The Other Kind of Social Distance: Living Alone, Together.
Living alone together describes the state of living within a community of people who are bonded more by their geographic proximity, rather than their social ties. It’s the feeling of recognizing your neighbours, but not really knowing who they are. It’s the curious sense of feeling lonely in a crowded room. It’s feeling alone – together. This podcast explores feelings of isolation in modern society and how they may stem from a combination of cultural and personal sources. Who we are is, in many ways, inseparable from the cultural context within which we exist, however, we possess the agency to make choices that deviate from cultural norms. This piece explores the interplay of structure vs. agency as it relates to the social mechanisms that paradoxically create both chaos and order in our lives. This piece is not driven by heavy research, but is instead a more casual opinion piece influenced by own unique perspective.

Thoughts on Cancel Culture as a [insert oppressed identity].
This is a new series within the podcast called Conscious Conversations where I'll be discussing various sociopolitical issues. I'll be attempting to normalize viewing people as people instead of political abstractions, forming nuanced opinions that appreciate the complex nature of our society and most important the free expression of thoughts and ideas despite the potential for misunderstanding or disagreement.
