#1 The Education System

In the first weekly episode of the “Educated Machine Show” Darragh and Micheál discuss the education system, why most of college is nonsense, the importance of not going to college straight away, how to learn different things online, learning languages online, psychological tricks for getting over procrastination, why a college degree is losing its value, the lack of talent in Ireland, why we government support is not necessarily good for business and the future of education.
