In this episode, we discuss how Nelson went from someone “born with an average memory” to a national champion as well as some common memory myths. He teaches us a little bit about the Memory Palace, or, as he likes to call it, the Journey Method of memorizing and he shares what mountain climbing has to do with fighting Alzheimer’s Disease.
