1KHO 113: The Digital Substitute: Can Technology Replace our Most Valuable Relationships? | Andy Crouch, The Life We're Looking For

I had the immense privilege of interviewing Andy Crouch for a second time! Amongst many, many accomplishments Andy is the author of the new book "The Life We're Looking For: Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World."

In this episode we discussed the promises and consequences of innovation, and how technology has the power to shape our relationships and interactions with one another. Crouch shared his insight on how for the most valuable things in life, there are no digital substitutes. He also touched on the idea that technology gives us simulations of recognition that ultimately aren’t satisfying.

Crouch emphasized that so much is at stake in the way we handle technology, and how it is important for us to understand the role of machines and their need for machine-like environments to operate autonomously. He also challenged us to consider doing something harder and better, rather than just relying on technology to make our lives easier.

Overall, the interview provided a thought-provoking perspective on the impact of technology on our relationships and the way we live our lives. After listening to this one, you'll be motivated to be a "three-plane person." :) Crouch’s book offers valuable insights and practical steps for reclaiming relationships in a technological world. I highly recommend checking it out!

    Albert Einstein said, 'If you can't explain it simply enough, you haven't understood it well enough'.Dr Andrew brings such simplicity to explaining the workings of the brain. It's actually a hacker's guide into our own brain. You are doing great service to humanity Dr Andrew.


    Very thought out! Can't wait to try it out.
