HUNGRY Avocado Toast, Instagram Influencers, and Our Search for Connection and Meaning

by | Read by Taylor Meskimen

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Describing how technology and other modern innovations are shaping people's indulgence in food, fitness, and other obsessions, a keen cultural observer provides worldwide examples of how mankind's search for a satisfied mind has derailed. Narrator Taylor Meskimen provides a vocal performance that is true to the author's ideas but stays in a pitch range that sounds trapped in the upper registers. The audio might have benefited from more vocal variability. The author's reporting shows how obsessions with food and other pastimes are a way for many to cope with voids in their spiritual and emotional lives. While putting energy into eating, fitness, or screen activities may provide some relief, she says global trends of disconnection will only ease when we have more face time in authentic relationships.
