Podcast: The Amateur Society – When Should You Double Down? – 10.08.2018

TwoPaths

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about the decision strategy of doubling down! While the primary definition of ‘double down’ comes from blackjack, the concept is also applied in contexts beyond gambling. The group discusses the definition and function of doubling down, when doubling down is beneficial versus harmful, unconsciously doubling down, and how to think more constructively about our decisions. This discussion exemplifies the type of valuable conversations that take place every week here. Hopefully you find it as helpful as we did. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Beach

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about rest, recuperation, and recharging! With your host back from a vacation and regular participant Sharon on the mend from a surgical operation, it is timely to consider what it means to recharge. Can we be quantitatively and objectively specific? How do the definitions of these terms come into play? Steven links analogies from mechanics, economics, and technology in this healthy and helpful discussion. Be encouraged to check with yourself more frequently to see if you are being worn down.

evervigilant

Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking welcomes back Joe Prim, the host of the Ever Vigilant podcast, for a powerful discussion on what is required to maintain our balance in a chaotic world. The answer will always come from our worldviews, and for Christians the most important element is our faith in Jesus Christ. Our Lord is a rock and a firm foundation, a strong tower that can shelter and withstand the sieges of darkness in this generation. We hope that this broadcast encourages, edifies, and educates you in this hour. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about biology, healing, and medicine. At some level it can seem like medicine is simple, but typically it is only with specialized training or personal experience that we realize how complex, mysterious, and uncertain the human body can be when it is not functioning properly. Join us for a conversation about our understanding of the current state of the practice of medicine and a look ahead to some of the major trends that the future has in store. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Evidence And Explanation In The Fake News Era – 08.21.2018

Books

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about evidence. We have a tendency to believe that we are rational, that our beliefs are well-supported by evidence, and that we make decisions according to sound principles. However, more often than not we end up taking action based on whit, whim, instinct, and gut feeling. There isn’t enough time in the day to rigorously evaluate every decision, so we use heuristics and hopefully stumble into a result that isn’t completely disastrous. On this episode we talk about standards of evidence and how we evaluate the best explanations for said evidence. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

fatigue

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about fatigue. Fatigue is primarily thought of in the physical sense, but it can also come about because of emotional, psychological, and spiritual dynamics. All of these have physical consequences, and the group unpacks the definition of fatigue looking for clues about how we can understand the factors at work. Please share this broadcast with others and continue to ask insightful questions about our lives that will provide us an opportunity to learn, grow, and improve.
