    Ep. 148 Steven Hassan "Re-establishing Contact"

    Ep. 148 Steven Hassan "Re-establishing Contact"

    Playing for Team Human today, mental health counselor and author of "Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control" Steven Hassan.
    Hassan joins Team Human to discuss how today's political movements constitute cults, his experience being recruited by the Moonies while in college, and why mass civic education about the psychology of influence is important to protect ourselves from indoctrination both domestic and international.
    In his monologue, Rushkoff discusses the recent infusion of technology in theatrical productions and why it distorts one of theatre's original purposes of real human bodies in physical space. "There are still a few of these precious remaining values and modalities where the human form is celebrated." He says of the theatre.

    Allison Fine "Things Worth Fighting For"

    Playing for Team Human today, author, social change thought leader, nonprofit founder, and congressional candidate for New York's 17th district, Allison Fine.
    Fine joins Team Human to discuss her platform and decision to run for congress. "We are so broken right now that I actually want to go into the belly of the beast to get us to the next chapter. I think it's important for us to pay attention to what's going on now, but not to get stuck in what's going on now." Fine and Rushkoff discuss the imperative for the United States to shift to a green economy, the existential threat of automation on labor, breaking down barriers for women's success, and empowering people with a mobile economy that optimizes for velocity.
    In his monologue, Rushkoff looks at how Twitter provides Russia with memetic ammunition to launch propaganda campaigns against the United States.

JoshCrist ,

Empowering, insightful and actionable! 🙌

Whether you’re well established as someone who can translate creative energy into the impact you want to have on the world, or just getting started as a catalyst for change - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Douglas does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of living a life you can be proud of amidst an ever changing techno and geo-political landscape - from leaders who’ve actually walked the path. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

sneakybastage ,

Brilliant podcast but can we PLEASE...

For the love of GOD, edit out the mouth noises??! I’m listening to Mark Stahlman talk and I want to shoot bullets into my ears. I have literally skipped entire episodes because of all the lip smacking the guest was doing and I’m literally one lip smacking away from deleting this one.

Ottoaway ,

Keeps me informed & inspired.

I’ve been listening to this show for over 2 years now. I find inspiration in the interview guests work and points of view. I learn new things and learn more deeply and differently about things I thought I knew but didn’t quite. Plus it’s also just a good time. I like to hang out in the world that Douglas Rushkoff has created. Team Human helps me feel less alone on days when the state of things can seem bleak. Even when the content of the show is heavy, my spirits are lifted.
