This week, Nick chats with the one and only Mother of Unicorns – Ming Johanson – about our addiction to outrage and why it seems like everyone is always so angry on social media. Nick and Ming chat about how we are biologically hard-wired to immediately respond to fear, and how social media technology has played a role in putting our Amygdala’s into constant overdrive. Nick and Ming also chat about the incredible opportunities that technology has given humanity and, how having a scarcity mindset has led to the increase in anger online and “outrage porn”. Ming also talks about gratitude and looking at the world with an abundance mindset, and how these are the two most important things to help fight our addiction to outrage (and also get us to Mars).
