Episode details

The Wisdom Of A Practical Man As a young naive apprentice, I had the benefit in my training of the wisdom of a practical man and master of his craft. “Assumption is the mother and father of all fuckups young man”, he said once as he stared beyond me dismissively. What he actually said was; you’re a fool, but that’s ok you’re supposed to be. It was like he wanted to show me my own stupidity, to be aware of it because without that realisation I couldn’t learn from him. Or anyone else for that matter.
