This episode started talking about sidchas and the episode one of the hosts did on my podcast, involving biking in minus 40 degree weather, but the meat of it was what traps us online and to devices, which also traps us polluting: people design everything to make us want more.
First they promote craving, then ways to mollify the craving but that recreate the craving. They try to addict us.
We also talk about how to exit the addiction, whether to devices or polluting behavior, and how to avoid getting addicted in the first place. And how to recognize when they’re trying to start it.
