Featuring Lu-han Li, Mr. Handy, and Mr. Handy

1. Cement

Lu Han Li joins how things are made to discuss technology and consumerism. Also, a big-time movie review for Glengarry Glen Ross (1992).

2. Caskets

Do we live in the height of the technological age or the bowels of a technocratic hellscape? There are only two options presented. How things are made investigates with Lu Han Li, but you decide. We can't stress this enough. You must make a decision. You won't catch us editorializing one bit. Thanks.

3. Soft Drinks

Mr. Handy and Mr. Handy demonstrate a lightly understood principle of plant life.

4. Glider Rockers

Most people don't know this, but how things are made is actually a genre of 19th century Russian literature. Featuring Lu Han Li!
