It’s the season finale! This week, I’m talking to Cal Newport. Cal is the author of six books (including his latest, Digital Minimalism: Choosing A Focused Life In A Noisy World ) and an associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University. You won’t find him on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, but you can find more of his writing on calnewport.com. In this episode, Cal and I discuss digital minimalism, the importance of solitude, the psychological and addictive effects of social media, creating leisure time sans screens, and why he never wants you to click that “like” button again.    Show Notes:   Airr Podcast Player (Clip/Quote Sharer) What Made Maddy Run: The Secret Struggles and Tragic Death Of An All-American Teen  Episode 89: Empathy + Having Conversations That Matter with Celeste Headlee Cal Newport’s Website  Daily Rituals  Digital Minimalism: Choosing A Focused Life In A Noisy World Deep Work: Rules For Focused Success In A Distracted World  So Good They Can’t Ignore You Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude  Chasing The Scream One Part Plant Cookbook Know Your Endo One Part Podcast Family Community Page ***** This episode was also supported by Amazon.
