Existential Anxiety and Food
Jul 02, 2018
Johannes Koch & Jacob Sundberg
Is the boom of dietary trends an expression of existential anxiety? In this episode, Jacob wonders whether the rise in awareness of diet and exercise in actual fact is a replacement for previously held religious beliefs. It has all the trademarks of religion: guilt, confessions, self-flagellation and hope of a better hereafter.
Jacob Sundberg is a Swedish author (http://jacobsundberg.se) and Johannes Koch is a German journalist. Together they hypothesize, entertain and enlighten you about a wide variety of topics ranging from the trivial to the existential - and usually spin them out into their illogical conclusions. At times philosophical, at times psychological but hardly ever researched or serious, they jostle with a new (Un)cultured Hypothesis every other week.
