I’ve been toying with the idea of a podcast for a while now, but couldn’t think of a format. Then it hit me: I talk way too much, but I don’t listen enough. I don’t try to learn. I think too often about what I’m going to say next, instead of concentrating on what other people are saying. Likewise, I’ve come to feel that these days, everyone wants to convince, but no one wants to teach.

This is a guest phone-in, prerecorded podcast where you get to teach me about something you’re interested in or care about. We may disagree, and we may discuss. But rather than argue, my intention is to learn about what matters to you, whether it’s political, religious, philosophical, or about your favorite movie or video game, cooking, card-tricks… whatever. I want to see the world the way you do.

I know that many of you have great views, and passions for your interests. So if you like the idea of sharing and discussing them, send me an email at EgotistPodcast@gmail.com, and we’ll get started.
