#014 - The World is Flat

 

[Philosophy] Well, we lost Shaq. Shaquille O'Neal, NBA star and beloved genie from Kazaam, admitted to being a flat earth believer this past Tuesday. Sad. Publicity stunt or not, it seems that no universal truths regarding the natural world are safe. If you thought that this podcast was going to be a conspiracy-based persuasive essay on the validity of the flat earth theory, I'm sorry to say - you've been bamboozled. 

Instead, Brian, Josh, and Bob utilize this time to debrief on their respective camping trips over spring break. We are brought to questioning how man's obsession with nature and wilderness began. Exploding in the 1800s and culminating in the 1964 Wilderness Act, it is undeniable that modern humans get-off on nature. Where did this obsession come from? Human nature brought drove the creation of cities and the rejection of nature, so why then do we return? Why does this movement seem to be so male driven?

We are drawn to the question - have humans operated on natural instincts, or have we truncated our ties to the natural world? Join us as we take a break from politics and explore the habits of the world's most complex animals: humans.
