  Comedy about the Economy (ep 1)

On the first episode I explore what the show's going to be about: the growing diconnect between -- well -- everything. Capitalism's completely transforming our world and even human nature itself. Sometimes for the better, often for worse, and mostly both. Goal here: to understand what the fuck is happening to the world and what to do about it.
