BORED AND BRILLIANT How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Manoush Zomorodi

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Levity is mixed with earnestness as author and narrator Manoush Zomorodi sets forth the "Bored and Brilliant challenge," which encourages listeners to spark their creativity by detaching from their tech devices. In this spirited exploration of our relationship with technological devices, Zomorodi's melodic voice beckons and inspires listeners to develop a deeper understanding of how tech devices affect our potential. Zomorodi humorously examines the relationship between boredom and brilliance, emphasizing how many people don't realize just how connected they are to their phones and social media. In her interview with the developer of Two Dots, Zomorodi playfully chastises him as she reveals how she, too, became quickly addicted to the phone app. Zomorodi persuasively conveys her compelling points on the need for reflection to make room for enlightenment in this age of technological overload.
