GONZO: American Stonehenge (E7)

GONZO arrives at Billy the Kid’s gravesite on the former estate of one of Max’s distant ancestors in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. They discuss the path to evil that the fight for survival might bring, whether in the case of the fictional Walter White of Breaking Bad or the Wild West mythical character that was the ‘Boy Bandit King.’ They also look at Max’s distant relative’s tombstone and note that the ‘great builders’ of America are no longer with us, but, in fact, we have a more locust private equity model of the great fortunes going to those who dismantle and hollow out all that was built before them. Max and Stacy then drive out for Denton, Texas but first make a detour to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. They discuss ‘American Stonehenge,’ and whether or not it is art, an homage to the time when America made great cars and now it is all run into the ground. In Denton, TX, they meet banker and author, Mitch Feierstein, on an old, rickety bridge. They discuss the myths of America being Big Oil once again as figments of our imagination built upon a real pile of unpayable debt. Mitch also talks about his experience with the rise of anti-Semitism and where the fault lies. After some serious conversation, the group heads out for some Texas brisket.

A Family Man and Anti-Hero GONZO (E6)

GONZO arrives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where tourism is booming thanks to the latest, greatest American anti-hero, Walter White, the fictional high-school teacher turned meth kingpin in the hit TV series, ‘Breaking Bad.’ After a brief stop at Los Pollos Hermanos, they visit the laundry service where the fictional labs were filmed for the series. They discuss the family man who turned evil under a healthcare system like the lawless and dangerous Wild West that drove pioneers and cowboys to become the quickest-draw gunslinger possible. Max then visits the Candy Lady in downtown Albuquerque to talk about the ‘consequences of our choices.’ She believes we cannot forget the past but that we must also remember that it brought us to today, and we need to move beyond all that is tearing us apart. They also discuss the high costs of Obamacare and the financial hardships it has brought. GONZO then drives out of town toward Billy the Kid’s gravesite.
