The world has changed a lot since everything went online. Remember asking people for directions? If you ever feel nostalgic for the pre-internet era (or wonder what it was like), Pamela Paul, author of 100 Things We’ve Lost To The Internet, reveals a few ways you can reconnect with an analog way of life. See how you can share your own tips for being less online.
This comic, written and illustrated by Malaka Gharib, is inspired by Life Kit’s recent episode. You can listen to the audio at the top of this page.
