This is it - our 100th episode! To commemorate the occasion, Jer & Dawn do something a little different this time. They ask one another questions they want to hear the other one answer!

Special thanks to everyone who has supported us on our way to 100! leadingquestionspodcast.com/20

If I can possibly manage it, I am planning on saying "I wish I had worked more" on my deathbed just so that nobody can ever again say "nobody has ever said they wished they worked more on their deathbed"...

The Snyder Cut: Much better handling of Cyborg and Steppenwolf, somewhat better sense of plot, much less of a sense of humor about itself, Superman is still way OP.

With heavy editing it could have been a good 3h movie, instead it's a fair-to-good 4h one.

In this week's episode, a listener asks us a question about dealing with the kind of overwhelm that impacts your productivity, and Jer & Dawn tackle the topic of burnout head-on. #podcast #leadership

Stayed up later than planned, but as it approached 2, I was like "no biggie, at 2 it'll roll back to 1 and I'll be okay."

Imagine my surprise a few minutes ago when the clock went from 1:59 to 3:00.

I'm great at time.

During a topic discussing AI/ML at work, I adore that we're dedicating significant focus to--as they put it--"putting a window on the black box" and preventing discriminatory AI/ML practice. Our commitment to makes me incredibly proud.

As part of a scavenger hunt for charity, I'm fundraising to support indigenous families losing their homes (to support the people, not...you know). For the next 24h, I'll match all donations to our fundraiser here charity.gofundme.com/o/en/camp up to 1k. Donate or share, please! Everything helps (and I'm doubling, so it helps twice!!)

Quotes from our meeting:
Me: "That's a can of gas with a guy standing next to it smoking, it's going up in flames at some point."
@bfarrugi : "That's load-bearing gas, Jer"

I'm a case and a slowly shipping graphics card away from my new VR rig so I can play Pistol Whip and Beat Saber in style!

I finally picked up Blacksad: Under the Skin, so I'm going to stream my play through starting today. twitch.jerlance.com/ if you're into a noir Zootopia story as played by an uncoordinated imbecile!

I'm having trouble digging in to my book this morning...so I'll post about it instead! Here are my current fiction and non-fiction

What are you reading? What should make it to my pile?

The Seraph and the Pyro narrowly wiped the Fallen Barbarian!

Completely uncontroversial take: @KDA_MUSIC's "Pop/Stars" is easily the best song on Beat Saber. "Revelations" by HVDES is the best on Pistol Whip.

Also, I've started VR gaming again and I'm back to fully terrible!

Me throwing a frozen-solid water bottle into the back of the Jeep: that's not great
@aglance_: yeah, but it would be perfect if we had a rabbit
Me: ...

Me hearing the water bottle roll around: I'll probably regret that
Ger: yeah, we don't have a rabbit

Information you need...iCarly is on Netflix. You're welcome.

The last item is obviously the most important.

But seriously, none of these are monumental, but I am genuinely grateful for each of them and infinitely more that I didn't list.

What are the things that you appreciate about your life today?

🔸I was able to call out some misogyny on social media and none of my followers defended it
🔸I'm surrounded by a team at work that constantly strives to make every day better than the last
🔸The folks closest to me are hilarious and make me laugh constantly
🔸I'm able to live in a state of constant learning and it's cool that I don't know everything (out even very much)
🔸I have a tiny white dog who loves nothing more than to bite my nose to get me to fight him

I gripe about a lot of shit because rants amuse me, but I have a ton to appreciate. So, I thought, why not share just a handful of the good stuff.
