Liz and Alyssa discuss:
Liz's (SUPER FUN) tonsillectomy (involving sticks of fire)
tension between what's best for our present (napping) and future selves (actually doing stuff)
overconfidence vs. obsessive metacognition
Work-life balance ratings from around the world
We also gush just a little bit (okay, a lot) about Anne-Marie Slaughter and her new book Unfinished Business. The book discusses work and family, women and men, and to quote Alyssa, "is everything".
Grandma Liz also tries to understand Snapchat...and fails.
Poker champion Annie Duke uses sexism to win, and we think someone should study it.
Alyssa discusses the "roll onto your back and piss yourself" life strategy.
