248 – Johann Hari Returns (On “Stolen Focus”)

Writer and journalist Johann Hari has returned to the show to discuss why our brains have melted.

His new book is called Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention and it is a fascinating, depressing and insightful look at the “attention crisis” we’re facing as a society. Johann tells me about just how bad this situation is, how much social media and technology is responsible for it, its social and political implications and what the fuck we can do about it – as individuals, and as a collective.
