During the most recent episode of Question Culture (a bi-weekly socio-political podcast), Lornett and Brian discussed the growing wealth gap. They explored how inequality leads to a variety of public health problems, how the rich use their power to keep most of the population poor, and provided examples of how both Democrat and Republican administrations have served the rich at the expense of the poor and working class. Check out the episode.


As you know, at Waking Writer we don’t focus on writing and literature in a vacuum. All writing and art operates within a broader social and political context. Catch up on the Question Culture podcast here.
