Join me for the “specialization” episode.

Yes, you read that right. Because today’s guest, Perry Knoppert is a specialist in generalism. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, everyone who has ever told us we had to choose!! In this super fun episode, we discuss life as art, along with:

  • how you should definitely do everything that interests you, but also know when to kill a project,
  • a definition of multipotentialite that includes neuro-diverse people,
  • how much we love to solve challenging problems,
  • the brain injury that rendered Perry unable to communicate and, later, unable to speak his native language . . . and which almost landed him in a psych ward.
