Is nostalgia good for you? Or bad? Does it unite us, or divide us?  We look into the history and psychology of nostalgia - as well as how many politicians are increasingly using it as a tool to support their political platforms. As we deal COVID, climate change and social distress, these days uncertainty feels like the only certainty, and many argue that in the wake of this apocalyptic time nostalgia is the emotional pacifier that many of us are falling back on.  It turns out though that nostalgia might have more to do with our future than our past. If you like what you hear, please share and subscribe - it means a lot!
