Jonathan Haidt On How Social Media Is Rewiring Childhood
This week, I am joined by Jonathan Haidt, an NYU professor and best-selling author, to discuss the significant negative impact of technology and social media on young people’s mental health and well-being. This phenomenon was catalyzed between 2010 and 2015 when smartphones were introduced and platforms like Instagram and Snapchat rose in popularity. He explains the harmful effects of hyper-connectivity, including loneliness, depression, self-harm, and suicide, as well as the foundational harms of social deprivation, sleep deprivation, cognitive fragmentation, and addiction. We examine the gender differences surrounding the impact of technology on mental health. Jonathan highlights the addictive nature of social media platforms and the collective action problem that prevents individuals from disengaging. He proposes potential solutions, such as setting clear norms for smartphone and social media use, implementing phone-free school policies, and restoring childhood independence. We also discuss the need for regulation and bipartisan support to address the toxic effects of social media on children's mental health.  Enjoy!

Scott Galloway on Healthy Masculinity, How to Achieve Financial Security, & Why Vulnerability Is Power
This week, I am joined by Scott Galloway, NYU professor, best-selling author, serial entrepreneur, and podcaster, to discuss the multifaceted challenges many young men face today. He underscores the lack of empathy and understanding many experience, attributing it to societal expectations and the impact of technology. Scott emphasizes the winner-take-most economy, which limits opportunities for many young men. Drawing from personal understanding, he stresses the importance of education, support, and the presence of positive male role models. The discussion encompasses economic challenges, the decline of mentorship programs, and the need for reform in higher education institutions. Addressing societal constructs of masculinity and the importance of vulnerability and integrity, Scott advocates embracing emotions and seeking help to navigate life’s hurdles. He stands apart as a model of healthy, grounded masculinity—one defined by humility, emotional intelligence, and a commitment to uplifting the collective rather than indulging narrow self-interest.
