This piece has been edited for typos and clarity.

Capitalism is the Problem – Episode 045

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote a few days ago. The inspiration was the recent layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

It turns out I had a whole lot to say about not only that situation but also about capitalism.
