Five Things #126

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. Rob Reid's After-On podcast very quickly became one of my favourites. I subscribe to far more podcasts than I could dream to listen to, but I always listen to After-On. His most recent episode with Laurie Santos was on the science of happiness, listen to it! You'll learn a ton.

  2. This story is kinda difficult to summarise in a paragraph... Lil Miquela is a bot and social media influencer with over a million followers on Instagram. She admits to not being real and was once hacked and replaced by a Trump fan. It's all a bit strange but makes for an interesting read. 2018 is weird.

  3. Food for thought from Seth Godin. Are you the world's worst boss?

  4. An interesting breakdown of the music theory behind David Wise's Donkey Kong Country soundtracks. One for the music nerds!

  5. A great Bowie quote on creativity (click through for the longer quote): "I learned that mixing elements of bad taste with good would often produce the most interesting results…. It wasn’t so much about how I felt about things, but rather, how things around me felt."

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.
