Don’t be stupid – our best new series

I keep finding a common thread running through my in-person training sessions and I think it is something work writing about here.  Don’t be stupid.  It seems more and more evident that many of the incidents and threats to human safety are based in acts of stupidity and utter failure to look at unintended consequences.  Common Sense, which means solid judgment, and Conventional Wisdom seem to have disappeared.  I am not quite sure when it happened or what triggered it, maybe iPhones and “fake news”, but it is here to stay.  In honor of our common theme, Mike Nease and I launched a new podcast series which highlights some of the most egregious stupidity stories you have ever heard.

Here’s a taste of one.
