This is a podcast episode titled, Why free stuff makes us crazy. The summary for this episode is: Why do we care so much when a crummy t-shirt gets shot out of a cannon at a sporting event? It's all about the power of "free," a price point that makes us feel high and act so irrationally that we forget that even free stuff comes with a cost. In this special episode of The Hustle Daily Show, we’re taking a look at how getting stuff for “free” affects consumer behavior. And to really get at the heart of the story here, we’re going to focus on 3 wildly different areas: free grocery store samples, free shipping, and free online content. Join our host Zachary Crockett and guest, Mark Dent (Writer at The Hustle) as they take you through our most interesting stories of the day. Thank You For Listening to The Hustle Daily Show.
