Description

What's the point of money? The answer might seem obvious: we need it to get paid for our work, and to buy the things we need. But there's also a deeper way to look at the role of money in our lives. This week we explore an anthropologist's take on the origin story of money. What if the cash and coins we carry are not just tools for transactions, but manifestations of human relationships?

it's pretty funny that I listed to this episode the day after my husband and I signed papers to buy a house together with our friend, with the exact same reasoning as the anthropologist of this episode. That was such a lovely surprise, we're not completely weird it turns out! Interesting episode!
