It’s Demand Week at BTR!

On today’s episode, Kevin Ashton of Quartz explains how corporations, not the great democracy of YouTube, made “The Harlem Shake” go viral.

The Harlem Shake YouTube video.

And later, Alternet’s Les Leopold tells us a tale of a publicly-owned bank that’s helping the deep red state of North Dakota prosper in a stagnating economy.

Spoken word segments from this week’s podcast feature the talents of Maggie Lloyd and Good Ghost Bill.
