This is the transcript for the first episode of Some Random Podcast.
The episode is unemphatically titled - Companies that went bust.

I read 2 very interesting books in the past 3 months that investigated slightly tangential topics.
One was by Bertrand Russell - The Conquest of Happiness and the other The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm.
Both of these authors are giants in their own right and the books were necessarily brilliant and thought provoking.
I read an interesting set of books this month.
It’s been a while since I wrote my last post. I’ve had some downtime and have decided to get started with a random series on this blog called bad statistics where I pull data that should have no correlation whatsoever, draw correlation for no reason and put it out there.
This is the fourth post in as many as possible in this series.
I had another fantastic month of reading this time around.
I recently watched Avengers: Endgame, if you haven’t watched it yet, you should. It’s a lovely movie.
It was also my 3rd for the year and only my 6th since Jan 2018. A far cry from where I started when I first started cutting out noise.
A friend asked me to do a post on Universal Basic Income, a topic that has had it’s ups and downs.
I thought I’d do an overview of UBI and basic income schemes in general and give my 2 cents on it.
I spent sometime over the last couple of days doing a complete redesign of this blog.
As I’d mentioned in an earlier post, I’ve now moved all my content over to github pages and built this blog using jekyll.
I recently read the book ‘Deep Work’ by Cal Newport, atleast 8 people have recommended the book to me in the past and for some reason I just never got around to it.
