Moon Walking with Einstein

Book on the process of becoming better at memorizing.

Memory Palace

Associate the thing being memorized with a place.

Reminds me of running and listening to audiobooks. There are parts of the W&OD trail that I still remember the part of the audiobook I was listening to when I ran by. Or running the same trail and listening to a podcast on scrupulosity.

Running with an audiobook actually allows a text to be associated with the real world in a similar way to the spatial connections that a memory palace allows you to make.

Makes me think of the The Being Known Podcast: 2 Beauty and Longing where people.pepper-sweeny talks about memorizing poetry on walks.
