill Hater Isaiah Mustafa Jay Ryan James Ran Soon Andy Bear. Some of these people have to just be happy their names on a poster oester. I mean who the hell some of these guys the old spice guy because his name above the title and Bill Skarsgard as pennywise directed by a Andy Machete this is Arnie Coz now playing and the fun is just beginning Ed Stewart and this is the host who still insists he sees the ghost Jacob it aftermath aftermath wow as Stephen King Fan as somebody really into Stephen King around the time this came out of you. Remember dark tower came out right before this. I was actually buying a couple of Stephen King Trotsky to go on my bookshelf with all my Stephen King Books. They're made like a Jack torrens action figuring things and I'm like you know they don't make too much of this so I'll get a couple of these and put them up there. It exploded merchandising for every Stephen King thing. There's a hot wheels Christine. There are more pennywise figures that I can count what I'm not kidding. Wow Yeah so ooh many pennywise toys of all price points this has opened a floodgate on Stephen King that has never been opened before merchandising him to the Gen xers. I think so what does that mean. I mean we all know what merchandise meant and fanning the love of Star Wars. What would it mean to hold a bobblehead. Ah pennywise Ernie called GEN-X. You GotTa Buy Your Co.. POPs gets by stuff by toys by Chachis of stuff you like and Stephen King's. The big caught thing now so let's just how the market is. Is it selling yeah okay. I mean I didn't buy any of it. The moment you know what I liked about it when it was niche and there was like two things I loved it when every week. I'm getting an email this new pennywise doll for two hundred dollars. I'm like fuck it pennywise varian Syrian funk. Oh pops are there. Oh my God so many long tongue pennywise bloody pennywise smiling pennywise frowning penny wise spider pennywise okay this kind. It helps me understand why you were so into skarsgard. They've really been able to magnify what was a very small part of the film really wasn't in that many scenes and by my impression Russian he was only good in about half of them so how he has lived on in the minds of the viewer is through merchandise he made an impression he scarred us and and now two years later he's coming back to finish the job yeah and again. I'd equate to a Freddy Kruger. I'd think it's the closest thing we've had to a horror icon. In a long time and Freddie never had that much screen time it was people talking about Freddie and Robert Englund Cameo films. You know so and I think merchandising we've made every Jason we've made every Friday. Oh my God pennywise we have something new to sell but the highest grossing nightmare on Elm Street movie wouldn't begin to touch the gross of of this fill it goes well beyond the reach of a horror audience. I mean this. There were people in my neighborhood I walk my dog and churchgoing folk who I would never suspect suspect to have opened a cover of Stephen King said. Oh it's coming out soon people. I would not imagine demographics that do not see any other horror. Film are are coming out this weekend and why the impression I got was they really loved the kits. Yeah I think that I it was huge and almost every viewing was sold allow. When I went to go see this Friday night theaters packed yeah you can keep going on about penny wise and I think you're right for a certain level of people that loves horror ICONOGRAPHY. That's a thing thing but I feel like in mass. The reason why this is so beloved because it goes those children were so good and it connected to childhood so well and that's the struggle of chapter or two. I know that the kids are coming back in some role but the torch is being passed. It will now be for new actors. That didn't even have the job when the first movie he came out. What's funny is before it chapter one came out the sequel was in pre production. You know the studio knew what they had right and so when they were you're doing pre release interviews with the cast they asked the young kids who would you like to play you and Young Beverly said Jessica chastain and that kind of makes sense I mean chastain had had worked with Michetti before and I mean how many red headed actress sent me as I mean. It's either her Dallas Broward Sophie Turner from X. Expend Dark Phoenix twenty seven years later. That's great highlight store here. Maybe and then Wolford said Bill Hater. Those actually happened yeah yeah. I don't know how much they had already envisioned for chapter to win. Two years ago it blew up. They had talked about it. The whole way through one is what it was. They kept saying if we do a two. Let's leave this hook here. Let's leave this here. Let's leave this vague enough here. They knew if the movie was successful while filming part one in sixteen. If this did well we would want to bring the kids back would want to have some flashbacks but we're gonNA focus mostly on the adults and they had vague the ideas but they did never script yeah they knew the parts of the book they had left behind and so that was a lot of material is a big ass book. They