Blind Insights - Lost Connections in 2020 (Special Guest Peter Thomson)

Big Brain Channel

Johann Hari's book "Lost Connections" took on new relevancy in 2020, and still today in many places around the world. While social distancing and isolation have dominated much of human existence in recent memory, the essential elements of human life are disconnected from our way of living. Lost Connections is a book that details 9 main causes of depression and serves as a concise critique of modern living. While isolating, Peter, David, and Tim get together to chat over these topics while relating them to our current situation with COVID-19 especially. We encourage you to read this book as it is perhaps one of the most important books of the 21st Century.If you have any thoughts, questions, or want to present your argument, contact us and send us an audio clip at timwhiffen@auscastnetwork.com Want to work with David?

The Ocean: Our Source of Life and Every Second Breath Peter Thomson; Special Envoy for UN to Oceans In my interview with Peter Thompson, the Special Envoy to the UN on Oceans; he begins our conversation with this sobering message from the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres. “We are knowingly destroying the life support systems of the planet.” It is extraordinary to me that we have come so far in our biological discourse on humanity’s relationship to nature to now directly state that our carbon, plastic, waste pollution is destroying the planet…and the seat of life, the ocean. Do we really understand that without a health ocean, we don’t have a healthy planetary system to support all of life on earth, including our own? Do we really feel the agency and urgency to act? Do we know what to do? Well, Peter Thompson gives us a few clues…and in the end, it is clear that our success or failure of stewarding life on earth IS all up to me and you. So… Let’s be diligent and consistent and vocal about our personal ban on single use plastic. As with CV 19 we are all becoming more conscious about what we touch; let’s become conscious about how much plastic we let into our homes and life. Let’s be diligent and consistent and vocal about our food choices—and shift food fashion from top predator fin fish and shell fish 24/7 and out of season to high protein, marine-rich tofu. Let’s be diligent and consistent and vocal about our concern for the disappearance of the coral reef ecosystem and the decimation of marine wildlife due to illegal fishing and consumption. Let’s let our local, regional, national political leaders know that we care about the ocean… and we want them to prioritize caring about and protecting them too.

Blind Insights

While chaos plagues the streets of the US in the name of justice for George Floyd and for seriously disaffected black Americans we could be on the brink of serious change for America. This begs the question, what should we change in order to lift people out of disadvantage and suffering in a western democracy like Australia or the US where black populations experience radically different opportunities? As the Covid-19 have lifted in South Australia, Peter, Tim and David are reunited in the Auscast Network Studio to discuss the merits of different races adding to the conversation and what needs to be considered in order to enact serious change.If you have any thoughts, questions, or want to present your argument, contact us and send us an audio clip at timwhiffen@auscastnetwork.comSupport the show: https://auscast-network.myshopify.com/collections/blind-insightsSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Blind Insights - Reconstituting Masculity and Fixing Male Problems (Special Guest Peter Thomson)

Blind Insights

Boys are growing up without fathers, getting addicted to drugs, doing worse in schools, getting incarcerated, and committing suicide. With all the inequality in the world, how do we tackle these issues? How are men meant to establish a sense of meaning while their traditions are being torn down from their patriarchal heritage? Warren Farrell and Philip Zimbardo have written some excellent literature on the problems that face men and boys and Peter helps unpack these ideas for a heavy discussion on constituting maleness.Consider Alian De Botton's account of modern male identity.

Blind Insights - Media Control in an Age of Podcasts and YouTube (Special Guest Peter Thomson)

Big Brain Channel

The fourth estate is an indirect and significant form of influencing the democratic process, so who and what we listen to is incredibly significant. So our broad society is controlled by journalists, and more aptly, editors who dictate the conversations we have, so why isn't the media held accountable? Can the media be held accountable? What can we do as a grassroots podcast to change the media landscape and responsibilities of networks? To help tackle these questions we brought in our resident media academic, Peter Thomson. If you have any thoughts, questions, or want to present your argument, contact us and send us an audio clip at timwhiffen@auscastnetwork.comSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
