Cultural Cachet:

The Billionaire’s

Space Race

Hosted by Amanda Long & Julia Dyer 

Today, Amanda and Julia jump into a topic making headlines: billionaires going to space. Are these men really competing with each other, or is the media just assigning and old narrative to a new decade? (It’s probably both).  Every billionaire we discuss has a different motivation for space exploration, but what’s their responsibility in wealth inequality? Does it make sense to pour so much capital into private space exploration when people on the ground can’t afford healthcare? Through the lens of global wealth disparity, Bezos’s cowboy rocket ship adventure feels like an affront to those who need help now, unable to wait until we’ve established Mars colonies and satellite communities.

This is the season one finale. Tune back in in six to eight weeks for season two!