could make lots of movies out of what was remaining remaining of that but they didn't have a script. They didn't have a cast again. It wasn't called Chapter One. They shape the experience as total you could just watch that movie the and be done and that was the studio's. Choice Warner Brothers did that the makers want to call it the losers club so that it had a hook there for a second one and and I think the compromise was chapter one at the end credits. I stand by that. I think that movie does work as a standalone if it had bombed and we never got chapter two I think that would still be a satisfying the movie as far as the art goes and I appreciate that I like it when movies tell a story instead of teas another film to come out at some other point I also think I think that there is a lot of ret conning done in the film. We're here to talk about today. Oh yeah they didn't create a first chapter that set up a lot of things they're we're going to do in this film. That's why there's so many flashbacks yeah they had to correct it by bringing the kids back and they did d. h. them with CGI because kids at that age you know two three years later look very different. I noticed height differences. I noticed like some who were shorter than beverly in part one out taller than beverly only in part to but they made the faces look younger yeah. I noticed that at times. They look a little bit plastics. Oh okay that makes sense because they D- aged Regata de age. These teenage kids not only like that but I noticed some of the lip sync work. That ain't his voice. You know your voice changes to three years later. They can't say the lines like they would've in the summer of one thousand nine hundred nine so oh yeah you just get people that kinda sound like them but are not them. Jack Dillon Grazer was the one who looked most distracting to me like for some reason his face just look blake an old man made into a child and but this is expected to be huge based off the first one I mean the first one broke records chapter. Two is breaking a record. It's the Whitest ever released for an R rated film with over forty five hundred screens in the US alone and they were saying hundred ten million two hundred twenty million this weekend. It's already falling short of expectations though it is it made less in preview screenings than the first film. It's estimated now. It's going to make less over the weekend than the first film. What did the first film do. The first film got one hundred thirty five million the first weekend. I guess I didn't see that opening weekend side there. Wasn't the big crowd. I didn't realize I was so big right away. I thought that kind of had a slow burn so it's looking like this will be perhaps second-biggest and they're now readjusting estimates down to ninety ninety million. Maybe as low as eighty million compared to one hundred thirty five million for the sequel. I gotta think some of it is you don't see kids and is not an eighties period piece. The nostalgia culture isn't there to draw in the big audiences. I know when I saw it chapter one opening weekend. Neri empty seat in the house. When I saw this opening night it was about a two thirds full on the APP but a lot of people didn't show up like all the seats around me were Phil on the APP and people just didn't come. I think that's the result of that. AMC stubs premier as you can buy tickets for no money so you reserve seats and like I'm decided not to go interesting house in the same screening as you Arnie for Thursday I max we didn't see each other until after after it was all over with but I did also go back and saw matinee on Friday. There was almost nobody there so I have not had the experience that this is something the masses asses are turning out to but the numbers are saying something different even at one hundred million if that's less than expected. That's an amazing opening. That's huge yeah for an R rated Orville. Matt is amazing and like I said packed when I saw it. I do wonder when the reviews started coming out and I always avoid reuse but you always see headlines in that. There were some concerns turns and I wonder if that scares some people away like they were not buzzing like with chapter one. I didn't hear anything I didn't see any reviews before going in but this movie cost cost twice as much as the first one bigger actors in it so if it makes less this one costs seventy million dollars they had budget built in for de aging kids and they had named named actors who we know and some of whom need to redeem themselves from an earlier x men film this summer and needs a show they still can do good budget built in so they didn't have that crap. Raffia from the TV series and it's also longer they can't screen it as many times in a day because it adds. It feels like another hour. It's not quite that it's more more like forty five minutes but still it's two hours fifty minutes. It's almost three hours. We're talking to vendors level length here well. The first chapter one was also over two two hours but this goes beyond that by at least forty minutes so again for lots of reasons. If you know the book and hold the opinion I do the best stuff.

