Ladies Knight with Jennifer Shahade feat. Yanjaa Wintersoul

Yanjaa Wintersoul

Jennifer invites a very special guest to Ladies Knight: International Memory Grandmaster, Yanjaa Wintersoul. Yanjaa, the first woman to become a Memory World Champion, talks about how memory tricks apply to games, life and feminism. Yanjaa and Jennifer have a broad-ranging discussion on creative memory, spaced repetition and pattern recognition. They also touch on memory techniques (see Greg Shahade’s referenced article here) and Jeopardy!, a show that Jennifer recently hosted the Chess, Masters category

A longer version of this interview appeared on the GRID.
