Guest: David Zach
Some topics are supposed to be off limits. Race, gender, sex, slavery. But they are all more connected than we know. Except for a few weeks out of the year we in American tend to forget that today there are more slaves than at any other time in our planets recorded history; and we are happily ignorant. But we can't be any longer. David Zach, from Remedy Drive, and I discuss what it looks like to see humans being treated like simple commodities and how we are able to help.
