Cultural Mash-UP

PRESENTED ON JUN 03, 2016
IN ELLENSBURG @ VOL 6

Lucas Spivey says, your culture and other cultures are going to keep coming together. It's going to explode into products that have a market - like Cool Runnings - or things that are outlandish - like Jello wrestling - or sometimes things that are just forgettable - like McHuevos Rancheros. Like it or not, it’s a pretty interesting time to be alive.
