Are we still living in the shadow of the twentieth century’s Mega Event? World War II is the backdrop for a wide-ranging, often surreal, conversation about generational experiences of war, the European economy of the 1920s and, of course, Cobra Commander and Wario.  My guests, economics professor Andrew Bossie and filmmaker Robin Blotnick, share their thoughts on issues that include the legacy of World War II, the politics of playing (and loving) Call of Duty, and the future of American warfare.
