I recently listened to a really good podcast discussing the overpricing and debt servitude system of higher education in the USA, in the context on one type of possible solution, slanted toward helping people avoid debt and reach financial independence. The general thrust is about financial independence, but there's a lot of good discussion on why college is such an overpriced scam, and ways around it.
