Cumulatively we Americans are in a MOUNTAIN of credit card debt! As a nation thick with consumerism we've all got 'em, and we all use 'em! Because we've all gotta have things we can't afford and want them now! Even if that APR is 30% or more! We take a moment to step back and ask how all this came to be. How did they ever convince us this was an okay way to live and why have we accepted it as a normality? And how did they figure out ways to punish us for not having credit cards?! All that and more in this episodes discussion!
