Thriving in Dystopia

Ep 61: Having and Being Had Bookclub (side episode)

November 10, 2021

In a side episode, the Crew was invited to partake in a bookclub with friends Mike and Dan.  The book is Eula Biss’ Having and Being Had.  The selection of this book came out of conversations about the discomfort with homeownership.  The book, told in 2-3 page chapter vignettes, brings out the contradictory experiences in living in late capitalism.  This discussion aimed at the first 2 sections: consumption and work.
