I watched two Netflix documentaries — The Social Dilemma and My Octopus Teacher.
The former features a bunch of ‘experts’ warning us about the very thing they created while the latter features an individual who chose to have his own unmediated experience of the world by befriending an octopus.
If you want to hear me deconstruct The Social Dilemma and share my own teachable freaky moment with an octopus, please tune into my solo podcast. Download the episode here or listen directly below on Libsyn or YouTube.
