Micah White from Adbusters join us where we talk about culture jamming, Buy Nothing Day, and Carnivalesque Rebellion Week.
At the end of November, there is a week held aside for Carnivalesque Rebellion, which features Buy Nothing Day. This is an international week of resistance to the corporate culture that would have us all on hamster wheels. This is a week wherein all people are encouraged to reclaim their lives, dream big, and create action that supports a new way of engaging with one's life.
