Journalist/musician Mark Taylor-Canfield talks about life in Seattle where the hour minimum wage, marriage equality, immigration rights & legal marijuana make it one of the most progressive cities in the USA.

MTC explores some of the nuances of the Emerald City currently monolpolized by Amazon, and where it’s a toss up over whether the real billionaire Wizard is actually Bill Gates, Paul Allen or Jeff Bezos.
