Dr. Larry Lyons dropping in again to celebrate family and dissect parasocial relationships, psychology, celebrity, power, wealth, illusion, and propaganda with your good ol host Shift Orion!
This episode is part 1 even though it is the second half of a conversation that was recorded on 9/8 (a day before the previous episode with Mx Defying). Part 2 is the first half because time isn't real and that was a better order in which to release the vibe.
We talk intimate, remote, and imaginary relationships, personalities as marketing tools, and the consequences of leaving a mark in people's hearts.
We talk Britney Spears and Brittany Griner prior to Griner's return home. We talk Special Forces and the Black Mirror energy of punishing disgraced celebrities in a commercial entertainment arena until their reputations are laundered enough to be commodified again. We talk obscure ethics.
Larry and Shift unpack ways Britney Spear's conservatorship was excessive, capitalistic nonsense!
Between gushing about Larry's nephew, Camden Coley's Black boy joy... we get into:
Always remember to never forget... follow, like, and rate us everywhere you listen!
