E09 : Dumb luck makes the world go round

We talk about how one gets used to living in a tropical paradise, wealth differences in South-East Asia, Singapore as an example of social welfare and guiltily enjoying our white privilege.

The “Dollar Street” website – mentioned on the show – allows you to see how people really live across different cultures and levels of wealth. This is really a great resource and playing around with the different visualizations is extremely informative.

Like the show? Please leave us a review (5 stars or GO HOME) – it would really help us out.

Also we don’t mean to dwell on this, but :

  • Just throw on that ALL CAPS AND KEEP YELLING
  • Baby Jesus had bad Feng Shui (不好)
  • If you don’t look Aryan, you probably shouldn’t be a Neo-Nazi
  • We really, really hate monkeys
  • Bill has ALL the privilege
