The most boring post! Or maybe not...?

This post is not really a post, but an ongoing reference list of sources I may or may not use in my research. It's not exhaustive, it's totally incomplete - I have way too many folders full of sources and links to YouTube Videos, podcasts, websites, etc. It's also not so much a boring post as it is overwhelming. At the moment it feels like too much, too much, too much!

I'll also post updates on my Mind Map progress. So yes, you could call this a 'living blog post'.

Everything in this post will change over the course of the year.
