Turbulent Times & Hard Cider

With everything that is currently going on in the world, is it any wonder dystopian fiction has been booming?

This week, Sam and John talk with noted author, lecturer, and essayist James Howard Kunstler (Jim) about why the world seems to be falling apart and what we can do about it. They discuss themes from Jim’s dystopian “World Made by Hand” series, and wonder if it could really happen in the United States today. Have our greed and monetary system pushed the envelope too far? Is there any turning back? Will John’s hard cider turn out okay? The answers to these and other questions are in this week’s Trading Perspectives podcast.
