Episode Summary: MTU Commencement
Today’s podcast is the commencement address I gave for Michigan Tech this spring. In it, I discuss what I call “the myth of inevitability. We’re often told our present world was created by enormous, unstoppable forces. Not true. It was often shaped by individuals, in crucial moments.” And then I explain why these graduates are uniquely prepared to lead us — and need to be! I tried to give a 15-20 minute talk that is inspiring, entertaining, occasionally funny, and reassuring, at a time we could use more of all of those things. You can decide if I succeeded.
