[Act Out! 138] - A Sanctuary from Depressing Consumerism

This week on Act Out, we're in the midst of consumerism's high point, fresh off the heels of black Friday steals, sliding towards the most ironically plastic holiday of the year. Meanwhile, consumerist capitalism is tearing us apart – not only from each other but from ourselves. Depression and mental health issues are on the rise and we're told to buy, buy, buy. Yet in the din of dollar signs and bottom lines, there are community efforts to connect on deeper levels – to highlight the sacred, the profound and to work together to create, build and resist. We sit down with the Sanctuaries here in the devil's den to explore those ideas.
