In this episode, Rob and Don delve into the topic of Affluence in the Media. Where do our ideas of wealth come from? How does the media shape our ideas of what it is to be wealthy? And why is Richie Rich a post-apocalyptic warlord? All this, and Sigmund Freud’s Nephew are waiting for you in this episode of the Department of Nerdly Affairs.

Would like to have been a part of this episode. I disagree with many of the points raised in your discussion (with all due respect). Enjoyed muchly regardless; I spend a lot of time at my computer (mechanical engineering designer and drafter) and I have ample time to absorb your podcasts.

Well…. we DO have a comment section…. *hint hint*
A lot of what’s said in these shows is our own opinions and theories, and a big reason for doing the podcast is to get them out there so’s we can test them against other theories.
