The Jordan Paris Show

Being divisive makes you go viral. That fiery soundbite, that hot take, is what gets likes.

Because everyone has an opinion about it and feels the need to comment on it.

If everyone agrees, nobody cares and you don’t get the likes and attention on social media

We’re incentivized with likes to be divisive. Conditioned, even, without our even realizing it. Hate gets clicks.

It’s this that makes me wonder if the invention of social media is a crime against humanity.

Our brains are not meant to handle this. People live their entire lives through a screen, spending hours, or even the majority of their day on their phones. People derive their entire sense of self from their Instagram profiles.

And we’re only in the first 10 years of this worldwide experiment!

Instagram has only been around since 2010. Facebook and Twitter just a few years longer. And look at how our behavior on these platforms has devolved over time and how it is affecting our lives. We’re losing friends, sometimes family members, because of our divisive political postings.

We can do better, and we need to do better.

“Jordan is extremely passionate with a nice touch of calmness to him. He allows the guests to speak majority of the show instead of narcissistically trying to add his 2 cents in all the time and make it about him. If you’re interested in hearing substantial content from people of superb interest in today’s world, listen to this podcast.”

“There’s a lot of good podcasts, with a lot of major big names. The reason why I find Jordan’s goes from good to fan-freaking-tastic is the interaction. Shortly said it’s not boring. I’ve heard so many people interview amazing people, and jus totally flop. Amazing people have been interviewed countless times and if you hear them on one platform i hateeee hearing them basically default and go through the motions of what they’ve said on other platforms. Jordan makes the person he’s interviewing exactly that- a person. Somehow he manages to reach into their life and connect, pull out the wisdom they have to offer, and lead them towards applying it directly to day-to-day life. Yes I love ooober-major-big phenomenal achievers, but if I can’t relate then i can’t relate and the wisdom they have to offer just falls flat. Here Jordan is consistently pulling out wisdom and emphasizing how it’s applicable to my day-to-day life, and I’m all the better for it.”
