SE 12 Ep15 :Collecting My Thoughts

In this episode I try to do some pre production for my radio show surrounding the concept of poverty. I question my experience of poverty and The Reverse American Dream and if it is just relates to my personal mental health issues or it is more of a global post Great Recession Issue. I also talk about my experience reading a history book on the 20th century and how my concept of socialism is different due to coming of age after The Cold War and the fall of The Berlin Wall.
