Customer Reviews

Good to hear how a child uses memory palaces

The interview with Alicia and her father John was interesting. It is apparent that Alicia is a bright child. The beginning of the podcast was a little too commercial for my taste.The interview was also a little too long. Twenty minutes in length would be better.

Alicia is supported by her father and encouraged to grow. This has enabled her to read Smile's book and to use memory palaces to succeed. Her observation that visual, colorful images assist memory better is a good point. Also to make the palaces "crazy". It was interesting to hear John state that outdoors utilizes more senses. Both father and daughter were well-spoken.

Overall a great interview.

More than Memory

I’ve listened to a few episodes now where the author interviews other language learning experts. These podcasts aren’t exclusively (or even predominately) about memory techniques, but rather broad language learning experiences and approaches. I have found them interesting and motivating.

The author also takes care to maximize the listener experience by editing the podcast to reduce silence and unnecessary tangents during the course of the interviews. I appreciate that he puts up a complete, well-thought-out project each time.

My only critique is the cheesy and annoying “advertisement” for the podcast. It always comes after the introduction which makes it harder to skip because by that point I’m already settled into listening and multi-tasking on something else. I know the author is trying to promote his entire product, but I find the ad sensationalized and of the “As Seen on TV” category.

Mnemonic Examples Do Not Work In the Long Run

This was an interesting podcast. It was helpful in that it pointed me to a new memory site that looks interesting. On the other hand, I only partially agree with the idea that mnemonic examples do not work. For those of us who are poor visualizers, we need examples to get started. I do agree, though, that more is needed: a framework on which to place the examples and the concepts needed to develop one's own example, which WILL be more effective than someone else's. Anthony does say that his books and courses do include a lot of examples, so that's hopeful.
