In this episode, Cass talks with Johann Hari, the New York Times best-selling author of “Chasing the Scream” and “Lost Connections” who is also famous for his TED Talks which have garnered over 80 million views. 

After experiencing his own declining attention and witnessing people around him being consumed by small screen addiction, Johann has applied his investigative skills to the topic of our inability to pay attention.

In his latest book, “Stolen Focus”, Johann outlines 12 different factors that contribute to our lost attention. He describes the perfect storm of environmental and lifestyle factors that have made us vulnerable to the tech companies that profit from our distractibility. This episode is a must-listen for anyone who feels like their capacity to pay attention is gradually being eroded and would like to get it back!
