Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about the effect of urbanization on culture and media, the origin of the dime novel, and Jewish immigration to America leading to the birth of Hollywood. They also discuss mass-produced culture throughout American history, how the originally unintended effects of film are now intentionally used to shape culture, and what purposefully cultivating the culture of your family looks like.
