This week on The Times of Israel Podcast, we’re bringing you a recent conversation with philosopher and best-selling author Dr. Micah Goodman that was part of The Times of Israel’s new Behind the Headlines video events.
Global political polarization is on the rise, populations are more depressed than ever, and the Fast Information Revolution — aka a smartphone in every pocket — has counterintuitively created only more disconnect in the world.
“In a very deep sense, polarization is a reflection of a collapse of curiosity,” said Goodman last week.
The Times of Israel spoke with Goodman as part of the ongoing Behind the Headlines series. The interview was streamed exclusively for The Times of Israel Community last week. (To join the ToI Community and to catch future video interviews as they happen, please click here.)
