Goodfellas (on how finding identity in power and privilege leads to despair) S1 E12

This is a special episode where I interract with audio clips from Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas.  The film is a wonderful example of how finding identity in power and privilege leads to despair.  Of course, the movie is extremely entertaining.  I think part of this is due to how honest and direct the characters own up to their own desire.  Let’s get into it.
