In this episode of The Misanthropic Life, we discuss Hikikomori, a word used in Japan to describe a group of people who live life away from society; a prolonged social withdrawal. First noticed in the 90's and thought to be a fad but today has grown to an estimated 700,000 people in Japan.

The Misanthropic Life podcast is an informative and ironic look at modern life. It is a show about two millennials struggling to understand their increasingly divided and ever-changing world.
