S-Town, Being Lazy, & Grocery Price Wars- Link Roundup



  • S-Town – I binge-listened to everyone’s new favorite podcast, which stands for Shit-town, Alabama. It’s as addicting as advertised, but also sort of disturbing and very unsatisfying. I very much echo the sentiment of the Vox article S-Town is a stunning podcast. It probably shouldn’t have been made. [This American Life]
  • Georgetown, Louisiana – this blew my mind. Georgetown university sold slaves in the 1800’s to remain afloat. They’re now one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Recently it was discovered that the descendants of those slaves live in a poor area of Louisiana. What, if any, responsibility does Georgetown have to those people? Part two is here. [Planet Money]
  • Mr. Money Mustache — Living Beautifully on $25-27K Per Year – Tim interviews one of my favorite bloggers, Mr. Money Mustache. If you haven’t heard of MMM, his tagline is “financial freedom through badassity”