Coke worries about water supplies, AT and T lost six hundred million in weather, disasters and Home Depot. Sees prophets. A new report details climate change risks opportunities and bottom line impacts for major companies. Chris FLA Val covers climate change and business for Bloomberg news, real gannet. But I think the most relevant and pressing threat. His can we keep on doing what we do making? What we make an selling what we sell in a world in which climate change gets worse and worse. And and how do we deal with that? You know, you mentioned coke that is jumps right off the page. Right. Of Coca Cola is showing concern about water resources because they may not be able to find water to bottle their product in some areas. Isn't that a big red flag for many? Companies on climate change. Yeah. You know, the thing that you notice reading through these reports is of the companies that responded, which is an all of them. But a lot of them. I looked at the biggest companies by market capitalization. It's pretty hard to find companies that dispute the notion that climate change will threaten their profitability or their strategy. There seems to be a wide degree of consensus on that question. It means something, and it's not good, or at least the risks are real. And they're serious. Chris businesses look at risks. And they look for two days, I found the apple comments in your story kind of interesting our iphones as an emergency response device. The most surprising part of all this probably is the interesting ways in which companies say they can increase their revenue and apple is a great example. I thought this notion of banks saying, hey, our customers, you need money to deal with this and we can help with that. We can help them fund new things. I gotta build Home Depot saying people are gonna need. More air conditioners, more ceiling fan things like that. And then of course, what can you do with an iphone which I never thought of before? So one could see this as I guess, a good news story where people societies and communities and individuals will have a whole range of new needs that they might not even thought of yet and degree that companies actually respond by offering new things that meet those needs. It doesn't solve the problem. But maybe it makes things less acute. We are all sailing into uncharted waters. Here it seems Chris Lavelle covers climate change and business for Bloomberg news. Thanks for talking about your reporting today on climate cast pay me on. My name's Dan Kruger. I'm twenty four I moved to the tons as a couple of years ago, and I bought an electric car because I was curious about it. And I think it's a much better way to travel. I've always kind of been tackled obsessed, and I come from it from that angle, and sort of through that reading blogs and things I come out to tesla cars, and that really turned me into electric vehicles. I'd like to think that I would be interested in anyway with without tesla influence, but I think that's kind of the whole point of that company. Is it makes cars that people care about not because they're efficient or because they're good for the environment. But because they're fun and cool. I got my car two years ago roughly, and I bought it used from tesla directly the experience of owning. It has been really simple. I mean, it's a lot like any other car and frankly easier in most respects, I don't need to get all changes or anything like that. I bought a couple sets tire so far. I like to think of it like the more people that are early adopters now, and I still think of this as early even though there's a ton of electric cars on the road. Personally. It's more about helping create demand for the infrastructure. So people install more chargers, which ultimately, I think is kind of the pickle. You'd be surprised at how relatively easy. It would be a lot of people to have an electric car. Even as a second one out of the two cars in your family, and a lot of those people could on a purely selfish level. Save a ton of money driving to work in back. You're driving twenty miles a day. You're going to be spending a lot less money on electricity than you would be on gas. That's climate cast.

"Validated. The steam store page at some point last week was the twenty ninth interest to them. Yes. It was Friday. With just a giant image of a pair of hands. Clutching a previously unseen. The our heads up with the tagline. Upgrade your experience may twenty nineteen. I don't. No where the name valve indexing cat was also on that page. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. The valve index stuff. Well, they got maybe I missed that. I looked at it on my phone when it first went up on the bus. Maybe I just missed that. But deter rivers about valve making their headset have been going around for a while now. And in fact, there was a photo of a production headset with an ebbing fat exposed circuit board a few months ago. And it looks awful lot like the image. They put up on their thing does. So. Yeah, that's what. Yeah. If you if you squint held it at an extreme angle that you can make out the words valve index on the
Borderlands 3's trailer is a disappointment
