75. Free The Smurfs

This week we’re talking Serfs – the indentured workforce of 1800s Russia, bonded to a lifetime of hard labor for zero pay as they slowly die from preventable diseases in their rat infested hovels.

We’ll be asking “Is that really that bad?” and hearing things like “Maybe my Serfs are actually having a great time?” as well as “Even if it won’t cost me much to significantly improve their lives, what’s the point? I can’t be bothered quite frankly”.

Plus we meet one man who’s showing his big red finger to the nay sayers as he tries to glam-up his Serfs, for better or worse.
