Materialism

All of the things
Materialism

In this episode, Tom and Sophia get into our endless, unrelenting desire to buy stuff! What is the impact of materialism on our sense of self, what systems are we playing into, and what forces are at play that made Sophia feel like she needed 2 pairs of trainers in a lockdown? We try to unpack this and more, and Tom has the beginnings of an existential crisis. Fun stuff!
