Bertolt Brecht was the force behind some of the most popular and influential theater of the 20th Century. But he didn't make plays to entertain. He made them to wake people up to the insanity around them.
This episode delves into Brecht's background and work, his philosophy and his legacy... and leads to some surprising places.
This is the first in a sequence inspired by the Allegory of the Cave, from Plato's Republic.
