Freakonomics Radio Podcast: Outsiders By Design|
What does it take to pursue and succeed at something that everyone else think is nuts?
In this podcast episode titled Outsiders By Design, the Freakonomics Radio host Stephen J. Dubner discusses the stories of radical thinkers Gary Becker, Barry Marshall, and William Smith, who had a difficult time pursuing their respective callings because of cultural and societal opposition.
The crux of this episode is that sometimes, it pays to be an outsider, or an outlier, if you are to make a your mark on the world. You can’t make a difference by being the same as everyone else.
