Here’s the notes for episode #2 of The Meaning of Everything show.

In this second introductory episode, Stefani explains many of the reasons our culture is so stuck the way it is: anxious, nihilistic, relativistic, defensive, polarized. Learn about ancient humanity, the importance of the invention of writing, the death of God, and more.
