Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:
Friday’s e-links 6/25
The Throughline podcast on capitalism was in “my best ever” category. In approximately one hour, each of three scholars presented very different views of what capitalism means. Ranging from opportunity and growth to inequality and oppression, the disparate perspectives illustrated issues that we can all ponder.

If you enjoyed The Martian by Andy Weir’s do look forward to his newest book, Project Hail Mary. So far, the story combines the science, the math, the humor, and a protagonist who has to save the earth from an alien microorganism attack. I am delighted that I have just begun the book and have many more hours of pleasure.

I just finished listening to Kristin Hannah’s Four Winds. As history and economics, it started in the 1930s Texas Dustbowl and wound up with California farm labor. But much more so, Four Winds was the page turner story of one women, her two children, and timeless ideas about government, the environment, and being called an outsider when you are really an American.

Assuming that economics is everywhere, we certainly could relate the article that I most enjoyed this week to the economy. However, let’s not try. Please, just take a look and marvel at what an elephant trunk can do.
