On episode 154, we welcome Bob Hutchins and Jenny Black to discuss media trauma and how poor mental health is linked to social media use, Jenny’s clinical practice and why she’s seen an uptick of mental illness in her clients, social media being similar to Big Tobacco and why it should be better regulated, whether we can label our collective phone use an ‘addiction’, our minds linking purpose and meaning with how active we are on social media, disconnecting from our phones and reframing distorted thoughts about living without them, social media being a fake form of intimacy, who’s responsible for increased polarization, and how to hold ourselves and media platforms more accountable.

Bob Hutchins is an accomplished and dynamic marketing executive with a 20+ year comprehensive background in marketing in both corporate and small to medium environments across various industries. He is an expert in digital marketing, consumer psychology, and organizational marketing direction. Jenny Black is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Media Trauma—the ways that media impacts our mental health, creativity and productivity. His newest book, coauthored with Jenny Black, is called Our Digital Soul: Collective Anxiety, Media Trauma and A Path Toward Recovery.
