    This book told the stories of recipients of the MacArthur Genius Grant These are some of the top scientist and artists in the world and I was hoping they would dive deep into their work Instead the book focused primarily on the award winner’s personal stories following many of them from childhoodI found this book was just a bit too superficial for me I wish they had focused on their work not their back story

    This was a series of podcasts stringed together It worked really wellIt contains uite a vast set of subject matters that earned these people Genius awardsSome subjects are extremely interesting others not so much Most of the people getting interviewed are simply pursuing their passion and doing amazing things in the processNice filler to take a uick break between books

    Audio So interesting and entertaining Even the interviews of folks I didn't think I would connect with were fascinating The discussion about and samples of the first sound and voice recordings were so damn interesting And to hear Alexander Graham Bell stop in the middle of recording Mary Had A Little Lamb and say well fuck was surprising I had heard that recording before but seems the history books left that part out Need to kill a few hours or even an hour at a time? You cannot go wrong with this

    Thoroughly entertaining while also educating me on a variety of subjects AND the way the genius mind works Every podcast was endlessly interesting I could listen to this again And I will

    really enjoyed these podcasts They offered insight into something I’d never heard of before I’d no idea The MacArthur Foundation and their Genius Grant existed What I liked is that the people awarded the grant’s come from both genders different social classes and from sometimes vastly different areas of expertise across science education and the arts This meant every episode was different and sometimes unexpected
