In this episode I do my best to advocate for a more careful consideration of whether or not college is right for you or your kids by talking about some downsides to the way college is structured and how we make our way through it.
I was a bit deceptive with the title of my last podcast but fear not! I promise that this episode is indeed a departure from the real world and the messiness therein. Instead, I've decided to present you folks with a few puzzles that have stuck with me long after the answers were revealed to me (because I couldn't solve them on my own).

Happy New Year to all! I decided to get back into the swing of things before we got too deep into 2018, specifically before we got too far away from the holiday season....why? Two reasons.
1) I'm committing to at least 12 episodes this year (hopefully more) and I didn't want to procrastinate for too long.
2) This topic applies to the holiday season, if only tangentially.
This episode is quite the long one! I recently got a new microphone which allows me to go mobile so I spent a lot of time pacing and thinking out loud about the idea of consistency. This is almost entirely a series of my opinions but I think there are a few nuggets of usefulness somewhere in all of it. I hope you enjoy.
This episode is a thematic departure from all of my previous work, but still explores the recurring theme of "something that is often overlooked", this time through the humble blanket. Enjoy!
So there's this guy Colin Kaepernick who sparked a whole slew of criticism and angry social media talk when he sat down during the national anthem at a football game. I was part of a conversation that got me to think about his personal protest and I decided to talk about it and let you folks into my head for a little bit. Enjoy.
What is death? How are equality and fairness different? How do we have productive conversations about controversial scientific topics? I talk about all of this and more in this exciting episode of Grey Matters!
