Show Notes

It’s a helluva corporate fantasy: oppressed coworkers join forces to kidnap their terrible boss and take over the company, increasing productivity and worker satisfaction by a zillion percent! So goes the classic film 9 to 5 featuring all-star gems Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda. These tenacious (and hilarious) gals got us thinking about the role of capitalism in our own lives. To help us diagnose society’s corporate ills, we brought back to the pod comedian and trans activist Dina Nina Martinez-Rutherford, who’s putting her money where her mouth is as a newly elected alderperson in Madison, WI.
