Earth Oddity and the Sunk-Cost Fallacy (with Amy Elizabeth & Liz Potter) - Episode 79
Shownotes and photos here: allthroughalens.com
It’s another odd show, and we’re actually changing things up again! For most of the show we’ll be talking to Liz Potter (@lizpotterphotography on IG) and Amy Elizabeth (@itsamyliz on IG) about the Fallacy of the Sunk Cost Fallacy and why you shouldn’t just give up on a project.
We’ll have our regular banter, but Eric will also tell you a little about the first photos taken of the entire Earth – it’s both earlier and later than you think.
