Shopping | Episode 3

In this episode, hosts Mark Schulz and Alison Hager discuss the noun “shopping.”

ReNouned is a podcast for the curious. We dust off the commonplace to look for shiny new relevance as we challenge ourselves to think critically about the objects that surround us. How do they echo humanity’s past, reflect the present, or foreshadow the future?
