Episode notes
In this episode, we talk all about Jeremy Bentham: Who is he? A weird guy obsessed with round buildings, and also one of the most influential social theorists of the modern era (for the worse, in our opinion). Why should you care about him? Because he fundamentally changed the way people understand politics and law, in a really stupid way. What kinds of things did he do? Write lots of unwanted letters and have his body stuffed so no one would miss him when he died. This is the first part of our three part series on Bentham, so be sure to check back next time for his take on the Declaration of Independence!
