This is a double episode that we are counting as two episodes, and it’s a little bit different than usual. Today we have Teen Sheng (http://twitter.com/Mont_Jiang) joining me from the podcast Escape from Plan A (https://planamag.com/podcast/home) to discuss a new Korean movie we recently saw, Lee Chang-dong’s Burning. After the movie, we had a pretty intense conversation about it and tied it into Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Fight Club, Star Wars, Karen Horney, and Jordan Peterson. It’s quite a departure, but we hope you like it.
