This week’s episode is a powerful conversation with international speaker and writer Mike Montague. We tackle one of the most difficult issues facing us humans these days – what to do about social media. We talk about our response to the Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma, which leads us to a deeper discussion about how we need to rethink what it means to have community and how we can curate, not our feeds, but what we choose to focus our minds on to live a more healthy, playful life. Mike was inspired to create an online community, one you’re invited to join, called Playful Humans Clubhouse.
