I stumbled on knowable while I was listening to the Tim Ferris Show episode with Scott Kelly. Snippets from Scott Kelly: Go For Launch Knowable episode was played during the podcast with Tim, and I really loved the format. After the podcast with Tim was done, I checked out the knowable platform, and I was hooked; I really love learning and becoming a better version of myself.
