Ep 52: Ed Cooke, Grandmaster of Memory, on Mental Performance, Imagination, and Productive Mischief

Released Tuesday, 30th December 2014
Good episode? Give it some love!
Ed Cooke is a dear friend and a Grandmaster of Memory.  In 2010, he was interviewed by a journalist named Joshua Foer. Under Ed's Yoda-like training, Joshua became the very next American Memory Champion in 2011.  It took less than a year for Ed to transform a novice from unknown to world-class.But how?!?  
Aha... This interview explores Ed Cooke's brilliant techniques (many of which I use), strategies, and practical philosophies.  To boot, he's also a wicked funny bastard!  If you enjoyed the epic interviews with Kevin Kelly, Josh Waitzkin, or Maria Popova, you'll love Ed.  He's one of a kind.
