David Sirota of The Lever joins us for another fun conversation about a few stories that reflect deep cracks in our system. First we discuss The Lever’s story on how a municipality in Delaware could soon grant corporations the right to vote. We then get into how your bank is likely ripping you off through lower interest rates on your deposits relative to what they earn from the Fed on your deposit. Then we close with Obama’s recent comments on how wealth concentration lead to cynicism.
Before David joins us, we spend some time on the lost Titanic submersible.
A quick note, we’ll be posting full segment videos over on YouTube if you’d prefer to watch the show: https://www.youtube.com/@TheInsurgents
