Ep. 77: UB All That U Can BI

Do you believe in basic income? NEAT. You should write a speculative fiction short story about basic income. If you do that really well, you will be awarded with a BASIC INCOME. We're not kidding, and you should totally enter this contest (and then give us a cut on Patreon, obviously.)

We're talking about this short story competition, some other UBI related news in general, and also catching up on a really bad month during which we were off the air--from the Vegas shooting, to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, to the President of the US Virgin Islands having a public existential crisis (or you know, just being really ignorant).

All that and more on FUTURE LEFT PODCAST!
