This American Life is such a great radio program and you can easily subscribe to and/or download the podcasts to your iPhone for free. Recently they aired one called "It's Not the Product it's the Person" and everyone should listen to it - or at least to the Prologue (Super Business Girl) and Act One (I Got 99 Problems and a Pitch is One of Them) - because the theme is on starting a business, and it's totally inspiring, and educational. You can also see a clip of Super Business Girl on YouTube:
The TEDx Rainier conference is coming up on November 22nd, and the theme this year is The Known and The Unknown. Here's how they describe it:
What do we know about our world? How do we know what we don’t know? The theme of TEDxRainier 2014 is The Known and the Unknown. Our talks will explore knowledge and the lack thereof, going to the edges of what we know and think we know, and beyond.
If you can't make it, they will film it and post the talks on-line.
