This summer, we shared an article from The Atlantic on memorization, and WOW did the discussion explode on Facebook! We couldn’t help chatting about it ourselves, and that conversation eventually became this podcast episode.
We don’t pretend to have the last word on memory work, but we do think this is a great beginning place to start thinking about this issue.
