Does anyone else feel like they develop more intimate bonds with voices on podcasts than than real-life relationships? Especially of the spiritual genre. Or maybe I'm just a loner🤔
@DStre you are not alone 🖤✌🏽
@DStre yup. I have a really hard time identifying and putting into words my experiences/thoughts/feelings to share with others. When I try, I often feel like I’m making up a pretend person that doesn’t exist but reads kiiind of like “me.” So with a podcast I can just listen and feel seen regardless of what I do/don’t have to offer.
@emkem That's great, I feel that way too. And the solidarity can feel so healing, especially through de and reconstruction of belief
@emkem @DStre That's me exactly! There's so much complexity and nuance to the thoughts in my brain that it takes forever to find words. So I tend to just end up asking what the much simpler, fake "me" would say, and say that instead. Podcasts can be a window into deep conversation that would otherwise be somewhat difficult for me, unless the other person is really patient.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
