Scott Young is a writer, programmer, traveler and an avid learner. After Scott heard about Benny Lewis and the way he could become fluent in a language in just 3 months, he became interested in extreme learning and began exploring it himself.

Scott joins us for this episode to impart his knowledge on ultra-learning.
