114 - I Owe My Soul To The Factory Store

September 20, 2021

Coming to a working class near you: entire towns owned and operated by Amazon. Don’t worry, it’s for your own good!

We have a few updates on Britney, Byron, and Buffalo, and for a palate cleanser we talk about Barcelona reclaiming space from cars to create public green space.
