Bored and Brilliant (2017) invites readers to embrace the unique power of a state that’s rarely viewed in a positive light: boredom.

Positing that a healthy experience of boredom is vital to unlocking our creative potential, Bored and Brilliant illustrates the invaluable resources boredom can provide and encourages readers to disconnect from the busy distractions of modern life, especially email, social media, and our addiction to our smartphones. Arguing that disengaging from technology and giving our minds the freedom to be bored will help us boost our creativity, productivity, and potential for brilliant ideas, Manoush Zomorodi sets out to teach readers how to (effectively) be bored.

287: Togetherness! Is There Anything We Like Doing As A Family? Plus Podcasters Manoush Zomorodi & Jen Poyant

Read more

Biz and Theresa ask the big question…is there anything we like doing together as a family? Togetherness, a word that goes hand in hand with family and yet, in practice, seems hard to achieve (unless you count everyone sleeping in the same house as togetherness). Is there a small window where we all like doing the same thing or is the secret in accepting that there is no perfect togetherness scenario? Plus Biz gives an update on feeding her kids, Theresa is a great mom and we talk to Manoush Zomorodi & Jen Poyant of ZigZag.

166. Manoush Zomorodi (journalist) — How blockchain might save journalism. Maybe.

Read more

Why would two intelligent women running a hugely successful podcast at one of the most respected studios in the audio world, quit to start a small journalism company built on blockchain, a technology very few people have ever heard of?

To quote someone on Twitter yesterday paraphrasing Bill Clinton sounding pretty harsh, actually: "It's the business model, stupid."

As we keep learning the hard way, as long as we get our journalism from Facebook and 24 hour cable news, we're suckers for infotainment, propaganda, and actual fake news—not the real news Trump is always calling fake, but the real fake news trolls cook up to polarize American culture. And in these raging digital waters, non-profits and public media struggle just to stay afloat.

There's got to be a better way, right?

Manoush Zomorodi and Jen Poyant thought so. Partners on the podcast Note to Self, they left to start Stable Genius Productions. It's part of Civil, a new blockchain journalism platform. For reasons we'll try to explain, blockchain has the potential to bring us better, more independent media. Better, more independent everything, maybe.

That's what Jen and Manoush were betting on, anyway. They document the twists and turns since that fateful decision with refreshing vulnerability on their podcast ZigZag. Its second season started on October 11th.
