April 20, 2018
Key Info for this Podcast: 
I have a few topics I’ve been meaning to cover but never got a chance because they wasn’t enough content to fill an entire episode, so I’m combining three of those topics together today into a potpourri episode of sorts! Join me today as we discuss:
  • Photovoice and why it’s an interesting way to enact positive social change for disadvantaged populations
  • My review of the book Skin in the Game, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
    • What does it mean to have Skin in the Game?
    • Who has and does not have skin in the game?
    • How the minority rules over the majority, and what this means for people with disabilities
    • The Silver Rule
  • Some thoughts on lifestyle design for college students
