This week, we announce our new class, discuss the rock-solid storytelling found in our favorite childrens’ book, the stories which emerge from the interaction of complex systems, and the fact that the kids are going back to school. And despite Alastair’s skepticism at the end of the show, we wrap the whole thing up in less than an hour!
