Max Stossel joins Eli Nash on the In Search of More podcast to discuss the harmful impact of social media algorithms on human behavior and beliefs. Max warns against the pursuit of more views at the cost of personal values and purpose. He advocates for self-control and human metrics, such as meaningful connections and learning outcomes, on social media. Max also discusses his work with children using poetry to foster self-control and awareness of social media's impact. He delves into the negative effects of social media on empathy, misinformation, and humanity, and emphasizes the importance of seeing things from multiple perspectives.
