    Alright gang, this week, as the majestic unicorn continues to run, we're standing still and taking a minute to look inwards.  

    In the concluding part of my conversation with Dr Lauren Serpico, we're looking at how the internet is a hammer and how micro content is a double edged sword. 

  

    We also reminisce over Britney Spears dance routines. Speculate on how social media is speeding up adolescence and dive into a number of tips to boost productive, healthy, social media use.

    Season 3, Episode 3 - LIKE MEdia with Dr Lauren Serpico

    Alright gang, this week we're aiming to put the social back into social media.  In the first of a two part conversation with Dr Lauren Serpico we dig into the pros and cons of remote working. We're talking procrastination, productivity, accountability, and perfectionism.  

    But our main focus is on a major issue when it comes to social media and mental health. Chasing the unicorn. Also known as the detrimental pursuit of perfection. Social media as a measuring stick can be a real problem and a glaring example of how comparison really is the thief of joy.   

    Harnessing her education and experience Dr Lauren provides us some mindful, pro-active tools to combat this and to create a more immersive, communal experience online.

    Season 3, Episode 2 - Monkey Pong with Chris Cooke

    Alright gang, this week we're plugging in to a mind altering present and potential future.

    Joined by Chris Cooke of the 'Beyond Binary Thinking' podcast, we dig into the idea of a symbiotic relationship between humanity and technology.

    From telepathic monkeys with brain implants and Elon Musk to self driving cars, living in a simulation, and boomers living forever in the cloud, we explore the exciting yet somewhat terrifying world of transhumanism.
