Money makes the world go round, does it not? Let the capital flow, so its profits may trickle down in a wellspring of bounty for all … except that the greater the flow, the faster it trickles up, away from the masses and into the hands of a rarefied, entitled elite that never seems to stop wanting more. In this week’s episode, Women Make Movies’ Executive Director Debra Zimmerman joins us for a discussion of the new Netflix series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, which follows the rapacious, billionaire pedophile’s life and career while giving voice to the women he abused. Then, Bart and Chris interview director Justin Pemberton about his recent Capital in the Twenty-First Century, a rousing, enraging examination of how the world is rapidly heading away from the equalizing tendencies of the 20th century’s middle period. Sad, but true. Now what are you going to do about it?
