Affording Ethics

Inspired by a conversation about shampoo, this one gets deep: what’s our responsibility to make ethical choices if we can’t afford them?

(We stopped recording the video, but if you loved watching us on YouTube and have some Patreon bucks to throw our way for editing, we’d happily bring it back.)

You can help make Because Money happen for as little as $1 a month through Patreon. You can also support the show by listening, sending us questions, and giving us those pretty gold stars on iTunes.
