In this episode, Sarah and I wax philosophical about how education works (mostly in the United States, but ideas are broadly applicable) and how public schools + college could be improved. Along the way, we talk about how technology creates or eliminates jobs and what kind of market opportunities exist to help people train for better employment.
Sorry for the long delay, hopefully we can get on a more regular schedule!

As the year winds down, we decided to make episode 3 all about the major tech trends of the year and what matters now. If anything, it’ll be fascinating to look back on this episode next year and see how things have changed. We covered 6 major topics and there’s a lot that we didn’t get to, like the leaks about NSA, Bitconin, and Women in Tech for instance, but hopefully you find our list interesting and worth a listen.
