Episode 103 - The Internet, Social Media, and Disconnectedness: How our Online Interactions Help and Hurt our Relationships

In Episode 103, Keith and Justin discuss one of the most incredible (and weirdest) inventions of the modern era: the Internet. The guys talk about their experiences with the Internet, and how it shaped their lives. Keith gives insights into the days before the Internet, and Justin gives his experience of growing up with such a rapidly-evolving entity. The guys also talk about how the Internet helps us in our communication and gives us an almost transcendent quality to our lives. Yet, it also has the incredible potential to isolate us from the world around us. The guys get personal as they talk about the myriad of destructive ways that we can use the Internet, and how it can be used to mask our own insecurities. We had a blast recording this episode, so be sure to give it a listen! In the beginning, the guys talk about Justin's final exams, and how graduate school can be grueling, yet incredibly rewarding. Also, as always, we are joined once again by Darcy Rumble from Giants in the Sound as we discuss Even Chain's new EP. Then, in the end, the guys wrap up the show by getting a little sappy about how much this show means to them, and how we often use self-deprecating humor to shield ourselves from having inflated egos (and our own insecurities). As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast! Let us know what you think!
