Podcast: Akiko Busch on How (and Why) to DisappearApril 15, 2019
Accomplished nature and culture writer Akiko Busch discusses her latest book, How to Disappear
Rabbi Rami talks with Akiko Busch about the value of disappearing in today's world, where social media, constant monitoring, and the need to be seen all collide.
In How to Disappear (reviewed in the May/June issue of Spirituality & Health), Busch sets out to explore her own uneasiness with this arrangement, and what she senses is a widespread desire for a less scrutinized way of life—for invisibility. A lifelong student and observer of the natural world, Busch writes in rich, painterly detail about her own life, her family, and some of the world’s most exotic and remote places—from the Cayman Islands to Iceland—and savors the pleasures of being unseen.
