One night in the Outline office, I looked over at a conference room and saw that a few of my coworkers had gathered to play what looked like a standard game of Monopoly. There was pizza. I thought I spotted (real) cash. My initial thoughts were: Why are you guys still here? Why am I still here? Can I have some pizza?
I would later learn that this was part of a social experiment concocted by Outline culture editor Jeremy Gordon: What would Monopoly be like with real money, crime, and order of play based on real-life privilege? It was smart. It was a little twisted. And you can hear our team breaking down while attempting Jeremy’s rules on today’s episode.
