Description

This podcast supports the theory I've had for a long time: People dislike authority figures because they generally feel like Walker: It's not me, but the ref or the rule maker. plus people are more sensitive to criticism. But it's hard to hear because there will be no solution until people stop wanting to be "refs", which is already happening in youth sports, but also with teachers, law enforcement & elsewhere.

I like this podcast, but Michael Lewis' style of reading commercials really annoys me.
