In every intellectual relationship there’s the person who recommends podcast episodes, and there’s the other person who doesn’t even listen to the recommended episodes.
In my and Scott’s relationship, I’m the recommending party.
But as is the fashion of the other person the two episodes of the one podcast that Scott recommended I listen this week, this is a banger.
Hallelujah, an episode of Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History, is possibly one of the most thought provoking 30 minutes of my life.
The single idea that at the point of release, the moment of deliverance, the second you ship this creative work, that it’s more than likely not done yet, terrifies me.
We live a life today where I do a thing and it’s done and we move on.
Contemplating that Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah took the journey documented in this podcast, I’m going to sit with this for so long.
Please listen to this, then message me and let me know what you thought.
