This week, Imogen and I are discussing:
- Social media and video games: can we break the hooks that pull us in?
- Books: is it okay to use someone else’s ideas and create something of our own?
In particular, we’re talking about the documentary, The Social Dilemma, and the books, Dust by Kara Swanson and The Drover’s Wife by Leah Purcell.
We’re also telling a few family stories.
