Selective Learning | The Short-Sighted Approach with Paul Corsaro

Coach Paul Corsaro joins us to discuss a trap that pretty much every one of us will eventually (or regularly) fall into: confirmation bias. Do you look for ways to prove your hypothesis, or do you seek out the reasons it might be false?

No Kings, No Way with Brittany Hoffman

Brittany returns to discuss an essay that I wrote while re-examining my role as a coach/mentor/leader. Inevitably, when you help people succeed, egos will inflate. Is there a way around that?

3 Reasons Why Soft Grades Matter with Briana Mazzolini-Blanchard

Briana returns to discuss everyone's favorite topic - grades. There is precious little logic in the usual discussion around grades - it ends up being mostly emotion. We do our best to inject a little logic.

Keeping Perspective for the Weekend Warrior with Al Bradley and Ziggy Samways

I met Al and Ziggy at a bouldering workshop on our Oz Tour in 2019, and was immediately taken by their excitement for improving at climbing, and by how much they dug into the concepts I was teaching that night. In this episode we discuss how to keep things in perspective when your days aren't dominated by climbing, and the importance of partners who help you keep those few days moving forward.
