Beat the Blues – Week #24 Round-up
Here’s a curation of the most random and interesting content from different platforms that I came across last week.
What I am currently experimenting:-
After lot of back and forth, I finally picked up audiobooks – while there are tradeoffs, I can get done with twice the number of books in the same period as before – I already finished one the past week (Losing my virginity by Richard Branson) and have 3 titles on the queue.
What I am listening to:-
Though audiobooks have taken a large chunk out of my podcast listening time, I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation from the Joe Rogan Experience – I’ve taken a recent interest in learning about Mixed Martial Arts and the UFC in particular, and hearing from one of the all-time greats was not a bad way to start.
Someone recently shared this amazing content curation from Chargebee way back from 2015 – it contains 42 brilliant pieces on a lot of things SaaS and comes in a kickass landing page that you just don’t want to bounce off.
What I am watching:-
If Zuckerberg made you sick after watching The Social Network, Ray Kroc, “the founder” of McDonald’s gives him a run for his money. Must-watch for business enthusiasts.
What I’ve been up to:-
Launching ‘Summer of Quora Tamil’
We announced The Takeaway Club™ ‘s collaboration with Quora Tamil for its podcasting debut.
I had a candid, bilingual chat with Selva Ganapthy, Head of Community for Quora Tamil on what ‘Summer of Quora Tamil’ is all about and why it might just be the game-changer for the platform in the coming weeks.
A quote I am pondering:-
“Depression is like wanting to go home but already being there” – Anonymous
I’ve admired SSR from his Kai Poche days, and it feels like a personal loss – like I’ve heard a lot of people feel at this point. In the spirit of trying to find a sliver of a silver lining, I hope this catalyzes a movement to break the stigma around mental health issues.
