In Episode 2, Brit, Dylan, and David discuss urbanism in the wake of the November elections, and how it relates to larger discussions of technocracy and populism. Using Randolph Bourne's essay Twilight of Idols as a launching point, the boys consider Jane Jacobs' unique role as both the preeminent visionary and iconoclast in urbanism.
