This episode was inspired by a BBC article on Billy Brown, a young man who spent seven years alienated from the world and trapped in/ addicted to an online world, eventually losing touch with reality.
We’ve talked about loneliness before and how it affects men more than women but where does the desire to log on and tune out come from? Is it because the online world offers us enough? Because the offline world is too much? Because we don’t think we’re good enough to the people we share the world with? Because reality isn’t nice?
