📣Recommendation Three: The Maps of Meaning Series from Jordan B Peterson Podcast

1. Kevin strongly recommends the Maps of Meaning Series from Jordan B Peterson Podcast, though these episodes haven’t been discussed in great details by us in the interview due to time limit. You can either listen to or watch the series; if you just want to spend a short period of time getting some gists, you may consider brief summaries done by websites providing abstracting services.

2. If Maps of Meaning sound too complex and profound to you, Kevin suggests trying Episode 22, aka. Adam and Eve: Self-Consciousness, Evil & Death, which deciphers myths and mystique of biblical stories and extends to the realistic human life. You can also watch the lecture here.

3. A piece from the New Yorker in 2018 describing and explaining the phenomenon of Jordan Peterson.

📣Recommendation Four: Thrive Podcast by Kevin

1. Link to listen to Kevin’s Thrive Podcast; its Chinese version is also available under the same link.
