Episode details

welcome back friends! it’s session #2 of our Academic Half-Day series, and today we’re continuing our exploration of the Medical-Industrial Complex by dissecting how we buy & pay for healthcare - the other half of the dialectic that is reflected in the question of how we provide & administer healthcare (which is coming up in session #3). ‘buckle the fuck up’ folks, because this session is a deep dive on the history and birth of health insurance in the United States. other show highlights include Bae Guevara divulging his ‘dirty bulking’ technique (double fisting different-flavored Whataburger milkshakes) and Sigmund Fraud signaling support for alternative medical therapies (revitalizing the Laudanum movement). part 2 coming soon.
