Knowledgeable; Introspective on true elites.

By Annoyed IT Guy - May 20 2019

I’ve now binged on 300 episodes over two months. There is a lot of exciting research being done! It is fun to get a few tid-bits on what researchers are doing both in academia and private sectors. What I have found in all the episodes thus far, is that I have yet to hear of a person who’s had an average or low income upbringing. Every person interviewed has a large pedigree of top notch schooling. That isn’t bad but it is very telling that only a certain slice of people behind the science are being interviewed. Most hobbies I’ve heard are the same highbrow type responses and it gets old quick. The series isn’t as inspirational as it is semi informative. I see it more as a way for people to brag a bit about what they are doing rather than showing that they are not robots. That’s my opinion though! I’ll listen for interesting research topics, that’s all, though I could just view reddit.
