Hero Worship and Performative Everything


On this episode of the Growth Equation podcast, Brad and Steve discuss the culture’s obsession with idolizing certain people, and how thanks to the internet, everyone has a chance to win at this game. But is it a game that you actually want to win? Or are the forces of so-called celebrity (or going viral, or growing a personal brand, or becoming more influential, and so on) actually just making life increasingly performative rather than real? Might this be leaving us exhausted and stressed? Is there a practical way to opt out?
