Hello and welcome to UNQUALIFIED, a podcast about minimalism, defiance, and inner peace. I’m your host, Berin Kinsman, and today in UNQUALIFIED Episode 5 we’re going to talk about parasocial relationships. What they are, why they make my teeth itch, and how we need to be aware of them in the modern world. Now more than ever people need to understand what parasocial relationships are, so we can separate art from artist, not take things personally, and stop defending the monsters among us.
UNQUALIFIED Episode 5: Parasocial Relationships
UNQUALIFIED with Berin Kinsman is a podcast about minimalism, defiance, and inner peace. Not all minimalists are Steve Jobs cosplayers in black shirts, mommy vloggers, or decluttering fetishists. There’s nothing wrong with those niches, but that ain’t me and it’s probably not you, either. I want to tell you about my experiences in living with less, offer up food for thought on why you should consider a minimalist life, and encourage you to be mindful about your relationship to the world around you. New episodes released weekly, blissfully concise at around 10 minutes each.
Berin Kinsman is a writer and simple living minimalist. He currently resides in a shared studio space with his wife, the arts educator Katie Kinsman.
