Carl Woods is a Senior Researcher at Victoria University Melbourne and a scientist exploring learning, knowing, and skill at an ecological-anthropological intersection in sport.

In this conversation we explore what is is to learn, become skilful and to have expertise. Particularly the notion of being comfortable with embracing uncertainty, and through dwelling with uncertainty becoming open to the experiences of others (human and non-human).

It's a long and fascinating conversation that touches on many topics including the difference between cues and affordances, why it matters to ensure agency in those we coach and interact with, and what it is to interact though curiosity, care and hope.

This is a fascinating conversation that might need a few sessions to listen to, or a long drive 🙂

I have just set up a 5am recording for the next River Tiger podcast!! It’s going to be sooo worth the early start. Dr Carl Woods has agreed to join me to explore affordances (& cues), ethology, and social anthropology as relating to being ‘with’ other species and embracing the uncertainty of not over controlling.
