On Point - 27 - Anthony Lappé: Underground Economies in Viceland's "Black Market"

Joining us this week is Anthony Lappé, showrunner for Viceland’s “Black Market with Michael K. Williams.” Navigating the line between empathetically portraying subjects and glamorizing them. Anthony’s gravitation toward stories on the margins. Including broader global, social, and political contexts in a short documentary format. Focus on issues versus characterization. Vice’s coverage of “Lean,” the southern drink built on cough syrup. Black market economies from an innovation standpoint. @AnthonyLappe on twitter
