It’s another odd show, and we’re actually changing things up again! For most of the show we’ll be talking to Liz Potter (
@lizpotterphotography on IG) and Amy Elizabeth ( @itsamyliz on IG) about the Fallacy of the Sunk Cost Fallacy and why you shouldn’t just give up on a project.
We’ll have our regular banter, but Eric will also tell you a little about the first photos taken of the entire Earth – it’s both earlier and later than you think.
Amy’s article, “The Fallacy of Sunk-Cost Fallacy” is available here:
