The TV show Severance presents a provocative premise: the ability to switch off your work self from your personal self, creating a distinct identity solely for the office. Would you opt for such a separation if you had the choice? And if so, would this work-specific persona have its own autonomy and rights? Can consciousness truly be severed from the body?

Rob McKenzie joins the conversation to unravel these philosophical and ethical questions posed by the show. Whether you’re new to Severance or have revisited the series multiple times, this episode offers a thorough walk-through designed to enlighten both first-time viewers and seasoned fans.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
