The Case for Ending Civilization

over 4 years ago

Is civilization worth it? Are the advances brought about by society offset by the misery it created? Are hunter/gatherers really happier? Would you give up hip hop and texting if you had a little more peace of mind? Would we be better off without civilization? Chris Ryan (Sex at Dawn) thinks so. Comic guests: Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Claudia O'Doherty (LOVE), and Natasha Leggero (Another Period, Moshe's wife) aren't so sure. This episode is as funny as things can be. Hunter/gather yourself some laughs.
