#17 - Love Island: A genius show that combines our need for a companion with a much darker side of humanity

This episode originally aired in 2018. How can an unscripted reality show, largely filled with vacuous individuals teach us history? For this one NEON goes way back and talks about the biological reason for finding a mate as opposed to the way strawberries or starfish can do it on their own. Finding a mate defines most of the natural world and a lot of human history too and Love Island shows us this. Add to that the dark under belly of human emotion enjoying mocking those less fortunate and you find out a lot about how the show works and about your own psychology in this episode.

The TV show Lucifer is back on Netflix. One of the few hit movies Keanu Reeves has done that doesn’t involve gunplay is the devils advocate. So it’s the perfect time to talk about the devil.
