I find online lectures, podcasts, news hours, interviews, and audiobooks. I generally like hearing what people are passionate about. Sometimes those lectures don’t help me in the moment, but when I’m back looking through my journals, I find a trinket that I just have to dust off. Other times, I’m completely enthralled and ready to market what the author shared. Today was one of those days.” (…)
