Richard Herring interviewing Maria Konnikova.
She is a journalist who became a successful poker player.
He is a comedian who allegedly throws coins into faces of women he's had sex with.
(thats a RHLSTP in-joke)
I was struck the overlap of the mindset of a poker player and trader.
eg, focus on process, and not to fixate on outcomes, esp if they are negative.
Covers psychology, perceptions, (of both the game/trading and of the self/confidence)
Hubris, learning, mentoring, luck (and how we think bad events are someones fault, but good luck we misattribute to our own brilliance!)
There are indirect references to survivor bias.
Really liked this one.

Watched 2 episodes of Criminal last night. Netflix.
Police procedurals. In same vein as Line of Duty.
No car chases, no explosions, no exotic locations, no special effects.

Police interrogation of suspects in one room.
Relies entirely on good writing, strong plots, twists and reveals, and decent acting.

I find his random aggression very entertaining

Now I'm not so much watching as reading, and I like to devote time to such an occupation even more, honestly. I would also advise you to read more, although I understand perfectly well that people like to consume content more precisely through video perception. Here is a cool site - I think at least you should pay attention to it, as there is a lot of useful information there.

I completely relate, even though I love watching different things, reading has been my biggest love ever since I was a kid. It recharges me like nothing else, and I like collecting quotes from books I love. In times when I work a lot and feel physically tired, though, the balance definitely tilts more towards watching things than reading.

You said it right mate.
 
I'm watching my all-time fav movie The Inception of one of the finest actor Leonardo Decaprio and enjoy my drink with it and enjoy watching it.

Been reminiscing about oldies. Started off with Orson Welles.
Ended up with this old, old and rare interview with Katherine Hepburn.
Wow! What a difference in the quality of talent, poise, style, class she had compared to what we have today.
A fascinating life; a golfer, would-be surgeon, burglar(!), and a movie star.
There are two parts, below is part 1.
Notice in the early set up, her total confidence, not diva-ish, in setting up the stage, before deciding she was ready for the interview!

If you have Netflix, can I recommend that you watch "The Queen's Gambit"? Absolutely brilliant. I'm grateful to Sharky for putting me on to this.(y)

A really good summary of the 12 Labours Of Hercules, with enough detail and narrative to be educative.
