Rohit Bhargava - Non-Obvious Podcast: The Future of Boredom

About

What happens in a world without space or time to be bored?

Every waiting moment can now be filled with something. Reading, streaming, listening - all of it keeps us from the undesirable tedium of being bored. Boredom can be painful, but it can also open new spaces in our minds. So if we lose the ability to be bored, will we give up something important?

In this conversation we bring together an award-winning investigative humorist who uses comedy to make climate related stories accessible and a digital behavior expert (and creator of the term “zombie scrolling”) as we take a non-boring look at the importance of being bored … and what happens if a new generation grows up with an inability to understand what it feels like or why it might matter.

With Rohit Bhargava, Dan Ilic and Dr Joanne Orlando .
