04. Creating change: The stories we have and the stories we need

Greg and Big Mike discuss the way stories, fictional or not, influence how we think about the world, how we think about what is possible in the world, and how we need to shift our stories to shift what we think is possible.

03. Studying history: What does real change look like?

In this transitional episode, Greg and Mike talk more about culture, which includes not just the world but the way we think the world, and offer some concrete examples while opening up a discussion about the history of capitalism writ large.

02. What is our object of study? Seeing things holistically

Greg and Mike discuss the vital importance of thinking holistically, working with an expanded concept of ‘culture’ to define why we have to think about material and immaterial issues at the same time, and some of the common intellectual habits that prevent us from seeing things holistically.
