Thriving in Dystopia

Ep24: We Are Afraid of Death. What If We Weren’t?

October 20, 2020

The show starts with a revising of Dave’s ability to write Sit-Com episodes.  The Crew then discusses media and manufacturing consent in the U.S.  In the last episode of season 3, Bob and Dave go big, the ultimate separation: death.  They start with the premise that death and fear are strongly connected, and they wonder where this comes from.  Everything that lives also dies, and what would it mean to rejoice in death as much as life?  If there is a sacredness to death, then why do we avoid it, and why is it so hard to talk about?  They end with some far out thoughts about the afterlife.

6 companies own 90% of the media in the U.S.
