Reimagining American Community

Pete and I interview Matt Bruenig, founder of the People’s Policy Project, a think tank which hopes to avoid corporate capture by using crowd-funding for support. We gab about stuff like universal basic income, social wealth funds, and why libertarianism seems cool when you’re in high school. Pete and I also talk about James Keenan’s Moral Wisdom and the L.A. Kitchen project.
