“A Stoic is a Buddhist with attitude”

How do you not just survive in chaos, but benefit from it?

In this podcast, Caleb and Michael review Nassim Taleb’s book “Antifragile.” In it, Taleb describes a Stoic philosophy grounded in the realities of randomness and practice.

They talk about how ideas from this book have impacted them – and the questions of theory and practice that remain.
