The Gray Area with Sean Illing

by Vox



3,000 years of The Iliad
A brief history of extinction panics
A Jew and a Muslim get honest about Israel and Gaza
A philosopher takes on religious life
A pro-worker work ethic
Brian Stelter thinks the news has a reliability problem
Can a friend be our most significant other?
Clickbait’s destructive legacy
Conservative socialism?
Democracy’s existential crisis 🅴
Fareed Zakaria on our revolutionary moment
How corporations got all your data
How to keep panic from attacking
How we got to January 6th 🅴
Is America getting meaner?
Is the journey to self-discovery pointless?
Late-stage liberalism
Life is hard. Can philosophy help?
Music and mysticism
Naomi Klein on her doppelganger (and yours)
Neil deGrasse Tyson gets political
Poetry as religion
Should we press pause on AI?
Taking anarchism seriously
The American dream is a pyramid scheme
The benefits of utopian thinking
The case against free will
The case for banning...millionaires?
The case for not killing yourself
The case for not killing yourself 🅴
The chaplain who doesn't believe in God
The denial of death
The end of social media
The free-market century is over
The free-market century is over 🅴
The future of tribalism
The joy of uncertainty
The lessons of Sam Bankman-Fried
The new American Reconstruction
The new crisis of masculinity
The new(ish) world order
The spiritual roots of our strange relationship to work
The therapeutic potential of MDMA 🅴
We Are What We Watch
Werner Herzog’s ecstatic truth
What a slow civil war looks like
What Clarence Thomas really thinks
What comes after Black Lives Matter?
Your brain isn't so private anymore
Your identity is a story you tell yourself
Yuval Noah Harari thinks humans are unstoppable
