e294. Black Friday and Toy Riots!

It’s Black Friday week. There’s simply no way you don’t know that. Even if you’re not from the United States, where we just had Thanksgiving, if you’re on the Internet and listening to our show you are at least aware of the Black Friday sales that have just become pervasive throughout the world. But how did we get here? On today’s show Hannah and Mav welcome back returning guest Stephanie Siler and new guest Jonathan Alexandratos to talk about the history of Black Friday, the culture surrounding it, and the craziness of the violence involved, particularly with toy riots. Have you ever been to a Black Friday sale? Would you ever go again? What are your thoughts? Listen and let us know in the comments.
