"When ISIS takes control of a town, they also take control of its businesses and its economy. Today on the show: We examine a budget that got smuggled out of ISIS territory. We hear what it's like to live under an ISIS regime, including where people keep their money, how taxes get collected, and a $50 dollar candy bar."

So enlightening on the economics of isis. Smuggling Oil with barrels by hand. These guys remind me of the for mongol horde after listening to this and Dan Carlin's Hardcore History.
