    MIND GAMES: What Poker Can Teach Us About Luck, Skill, and Ourselves

    You have to play with the hand you’re dealt. At least that’s what we’re always told. But is it really true? How much of what we achieve in life is the product of our pluck and guile, and how much is just dumb luck? To find out, New Yorker writer Maria Konnikova dropped everything and joined the pro poker tour. The lessons were not what she expected.Support us by supporting our sponsors!The Great Courses Plus - Get FREE access to the entire library at thegreatcoursesplus.com/bigidea.

    TRANSCENDENCE: Finding Fulfillment Beyond Ourselves

    You may have heard about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which sees human development as a sort of a pyramid, with survival needs at the bottom, social and emotional needs in the middle, and “self-actualization” at the top. Psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman thinks we can do better. Instead of striving to become our best selves, we can strive to connect with the world beyond ourselves — to truly transcend.Support us by supporting our sponsors!The Great Courses Plus - Get FREE access to the entire library at thegreatcoursesplus.com/bigidea.

    HUMANKIND: Finding Hope in Human History

    Our society is built on the assumption that we’re all a broken stoplight away from reverting to our animal selves. It’s what we’ve come to call “realism.” Historian Rutger Bregman thinks that kind of realism is, well, unrealistic. And not because we can learn to be better, but because deep down, we already are.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Great Courses Plus — thegreatcoursesplus.com/bigideaThe Next Big Idea Club — Visit https://www.nextbigideaclub.com/podcast and use the code FREE3 for a three-month pass.

    FREE MONEY: Why Andrew Yang Thinks a Giveaway Can Save the Economy

    Andrew Yang has a pretty bleak vision for the future. The way he sees it, we’re staring down the barrel of a techno-apocalypse. Robots will replace millions of workers. Income inequality will skyrocket. And social isolation will become the new normal. But Yang has a big idea he thinks can stave off disaster. It’s called universal basic income — a $1,000 check in the mail each month, no strings attached. Yang’s been pushing this magic bullet for a long time, first in his book, “The War on Normal People,” and now as he campaigns for president. But would it really make a difference, and is it even realistic?

    JOYFUL: Why Ordinary Objects Can Make You Extraordinarily Happy

    Conventional wisdom tells us that real joy comes from within: from exercise or meditation, acts of service or the way we look at the world—pretty much anything except material possessions.But author/designer Ingrid Fetell Lee offers a different opinion in her book, "Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness." Lee tells Next Big Idea Club curator Adam Grant that there's tangible evidence of the powerful relationship between the way we feel and the objects that surround us, and she explains how we can harness that relationship to live healthier, happier lives.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Zip Recruiter — Try it for free at ZipRecruiter.com/BIGIDEAAudible — To get a 30-day trial, visit audible.com/BIGIDEAPeloton — Go to OnePeloton.com and use the code BIGIDEA to get $100 off accessoriesNext Big Idea Club — The best books of the year delivered to your door.
