Arrogant thinking re: public schools. Asking Mark what he thinks of public schooling because he has school aged children is sui generis. None of his children will ever come near a public school. If you can pay for anything, if you aren't depending on a system like US public schools to educate your children, it's easy to write it all off with the sweep of your hand.

Fuck is this lady ever a cunt. I don't know why you started the best of 2021 with this person. This is usually such an incredible podcast. She is one of the most spoiled, entitled people I've ever heard in the business world. She was attractive and got lucky and also started her career in one of the best times in the last century for building a career. The whole world's economy was booming and she literally just got lucky. She flirted with a customer over some chicken wings and thinks makes her an absolute genius. it doesnt. it makes you lucky for hot. Nothing against her for being lucky. That's great. But playing it off as skill and hard work really puts a negative on this entire podcast.

@56:02: This is a nonsensical discussion of how human genetics favor competition and we only have cooperation as a cognitive over-ride of genetics. This is BS. Do all social primates use the same cognitive over-ride? Where is the evidence?! This is just Gladwellian garbage.
