Episode 481: No Wi-fi On This Train

Daniel ends up buying an iPhone 13, while Manton holds off. Meanwhile, Manton considers buying a “real” camera instead, and also shares his plans to hop on a cross-country train to see a basketball game, take in the scenery, and to finish his book. They talk about the relative risks and rewards of investing so much intention into dedicated effort, and how Manton will feel if he does or does not achieve his goal.
