Episode 19 of my podcast series, Salon of the Refused, is now available.
I talk with Jason Crawford, Silicon Valley entrepreneur and blogger at Roots of Progress, about progress and the need to recognize it and study it. The conversation includes: how progress really took off 200 years ago, why then, whether progress has begun to stagnate, why the Ancient Greeks never really had a concept of progress, bringing the study of progress into schools, and what we can do to build a culture of achievement.
The podcast is available through iTunes or Google Play, or listen to it here.
