Watch List

Below are some publicly accessible videos of talks, lectures, and seminars from thinkers and scholars I really like, who have influenced me in some way, and/or who are important. I also maintain a long and constantly updated Reading List, but I also recognize and appreciate that not everyone is that kind of learner.  Many absorb information better in this format. So I have strived to provide content in this fashion as well. It will not be as exhaustive as the Reading List, but I will strive to update it regularly.
