Episode 22: What Do You Want From Life?

About The Episode

This is one of our most offbeat and open-ended episodes yet. In this one, we talk about wants and mimetic desire, from the ideas of RenĂ© Girard, which we have been introduced to recently. In this conversation (which was interrupted thrice, actually), we talk about what we want from life, our picture of a perfect life, which parts of our lives don’t come from influence and we leave you with an open-ended prompt: why do you want what you want?
