I'm sure this has been covered in some way or another on WSO, but I'm interested to ask this more directly in a specific post. Essentially, what is a topic that you are passionate about and could 'give an hour long speech' on? As a young person in their 20s, I am trying to develop myself in a more well-rounded way, and would love to hear some of your interests.
So for your answer, if you could provide the topic(s), why it interests you, and include your favorite book(s) related to the topic, if you have one.
Philosophy, Ancient Politics, American History, tracking/hunting. Literally anything. For me personally, I am very fascinated by astronomy and it has been a favorite topic of mine since taking a course on it in college.
