I haven’t watched Chernobyl yet, but as someone who grew up very close to Three Mile Island (including during the accident), I really liked this ⁦@nmeans⁩ systems thinking-grounded exploration of what happened. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xQeXOz0Ncs
 
The book Command and Control is also an excellent entry in this genre.

Yeah, how come the “law & order” Trumpists aren’t arguing that Hicks should be strangled to death on camera with no trial, and then have her last words turned into mocking t-shirts that cops wear?

Also a good lesson in what centrism gets you from Trumpists: jack shit. If the centrist dems are really interested in winning over Trump’s base, they should be calling for violence against innocent children; they find this hugely appealing.

Social mobility can put someone in proximity with others who have a huge amount of privilege and resources, but no understanding of what it means to be carrying other people’s hopes, or dreams, or opportunities, on your shoulders.
One of the biggest cultural considerations that gets massively overlooked is how much burden there is on people who are the first in a family (or in a community!) to succeed in certain ways, and how it totally changes their risk profile and their sense of obligation.

40/47,619 And remarkably, with Batdance, Prince’s unlikely bet paid off. Just as conservative voices had criticized him as too risqué, and cutting-edge artists in (then-nascent) hip hop quietly implied he was passé, Prince came back to a new cultural relevance on his own terms.

Like, I started my first company... ~25 years ago? And all I've done since then is learn more and try to do better, and *very* little of the things people write apply outside of their specific domain or experience. We can learn from them, but every situation is hugely different.
One of the weirdest things about being a CEO is I end up seeing a lot of media and advice aimed toward entrepreneurs, or offering tips on how to succeed in business, and my overwhelming response to it all is NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING! Honestly. Almost all the advice is overstated.

A new version of Too Big To Fail
