    Prof Sheldon Solomon (part 1) - The Agony and Beauty of our Inevitable Death

    Prof. Sheldon Solomon is a social psychologist at Skidmore College. His research focuses on our awareness of our own death, and how (the denial of) it makes us cling to cultural abstractions, guide or behaviour or vote for testosterone infused primates (you know whom I'm referring to).

    In the podcast, I investigate the question "who or what are we?" with 20 different people, encouraging you to think on things yourself.

    Dirk De Wachter (part 2) about the illnesses of modern society

    Dirk De Wachter (part 2) about the illnesses of modern society

    A not-so lightweight conversation about:
    - a life worth living
    - our lack of acceptance of death
    - making others happy instead of ourself
    - how we survive by destroying the other
    - accepting life's sh*t sometimes

    Dirk agreed on doing this interview because this way he can reach more people. He wants you to take what he said and think about it yourself, or as he would say: "you have a brain, use it!". That happens to be the same goal as the podcast.
