While the 20th century witnessed many experiments in communal Utopian living, the great wave which founded the 19th-century religious, secular, and radically self-relian utopian communities had begun to subside. Some of the 19th-century groups were established and depended on the strength of their leaders, those which survived into the 20th century had to alter their way of life significantly, as traditional rural life evolved due to the industrial, economic and scientific progress in the larger society, as well as a lack of wi-fi. General causes relating to the demise of these utopian colonies have to be explained individually, as each Utopian community faced different circumstances, often but not always involving bedbug incursions.

On the FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND, we will attempt to find a single unifying reason to why Utopian societies never work out. The answer is a mystery that nobody has ever been able to solve -- what could be the fatal flaw? -- but Karen Carpenter, Bob-Marc, and Sherilyn Connelly will give it their best shot.

NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND: No, really, it'll totally work this time.
