Digital Desires #20: Captivology

On this week’s episode of Digital Desires, Fuad and Vizla explore the phenomenon of captivology. With the help of special guest Pang Khee Teik, they try to understand why we engage in parasocial relationships online and how we live aspirationally through celebrities’ instagram feed. The book cited in the show and the article is called "Captivology: The Science of Capturing People's Attention" by Ben Parr.
