Should Greek life exist?
Play • 44 min

There’s a wildly popular, deeply powerful institution in the United States that breeds racism, classism, and elitism among young people and desperately needs to be dismantled. Want to guess what it is?

If you guessed it had to do with Natty Light, potential cult behavior, and 19-year-olds on power guessed right.

Today, I’m exploring the impacts and implications of Greek life in the United States, both the good and the bad. You might be able to guess what conclusion I come to about Greek life based on that first sentence, but what should we build in its place? How can we give young people room to socialize and gain leadership experience without...ya know...people dying?

We’re about to find out.

We have some astonishingly good partners this season: Learn more about our presenting sponsor, Fundrise, here. And learn more about Pluto here.
