In a re-airing of one of our most fascinating interviews, Amy Herman joins us to talk about visual intelligence. How can looking at fine art, or rather learning how to truly notice what it is you are seeing, change, or even save your life? Herman has trained police officers, doctors, military, and special operatives to hone their observation skills by studying visual art. On occasion of her recent Ted Talk reaching half a million views, we've decided to repost her thought-provoking interview on our show in which she shares the secrets of how practicing perception in art can help keep you safer.
