If Only …: With Guests Stirling Hart & Colin Camerer
31 min

In a past episode titled “Spoiled for Choice,” we looked at how decision-making can be hampered by our desire to avoid the painful emotion of regret. In fact, regret aversion can cause people to abandon certain decisions entirely.

In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look more closely at regret itself. 

Stirling Hart is a professional lumberjack. He’s also a world-class lumberjack sports athlete. He has travelled the world competing against the best of the best in events such as the underhand chop, the spring board, the single buck, and the standing block chop. These grueling and dangerous tasks require explosive strength, accuracy, and nerves of steel.

In 2016, Stirling Hart represented Canada at the Stihl Timbersports® World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany. He was dominating the events until he came to the hot saw (an event involving a chainsaw built from a modified motorcycle engine). That’s when one split-second decision changed the course of the competition. You’ll hear how that one moment affected Stirling for months afterward.

Stirling Hart lives and works in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.

Next, Katy speaks with Colin Camerer about the neuroscience of regret. Colin explains how regret arises and how it can affect our behavior, for better and for worse. You’ll hear about a fascinating study by Tom Gilovich identifying regret in Olympic medalists, and you’ll learn about the ways that regret can influence investment decisions. You’ll also gain valuable insight on how to minimize some of the negative effects of regret.

Colin Camerer is a Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Finance and Economics at the California Institute of Technology, where he teaches cognitive psychology and economics. You can read more about regret in his paper “Neural Evidence of Regret and Its Implications for Investor Behavior.”

Election Results & Vaccine News: The Market Reacts
After an unprecedented election that saw both Joe Biden and Donald Trump receive more votes for president than any other candidates in history, the focus is shifting to how much of his agenda President-elect Biden will be able to enact. In this episode of _WashingtonWise Investor_, Mike talks to Schwab’s Chief Investment Strategist Liz Ann Sonders about the market reaction to the presumed and actual election results, as well as the promising news from a vaccine trial. They discuss the prospects for a narrow Senate majority—one way or the other—pending a January 5 runoff in the state of Georgia and what the market will be watching into 2021. Mike also shares his key takeaways from this historic election and considers whether a new round of stimulus is likely to come out of the “lame duck” session of Congress. _WashingtonWise Investor _is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

First Round
Lessons from a first-time CEO — Steve El-Hage on learning everything the hard way
Our third episode is with Steve El-Hage, Founder and CEO of Drop (formerly Massdrop). Drop is an electronics brand that creates products based on feedback from enthusiast communities. Steve and Drop aren’t household names — you’ve very likely never heard of them. But we think his gritty growth journey is one of the best untold stories in Silicon Valley. Put simply, it was a heads-down, 8-year grind with wild swings. After dropping out of school and starting Drop as a first-time founder when he was just 22, Steve and his co-founder were short on cash and Silicon Valley connections — but they quickly spun up an interesting business that generated tons of traction early on. After wrapping up their first fundraise, the challenges started to set in, from revenue immediately dropping off a cliff and key hires not working out, to painful pivots, severe burnout, and all the obstacles that come with scaling faster than you can handle. As Steve puts it, he “learned everything the hard way” on the journey from founder to CEO. In today’s conversation, Steve unpacks those lessons and gets candid about the misfires. He also shares tactical advice for hiring folks overlooked by the market and getting more out of your startup’s advisors. It’s a must-listen for leaders looking to build teams and companies that can go the distance. Even if you’re not an aspiring CEO, there’s still plenty of inspiration to go around.

Another platform has entered the vertical stories arena — the same week it suffers the effects of an apparent data breach. Podcast listening is up, but not nearly as much as one industry news site claims it is. There’s a bigger, better Crawl Report inside Search Console.
