April 21, 2021 #19 of Podcast: Psychological Lessons from the Onion
In my podcasts so far, I have come to believe that an aspect of our technological age is a distancing from the human. We come to understand ourselves less, because we look at ourselves as if we were machines, computers. I’ve explored this theme in several episodes, including The Cult of Logic, Transhumanism and The Machine Stops. Now I turn to satire, one of the last ways we can still communicate the nuances of our humanness. So I play some clips from the Onion and ruin the jokes. What’s not to like!
