Episode Info:

Thirty-Five year old Chris Brooks parlayed his doctorate in French Existentialism into a full-time gig at Oregon's largest community college.  Hear Chris dish on why our parents' generation could go to college for cheap, how elite institutions self-consciously promote the romance of academia, and why we are still fascinated by the Existentialists who smoked cigarettes and wore all-black on the left bank of Paris after WWII.
