As I wait for more Adam Grant new episodes, am pilfering his back catalog of podcasts. This one with MG sparring against AG was just awesome...the thoughtful insight peppered with sharp humour. I was laughing away in my car. I wish I had seen the video as the facial expressions would augment it further.

Thanks for an inspiring podcast. Any resources for techniques on memory training? Does the moonwalking with Einstein book also have methods? thanks!

actually to get to the root cause of memory loss and all bad traits in people can all be summed up to 1 thing and that is SIN. to have good memory or a good pious healthy lifestyle is to thrive against SIN. So if you think about it memorising your book of faith and living by it can give good memory, long lifespan as a reward as well as other stuff.
