Episode #28 - Flicking A Farthing
Play • 2 hr 22 min

The exhaustion of a Hollywood assistant, the commitment to volunteering for a charity and the shaming of a working actor all lead to a long reflection on what we owe to each other, whether it comes to the service industry, the sad state of the world or the entitlement of human nature. Thankfully, The Good Place is here to save us all, and they have the podcast to prove it.

Meanwhile, Mitch is disgusted by the development of video-game add-ons that prey on FOMO, but needs to use a metaphor about pizza to allow his companions to commiserate, and just in time for Hanukkah, Natalie is mourning her lack of Hebrew, and we delve into the cultural experience of immigrant parents choosing to teach or not teach their second generation children their own native language. Also, Anton Yelchin - bless his beautiful soul - sure was in a lot of movies about crazy rich murder teens.
