A very different video for this Sunday – but it’s nice to cover a number of intersecting topics, right?
Emilie Wapnick’s TED presentation intersects two important points, for me.

First – it talks about me, and about “having too many interests”, a “defect” of mine that was often pointed out to me, from second grade to university and beyond. A “problem” that hindered me for decades.

And it does have a connection with pulp and genre fiction – as it describes what’s been called the omnicompetent hero.
This is, if you will, a lecture about Doc Savage.
