s01e04 - Why Does Stuff Cost Money?

Season 1, Ep. 4

In which Andrew explores a simple question very carefully: why does stuff cost money? Including critiques of Capitalism from the infamous Karl Marx.

Special thanks to my friend and her daughter, to Kellie Marie Lavin, and to Olúfémi O. Táíwò of Georgetown University.

Warning: most is child-friendly, but we start talking about "naked violence, genocide, theft, and plunder" at about 34:00. Not necessarily suitable for younger listeners. Discretion advised!