"Three they announced it we could finally answer. The question is borderlands three the new half life three by saying. It is not. God. Yeah. We did that though, they sure didn't spend a lot of time actually answering any question. It was like they might as well. The trailer is fine panel. No we were in the car o. So we were driving from New York. Boston meow, Abby how much the panel were you able to follow in the car every time? I turned it on. It was just Randy pitch for doing magic. And and then I would turn it off for a while. And then turn it back on and he would still be just kind of like sweaty doing magic. And I was like did something break. And you know, it's everything break broke later. Oh, yes. So then they got the then I turned it on is that we're actually getting into the trailer and started playing, and I was like, well, this is my connection must be shitty. Rent a car, and then and then I looked saga. Oh, no. Apparently, they just didn't play the trailer. They've been having this problem as they've been playing previous trailers because they announced like was it bolstering switch something else remastered. Yeah. Mastered starter there's like a four K texture early kind of quality pack coming out for him. They didn't really is running other videos in the panel prior to Borland's three, and we're getting progressively worse than heritable frame rate and stuttering problems. Yeah, they got to the big finale started playing the borderlands three trailer. Same thing was happening. They killed it. He came and tried to fill. Yeah. Magic. No magic left. No MP's. They apparently couldn't resolve the problem. And then just elected to run the entire reveal trailer with the problem. And then a rerun like five or ten minutes later, they got it fixed. And they're like, here's the trailer again. Now, it's smooth. That trailer looked like an like an adult swim bumper like it was just like here's an occasional word on screen. Yeah. And it's just like back to the exact same styles. They swim stuff. Yes. But you know, weird dialogue with fewer kind of thing. Yeah. Like, but like enemies, we got it. But like no dialogue from the characters. So like, no real story set up or you could you could frame by frame it and glean little bits of information about it. But like they said like for a game that has been obviously in development for quite some time now and not much of a secret. And they've acknowledged multiple times that they were in fact, working on it for this to be like they're quote unquote announcement. Yeah. To be like, so info light just seems dumb

"kruger" Discussed on Dude Soup
"Watching ups comes myth or the song that saves your life discouraging artist, and you get absolutely nothing in return ever. So it's it's powerful point. And then the the author of this John Warner then goes basically to contradict that saying that there are a lot of a lot of students. Now he says, specifically in game development, I would extrapolate it out to like YouTube media, an online media influence or media that have been. Kind of like over encouraged to pursue their dreams to the such a state where they're thinking a lot of money to education. That's not really driving them anywhere and haven't been told a lot of practical advice. The could really help them, which I thought was an interesting point. So I'll just read the intro here this from the op-ed, even though the market has become full to bursting, and I fear that many of them students are running towards a horrible cliff. I never discourage it went to see young people stuck in the early stages of the dunning Kruger effect, brief aside dunning trigger factors win you perceive yourself being more skilled at something in the less you know about it. So if you're an amateur musician or amateur artists, you might think you're really great because you don't have the bulk of experience that would inform you that you're actually not. Why is it named after a female cast member in smallville though. It's interesting treating this where your mind went, Diane Kruger. No, dunning Kruger. Oh, like what she ever do. She was really bad and thought she was great. She was in the. I feel like she was. Yeah. Oh, that's good. So I think she's great. I love her now. She's awesome arenas. Lawrence tigger leave him. Sorry. God I didn't. I didn't read up on trigger for this podcast. Might not even be her name. I don't think you're. Did you ever play her money though? No, no, you haven't. Richard Dawkins kind of looks like her mind either. Who don't worry about. All right. Yeah, who wanted to come Indies without any experience in the triple a. industry? I never discouraged even see students enrolling in predatory schools that count Indy as alumni career placement to build students into blow to programs. They don't need for jobs, they won't get. I never discouraged. Frankly, it's time we looked at myself in the mirror and asked if I'm really acting ethically, am I enabled her? Well, I'm done. I'm tired of seeing the waves and waves of absolute shit on the steam storefront believing. I'm doing anyone a favor by telling them to pile on tired of hearing about people who have mortgaged their house to make puzzle platformer. I'm tired of seeing those syrupy quote, you know, you should really take this online unity course. YouTube ads and most of all, I'm tired of letting young people fall prey to this kind of nonsense because I'm too afraid of accidentally snipping snipping the wings of the next Michelangelo. So the thing that I thought was interesting in relation to what I think personally we deal with is I've I have wondered in the past, you know, a conventions and stuff softened a question of how do we get to do what you do produce media. It's a, it's a fine goal, but I always feel a little self conscious, encouraging people to devote lots of time effort into something that may not turn out to anything. I try to be really realistic when it comes to that basically, say you kind of like engaging development. You were trying to get in a field that has tons of competition and you're fighting against people with no moral compunction about what they're going to upload and have lots of free time doing it to do it. And that's a whole. That's a huge uphill battle to fight. Especially when you wanna create art as opposed to somebody just teasing debt rat earn like Bob eating in a Cup and the drinking at again. So I don't know..
