If you think building a new sports stadium is a great way for your city to make more money, think again. This episode explains what can go wrong. Slow dialog: 1:22 Explanations: 3:00 Fast dialog: 16:42 Mariana: How long do you think it will be before the stadium is finished? Klaus: Don’t hold your breath. The plan for the stadium is fundamentally flawed, but the government rammed it down the throats of the voters. Mariana: Do you really think the project is doomed? Klaus: Haven’t you heard the reports of corruption and poor management? They’re cutting corners left and right. I wouldn’t be surprised if the stadium is being built with shoddy materials. Mariana: Then the entire thing is a joke! Klaus: Yes, and the joke is on us. Government officials are going through the motions, not caring about the results. All they care about is lining their pockets. Mariana: I have heard about the cost overruns. Do you think the city will ever recoup the money spent on this project? Klaus: Maybe a little, if we can sell the entire thing as scrap metal! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
