    Hail Corporate

    We are Friendshipping and we’re here to say Jeff Bezos sucks in a major way. That being said, let’s discuss how to be cool to your friends when they aren’t participating in the same protest or boycotts as you are. This episode is about the balance of holding your friends accountable while letting them be imperfect people living in an imperfect society.

    Content warning: this episode is all about capitalism, and there's occasional discussion of climate horror. If that's not something you can handle right now, go right to question 2 at 23m22s which is a little lighter! We make fun of Lena Dunham and Ben Affleck a lot.
