Episode #16: Whimsy reeducation hut

Storytelling nights, Instagrams of everything you did last week, tweeting bowel movements; from these things it’s easy to get the impression that everyone is a special, precious flower. But if we’re all special, then really, nobody is special.

The topic of this episode is specialness, and how the need to be special and treat every thing everyone does as special threatens to lead to a feedback loop of overadulated mediocracy. Our guest for this conversation is Eugenia Williamson, writer and contributing editor to the Baffler. It’s pretty special.
