[Film Review] Lapsis, or Capitalism is a Ponzi Scheme

Comrades Andrea, Kali, Luke, and Nick join the show to discuss the film Lapsis, from writer/director Noah Hutton. In a parallel present, delivery man Ray Tincelli takes a job in the gig economy. He begins pulling cable to link together the new quantum trading market.

We talk about the film's realistic depiction of working in the gig economy and the power of organizing against it, the tactic of sabotage, and how capitalism is a ponzi scheme that keeps us sick and pits automation against the toiling masses and natural environment.

Thanks to Taylor Hess, film producer for making it possible for us to have this discussion, and director Noah Hutton for allowing us to screen the movie! You can find Lapsis online for rent at and Laborwave Radio highly recommends it for you and all your friends.
