Eating Knowledge & The Art of Productive Disagreement with Buster Benson

Curious Humans with Jonny Miller

November 20, 2019

68 minutes

In this conversation we get into the meaty questions about his new book that's hitting the shelves this week called 'Why Are We Yelling', a whimsical and disarmingly powerful case and strategy guide for having what Buster calls productive disagreement.

We cover three truths or misconceptions about arguments that you have uncovered, why he likes to eat knowledge, he coaches me through the process of engaging in a disagreement around climate change and we talk about some of the enemies of curiosity and what he calls the voice of possibility.

Then towards the end we explore some fun ground around:

πŸ“– Why he's writing a 'Codex Vitae'
🎈 His 100th birthday plans
πŸ’€ What death-bed points are
πŸ“· Why he took a photo at exactly 8.36pm every day for almost a decade.
