Episode 5-1: We’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off

Hello Comrades,

We’re back. It is a bit later than we were hoping, but nevertheless it’s here. For the the next while we may end up not meeting our usual every two weeks. But rest assured we’ll continue to put out as often as we can (and we’ve got several guests lined up that we’re quite excited about).

For the episode, well the title pretty much sums it up. Red and I are talking about how we’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off.
