I set aside time to learn every day and I'm always looking for ways to improve myself both personally and professionally.
The books below are a selection of the titles I have read (or re-read) in the last few months. Check out my profile on Goodreads to see what I'm reading today - and I'm always looking for book recommendations!
a16z: This series is produced by Andreeseen Horowitz, an influential Silicon Valley VC firm, and brings a variety of startup founders and investors to the show for discussion on tech, culture, current events, and the future. It’s a useful window into the thoughts of individuals on the leading edge of technology developments.
Foreign Policy’s The Editor’s Roundtable: For sharp, witty commentary on foreign policy and policy issues more broadly, look no further. The podcast brings together 4-5 foreign policy experts in a roundtable discussion format to explore topics that are often too complex to be reliably conveyed in news blurbs and headlines.
The Tim Ferriss Show:
One of my favorite books is Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss, which summarizes hundreds of Tim’s podcast episodes. I recommend starting with the book and listening to the full-length recordings of the interviews that interest you.
How to Start a Startup: This is required listening for anyone who has flirted with the idea of becoming an entrepreneur. This lecture series is also available in video form.
