Imagine a great and glorious golden podcast, filled with as many or as few boxes as your heart could desire. What price would you be willing to pay for that podcast? I don't mean on patreon, I'm talking cost in human suffering. Could you truly enjoy such a podcast knowing that it relied on the constant pain of one poor co-host at the hands of the other cohost? Would you continue to partake of the pernicious podcast, or would you be one of the ones who unsubscribes away? This week we're doing the much requested classic The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas by Ursula K. Le Guin and we're covering the various options in the field of distributive justice. Spread the love around!
