Are Generalists Better Than Specialists?

This is another podcast where I'll discuss the old-fashioned battle about whether you should become a specialist or not. I've done so many podcasts  about that topic that it is totally recommended that you check my playlist on "Specialization And Niching Down".

So, in this podcast, I received a very interesting question. A reader from the blog asked me why I've contradicted myself in this topic. he said that I said, in some old podcast of mine, that you should be a generalist. Wait, what? How could that be possible?

If you watch my channel, you've probably heard me talking about how important I think it is for someone to become a specialist, instead of a generalist. But... Did I really say that? Are generalists really better than specialists?
