The Literary Mind

Rats, Crowds, and Brain Loss

A video spoof on sociality, alcohol, and the maze we live in

Posted Dec 21, 2017

There are so many self help-minded podcasts these days, and I've been listening to them from all sorts of listening positions. Sometimes with my open mind—on a run through the park, podcast humming in my ear, mind made willing by the rhythm, ready for some insight. 

Sometimes I listen with a more critical mind, suspicious of the earnest voice of a podcaster peddling soft science. This week, a podcast hit me with its ridiculousness, and I made a video. Here encounter rats, crowds, brain loss, gin, and a soft spot for the fate of the introvert.
