Episode 7: Dying for the Economy
Another, smaller, Enclave episode with personal musings on the recently adopted notion of "Dying for the Economy".
"A Healed Femur": I recalled a renown anthropologist, Margaret Mead, and her notion that the first signs of civilization was the healed femur and how that indicated that there was a society around the wounded person to bring them back to health.
Episode 6: When will the Billionaires Save Us Already?
This is a 'lite' episode which I'm tentatively calling Bite Sized Enclave where I tackle a single question that's been bugging me lately or responding to something that came up in an earlier episode. It's a little bit of train of thought, not edited down, just me and the microphone.
I wonder why we can't have wealthy eccentrics like Teddy Roosevelt and how much we need someone like him and the ultra-wealthy to save our planet.

Episode 3: Politics are never Permanent
Matthew Raffety is a professor, lecturer and author of history with an emphasis on American History. We talk about the mythology of the Two Party system and how the founding generation were skeptical of such an element in politics. What does this mean for our current society? What does it mean for the future? Come speculate with us.
