Episode 44 of Inside the Box: Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

Posted on

I’ll try to be better about posting each episode of our podcast here. Here’s this week’s episode, in which we take a close look at the 1980s program Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. We discuss cultural and political-economic context of watching the wealthy in the 1980s through today, with asides on developing gourmet culture, conspicuous consumption, and and try to analyze how entertainment media frame representations of wealth and class.
