The Man Who Missed the Pandemic, Daniel Thorson

Just as the Covid pandemic was starting to transform our lives, Daniel Thorson, the creator of the Emerge podcast, started a 75 day silent retreat in rural Vermont.

He emerged into a different world, and straight into a media storm, starting in the pages of the New York Times and continuing with interviews around the world.

However, there is an even more intriguing story, because for the last two years on the Emerge podcast Daniel has been exploring exactly the topics of existential risk and societal fragility that the pandemic has laid bare for everyone.

Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller caught up to see what he made of his re-emergence into this new world.
