On Second Thought For Monday, Oct. 7, 2019

Oct 7, 2019

Premiering tonight, Retro Report on PBS questions the premise that the modern American political divide is a new one. The series explores the historical origins of issues and ideas that continue to replay in our headlines and culture today. On Second Thought got a preview of the series with the hosts, Masud Olafani and former OST host Celeste Headlee. 

Retro Report premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting Television. 

Author David Epstein says the key to success isn’t hyper-specialization; it’s generalization. Will being a know-it-all prodigy help you get ahead? Or will becoming a renaissance man put you on top? Epstein’s Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World challenges the stereotype that “10,000 hours of deliberate practice breeds success.” Providing an in-depth analysis of delayed specialization and the Sampling Period, Range is often praised as “A nerd fight of gladiatorial proportions!”
