Looking For The Perfect Sunday

In this episode of The Walk, I share how hard it is to choose between the many things you can do on a Sunday (or on any other given day). Which leads me to reflect upon the relationship between goals and aspirations on the one hand, and time plus resources on the other hand. How can you discern what is the best use of your time?

Squid Game, James Bond, Niksen and Science Denial

In this podcast, I share short reviews of Free Guy, The Father and No Time to Die and I talk about the latest Netflix hit series ‘Squid Game’. I review the book “Niksen: Embracing the Dutch Art of Doing Nothing” and I talk about science denial. This show was patched together from two broken internet streams and misses a few of the usual segments due to me forgetting to press record locally on my audio recorder. I’ll integrate the missing topics in next week’s show!
