New Merlin Mann podcast: NPR parodies

I decided to wait a while before posting, to ensure the quality of this highly acclaimed geek humorist‘s latest endeavor. No reason to worry: Quotidian Public Radio leads me to suspect that this man would defecate distilled awesome if he tried hard enough.

Non-Americans may be confused by the specific reference to NPR, but anyone who’s ever listened to, enjoyed but still felt slightly amused by “deeper” radio programming, from the BBC or perhaps the Nordic public service broadcasting companies, should feel right at home.

“On Being Certain: Believing You Are Right Even When You’re Not” by Robert A. Burton seems to provide an interesting scientific summary on why you as soon as possible should forget the traditional concepts of objective thought and free will.

The book’s concepts are summarized in an easy to understand way on a recent episode of Brain Science Podcast.
