Episode Five: The Founder

McDonalds. It’s as American as apple pie. More American than Ted Cruz. Probably less American than a mailbox shaped like a tractor. But how did this global giant start? Well as it turns out, it was just a case of a lot of ingenuity, a lot of hard work and a tiny bit of corporate theft. And it is all laid out for you in The Founder, a biopic of the man who started it all (and by started it, I mean happened into it, took it, made a lot of money from it and screwed the ones who actually started it).  It’s as American as McDonalds! Do you want fries with that?
