Beat the Blues – Week #46 Round-up

Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting content I came across in Week #46.

What I am currently reading:- 

A Short History of Everything by Bill Bryson

A Short History of Nearly Everything is an intellectually inquisitive journey through time and space and is one of the most popular science books of our time.

Bill successfully takes on every complex subject out there from the Big Bang to how civilization rose, and provides a lucid, high school explanation with just the right level of detail, enough to hold our own in a dinner conversation.

Spoiler: At 692 pages, it is little on the heavy lifting side.

But if you are a science enthusiast, this is a fascinating read.

(Makes for a great gift for middle school kids).

What I am currently listening to:-

Jim Parsons, Episode #98 of Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend

The Big Bang Theory has made a return to my TV life in the recent weeks – at a point where I recognize the Comedy Central advertisement characters on a first-name basis.

And it is refreshing AND assuring to know that Sheldon Cooper is not an annoying prick in real life.

What’s new on The Takeaway Club™?

While I have enjoyed my off-season for the podcast for most part, I finally took some time to do a “mini-renovation” on the podcast site, with an exciting new addition – Nominate a Guest.

Know someone interesting that I should talk to on the podcast?

Would love to get them on the show!

Simply visit the link, and drop in your suggestions!

A quote I really liked:- 

“There are three stages of scientific discovery: first people deny it is true; then they deny it is important; finally they credit the wrong person” – Bill Bryson

A Tweet I am sharing:-

Shane Parrish on Twitter: “Here’s the difference between amateurs and professionals.”

Have a fantastic week,
