How do kids learn about money? What’s the big problem with education? And who made "Raiders of the Lost Ark?"
Why are humans so eager for magic-bullet solutions? Can you explain how a pen works? And how does Angela feel about being forever branded “the grit lady”?
Why do Americans tip so much? What happened when Angie eliminated grading in a college course? And why did almost every pay toilet in the U.S.A. vanish between 1970 and 1980? 
Today, something different; we're sharing an episode of WorkLife with Adam Grant, another podcast we like from the TED Audio Collective. Perfectionism is on the rise–and not just in job interviews when people claim it’s their greatest weakness. But the desire to be flawless is not always productive—or healthy. As a recovering perfectionist, Adam dives into how he managed to abandon the quest for 10s while holding onto his drive for excellence. To hear more episodes on the science of making work (and life) not suck, follow WorkLife with Adam Grant wherever you're listening to this.

Also disappointed you are giving these Aholes air time. I guess it’s a nice place of privilege not to worry about businesses like this.

Chick-fil-A is terrible. I fervently hope for their demise. Homophobia hate chicken is not yummy.

I love how the fact check is so meticulous as to point out Angela's wrong math in the stair climbing scenario, and also how the episode ends on such a sweet note. Go team "Duckner / Dubworth"!

One viral tweet in the Persian feed goes on as “I’m afraid of getting married as much as never being married”. Loooooots of people responded with the same feelings, some over the same decision, some about having kids, some about migration, just to mention the most repeated responses. Resonates with Angela’s Twitter poll.

In Angela's defense, I feel fairly certain that when I was growing up (early 90's) there was a "green-blue" and a "blue-green" Crayola crayon color. I remember it striking me as odd as a child and also having a specific memory of getting confused between the two (you know, when you're trying to continue to color the ocean but end up grabbing the wrong one and then your ocean ends up two different shades).

Steven Pinker discussed poor academic writing on a Sense of Style. He gave a nice talk at the Royal Institution (RI) too - see link below. He also said that the humanities had a worse writing record, and also came to the conclusion that the curse of knowledge was the single biggest cause. Here's the RI talk: https://youtu.be/OV5J6BfToSw
