My goal is to read books for an hour each night. In this episode, I wanted to share some of the books that have me thinking this summer. It is a wide assortment of books that I’ve linked to at the bottom of the show. From technology to interpersonal skills to ponderings from history, sometimes patterns emerge between random books in surprising ways. If you have books you’d like to suggest for my reading list, message me on Twitter or use the contact us form on my website. I’d love to hear what you’re reading!

Editing note: I used the pretty awesome Descript AI app for editing the audio. I also programmed an AI voice to overdub a few places where I made a mistake (instead of recording a word here or there.) I did have to give it permission (in my voice) and permit it to create a Voice clone of me. So far, I’m pretty impressed.
As a note, this summer I’m also learning about AI and testing many apps like Descript to see where AI tools and assistants can help me be a better teacher and continue to share what I’m learning with those who find it interesting and helpful. You’ll see lots of info on past blog posts and in my newsletter.
