Interview with Matthew B. Crawford, author of the new book The World Beyond Your Head: On Becoming an Individual in the Age of Distraction. Addressing the "crisis of attention" in the fragmented minds of modern-day Americans. How might we "reclaim reality" in the midst of all our technological distractions? How might "skilled practices" help with human flourishing at the present time? On the hidden value of "silence" in a noisy world. With music and listener calls.
