higher education... has very little to do, I've found, in my experience with really being intelligent and clever, it has more to do with wherewithal, determination, and stick-to-it-iveness...
Doctor Jenny and I have the nerdiest conversation on my podcast thus far. We talk about science, education, art, board games, science fiction, and music. Would it surprise you to know that stress has adverse effects on one's performance, whereas proper diet and exercise improve performance? Probably not, but Doctor Jenny has proved this empirically. Do you know what "histology" means? I didn't, but I learned that from Jenny during our conversation. What does it take to go get a PhD? Jenny has an answer that you may not have considered. What kind of board games do each of us gravitate toward?
Here are some highlights of our conversation:
- What is Jenny's doctorate in? (0:57)
- Jenny's art (3:45)
- The board game discussion (11:26)
- How did Jenny get started learning music? (42:06)
