Episode 80: Age and Authenticity

Jessica and Michael take off from The Age of Post-Authenticity and the Ironic Truths of Meme Culture, an essay by Jay Owens about these confusing times. Michael says:
Part of what this piece is about — and part of what the contemporary crisis is about that infects us at almost every level — is that we live in a world that is so saturated with these manners and manneredness all around us that it’s so difficult to find your own way in it. And I think that’s the challenge that all of us face in our daily life, no matter how old we are or how young we are.
