Jack-and-David

When your favorite sitcom characters take their obligatory once-a-series trip to Vegas or Atlantic City…

…why is there never a scene where they find a way to pay for it?

THIS WEEK: editor-in-chief Jack O’Brien is joined (in-studio!) by editors Kristi Harrison, and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to discuss how TV and movies have completely shattered our expectations when it comes to how money actually works. From having zero medical bills to living in swanky post-apocalypse digs, entertainment’s warped your brain and you don’t even know it.

But I now think that anthropology may have it wrong. In working with Booth, I have come to realize that the quiet man, the invisible man, the man who is always there for friends and family — that’s the real alpha male.”
