Team Human: Surrendering to the vast, the novel, the ambiguous

On this week’s episode of Team Human, Douglas is joined by Pixar animator Michael Frederickson for a conversation about the power of awe. What role does awe play in human evolution? And what distinguishes awe from spectacle–or terror even? Frederickson shares his insights as an artist and storyteller on the deeply human experience of “having our minds blown”. Plus, today’s episode begins with a monologue about the mysterious and awe-inspiring world of David Lynch and his return to Twin Peaks. It’s an episode looking at the way artists challenge us to surrender to the vast, the novel, and even the ambiguous.
