Factory Settings - E1. What Are They?

Every worldview has an origin story

Bridget Phetasy and her co-host/husband Jeren Montgomery, an associate marriage & family therapist and recovery coach, sit down to discuss where the idea for a podcast about “factory settings” came from. It began when Bridget entered the culture wars and started noticing all the things that she took for granted, and beliefs that she'd never really evaluated. Their conversation covers what factory settings are and how you won't even know what you take for granted about the culture you grew up in until you start examining other cultures. They also discuss seeing a general lack of compassion for someone else's worldview in today’s society, being able to put yourself into position to have your ideas challenged, confirmation bias and what happens when you're forced to confront something that doesn't align with your world view, why it's easier to live in tribal oblivion, when everything thinks they're on the right side of history, and the hyper politicization of everything and everyone.

This week’s questions:

  • What do you believe about yourself?

  • What do you want to get out of this podcast?

  • What do you consider a meaningful life?
