In this episode Gabe shares his deep wisdom on life and music.

Hey Noah,
I'd love to somehow support your podcast but honestly don't know how to easily do it. Podcast addict (the app I'm using to play podcasts) has a rating option but it looks to be an internal rating only (for me to filter?).

Also on your blog there is no easy way to rate an episode.

What's the easiest way to rate your show?

36:25 : "People when they start thinking that they know everything, that's when they start failing"

That's actually a common cognitive bias that people get once they overcome the beginner level in deep subjects involving extensive learning curves like driving a car, speaking a language, mastering a course or even figuring out what's life about.

It's called Duning-Kruger and demonstrates in a nutshell how people, after learning the basics of a topic, are subject to overvalue their competence since they don't have gathered enough knowledge to properly estimate the depth of a topic.

Imho, keeping that in mind helps to preserve your self-view a bit more accurate and down to earth.

Once you stop learning, you start dying, said Einstein. It's sad how some poeple die in their 20s but don't reach the coffin until their 70s.

So, stay curious, stay alive!

Great. I'm so happy that you included a direct link to download the podcast. I had to hunt for it a bit--finally found the link through the blog. I'm looking forward to future podcasts.
