#002 - Kahlil Corazo - The nature of human desire and solving the problem of meaningless work
Nov 24, 2023
John Gillam

Kahlil Corazo is the author of How to Turn Ideas Into Reality: Project Management for Entrepreneurship and Creative Work and the founder of Advenient.co, a Philippine-based outsourced partner of digital agencies handling the technical side of internet marketing. His current writing project is Explorations.ph, where he explores the applications of the ideas of thinkers such as René Girard and Venkatesh Rao to Philippine history and culture. Kahlil's Linkedin bio says that he is a "gentleman scholar." In the podcast, he explains what this means.

Today we talk about the influence of Rene Girard, the three-city problem, the problem of meaningless work, conversion, thick desires vs. thin desires, and designing ecologies of attention to desire good things.

Kahlil is a true gentleman and this was a conversation that will stay with me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
