Part 1 of my conversation with guest Matt Phillion about our narcissistic society. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from JEFF the Brotherhood, Le Butcherettes, Sleater-Kinney and Ty Segall.

Show notes:

- Narcissism is on the rise

- Recent study looks at the Internet "narcissism epidemic"

- We are part of the problem

- We're more likely to take photos of injustice than actually help out

- Matt works from home, posts on Facebook to get social interaction

- Some people need to post status updates of their every move

- Gay marriage debate has been ubiquitous on social media

- Linked In endorsements: What's the point?

- Matt's creepy clown photo

- Creating a false impression through upbeat self-promotion

- Selfies are everywhere

- People will do anything to get on TV

- Reality TV has never been more popular

- MySpace was a mess

- Googling yourself is a common activity

- Matt's IMDB page

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
JEFF the Brotherhood - Shredder

Le Butcherettes - Henry Don't Got Love

Sleater-Kinney - Jumpers

Ty Segall - You're the Doctor
