I have started on the podcast circuit to promote my book and its core ideas. This gives me practice in expressing myself about the many, sometimes nuanced, topics the book touches on.
Teachers and academics have opportunities to debate their ideas with colleagues and students to refine their delivery. The ideas I write about are the result of reading books, papers and many years of quiet introspection. I have rarely discussed them, even with close friends, and therefore I need to experiment with different ways of expressing myself to get my point across.
My plan is to start with podcasts that are general interest and slowly work up to those that are focussed on specialized subject areas including those that cover the frontlines of scientific research and epistemology. Then I’ll be ready for Joe Rogan.
