The Grey Nautic Podcast is a polymath's paradise: Join me as we talk about the world, how people think, and anything polymathic. I explore theories to be highlighted and built upon, and have conversations with others to broaden our knowledge.
Really, the podcast can be about anything and everything that benefits us!
This is part of a series of audio journals I am doing for myself. Here, I take various concepts and talk to myself (hah!) about what they would possibly be. This time is 'commanding your voice': the main tool of leaders
It's better to let out these thoughts after all!
Welcome to the GN Podcast!
This episode is a long one, here I talk to my dear friend Alia! Here's her intro:

In this episode, we discuss our different upbringings, how we were taught in school, and life in general. We talk about expressing ourselves growing up, education in Malaysia and Holland, what we would do if we had a school of our own, race in Malaysia, and a little insight on what a Flight Attendant does.
In the world of charities, social enterprises and philanthropy, this is one element of human character that must not be disregarded when helping out others. Born out of empathy, selflessness allows us to justify helping others over ourselves, however natural our instinct to survive is. But, why do we do it in the first place?
Do Japanese people, in general, find their own kind more attractive than Western people? We explore this question, taking into account World War II, the Japanese mindset, and the influence of globalization on the generations to come.
If you were to draw your entire mind on paper, how would you draw it out? Would it be a Venn diagram? A mind map?
In this episode, I introduce the Polymathic Compartment Model: it separates our interests into compartments and aims to explain how we view the world.
Used to describe our polymathic tendencies, I go into detail about the effects of Mental Models, Emotional Intelligence and Character on our interests. Some of us like to focus on one or two fields, while others like a broader range.
In this episode. we discuss the lifelong battle between Polymaths and Specialists. What advantages do polymaths hold over others in modern society now? Norman shares his thoughts!
