When do you launch the rest?

So important

This is a must listen! Why have I never heard about this before? This is huge.

A good listen, but...

A good listen, but..the fact that the episodes’ storylines sometimes lack a natural fluency, and the exhausting theme song being repeated unnecessarily several times in each episode, drags this podcast down to only three stars.
Otherwise, a good entrance to learning about one of the biggest financial schemes in modern time.
