The Depressingly American Story of the Monopoly Board Game
Ned and Meg revisit the historical waypoints along the existence of Monopoly, our favorite polarizing game. If you are lucky enough to have people in your life still willing to engage you in a game of Monopoly, you are probably a good hearted person. That’s nice. However, everything about Monopoly is ruthless and rewards avarice and that’s what we like to discuss. See also: daring escapes from Nazis, the perpetual rebranding of Monopoly, DIY sets, and so on. Welcome to the cult. Wash your hands, wear a mask, get the shots, don’t be a dick, thanks for listening!
