Generation Z and Tech Culture—Liz Smith
Generation Z is the first generation to have grown up with the internet and smartphones from birth. What impact has this had? In this episode host Menka Sanghvi speaks to film director Liz Smith about her new documentary “I Am Gen Z”.
Liz and Menka explore themes around addiction, polarisation, perfectionism, privacy, soundbite culture and the seeming luxury of being offline. A “seismic shift” that has occurred in just one generation. One phenomenon which particularly impacts Gen Z is “social cooling” - the feeling of being constantly watched that makes you behave differently.
Liz Smith is a filmmaker, mental health advocate, and host of a live event series and podcast “What’s Going On In Your Head?”.

Playful Experiments with Digital Tools—John-Paul Flintoff
How can we be more playful in our relationship with digital tools? In this episode host Menka Sanghvi explores creative practices with the prolific writer and artist John-Paul Flintoff.
We all get the sense sometimes that we’re working on our digital devices in unintentional ways. John-Paul describes this, for him, as a “free floating, disembodied, frenetic quality and a sense of urgency and impatience”.
Listening to John-Paul reflecting on his personal journey, it is clear that he has become really self-aware about how he feels when he is using technology. And he’s found a whole host of creative responses to that.
John-Paul Flintoff is the author of six books that have been translated into 16 languages, including How To Change The World. He previously worked for 15 years as a writer and associate editor on the Financial Times, the Sunday Times, and other papers and magazines. He is also a speaker, performer and artist.

Practical and insightful exploration of healthy habit building
The episode gave me some ideas to try out that I hadn’t considered before and reminded me of some nourishing analog activities I have long ago abandoned in our 24/7 digital world that could bring more grounding and balance to my daily life. Looking forward to hearing want Mind Over Life’s Digital Habit Lab come out with next!
