Talking to Strangers Episode 1

The Book Interrupted women continue Season Two with “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell. Each member expresses individually how they feel either before reading or beginning to read “Talking to Strangers”, then they continue the discussion into a group chat. Through the topics of Gladwell’s other books and podcasts, basketball, making an expert, and predicting divorce, they talk about their lives, inspired by the words of the book. Discussion Points: Personal journals - what are the first impressions of the book? What is Talking to Strangers about? What do you think of other Malcolm Gladwell Books and his podcast, Revisionist History?  Underhand versus overhand free throw shots in basketball Do 10,000 hours of practice make an expert? Can you predict divorce by Dr. John Gottman’s The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse: criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling?

Sapiens Episode 5

Did the women finish reading “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari? They wrap up their discussion on the book and share their final book reports. Topics include: doctor Google, cyborgs, conspiracy theories, critical thinking, journalism, admitting they don’t know everything, and how our search for “likes” and “stars” influence our public behaviour.    Discussion Points: Did everyone finish reading Sapiens? Fake it until you make it—has the internet taken away our ability to admit we don’t know something? Using doctor Google versus relying on experts Trusting people who admit they are wrong Lack of funding for journalism and how can we find news sources we trust? Is critical thinking a good thing? Conspiracy theories Are scientific studies biased?
