In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan discuss the perils of pursuing fame, clout, and attention in today’s insta-world with director Nick Bilton and artist Chris Bailey of HBO’s Fake Famous, and they answer the following questions:

  • Why did Nick make a film about fake fame?
  • What constitutes actual fame?
  • What impact is social media having on our children?
  • How has Chris’s life changed since the film?
  • Why do the people who just post photos of themselves in skimpy outfits and pouts get five million followers, yet the people who actually have something meaningful to say get only a handful of followers?
  • What is the number one photo opportunity in L.A. for influencers?
  • What is an “Instagram vacation”?
  • If maintaining social media accounts is part of our daily work, how do we incorporate minimalism to ensure our use is intentional, appropriate, and valuable?
  • What value have you gotten from social media?
  • Has the experience of the global pandemic actually helped us get away from our glowing screens?
  • What is the prime purpose of social media?
