In this episode we sit down with Catherine Herbst. Catherine is owner/principal at Rinehart/Herbst, she is also a faculty member at Woodbury San Diego. We touch on a wide variety of topics, from solitary confinement, to how we organize our workspaces, and the role of a university in the neighborhood it lives in.
I was glad that the topic of ambition and playing an active role in ones education came up in this discussion. Catherine mentions in this episode that as students sometimes we fall into a trap of thinking that the school/teacher will be providing everything for us, and that education is this narrow one-way transfer of information from teacher to pupil. I agree with her, in that we should be more ambitious and more prone to asking ourselves ‘what do we want out of this’ , instead of ‘one section is enough, right?’
Enjoy this episode!
