New podcast episode. Audio quality not ideal, but the conversation goes in some interesting directions. C. 21:30 we touch on some of the material in the book I'm currently working on, about how (and whether) artists are making a living in the new economy.

We're in the final recruitment stretch for the 2019-20 Tivnu Gap Year, the awesome Jewish gap year in Portland. College acceptances are in, & kids are weighing their options. If you know anyone the program might be right for, PLEASE tell them about it.

New podcast. We start talking about the college admissions bribery scandal around 25:30. I answer the question, "will the system change because of this?"

Yes, I do outline solutions. And no, online learning is not one of them.

They're telling me that I'll probably be on around 1:30 PM Eastern, but that isn't definite. Again, this is on MSNBC to talk about the college cheating scandal.

Looks like I'll be on MSNBC at some point from 1-2 PM Eastern tomorrow to talk about the college admissions cheating scandal.

People often ask me whether I think things have gotten better or worse with respect to the college admissions madness since Excellent Sheep came out in 2014. This would pretty much seem to answer the question (not that I had any doubt).

Oh, and just the whole exercise (I'm sorry, health and wellness) craze in general. I'm sure it's a rapidly growing industry. Personal trainers, etc. Plus, if you're dumb.

Maybe it's a growing field, with all those horrible youth sports leagues. Or maybe it's just good if you're dumb.
