John St. Augustine

Super Producer Cimcie is back on board The Bridge and it's a bit of a free-for-all. BeiBei introduces the team to the story of "The Monkey King" then Cimcie starts bringing in headlines that might have been missed, including an asteroid that was on its way to Earth and was worth more than a quadrillion bucks, and how her dad signed up for a one-way ticket to Mars, which prompts conversation around Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk wanting to go into space, and that there's a petition to not let them return being passed around by those who aren't fans of the billionaires. John makes a few points about how the free-market system has made Bezos and Musk billionaires, but they can't be blamed for creating platforms that have made them super-rich. Finally, the show becomes a serious conversation about the cost of living, how life has changed over the decades, and the importance of perspective.
